Maybe try Stevia as a sweetener. You can make your own desserts. might help the sweet tooth without the cal.

My body is definitely in worse shape with this my second baby. My belly is like a big floppy squish fest. There is no sucking it in. It is so embarrassing. I am plotting to get some everyday shapeware. Mirrors are depressing. I also have stretch marks covering my entire belly some go as far as 2 inches above my belly button. I am only 5 pounds away from my pre baby weight and actually weigh less than when I got pregnant with the first baby. But my body is trashed now and looks the worst. I agree it is very frustrating!

Matthew 4: 4- Jesus answered; it is written, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

I AGREE WITH MAGNOLIAHONEY. I LOST THE WEIGHT RIGHT AWAY AFTER MY FIRST 2. THEN I GOT PREGNANT WITH TWINS. emoticon . NOW I'M A LITTLE OLDER SO THE WEIGHT SEEMS TO BE STICKING AROUND. ITS NOT SO EASY GETTING RID OF IT AFTER A FEW KIDS. emoticon I DONT TEND TO GAIN ALOT DURING PREGNANCY(14 LBS WITH MY FIRST AND HE WAS 8LB 7oz, 16 LBS WITH MY SECOND HE WAS 8LB 9oz, AND 35LBS WITH THE TWINS. THEY WERE TAKEN 3 WEEKS EARLY AT 7.2 AND 7.8)AND I EAT ALOT DURING PREGNANCY BUT I TEND TO GAIN WEIGHT ABOUT 3-6MONTHS AFTER HAVING THEM. I'M NOT SURE WHY I'M NOT LOSING WEIGHT EITHER BECAUSE I'M GOING TO THE GYM 4X A WEEK BUT ITS DEFINITELY STICKING AROUND. I DO BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN I JUST WISH IT WOULD HAPPEN FASTER.

I feel ya girl.
My second daughter is 8mths and it's taken me a while to take off the pounds. Slow and easy. I think for me it was also the lack of energy, having to deal with an almost 3yr old and lack of sleep with new one. It does happen, just stay focused emoticon

Our bodies change as we get older and as we have babies. Cheer up and remember it takes at least 9 months to go back to what you started with. Enjoy the nursing and try to eat healthily while you do - but don't go crazy. Good luck!

Going back where I came from...

DONE!
Done feeling fat...
Done thinking fat...
Done being fat...
Done WISHING I wasn't fat!
Done THINKING others THINK I'm fat!

Ok, not really, but I'm frustrated. My body is just so different after having my girls. I know it has only been 10 weeks, but my body bounced right back into shape after having my first daughter. It has been 6 years so I'm older and I had twins so I was much bigger and I wasn't allowed to exercise during my pregnancy, but still, its frustrating. Its not so much the weight, I've been this weight before, but its all proportioned differently. I just have this big tire around my middle.

Anyway, my girls spit up a lot and were really fussy so I cut out dairy and my Diet Coke habit. This helped (yay!) but now I'm eating a ton of sweets to quiet the sugar cravings from Diet Coke withdrawal. I hope to BF for 6 months--so I might just give up trying to control my eating until then. Then I can have my Diet Coke back and stop eating a box of cookies a day. :)

At least I can exercise now! And the girls are giving me nice arm muscles now that they're getting bigger. :)
