I lost weight when breastfeeding and am continuing to lose weight. I breastfeed exclusively, but he is not ready to take on any solids. I also have a really good milk supply and pump constantly along with having regular feedings. I don't exercise heavily and I don't necessarily watch what I eat, but I do have good dinners with veggies, carbs, and usually red meats because I have an iron deficiency. But I'm pretty sure that it is like the other women said, it depends on the individual woman and how her body reacts. Some may lose weight and some may maintain their weight, but I don't think that you're supposed to be gaining weight.
