Nursing away the weight
When I was nursing Baby, all the pregnancy weight, and then some, just fell right off. I was eating all the time but my family and Hubby's kept telling me I needed to eat more and that I was too skinny. It's not like I was taking diet pills or something, but my naturally high metabolism combined with breastfeeding just caused the weight to come off. I actually got down to 110lbs at one point, which I do recognize as being underweight for my height, but I really was not trying to lose weight. And then of course after I stopped nursing my body went to a more normal weight by itself. What's funny is that with each of my boys I've ended up weighing less after I had them than before, at this rate by the time I'm done having kids I'll be a toothpick!
