Not losing weight (breastfeeding)

So I’m 9 weeks PP and exclusively pumping but not losing ANY WEIGHT!! Like I’m eating a little less and pretty sure I’m in a caloric deficit, going on walks etc but I’m just not losing weight. I lost. 25 lbs in the first 2 weeks after birth but gained 20 back in the month after. Have only managed to lose 10pounds (whcih came off quickly in like 10 Days) and not lost anything since. I still have 50 lbs to lose before I’m pack to my pre pregnancy weight 😭 pls help am I the only one whose body literally is holding onto every gram of fat??

This happened to me with my first and is happening again. Slowly transitioning to formula atm (for other reasons) and noticing a difference

You're not alone! I've still got 12kg to lose at over 11 weeks PP and it's stayed at that since week 2. I'm eating healthily and getting daily walks in, and I'm EBF. My body is definitely clinging on to all the extra bits 🤦‍♀️🤣 In time I'm hoping I'll be able to start a proper exercise regime again and go running etc...but in reality that might be a year or so away, so in the meantime I've temporarily accepted it and got myself some boho clothes and I'm having lots of fun trying to dress like a fortune teller 💕😂
