  • If you lost that much weight after having your daughter, make sure that you are eating plenty of protein after working out, to help build muscle. Also, might want to mention the weight loss to your doctor because sometimes your hormones cause cause your thyroid to go into overdrive and make you lose a ton of weight after giving birth. If it stays in overdrive it can damage your thyroid and at some point will slow it down too much and you'll gain too much weight.

  • im not losing weight anymore, once I got to 99lbs (which was about 4 months ago) I stayed there, I think its just my natural weight, plus im breastfeeding so I attribute it to that...but like I said after I got to that point, and ive been doing everything exactly the same, I havent lost anything else

  • I hate you.
    I'm 5 foot 3. 36 (and a half) years old, I have 3 kids, one of which is 25 months, and I'm 148 lbs. I was 110 when I met my husband 10 1/2 years ago. Ok, so I would probably weigh less if I weren't pregnant, but how much weight do you gain by 11 weeks?
    Ok, I don't really HATE you. *smiles*
    I'm sorry I didn't actually contribute to your question.
