    Hey, breastfeeding only burns 500 calories a day. I'm a nursing mom, my daughter is 8 months old, and you actually have to eat more to make extra nutrients for the baby, so basically your are only burning off what you ate extra. I have a 2 year old as well and I had that "jelly roll" even after I had her. I think that a lot of the time it makes a difference if you have a c-section or have your baby naturally....I had a c-section with both. I know that a lot of moms that have had c-sections have a hard time losing weight because of the stomach muscle area having been cut. Whats going to make the difference for you is how much weight you gain during your pregnancy. I gained 60 with my first, I worked at McDonalds and ate all the time, and lost 36 the first week and my baby was only about 8 pounds. I lost an additional 10 pounds then got pregnant again, then I only gained 20 pounds, but I didnt work at McDonalds then either. So basically it depends on what you eat during your pregnancy and how you eat and excerise after. Good luck!!! But still do breastfeed...remember breastfed is bestfed.

    I found the book to be very informative and easy to read.

    I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off.

    It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise.

    Styree is right. Breast feeding will shrink your uterius and stomach very quickly. You can even feel your stomach being pulled as you are feeding. Keep lotion on your tummy all the time. This will help reduce stretch marks and help your skin keep it's elasticity so it goes down after birth.

    i have always had a round belly, and of course it got bigger after my daughter was born. but, with a little dieting, and a lot of running, cardio and situps, i was able to get it flat enough to feel comfortable wearing a string bikini. i do know after several babies, it gets harder. good luck! you just have to work hard if you want it! also breastfeeding did not work for me!!!! it took a lot of hard work to lose the extra fat! and i breastfed exclusively for 6 months, then stopped when she was 14 months!
