I gained 75 lbs. during my pregnancy (mostly due to gestational diabetes) and my son is now thirteen months old and since giving birth I've lost a grand total of... Six pounds, all during the birth!!! Grrrrrrr... I do everything right (few sweets, lots of water, calorie counting...) I stay at 1500 cals a day and STILL haven't lost weight! Anybody have any advice??? I'm starting to go nuts. I'm uncomfortable, I can't find decent clothing, and I feel huge and ugly. Is there something I'm forgetting to do, or is there some secret to it? I'm not sedentary, I go to school and do housework and exercise when I have time (not often, but sometimes), but nothing has worked.Answer Question
Go to your doc to get a physical. Maybe there is a reason for it. If you are calorie counting alone you should loose some weight. It could be your thyroid. Or it could be stress. I would also suggest a free web site I joined to loose weight that has helped educate me and hold me accountable. (logging food you eat, as well as exercise)

I am the opposite... I cannot gain weight. I think it is just as hard to gain as it is to lose. Good luck mama!
