    Sometimes it's just as hard being skinny as it is being overweight - more comments and too embarrassed to get photographed because people say mean things
    The difference between you and me is you're an ectomorph and I'm somewhere between a endomorph/mesomorph. Oyr bodies work so differently. For an ectomorph to build muscle it's pretty much as hard as an endomorph to keep weihht off. Most ectos can easily loose weight if they are not careful like a endo can gain.

    For guys in body building a guy being ecto is the equivelant of most girls wanting to have a smaller frame. My last coach is an ecto and naturally a 60kg guy but over years has built up to 90kg. He told me he wanted to be big so desperstely he drank olive oil to bulk up which is just as unhealthy as someone starving themself to be smaller imo.

    You are entirely right about a woman's weight does not effect the quality and quantity of her milk. All the good stuff goes to the milk for the baby. However, the "underweight mum" will be getting what ever is left over, you body will use any (fat) reserves if it's not enough, and consequently you may end up feeling pretty ordinary as your body is not getting enough nutrition to function properly. You may loose your appetite because your iron leves are low and keep dropping weight. Output is higher than imput so more weight loss.
    Personally, i would be getting some multivitamin suppliments (there are breastfeeding ones) if you havent already. You need to remember to nourish yourself too, not for milk pruposes but for YOU!

    Im sorry if this is unwanted advice or if i have offended anyone, it was not my intention. and im sure you are aware of all of this but i just want to make sure as a breastfeeding mum who is "underweight" and still loosing weight, that you are looking after yourself too.

    I take a breast feeding multivitamin daily (well when i remember) for that very reason. It becomes a vicious cycle where I'm tired so not hungry, then I'm not eating so I'm tired. Why would I be offended lol? Thanks for your concern

    Edit: even when I do eat heaps anyways I'm still skinny just 'lucky' I guess sigh..... I'd rather have some boobs though

    Just adding weighed myself tonight 53.5 kg so makes my BMI 21.7
    Heaviest I've ever been is 76 kg full term preg with DS not preg 60kg(BMI 24.3)
    Before falling preg with him I was 42 kg (which made my BMI 17 )
    Still not overly happy with my weight ATM feel a lot of pressure to be skinny like I was before kids & suffer a lot of self image & esteem probs

    Just read all the replies. Yay. Feels so great to be in the minority. Sigh

    I wish I was 60kg again.
