Nursing n wt: It takes more energy to nurse than to grow that baby which is why you're so hungry. This is the time to begin exercising and eat the healthiest that you can so the weight falls off and you feed your baby well. You may hang on the the last 10lbs or so until your done nursing, it's your body's way of protecting the baby's food source, don't worry!
