  • I put on 40 lbs while pregnant. I gave birth to a 9 lb baby. Without dieting, i lost all but 5 of those lbs by 8 weeks PP & BF. I lost more after that, but i started dieting at that point.

  • I put on 38 pounds and lost all of it and then some. My daughter is 7 1/2 months old and still breast feeding. It is definetly a good way to burn calories. Especially for someone who doesn't like to exercise (like me! LOL).
