The sicko lactation diet

Okay, here's the real reason I breastfeed: I can eat lots of food and still lose weight. But that's not all. I can use the breast pump in lieu of exercise. For example, this morning while Baby in Chief was asleep I pumped five ounces. Five ounces equals 100 calories. I don't think there is any other way on the planet I could burn 100 calories in about five minutes. Perfect. Now where's my chocolate croissant?


  1. i want to do this diet
    but i do not think that would work out so well

    good for you
    eat the chocolate croissant!

  2. you could run a 5 minute mile. that will burn off 100 calories as well. but, yeah, using the pump and watching your favorite tv program at the same time without getting all out of breath and breaking a sweat sounds fricken' sweet!

    I think my dh actually was a little jealous of my pumping time - for this reason! When I would complain that someday I wanted to stop pumping, he'd say "why? You don't have to go the gym!" HA HA!!!

  4. True, so true. I haven't laughed so hard all day.

    I am looking at Weaning in the next few months and it breaks my heart. I think I shall have to splurge on a Krispy Kreme now.
