New mom - November 7

This is my first baby and i was never huge and was just holding my son in my belly i already lost all my weight when he was 2 weeks, now i'm 99lbs and can fit all my regular jeans size 0..i have been doing exercise not too much though, i think the reason i'm getting skinny is my son coz he doesn't let me eat or sleep..he is 8 weeks now

I gained 45 lbs when I was pregnant. I lost about 10 lbs when she was born and then another 15 like the next week. I've got about 18 lbs to go but I don't look like I have any to lose! I haven't been exercising much as I had to have a c-section so I'm limited to exercise even though I feel like I could do anything!

i actually gained about 55 pounds. Mostly i was swollen and it was water. I had my son 6 weeks ago and i have already lost about 35 pounds. I have not really been excersizing much, i had a c section and so i just go tmy ok to start. I think what was helped me is that i have somehow completely lost my appit_te. I almost have to remind myself to eat sometimes and i try to say no to all the junk food.

I had my son almost six months ago and still have about ten pounds to go. I do fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans but tops don't fit me anymore. I have a very active job so I get lots of exercise. I gained 32lbs. with my son.

no success here! I suppose I went a little crazy when i was pregnant and now i am suffering the consequences. i have about 20 lbs to be at my pre-pregnancy weight and i am not exercizing too much...my husband and i do go for walks with the stroller a few times a week but they aren't brisk enough i suppose. my son is almost 3 months, so i guess i have about 6 months to lose the 20 (i'm giving myself the 9 to lose it). i did lose 23 lbs by my six week appointment but i am in no rush and i am b___stfeeding so starving myself isn't an option.

I was 105 pre-pregnancy; I weighed 180 the day I was induced. The day I left the hospital, I weighed 165. At my 6 week check up, I weighed 150. I'm guessing I weigh around 140 right now. I haven't really done anything, as you can probably tell...just eating normally, with as few empty calories as I can manage, and I'm slowly starting to work out again. I don't want to lose too much, because 105 was unhealthy for my height. My doctor thinks that me having been underweight prior to getting pregnant may have contributed to my complications, so I'm aiming for about 125 by next summer. New Mom, at 99 lbs, I hope you're about 5'1. Size 0 isn't cute if you're underweight - it's sick-looking. Trust me, I know - been there, done that, you want some of my old clothes?

I weighed 100 lbs. when I got pregnant and gained 40 lbs. I am down to 118 and my son is 3 weeks old. I haven't done anything yet but plan on working out soon!

I gained 22lbs and lost all but 5lbs by 3 weeks pp. I lost the other 5 within the next few weeks. Now I just have some flabby belly skin that needs to get toned up, but I'm not doing anything about it. I do not enjoy forced excercise. I would rather eat instead! I weigh 140lbs, and I am 5'8"

 

HT - November 8

WELL, WHEN I GOT PREG, I THOUGHT I WAS I THE 140 RANGE- YA, THE DR SAID I WAS 166 I WAS SUPER SAD CAUSE JUST 1 YEAR PRIOR I WAS 130! ON THE DAY I DELIVERED I WAS A WOPING 209! I WENT 2 WEEKS OVER DUE AND 9 LBS WAS JUST IN THOSE 2 WEEKS. I HAD LOST IT ALL BY 4 WEEKS AND NOW IM STILL AT 166 AT 10 WEEKS. I WANT TO LOSE AT LEAST 30LBS. BUT I LOVE FOOD AND MY LITTLE ONE WONT GIVE ME MORE THAN 15 MIN TO WORK OUT. I GUESS THATS AN EXCUSE CAUSE IVE BEEN AT THE COMPUTER FOR ABOUT 20 NOW. I KEEP WEARING THE SAME 2 PAIRS OF JEANS AND MY HUBBY ASKED IF WE NEED TO GO BUY MORE JEANS. I TOLD HIM NO CAUSE THAT WOULDN'T BE HELPING THE SITUTATION. OH, IM 5'8"

I gained 30 pounds durning pregnancy. I lost 17 1/2 the week I had my baby. I now have about 7-10 pounds more to lose. I have been excerising from my baby was 3 weeks (doc approvel). I do Tae Bo and pilates 2 times a week (tape or DVD) and abs excercise(tape). I fit it in when my baby is sleeping or just resting. Best time in the morning before he gets up. Its hard at times cause I have to stop and tend to him sometimes and continue after. It is worth it though. I can see defination in my abs and tighs and prepregnany jeans fit and tops are slack around the tummy. Breast are big as I am b___stfeeding so b___st part tight. I also carry my baby for walks in the evenings. He his now 10 weeks. Thoser last pounds are the worst and longest to lose

I was 195 when I got pregnant, and gained 22 lbs for the next 9 months. Just had my 8 week pp check up and was 192. So, tech I'm 3 lbs LESS than when I got pregnant. However, I can't fit all my pre-pregnancy clothes! I actually feel WORSE than when I was pregnant. My DH gushes about how 'great I did" since my closest friend gaines almost 100lbs during her pregnancy, and she was about 50lbs overweight to start with ! *Yikes!* Anyway, I feel like a cow, and can't be happy for 3 lbs less. I try to excersize, bt with a newborn, after a c-sec, with a 6 year-old and a husband who is only home 2 days a week, it's HARD!!!!! *Sigh* Will I be fat forever?

 

Jamie - November 9

Lovely, I'm in the same boat of trying to exercise after a C-section...I can't really work my abs, cause I get sharp shooting pains when I do, which is unfortunate, since my tummy is where all the extra weight is.
