Breast feeding twins every 2-3 hours around the clock for the first 6 months helped me. I not only dropped all the pregnancy weight, but also slimmed down to the lowest weight I had ever been in my adult life.
I suppose I took that for granted, because I had grand ideas that breastfeeding dd would at least help me drop the pregnancy weight again but I was oh-so-wrong. I was as hungry as ever (although I know for me, the mini-pill I am on contributes to my insatiable hunger) but the breastfeeding made no difference and not only have I still not really dropped that weight, I've since put more on now that I finished breastfeeding a month ago.
Dd will be 2 in 3 months and its at the forefront of my mind- the fact that I am carrying so much extra weight around my tummy- and I know and want to eat healthier but am having a lot of trouble finding recipes for the whole family that we will all happily eat together. My main problem is carbs. To say I am addicted is an understatement. I wish someone could just walk through my front door and start telling me what to do and to get you off my butt and exercise because that's my other problem. I live off 3-4 hours of sleep a night (dd has sleep aversions) and so some days just feel like all I can do is clean the house before I am exhausted.
