SW (starting weight): 228.8 (today. i've already lost some weight in the last month.)

CW (current weight): 228.8

GW (goal weight): 160

Anything else you wanna add:
I just had a baby 8/26. He'll be 6 weeks old this Wednesday. I have my 6 week follow up appointment with my midwife on Tuesday and I'm going to ask for the official go-ahead to start actively trying to lose weight. I'm positive I'll get it, and after seeing the commercial for a free month of WW online, I went ahead and signed up today. I'll just wait to start until I get the official okay.

I've done WW before, but didn't have nearly as much weight to lose. I also hadn't just had a baby. I'm having the hardest time wrapping my head around how I'm going to eat all these points. I have 39 daily points, including the extra 10 I get for breastfeeding. Being familiar with points (last time I did WW I got 24 points), 39 daily points seems like more food than I'm already eating! Any other BFing moms out there who can reassure me that I'll be able to lose weight while eating that much food?
