I dance and do the bbl which i did for the first time i didnt finish it due to my baby crying till her eyes were red and i am so out of shape weighing at 220 pounds and so disappointed in my self i used to never be more than 150 pounds. I am so lazy i am blaming bbl to be really hard trying to maneuver all this weight im carrying. also some women say i can loose my milk from working out is that true? iam 22 yearsold with my first child and my father has diabetes a so the doctor said i am in a very high risk to get it.

Oh Miha

I feel for you. Having a new baby and dealing with changes in hormones and how our bodies look and feel after giving birth is all very difficult. I understand that during your pregnancy you gained more weight than you would have liked and all of this is piling up on you. WE are here for you.

Let start out with the first issue, yes you can work out while breastfeeding - here's a good web site I found on exercise and breastfeeding you can read over link
It states that exercise is actually good for you and it will not have an effect on milk production unless working to exhaustion - and then it short be short term.

Now for time: that one is more difficult of course. You're tired from still recovering from delivery and body changes, your sleep is not regular, and your activities during the day are busy with baby care, housework, laundry (omg the laundry!) and it sounds like hubby needs to step it up and help our more! Let's start with trying to get in some exercise while the baby sleeps, even if you have to stop and come back to it during the next nap. As he/she starts to sleep longer and get into a more regular sleep pattern it will get better, but BBL has fairly short workouts and as long as you are moving that's what counts. Also, while baby is awake if weather permits take that new stroller out and do a few swings around the block if possible. (not sure where you live and if that's possible)

Please buddy request me, I would love to hear how you are doing and help be some support for you. Please break down your goals. You need small goals right now. Your big goal is to lose the weight of course, but right now you need some wins... so your first goal might be to get in 3-4 workouts this week even if you have to break it down in 10-15 minutes segments due to baby.

Again, I'm looking forward to helping any way I can. and congratulations on that beautiful blessing of yours.
