  • I was down to my weight at 2 wks but back in my size three at 3 wks. I didn't breastfeed, couldn't exercise (I had an emergency C)... the weight just fell off and now I'm too flippin skinny and can't gain. I would like to at least be 115-125 instead of my 107! I wish I could take whatever you don't want off!!!
    I've heard walking everyday helps, eating healthy... otherwise Idk! GL!!!

  • I'm in the same boat. I've got a 4 1/2 month old and can't seem to shed those last 20 extra pounds. Plus, I breastfed and it didn't do much. All the articles say to exercise and eat a healthy diet. It took me almost a year to get to my prepregnancy size with my oldest. I got a job as a waitress and was up on a feet for 4-8 hours a day, plus walking to classes around the college campus. I really think it was lots of walking that did it. Best of luck!!

  • I am still working on it, but this is what I do, and it is working. I feel really good!
