I gained 28 and lost exactly that as of 4 weeks post. I could sure stand to lose a few more but I'm more concerned with tightening up a bit.

ugh, this topic is so depressing for me.
I gained 35 lbs
Lost 20 within the first week
5 weeks pp, have only lost maybe 1-2 lbs more. I was ravenous those first weeks, plus I was stuck eating at other people's houses so my diet was horrible. I was going to start exercising at 1 week pp as I felt great, but the stress of everything else led to my lochia stopping and starting several times. Now it finally seems to have ceased for good and we have a rental house. Dh has started a get program as well so I hope that we can work out together. I would love to do some spinning classes, but I will have to wait until dh can watch Lily, right now it is still too crazy doing demo and clean-up at the burned house.
My tummy is mostly flat, although bigger around and flabbier. It is mostly my thighs where I am carrying the weight, that is the first place I gained it though.
actually i wouldn't mind the marks so much if my stomach flab wasn't so disgusting
