Hi Bri,

I'm not that active on this group or Spark, but I'm trying to be, so I wanted to send you a quick hello. Congrats on your new baby and losing all the baby weight already! I just got to that point, and my little girl is 7 months old already. It's mostly because I gained a bunch when she was about 1-2 months because I had this insane appetite.

Sorry to hear you're having supply issues. I'm a CLE (Certified Lactation Educator) and I'm working towards becoming a LC - so perhaps I can help. Did this suddenly happen? How old is your baby now? How often are you nursing? Are you at home/work? Pumping? Give me some info and I'd be happy to try and help you!!

Best wishes,
Cherri

Baby on board!! Due June 20th!!

Why don't you think you are producing enough milk?

Is the baby not gaining weight? Is the baby lethargic?

Make sure you are not UNDER eating, and make sure you are drinking enough water, especially after exercises.

Hi everyone! I'm Bri. I've known about SparkPeople.com for a long time but never really used the tools. Well... I had a baby in November and lost all of the baby weight. Now I'm ready to get healthy and shed the plus size me. I'm been plus size for years now, but it's not until having a baby that I really see the importance of being a healthier me. I want to be around to see my little girl grow. :-)

An added incentive, I'm participating in a Biggest Loser contest at my job. My husband and I, both started following the suggested diet menus this weekend. I'm hoping to take on the1st place cash prize of $450 in April!

Also, I'm been having trouble with breastfeeding. I just don't seem to be producing enough milk. I'm hoping becoming a healthier me will help to change that.

I'm looking forward to this weight loss/life change journey!
