  • 24 pounds. It was gone in less than eight weeks.

    Just don't ask me how much I've gained in the last 15 years!

  • I gained 65 lbs by 8 months and refused to look again. 3 years later, I'm still packing about 8 of those around with me.

  • 50+ lbs. I pretty much lost all of it as soon as he was born. LOL I think I may have kept 15 pounds.. I tried SO hard to keep that 15lbs... but... it's gone.

  • With my first, 30 lbs. I lost about 33 by my 6-week post-partum check-up.

    With my second, 17 lbs, and I lost 28 within 4 weeks.

    They were very different pregnancies. My first I was hungry all the time and ate everything in sight, and I had a major sweet tooth; I was able to keep it at only 30 lbs because I was genuinely hungry whenever I ate. My second I had no appetite the whole 9 months and couldn't stomach anything sweet; the only reason I forced myself to eat what I did was so because it was affecting my toddler's eating habits.
