    You're tall, so maintenance is already much higher for you than average. Couple that with the strain of breastfeeding and...

    It's true that the volume of a pound of muscle is much smaller than a pound of fat. So gaining a few lbs of muscle is not going to be super visible unless you're pretty lean.
    If you're pretty lean...

    You can definitely get away with less protein than you are eating now, if protein is truly an issue. I think although we make the recommendation of '1g per lb of bw', you are fine at 1g per lb of...

    I think you need to stop worrying about what other people are doing/eating and focus on yourself.
    At any rate, you really don't have any idea what those other people are eating when they aren't...

    That's a load of BS. The body stops losing when you aren't eating in a deficit anymore and the body stops making muscle gains when we aren't eating enough or using a progressive load.

    Sure, pears can compete. It just takes several cycles of cutting and bulking to balance the top and the bottom.

    FWIW, your focus now will be fat loss while minimizing muscle loss. In a deficit...

    Losing the weight will come down to eating a proper deficit consistently. Do you currently count your calories? Do you track your macros?
    Even if you didn't exercise at all, you could lose...

    ~200. But really you have to play with it to find what works for you. Aim to gain around 2 lbs per month and adjust accordingly.

    Are you serious?
    At your height you should be closer to 140.

    Your protein is way too low, your protein is way too low and your calories are way too low.

    Well, eating clean is all fine and good, but eating clean does not equal eating in a deficit. And you probably know that a calorie deficit is required to lose fat.

    You need to start counting and...

    There are a lot of body weight exercises that are difficult enough for a beginner, but at some point you HAVE to add resistance to continue to progress.

    For now, look up body weight exercises. ...

    At your stats and judging by your pics, you should probably try to get the calories in.
    It doesn't matter WHEN you eat as long as you hit your target calories and macros each 24 hr period.

    It only burns for the first few workouts. It shouldn't really be painful after you're broken in. I wouldn't recommend a macro split - you need around 1g of protein per lb of body weight, .5g of fat...

    You're just under-muscled and skinny-fat. That'll be easily (though slowly) remedied with a long bulk.
    I'm not sure I'd go from 100 to 300 though. At 100 over you'd gain around a pound per month,...

    No, not long enough at all. Women can only gain around 1/2 lb of muscle PER MONTH.
