I do think that breastfeeding has saved me from the worst of what could have been post-partum as I'm still only about 7 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and can wear my size 4 pants still, but I know I have to step up the cardio and strength training for sure so I can tone and tighten. The metabolism of the thirties is not the same as the twenties!
