  • My son is 5 days old. I started this pregnancy a little underweight, so I only want to lose another 5-10 pounds.

  • I'm at my pre-preg weight. I was 5 lbs over after he was born and about a month later back to my pre-preg weight. My son is 6 months.

  • I'm about 13 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm six weeks postpartum. I only gained eight pounds the entire time though. As of yesterday I was 21 pounds under the weight I was three days before I delivered.

  • I gained 27 lbs and so far I've lost about 45 lbs and my son is almost 7 months, It's mostly come off from my legs and arms and not my belly though! I had REALLY bad blood pressure problems and it inspired me to be more healthy so i can be there for my son as long as possible,

  • I did not have to lose any. I was below at my doctors appointment by a few pounds after having my son. I am at my pre-pregnancy weight now, my ds is 17 months old!
