Does the "no more than 1-2lb loss a week" rule apply to weight gained during pregnancy, or just pre-pregnancy weight? Just curious. It takes me a few weeks to let go of the water weight I gain in the hospital (which seems to replace the weight of baby/uterus/etc). Then after that, losing the rest of the fat I gain is a slow process. I tried to lose no more than 1.5 lbs a week last time, but something I read after weaning made me think that the weight loss limit/recommendation applied more to old fat/pre-pregnancy weight. Can I drop the pregnancy lbs faster, or is that bad for the baby? Obviously I would wait until supply was establish and not be aggressive enough to hinder it.
