Now it didn't happen overnight but by 2 weeks postpartum I was in maternity jeans and a few weeks after that back in normal jeans.

My experience was almost the same. With DD, I started at 135lb (I'm 5'6") and weighed 175lb when I delivered. The majority of the weight stuck with me for the first couple of months but eventually it started melting off.

At the one year point, I weight 112lb so almost 25lb less than I was pre-preg. I ate anything I wanted to when I was nursing too.

From BFing alone (no exercise), I lost all of my pregnancy weight by 8 days PP and was 20 lbs under prepregnancy weight by about 8 weeks postpartum. So yeah. In my case, BFing definitely helped get the weight off.

Moringa is effective and safest weight loss supplement; it's not only effective in reducing weight but also in providing glowing look. It is the best pill to get rid of the excess fats. The demand of weight loss supplements are increasing day by day.
