4 week status...

I lost 2 pounds!  yay!  That brings my total to 4 pounds lost in 4 weeks! 1 pound/ week is exactly what I need to be doing :)

This past week I exercised more than the previous one.  I also started a food diary...which lasted about 3 days! :(  Since I'm nursing it just wasn't accurate for me.  I tried to make it on 1224 calories/day a couple of those 3 days...and by the third day I felt like I had been fasting for a week!  So maybe I need to call my doctor and see how many calories he suggests for a nursing mother.  I read somewhere (maybe fitness magazine?) that it should be more like 1900 calories/day.  That sounds better!

Good luck in your efforts to lose weight and we'll see how I do this week!

Good for you. I'd say listen to your body. I can definately tell when I haven't had enough to eat. I feel like I'm literally starving. Here is a good link about calories: It's a good nursing mom's site.

Sorry to comment twice. Here's another good site about calories: Nursing moms should take about 300-500 calories more a day.
