    Fat loss / body composition while breastfeeding

    Hi Ladies,

    A little advice please. I'm 3 months post c-section and have been back to working out for the past month doing weight lifting and HIIT daily along with a high protein, moderate carb diet (protein oats post workout in the AM, protein salad for lunch, yoghurt and nuts for snack and healthy balanced dinner) around 1800- 200kcals per day I know breastfeeding burns around 500kcals a day.

    Pre-pregnancy I was 128lbs, 18% BF and in great shape. I exercised daily all through my pregnancy until the night before I had my baby. I'm 40 years old.

    Now, 3 months postpartum and I weigh the same as I did 10 days after I had my baby (I lost 20lbs within one week and have been holding onto the last 10lbs ever since)

    Mammas ... did you find that you held onto that last 10lbs until you stopped exclusively breastfeeding? My BF is now 28% and weight is exactly 10lbs over despite working out and watching calories. I usually lose BF very quickly but not right now!

    Any tips / insights would be great
