how mush weight have you lost/have to lose? - Page 2

post #21 of 51
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.

I gained right at 30 pounds. So far I've lost 20-ish pounds and I would love to lose 60 more. :

I gained about 55 pounds during this pregnancy. I just weighed myself today at 3 weeks pp, and I have lost 22 lbs. I am hoping to keep the rest of the weight on, so am trying to eat as much healthy food as possible.

Gained 30. Lost 27.

I'm down to 128 at 7 weeks. I don't need to lose any more but I'd like for my tummy not to be flabby.

I gained 25 pounds.
Lost 8 at 4.5w pp - baby weighed 7.10 at birth!
Need to lose 45 to get back to my normal size - which included the baby weight from my previous babe since I never lost that 30 pounds. :

I am definately going to work at it. I did real well with my diet the first couple weeks, but I am absolutely ravenous and on top of eating nice, healthy foods, I grab easy, convenient crap to help me feel satisfied because I just don't have time to . And I need to exercise - I don't know what though, but walking just isn't going to cut it!

I got a double stroller to start walking. I am going to start today. Gradually I will get back into running but my breasts seem to be in the way right now plus, I'm only almost 2 weeks pp so I am not sure running would be good for me at this point. I am going to attempt to go to the grocery store with both the little ones today. I plan to get some healthier foods.


I have 25lbs to lose
post #28 of 51
gained at least 55 pounds..(stopped weighing when i went past my edd)

had lost 15lbs 3 days postpartum
at 2 1/2 weeks pp, am down 35 pounds (I had soooo much water weight in my lower body at the end of pregnancy - so good to see my ankles again!)

: I don't think I've ever apreciated the shape of my ankles or calves until I didn't have them! So nice to be able to wear shoes again too!

gained about 40
lost: no idea! i don't have a scale, thank goodness. i'll probably weigh myself at my six week midwife appointment tomorrow, though. i'm pretty happy with how quickly my belly has gone down, but i have another question: do you still have your linea negra? if not, when did it go away?

the biggest body task i have ahead of me is to work on my diastasis--the split between my abdominal muscles, which is now three fingers wide at the largest point and quite long, too.

I gained 50 pounds and just weighed myself a day ago, I'll be 3 weeks postpartum on Thursday. I've lost 30 pounds, 20 more to go to be at my pre-pregnancy weight, but I probably shouldn't lose that...I need to be eating more......it's so hard to get to the kitchen...most days I realize it's one in the afternoon and I haven't eaten....not so good. I don't care so much about my weight..mostly I just want my abs back!

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.

sounds like you're doing great, a lot better than me. At least you don't have another 30lbs to lose, or another 20 on top of that!! My tummy is far from flat, and it looks likea road map with all the stretch marks...

That's me although I have no stretchmarks. But I'd trade that in for a flat stomach, I still look 4 mths pregnant, what is up with that??? :

I'm very self conscious with the warm weather out... I feel bad wearing my tank tops I hope my tummy flattens out with time. I think my muscles are still separated though, I'll have to ask my OB next week about that. Does anyone know how to get them back together?
post #40 of 51
I gained at least 35 lbs, probably more, putting me at approx 165lbs, at 5 weeks I was down to 140lbs, 10 lbs over pre-pregnancy weight. I know it will gradually come off, in the meantime I enjoy my curves!
