Default Trouble losing weight after having son

I NEED HELP! After I had my son I dropped 30 lbs of my baby weigh right away, but since then my weight loss has slowed and finally come to a stop. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas. I am finally to the point that I feel like I have tried it all at least twice and I'm getting extremely frustrated. I am currently eating 1600 calories. I powerlift at least twice a week normally and walk my dogs every chance I get. I can't walk on a treadmill because it bores the hell out of me. I also already take a multivitamin and fish oil and all the other things they tell you to take. I drink water most of the day. I'm not sure what else to do. Thank you for taking time to read this and I am open to any suggestions that anyone is willing to give me.

Sounds like your TDEE is pretty high, too high for that amount of calories.

10-20 mins of KB swinging, 3 days a week...it may help and you may enjoy it more than treadmill work.

Along these lines, KB/DB/BB complexes are good too. Fun, in their own way.

I agree: treadmills are about as exciting as non-stop advertising.

Eat more. Active bodies need more calories. I would check out icecreamfitness' nutrition videos. Layne Norton as well but he would probably say you have metabolic damage. But take what I say with a grain of salt as I have no experience cutting to a low level of body fat.
