 I gained 39lbs durring my pregnancy. I still havent lost all the weight but it looks good on me and I look healthy. I only lost 9lbs. I lost the weight by moving in to an apartment with a staircase that I have to climb to get to bed and the bathroom. Climb up and down that a few billion times a day and most of those times with a baby and you lose fat and gain muscle lol.

How much weight did you gain while pregnant? a ridiculous amount, we'll pretend it was only 40lbs though :)

How long did it take you to loose the weight? I dont understand... people lose the weight? 


And especially HOW DID YOU LOOSE THE WEIGHT? Idk, i'll let you know when it happens -lowers head in shame-

I gained 26 with my first and I gained 45 with my second. It tool me 2 weeks to lose it with both. I didn't do anything to lose it. It Just came off naturally. I am naturally skinny And have a fast metabolism. The only time I gained weight in life was while pregnant. I also dance ballet on a regualr basis.

I should add... my DD is 5 years old. LMAO  XD

 I was over weight before i got preggo, its always been a battle for me, in total, i'd like to lose 80lbs, atleast 50 is pre preggo weight though.

Things have settled down for me lately though and i've been trying to stick with the leancuisine dinners (their steamer bags are soooo good) and get atleast 30 minutes of cardio 5 times a week. 

Do you have a friend who wants to lose weight too? Its a great motivator to have another person to be responsible to, keep each other motivated.

I wish I was like that! When I went for 2 week check up I was almost back to prepregnancy weight but then at 6 weeks I got mirena and had been gaining weight steadily over the last 18 months so i am tired of weighin what I do and want my old body back!

with my first pregnancy i gained about 40 lbs and lost it about three months after. But i also did a lot of walking only during but after i had my baby. Im hoping this time around i can lose the weight just as easy.

I don't really have anyone who wants to workout with me I tried that.. And I live in the country so a gym really isn't an option unless I drive to town everyday!
