Nursing and Weight loss

I haven't been able to loose the baby weight even though I am nursing. I've tried but the pounds just won't come off. I'll bust my butt for a week and at the end of the week I'll go to weigh in and will still be the same or have gained weight. On top of that my supply will start to fall. I am so discouraged. I thought that maybe I would have to wait until after Milo was weaned before I could start loosing weight. Every thing I read before Milo was born said that nursing will help you loose the baby weight but that just hasn't happen for me. After my struggles though I did a little more research and found that for some women nursing can actually hinderer weight loss and still more research said that it only helped if you nursed past 6 months. I guess it just depends on your body. I have finally come to the conclusion that I feel better when I diet and exercise so that is what I am going to do as long as it doesn't effect my supply. If I end up loosing weight that's great but if I don't then, oh well, at least I feel good.

This isn't true for me but it's still funny
