|crunchymomof2||I haven't made more than a couple pounds progress. But it seems to take me about 4-6 months to really get going with weight loss after birth. I had started exercising and then hurt myself so that got nixed for a while. I was trying to start running. I think I need to give it a bit longer. But plan on starting Pilates soon. Thats a little gentler.|

Wow- doing better than I thought...I think I must have blocked out (or just never asked) what my finaly wieght was before DS was born. So as it turned out I had lost exactly 50lbs at my 6wk appt. I gained 64 while prego so I have 14 to lose to get to pre-preg weight...still if I lose 21 than I will be where I really want to be.
What is everyone doing to firm up your belly? I've decided the stretch marks aren't so bad and are faiding anyway - now I think a firm belly would be great!
Is anyone else still wearing maternity clothes? I am SO SICK OF THEM!!!! But totally not fitting into pre-preg clothes - I think I will never fit some of the shirts again - pretty cool how BF makes one's boobs grow!!! I have cleavage!!!
Anyway- definately need to brave a shopping trip...I keep putting it off though hoping to be smaller sizes...but had a sort of break down geting dressed this morning because I'm so tired of maternity clothes - and especially the same 3 shirts, 2 shorts and 2 slacks (because everything else is either too big, too hard to BF in or too obviously maternity).
Blah Blah...I think it's time for bed

|Jenns_3_babies||I was thinking of getting on the scale recently, but I'm afraid to. I hate the fact that I have 50lbs to lose to be where I want to, well, not to be considered overweight anymore. DH and I made an agreement...starting at 6 weeks postpartum, I'm going to start dieting and exercising. If I lose 70lbs (my idea), then I get a breast lift (my idea). My girlies are on their way south, actually too far south than what I like. I want to feel womanly again....I'm not even 30 and I have grandma boobs from having kids and breastfeeding|

well, if I wasnt depressed about my weight before i am now!
I weighed 155 pre-pregnancy
207 @ delivery
185 when I left the hospital
197 at 6 week postpartum
and 188 lbs now..my daughter was born 3/23@37 weeks and weighed 7 lbs even.
Im extra depressed because baby number one I went home from the hospital in a size 6
baby number 2 a size 10, but back down to a size 6 by 6 weeks postpartum
this baby..no matter what I do Im barely losing...and Im exhausted
my thyroid does test normal too...Im ready for a very radical approach just so my feet stop hurting from the extra weight..
man I sound whiney..Makayla is an excellent baby though!

|Velvet005||I quit weighing. It became too frustrating. One day I was 5 pounds down from a previous weigh and then a few days later the 5lbs was back. I am not eating like a monster or anything and I was trying to walk at least 3x a week but . . . it got difficult for the little ones. Ashton got hot and Elijah got bored so maybe I'll try again soon. I refuse to weigh though.|

|doudat||Just came back from my OB where I was weighed, and I lost 32lbs so far, just 25 more lbs to go!!! I had decided before going that if I was in the 140's, I'd be happy. Well I was 149, so yeah me!!!|
|05-24-2007 01:42 PM|
during pg-i lost 12, then gained 30
I am at my pre-pg weight-5 wks pp, but my clothes don't fit the same-bah!

I gained 20 lbs, and was down only 10 when I came home (how is that possible with an 11 lb baby?? Darn IV fluids...)
But I weighed myself yesterday, and I'm down another 15, so 5 lbs below pre-preg, and I still have some fluid retaining in my legs and swelling around my incision.
I was very fluffy to begin with, although it was great because even after 42 weeks I never got to the point of my PRE-preg weight of my first child! DH says pregnancy is just a long, painful diet program for me.
My long term goal is to lose 60 lbs from here. With being a human pacifier to a big baby, I'm sure bf'ing will take a lot of it off for me. I'm also trying to take a walk every day with my toddler and new babe.

|Queen of my Castle||
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!
|05-23-2007 05:54 PM|
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?

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.

|queen_anne78||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!|
|05-22-2007 03:04 AM|
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.

[QUOTE=13Sandals;8180177] so good to see my ankles again!)QUOTE]
: 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!
|05-21-2007 01:45 PM|
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!)
still have a good 15-17 to go...

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
|05-20-2007 10:06 PM|
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!
|05-20-2007 08:44 PM|
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.
|05-20-2007 08:07 PM|
Gained 35 pounds
Lost 21 immediately
14 to go for pre-preg, BUT
Am having to eat A TON to nurse my hungry little man, so not sure how fast this will go!!!

|RAF||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.|
|05-20-2007 12:54 AM|
|Mama K||I gained right at 30 pounds. So far I've lost 20-ish pounds and I would love to lose 60 more. :|
