  • I was overweight (obese) when I had my son anyway, so I never really had a pre-pregnancy weight. I lost all of it (and a bunch ore) in the past year.

  • Never... LOL

    I lost the weight I gained during pregnancy and what I gained afterwards.

    However. My body never went back to or ever became again what it once was.. LOL My boobs became larger (no matter how much weight I've lost over the years, those have stayed the same).. My hips expanded (due to shifting for child birth) and have stayed as is, so no matter how much weight I've lost my hips have been wider.

    There are somethings, that never go back to the way they were for some women. I've found that trying to go back to where I was before having a child was a pointless waste of time. For me it was better to work with my "new" body, learn to accept it and love it just like I did my old one.
