I'm curious how quickly the weight will come off!

With my daughter I was 18 lbs down from my OB appt the day before delivery to getting home from the hospital. That's 18 lbs of blood, baby, placenta, and swelling. Not too bad.

Then I lost another 10 lbs in the next two weeks.

If I do that again... i'll be almost 15 lbs down from my prepregnancy weight!

Woo hoo!

At least that's something to look forward to, right?


FYI: I was 100 overweight when I got pregnant and have not done anything to restrict my weight gain--just eaten mostly healthy food when I was hungry and have eaten smaller snacks/meals than stuffing myself to painful like I did with my last pregnancy (during which I gained 50 lbs!)

I felt better with second pregnancy cause I gained less but after the initial water weight,baby weight it took forever to get rid of the rest of it.

I am looking forward to being less "heavy" and imagine I will be able to get some of my old clothes on.

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking about this. I'm currently at +25lbs. I am wondering how long it will take me to lose it and I was looking at a picture of me from a year ago and I want that back. At least I know I can do it since this is my 3rd and I've done it two times before.
