  • i'm losing weight because we don't have the food for me to eat in the house.... but if we did! OH MY GOSH I would eat all day. i'm already 8 pounds from pre pregnancy size, but I'm always so hungry and i have low blood sugar if i don't get enough to eat so that DOES NOT help. I don't know what to do about eating anymore

  • I TOTALLY did. I had the appetite I shouldf have had while pregnant! It's gone now, though, I don't want to eat (or drink) ANYTHING. I'm getting really panicky about not getting enough sustinence to keep my breastmilk going...totally freaking!

  • YES!, I thought it was just me! I still feel as if I am pregnant. It is so frustrating because I can't lose the 'baby weight'. I just keep telling myself that it won't be forever. Nice to see that it wasn't my imagination. lol.

  • I didn't but you have to remember that you burn some 700 calories just to make milk, that doesn't include your child's exact needs...

  • In the beginning, I couldn't get enough food/drink. It lessened over time.
