  • I got up to 190. When I returned home, about a day after delivering my son, I weighed 168. So, just from the birth, I lost 22 lbs.

  • I lost 10 pounds with my first and 25 with my second. I definitely ate much healthier with my second and drank much more water.

  • I gained 50 pounds while pregnant and have ten left four months later. I have not been exercising at ALL and for awhile ate like I was eight months pregnant (I apparently found the appetite I never had while pregnant!). The only thing I can really attribute it to is my good metabolism and breastfeeding!

    I left the hospital weighing about the same as I did when I went in (even after having a 9 pound baby) because I was so swollen. It took about 10 days to lose the first 10, then another week to lose another 10, then I stayed at the for awhile...and then lost another ten, leveled out for awhile, then lost the OTHER 10. :)

  • I went in at 190 and left at 170. So 20lbs.

  • i lost 30 nearly instantly. my daughter was 9.2 and there was a TON of water. I also had a c section if that makes any difference

  • I gained 55 pounds and lost 20 on delivery. But i had a c-section and couldnt work out for a while. I just started working out a few weeks ago and havent lost anything yet.
