How much do you weigh now after giving birth?

I'm 7 months post-partum, currently weighing in at 147 pounds.
I weighed 183 pounds right before I went in to labor.
I was 140 pounds pre pregnancy.
Do you think that's fairly good weight loss in 7 months?
I'm actually aiming for 130 because I'm only 5'4.

  • My daughter is 2. Before pregnancy I was 120 lbs, I gained 50 lbs during pregnancy, and I actually got down to 129 when my daughter was 6 months. I had to deal with a few stressful situations, but I am at 140 right now. I work out with my hsuband alot(he has a great body-former Marine-so I have him train me). I am also 5'6. I think your progress is great.
