This post-pregnancy body of mine has got to go. My daughter is 6 months old and I'm 100% full steam ahead -- eating healthy and adding fitness back into my life. I've been fit for pretty much my entire life and lugging around extra weight is no good for me, my joints or my wardrobe (I live in South Florida and the more clothes you wear, the more miserable you are).

To be honest, this response really upsets me. First of all, this is the most passive aggressive way possible to shame a nursing mother. The airline acts as if they were protecting the innocent 12-year-old who would be exposed to such inde…
