Lookin hot!

So I had my son four months ago and I've lost all of my pregnancy weight plus 12 more pounds, and I'm still losing even though I'm not exercising and I'm eating junk food.....Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining BY ANY MEANS, (it's actually quite nice, cuz I'm loving the way my body is looking) but it's like my metabolism has changed after giving birth! Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, how long did it last for?

  • Won't last long if you keep eating they way you are. If you want to keep looking good. I suggest you start eating better and do some exercise.

  • this did happen with me and it was my thyroid and it lasted for as long as it took my thyroid to basically destroy itself. I ended up with a major mass (nothing to worry about) and a none functioning thyroid. I would have a doc check it out thoig.
