How much of your baby weight did you lose?

I started at 195, ballooned to 240, now at 210- my baby is 8 months. Is this ok, or am I lazy?

  • I went from about 150-160 to 220 after I had my son....he's 17 months old and I'm still just as fat! LOL

    I think you did pretty well, you're almost at your pre-baby weight.

  • I'm 5'2" and started at 155 (overweight anyway) and grew to a lovely 250 lbs. My daughter is now 16 months old and I weigh 175. I think it takes time...and energy which we don't have right now. Our bodies are still trying to recooperate, they say it takes 2 to 3 years to get back down to a good weight safely. Safely being the key word. I don't think you are lazy at all. It will come off with time. Good luck!

  • My daughter is two and a half. I weighed 127 when I got pregnant, was at 181 the day after I delivered, and right now I am at 138. I just can't seem to lose those extra 11 pounds! I diet and excersize and they just won't leave!

  • You know whats weird with my son I was 85 lbs when i got pregnant, i went down to 79 lbs by my 5th month from morning sickness, and still went up to 160 by the time I had him. I almost immediately lost all the weight (not the hips though), but I got pregnant with my daughter 6 weeks later.  At 12 wks along I was 95 lbs and I went up to 131 lbs. At my six week checkup I was 121 lbs and 2yrs later I still am. I know thats not alot but it's puzzling because I haven't done anything differently.

  • I lost it all after about 6 months. Really, I just didn't want to try to find pants that fit and wanted to fit into the ones I already had.
