i feel you mama. i was about 10 pounds over my ideal weight when i got pregnant (143), and ended up gaining about 50-55 pounds. lost a good amount in the first month (i was practically made of water i was so swollen) and plateaued around 33 pounds heavier than my goal weight at 168 for awhile. my babe just turned 5 months old and i started realizing that if i wanted to see the weight come off a little more efficiently, i would need to move my butt more and eat less high calorie/low nutrient foods. I started couch to 5k last week and am doing more pilates. granted i have one child, so i imagine that finding time and space to exercise could be *a bit* harder for you. :) honestly i don't think that is what is helping though, in terms of actual weight loss. when i stopped eating constantly, lessened portion size and cut out most carbs i really started to see a difference. I still eat a lot of calories, they're just mostly made of stuff that's better for me so i feel more full. seems simple, but it can be hard to commit to. i feel great now though, just hit the 150s for the first time - so about 23 pounds away from goal and am feeling more like myself.
what's your experience with weight loss with your other children? did you see a rapid loss at a certain month? stagnant elsewhere?
hope my story helps, and good luck!
