Losing weight while breastfeeding
I recently quit breastfeeding; see my post on it here.
While I was breastfeeding, I was losing 2-3 pounds a week and eating lots. (Two lunches, seconds at dinner, lots of brownies, etc.) I’ve figured out why:
This first week after breastfeeding, Caleb is eating 700
calories a day. Assuming he was consuming 700/day breastfeeding,
that’s 4900 calories/week which is about 1.5 pounds a week and that
doesn’t count production costs!
Am I sorry I quit? Nope. I’ll just use all my extra time to get some exercise, which I have really missed.
