  • Before my son I was a size 3/4 and now I wear a size 7/8!! I have tried to get down to at least a size 6 but it seems impossible. He is now 3 so I have given up trying and love me just the way I am.

  • If you don't have any health conditions, you should be able to take off all the weight in a year. Your body may not be shaped the same, but your weight itself should be back there. If you've just had your baby within that past few months, don't stress so much, it takes time. Get active and eating healthy and you'll lose it!

  • I have the exact same problem, was in a 7-8 now in a 12-13. I started the Special K challenge. You wont lose fast but its gradual. Also, doctors say that it may take a year for your weight to stop going up and down after delivery.
