New mom friends

I would really like some fellow new mother friends on here. I know losing weight isn't too easy right after having a baby. I'm three and a half months postpartum. By the last day of my pregnancy I was weighing in at 197, and now I'm somewhere between 145-150. Still waiting to weigh in tomorrow. Once I hit 142 pounds ill be at my pre-pregnancy weight. But I'm looking to weigh somewhere between 120-130. So my journey is far from over!

    I find baby weight is the hardst to move and your SO sleepy with a little one! .. my "little" one is nearly 4 now and I was 120kgs (240lbs i think) after having him I got right back down to 65kgs (130lbs i think) but that has slowly over the last 3 years creeped back up to 79kg ( 158lbs) so im here to get back down to the 120-130 mark and am always happy to have other mums as friends so feel free to add me anyone! :)

    Breast feeding helped me to shed a lot of my baby weight. I have four kids. My baby is two years old now. Its much harder ther fourth time around.

    I know what you mean lol! I have two boys, and I've already lost the weight from my 3 month old, it's the weight before him that is hard to lose! My older son will be 6 this year.

    I'm not a new Mum, my daughter is 3, but I am wanting to close to my pre-baby weight again, and tone up a bit as well! Breastfeeding helped me drop the kilos really fast when my daughter was a baby, I just kind of stopped looking after myself as well as I could have, and now I'm wanting to better my health and get fit again :)

    My children are 4 and 2 so not really a new mum anymore. But I found that I lost the first chunk of weight quite easily with breastfeeding and walking lots with the pram (although I had to take it easy for a while as both mine ended up being C sections. But the next bit comes harder. I think the sleep deprivation can make you crave sugary foods as well, so try to be kind to yourself and keep your strength up with slow release energy foods such as bananas. Try to concentrate on eating healthily rather than cutting down the calories too much to start with and build up the exercise. I found I lost easier with my first as I was without a car for the first 9 months so we walked everywhere. Second time round I had a baby in a pram and a toddler who couldn't walk far so we used the car far more & I noticed the difference.

    Feel free to add me x
