Mom of 2 looking for accountability partners!

Hi everyone!

I am a mom of 2 boys, my youngest is just 3 months old!

Anyways, I would LOVE to get this baby weight moving plus some and I need some accountability partners! I also exclusively breastfeed so that helps but after the first couple months it hasn’t helped all that much 😂 of course that could be my fault since I have a hard time controlling my cravings sometimes especially with sweets! 😫

I would love to meet some other moms that would like to help each other to success!

I’d love to be friends on MFP, but I would even love it more if we could have a small group on Snapchat or something so we can stay in touch a little more personally and can message each other easier and send pics of our food or post workouts or whatever! If you’re interested let me know and I can set up a private group 💕

I am currently at my highest (non-pregnant) adult weight of 244 (this last pregnancy I got up to 255 but then lost 20lbs and then gained 10 back 🥴) and I know my biggest hurdle is with food. So I am not going to box myself into a specific diet type because I’ve done that plenty of times before and all it did was destroy my mental health regarding food even worse than it was before.

I just really want to focus on eating the stuff I know I should eat and the stuff I shouldn’t I need to just keep in mind moderation and be mindful of portion sizes. I’ll be the first to admit I HATE tracking and I may not be super consistent with logging my food and I’m fine with that. I need to fix my mental health first and I know what my triggers are so I am just going to work on that. So I’m going to start with just showing up everyday and trying my best to get to a healthy place for myself and my children 💙💚

I can’t wait to start this journey and have it actually STICK this time!

Thanks friends! 🥰

    Hi Im a mom of two girls aged 9 and 10. they are super active and I cant keep up it makes me so sad. I also went back to uni and am in my third year. My life is so busy that I am always eating on the fly and that usually means takeaways or freezer foods and obviously because I'm working so hard I deserve a treat every night :#:#. I am currently 220lbs with a goal of losing 70lbs and accountability would really help. I would love if you add me thanks :D

    I think a small group like that would be a great idea. If you have already started one id love to join.

    How did you go adding breastfeeding to the app - did you at all? My fiancé is exclusively breastfeeding our son and wants to start using MFP and wasn’t sure how accurate it would be for her atm

    Rule of thumb is that a baby exclusively breastfeeding burns about 500 cals. When it was me I only ever ate back 1/2 of those cals, but I had 60# to lose so there was no danger of me loosing my milk production.
