**Always check with your doctor before trying any form of diet if you’re breastfeeding.**

  •  Wish breastfeeding worked for me but alas it does not!    Gemma

  •  Yeah that happened to me the more u try the harder it is too loose.   Rose
  •  It is! I am using a lose it app now, watching how many calories I eat is a eye opener when I have to input it myself. Weather here sucks almost all the time and it’s hard to go walking outside with a toddler without him getting sick. I am thinking about trying AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge.    Amy
  •  Weight training, running and squats, so far so good.   Elizabeth
  •  Fell pregnant before I could start to lose it. Oops.    Megan
  •  Walking n walking N walking!!! + walking n not eating crap!    Kerrie

Walked and did c25k on treadmill. Recipes are easy.. Never lost weight so quickly, now just gotta work on first baby weight.    Olivia

I gained 20 kgs and now down 10 kgs. Had a emergency c section with a very very long recovery, unable to do any exercise for 3 mth. Bub is almost 6 months now, I think it’s a fair effort. I’ve lost 13 cm in 2 months. I wear a Fitbit best Christmas gift from my husband! all for me and for my baby boy 10 more kg to go.   Lauren
  •  No need to diet, just eat healthy and exercise, quick fixes and gimmicks are never a long term gain anyway.    Alana

  •  I eat dinner early with my baby/toddler around 5.30/6pm every night and snack very little before bed time. That has helped a little. But definitely need to do proper exercise to lose more…Sanny
  • Body trim! I’ve dropped 16.5kgs since the start of October. I’ve only got 2.5kgs to go to my goal weight. I’ve been walking nearly every day for about 40-60 mins and pushing a double pram… That really works you out. I also have been going for runs but that’s not very often due to my 7 month old. Breastfeeding didn’t really help me lose weight. I’m pretty surprised that I’ve still got a great milk supply with being in my diet. I did eat a bit more protein for each meal than what I was meant to.    Cherie
