  • I was back to my size a month after my girls were born...we do A LOT of walking. Take walks, park a little further from the store, don't avoid using the stairs oh and eat healthy! Can't walk and walk while munching a big mac!! Well you could..but it probably wouldn't work!

  • I think I'm an oddity... or at least this is what I've been told. I was back at my pre-preggo weight within days with my DD (after all the swelling went down) and back in normal clothes in a few weeks. With this baby the dr is guessing I'll leave the hospital at my pre-preggo weight or possibly lower... I'm average... I just don't gain a lot with my pregnancies. Of course, I pay close attention to what I eat and try to stay active when possible while pregnant...

    It depends on the person I think. Nursing does help, it's a work out for your body. And while nursing it is important that you eat healthy, so that helps too! :)

  • I breastfed, resumed exercising when my baby was two weeks old, ate healthy.

    I gained 24 pounds when I was pregnant and was back in my prepregnancy clothes in about 5 weeks.

  • I lost all my baby weight by brestfeeding. I lost the weight in a month. My stomach was still a little lose so i did sit ups. My dr. said situps are good for making your stomach tighter. Plus eating healthy foods helps.

    Some people say its hard to lose the baby weight but, for me it was easy. Good luck.
