  • With my first, I gained 40lbs, lost 25 immediately, then lost another 10 slowly. With my second, I lost 25 right away also, but I'm working on the rest!

  • When I was pg with my last child I had reached just under 200 pounds. (I'm 5'6" and pre-preg weight was 150 because I still hadn't lost all the baby weight from my child before that). UGH. I lost 40 pounds within the first six months or so but it took me another two years to get down to 132, a weight I'm happy with.

  • I had my last baby in June 2008 and weighed 178 pounds at that time. In October 2009 I hit 112 pounds and have been there ever since so I guess that's 66 pounds. :)

  • With my twins I lost over 30 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. Breastfeeding 2 really makes a difference. Too ba I gained some of it back. I am working on taking it off again.
