Struggling to get fit

Okay so I still breastfeed, and I'm CONSTANTLY starving. I struggle to ever feel full. But also, I have 20-25lbs to lose. I just want to get back into shape. I just don't have the motivation 😫 ugh. Please let me know what you've done to get back into shape and how you've found the motivation! I just want to feel good again. Also not to mention, I can't seem to steer clear of sweets and treats 😳😬 There's going to be a burn boot camp opening soon around the corner from me and I'm hopeful that I can get into that.

I used fitness pal to count calories. I put in my goal and it told me how many calories to eat and then I added 500 calories because that’s how much breastfeeding burns a day usually. I started going on walks but it was mainly the calorie counting that helped me because I have portion control issues. Also, it worked for me because I could still eat sweets, just not huge portions. I lost 30 pounds doing it and unfortunately I’ll have to do it again because im pregnant and gained a lot during pregnancy. Dieting sucks! Another thing that helped me was I found a group of people who wanted to diet it with me and we all put $20 in… whoever lost the biggest percentage after 3 months won all the money ❤️.

Joe wicks was great for me (pre pregnancy) and so many breastfeeding mum's on there they have a little online support group. The food is pretty amazing for a 'diet' to be honest. And 3 hours exercise a week is something that with a wee bit of planning you can squish in. I'll be doing it again post baby :)

Be careful what products you use while breastfeeding

I also am still breastfeeding and I was told that since my milk is not high in fat that I am one of the unlucky ones that don't lose weight while breastfeeding. I have struggled losing weight. I do if I eat 0 sugar, high protein and work out every single night for a half hour+...but I have to confess I can't live my life that way. Holidays, crazy schedules and low income do not help me to eat healthy. I lost 36lbs, gauned back 20, lost 10. I go up and down a lot. Been breastfeeding for 2 1/2 years straight now.

I hear u girl, breastfeeding and keeping up with good nutrition is hard. I use Herbalife nutrition which has been my lifesaver! I've lost 25lbs 5 yrs ago & kept it off & am so grateful that not only are MOST of their products safe for pregnant & breastfeeding mamas but they taste amazing & even have extra nutrition based around new mom's to make sure we get what we need to replenish what we lose! After just having my sixth child... this is so important for me. Hope this helps, if u ever need any help or encouragement, lemme know!

There's evidence that increasing your protein intake increases the fat on the milk I started tracking my protein intake and my milk immediately started to look richer in color and I feel fuller longer :)
