Desperate Housewives

I am unashamedly a Desperate Housewives fan. I watch the show without fail every Sunday night. I know, I know, I can just hear the preacher telling me what an inappropriate show it is! Nevertheless, I watch it and on tonight's show, Lynette hires a woman to work in her firm who is breast feeding her child...not a big deal but the child was like 5 yrs old...EWWWW! In the end the child chooses chocolate milk over mother's milk...what five-year-old wouldn't make that choice! The mom became an emotional wreck...and the reason for this wasn't that her baby was growing up...it was because she was going to have to join a gym and work out in order to burn all those extra calories the breastfeeding had been covering. Now, maybe I am wrong, but I breastfed my youngest and I don't remember any weightloss benefits, just extra hunger pains! Maybe there is some secret I need to know about...I could always have another kid to test the theory! I am always willing to try the newest weightloss craze...do you think this one will catch on?

I just gained weight breast feeding, but all the books say most people loose.

Maybe we were doing something wrong! :) I'll try again if someone will tell us the secret!

I'm Not trying it again. Done it three times and I'm done. By all means you go for it!

i am so hungry all the time while breastfeeding. i do not lose much weight at all; it's actually easier for me after they are weaned.

But I do know people who lost tons of weight, usually while working and b'feeding at the same time...
