  • I've heard it's easier to lose weight after you're done nursing.

  • Your body holds onto the last few pounds when you are nursing in case your body needs the fat stores. You don't need it anymore so your body gave it up. Congrats!

  • Not me, I couldn't lose those last 10 pounds for anything, I was trying so hard. Now I stopped nursing and I lost those 5 pounds effortlessly.

  • I didn't breastfeed and I shed the weight a lot quicker than my breast feeding friend. I'm not sure what all the hype is about.
