I had my baby 4 months ago and I noticed I lost the first 20 pounds easily and now Im starting to gain weight, I thought breastfeeding helps you loose weight? I been eating alot of bread cheese milk and plain food. im not sure what i should do differently. I kickbox 2-3 times a week. I still got 40 pounds to loose to be my prepregnancy weight and now im gaining!!! Any advice?

Sounds pretty normal to me. Check the inches rather than the pounds. I often lose inches when working out but actually put on pounds because of the muscle mass.

Eating a lot of bread cheese and milk is probably the culprit.  Those foods aren't very good to consume large amounts of.  Try varying your diet and adding lots of veg and fruit.
