I was 190 prebaby and I was stuck at 223 (highest weight of 229 not pregnant)until I started my weight loss journey.now I'm 212.4.

my goal weight is 140 .I have never been that small,and I'm 21 with only one child so I'm hoping my body is still elastic LOL

Before I was pregnant, I weighed about 145 but was very unhealthy, didn't exercise, ate like crap, etc.  I was a size 12 at 145.  I'm now at 160 and a size 8 working towards 145 again:)  But I'm in the best shape I've ever been in and I eat much better!

I don't know what my weight was before all my babies, but I was a size 8. I'm back down to that now! I'm even fitting into a snug 6 :)
I worked out a lot before my kids but didn't eat great. I'd say I'm in better shape now :)

Well, let's see... I was 85 lbs when I gradauated HS in 93'. When I got married in 95', I was 105 lbs... after spending 4 lazy years in ND, I was 165 lbs. When I got pregnant the first time, I gained 17 lbs and through depression after Kahlan was stillborn lost 30 lbs...then, I gained it back eating crap and working 2 jobs to pay for our adoption of Lilly. I lost 35 lbs in just 4 months before we left for China. When we came home, I began gaining it back as I was so focused on Lilly and her attachment. I got pregnant with Karli and gained 17 lbs with her. She was 4 lbs 8 oz at 34 weeks when she was delivered. I was 167 in 2009 when I first started my journey. Within 9 months, I had lost 57 lbs and over 50" off my body- 110 lbs and a size 0. Now, a year later, I am 121 lbs- a gain of 11 lbs. I have never been in such good shape though. I run 3-4 x per week as well as do only Beachbody programs and I eat very well. Would I like to shed this 11 lb gain? Yep...but I want to be in great shape more.

Before pregnancy, I was 115. Post pregnancy  now I am 110. I am in amazing shape now though compared to what I was before pregnancy. I workout sometimes two times a day 5 days a week and cut out all the junk food.
