    I’m with Matt. It’s upsetting.

    Hi Scarlettsmum! I love mango sorbet, so I thought it would make a good name! So, resting is what we should do to improve temp?

    Rob–yes, I hope the worst of the weight gain is behind me. I always get a really low temp around 7:00-8:00pm (around 96.8). Why do you think this might happen?

    That’s awesome, Matt! I wish I had found you months ago. But, now I feel stuck. I want to get pregnant again sometime in the next year or so, but I want to lose my first “baby weight” before I do so! Is there hope?

    I’ll look forward to hearing more from you, scarlettsmum. Maybe we can do it together?

    But…..I don’t want to do that! I never want to starve to be thin again! Can anyone give examples of women who gained and then actually lost using eat for heat principles while breastfeeding?

    Thanks, scarlettsmum. Maybe it is a choice between an “ideal” weight and true health, but you raise an important point about mental health. It is very difficult to gain weight as a woman in this culture. I am also on another site called youreatopia. I suggest checking it out. But, nevertheless I am tempted to just say “#### this” and go on a low calorie diet, like your back up plan.

    I am frustrated too, bagelpower. I have an 18 month old and was just starting to fit into my old clothes in May. Then I stumbled onto this site and read Eat for Heat. My morning temps are between 96.8-97.3 so I began eating a lot more in an effort to raise my metabolism. My son still breastfeeds 6-10 times a day. I do feel I have more energy, but have gained 20 or 25lbs. I am getting depressed about my weight. I need advice.
