How long did it take you to lose your baby weight?

My DD is 5 months and 1 week.. and I am still a blob.. I find myself with little to no motivation.. how do I get out of this slump and get my lazy ass moving.. (well not lazy .. but you catch my drift) I work full time from home.. and yes I have a gym membership and cannot get myself motivated to actually get in my car ..start it.. and drive there.. smh.. I am a mess.

  • This is exactly my problem! We should motivate each other!!! I keep putting it off every week to start my plan and I just never do! WTF! And then I get mad at myself for still looking the same. I guess I keep thinking it's magically going to melt away in my sleep!

  • I lost all but 7 or 8 lbs within the first month. The last 7 or 8 lbs hung around until after I was done breastfeeding which for both of my kids was around 8 months. IDK, natures way of slowing you down a little I guess. I worked out all the time though as well as while I was pregnant.

  • Baby #1 it took me 6 months, this baby is 3 weeks old today & I still have 18 lbs. to lose, but I think it will only take me 3-6 months b/c I'm going back to work full time next week and when I work, I am moving a lot & so busy I forget to eat sometimes, so I'm not worried about losing the weight. GL!

  • With all 5 of mine I lost all of my weight within a couple weeks, but I only gained 12-22 lbs with each (pre pregnancy between 115-125). It took a couple months for everything to shift back to where it was supposed to be, but the weight was gone.
