    I'd love more friends! I am 28 weeks pregnant with my fourth baby and will have about 25/30 pounds to lose at the end of this pregnancy in July. Trying to stay on top of my calorie consumption and trying to stay diligent with workouts to make that as smooth a road as possible!

    I'm a new mom, but been on a weight roller coaster my whole adult life, topped 215 when I gave birth in March. Been off​ mfp for a year, now im down to 188 & my goal is 150lbs. Since I'm breast feeding I read I should not go below 1800 calories, has any one else heard that? Feel free to add me :)

    Yeah I'm reading we gotta eat more cause we burn calories while breastfeeding, I'm losing weight bc of breastfeeding.

    I'm 10 weeks PP. Had my baby via C section. Also had a resuturing after few days of C section. So i'm severely impaired in terms of workout selection. My doctor just cleared me for low impact exercises. I was 192lbs before delivery, now i'm 172lbs. My ultimate goal is 132lbs. Feel free to add me.

    7 weeks post partum to a beautiful little boy (my first). I gained about 25 lbs during pregnancy but I was higher than I wanted to be when I got pregnant.

    I've lost about 8 lbs since birth and am looking to lose 25+.

    I'd love more breastfeeding and post partum mommies!

    Please add me too, and if there's a group I'd love to join (not sure how it all works).
    I'm 10 weeks post partum and breastfeeding. I gained 50 lbs indulging my way through pregnancy for the second time in 3 years and am now at 180 lbs. My goal is 140, and I was at about 150 pre pregnancy.
    I'm curious how you all work breastfeeding into mfp. I add 500 calories per day as cardiovascular exercise, but for the first week of using the app I mistakenly upped my goal by 500 as well as adding the exercise, oops! Made it easy to stay under for that week though!
    And congratulations to everyone for your babies. There's no better reason to have weight to lose, right?

    I'm here too. My daughter is five months old.

    I was 227lbs when she was born (213lbs prepregnancy) and in the first 2 months I lost 40 pounds. Easily. I did no exercise, ate whatever I wanted, breastfed my baby, and the pounds melted off. It freaked me out because I have fought the weight loss battle for years with excercise and portion control and I was literally sitting in a chair or sleeping 24/7 and losing weight crazy fast. I used to say that pregnancy and breastfeeding is the best weight loss strategy I have ever experienced.

    Things have really slowed down for weight loss since March to about 0.5lbs lost weekly. I'm much more comfy with that.

    As far as including breastfeeding there are a few ways you can do it but only pick one or it will sabotage your progress! You can add breastfeeding as an "exercise" daily, or you can add it daily into your actual food diary as a negative calorie amount, or you can simply adjust your goal calories to naturally include nursing.

    I choose to set my own calorie goal and add 400 extra calories to my total personal goal to account for my daughter's needs. (2100 calories is the amount of calories I set to eat daily for a 0.5lb weekly loss) It isn't perfect but I'm happy with a slower loss currently.

    Feel free to add me as a friend. When I remember to log my food I log honestly, so if you can't stand seeing an occasional ice cream sandwich or the same lunchtime salad six days in a row I won't take it personally.

    Hi! Four months post delivery with my fourth child! I haven't lost even a single pound yet. With breastfeeding the weight just isn't going anywhere no matter how hard I try. I have about 20 lbs to lose to get back to my prepregnancy weight of 118.

    Hey Ladies! I'm a 29 yr old second time mom! Exclusively breastfeeding and looking to lose the remaining 40 pounds that I gained during pregnancy. I gained a total of 65 and my baby is now a month old. For two weeks now I have been eating roughly 1650 calories a day and it's had no negative impact on my milk supply. I have two weeks left until I'm cleared by my doctor for exercise due to my csection! Currently weigh 204, hoping to get my to my pre-pregnancy weight of 165. Looking for friends/motivation! Feel free to add me!

    Add me too. Just hit 4 months post partum. 2 sisters are getting married in the fall and I'm breast feeding so i have to keep myself in check lol. I was 185 8 weeks ago but lack of sleep, stress, and inaccurate logging/not caring had me gain 10 lbs. All those calories were delicious but definitely over indulged. Ultimate goal is to be 135 but by sept 1 I'd like to be at 160-165.
