  • it's been 5 months and I've still got a good bit to lose. I've lost 50 so far, but I've got 15 more to get to my pre-preg weight. And then another 30 until I'm the weight I want.

  • I didn't really gain any weight until the last month or so and it was fluid. So when I went to the doc a week after having my DS my weight was right at what I was when I found out I was pregnant. But I have gained weight since and and trying to loose.

  • i'm not even close. my son is 1. I was 140 pre-preggo, 206 at 9 months preggo, at my 1st PP checkup I was down to 180. a year later and I weigh between 175 and 177. i havent exactly been on a dedicated weight loss program. I dont exercise everyday. but I do watch my diet, I am very physically active with my son and I do the occasional yoga. I'd like to get down to my 140 lbs, but I'm not gonna rush it. being 175 is great for now. my tummy has gotten tighter than it was a few months ago, and I have more of an hourglass figure now.
