How hard was it to lose the baby weight (second pregnancy).

With my first I gained 65 lbs but I didnt get serious about losing the weight until 3 years later - when I finally joined weight watchers I lost everything.

Then I got preggo again and gained 65 lbs - again! I am planning on going back to weight watches - because i can breastfeed while trying to lose the weight.

How hard was it for you to lose the baby weight the second time?

  • I didn't really try to lose it after the first and it gradually disappeared over a year. With the second, I went to the gym 3 times a week and lost it all within 6 months. It's still gone almost 4 years later.

  • It all just depends on who you are and how hard you are willing to try. It has been almost three years for me because I didn't have any incentive to do it until now.

  • I gained 13 more lbs, so it was harder. Should I say IS?
    However, when I quit consuming animal products, I lost 12lbs in about 2 months without excercising. Now I need to get off my butt to lose about 7 more!

  • When I got serious about losing weight (before getting preggo with #2) I went vegetarian and I lost a lot of weight too! and felt awesome!
