    So you're saying you lost almost 100lbs just from giving birth? Uhhhh

  • Keeping in mind I'm chunky. *cough* I didn't gain any weight while I was pregnant, in fact, I lost 12 pounds in the first trimester and my doc was fine with that. I wasn't dieting and wasn't having any problems, I just took the approach that if there was something wrong with the baby, then I would blame myself, so I was taking no chances. My body was a temple.

    I ate very little sodium, very little sugar, almost no processed foods. And did light exercise every day. I had my moments, though...I recall snarfing a package of zingers one evening and my cravings were usually for salsa and tostito chips. I made the salsa, but sometimes you have to eat a few tostitos. :)

    Two months after delivery I was 40 lbs. lighter than I was at conception (and almost at my ideal weight).

    Wish I still had the will power to eat that way when I wasn't responsible for a small person inside me!

  • I was 115lbs when I got preggo and my end of preg weight was 165lbs.
    They usually say to gain between 50-60lbs, this also depends on how healthy you are at the beginning of your
    If you are over-weight before you become pregnant the doctors worry that weight gain during pregnancy can contribute to diatbetes during pregnancy.
