I had to get my staples out today and they weighed me.  I was really hoping to be closer to my pre baby weight but it looks like i still have 13 more lbs to loose=(  How long did it take you?  I feel like its taking forever...i just wanna be back to normal again!!

My son is 3 and I'm pregnant again! I was 14 lbs away from my pre-baby weight when I found out I was pregnant! No biggie, I'm planning on watching my weight this time!!

It took me almost 2 years but I really didn't try until October '09 and I was able to get it off in 8 weeks and am still losing weight even though I really don't want to lose anymore, I want to start sculpting and building muscle.

Glad to know I'm not the only one.  I had a c-section so i cant exercise yet...I'm just dying to get out side to go running or walking or something to finish loosing this baby weight

Technically 2 years, BUT I had to gain weight not lose!

I was 137 when I was in labor and then when I left the hospital I was 117, got down to 114. My pre preg weight was 122, and Now at almost 3 years later I fluctuate between 119 and 123! But it took me almost 2 years to get to 120!

I had the same problem.  I once got down to 95 lbs.  I couldnt put on weight for the life of me.  I dont think people understand how hard it is to PUT on weight.  I think its so much harder then loosing weight.  Of course  this happened right before my wedding and my dress didn't fit  It sucked.  But thankfully a week before my wedding i put it on

About 2-3 months.  I got married 2 months after he was born though, so that motivated me:)

Around 5 weeks...it was all gone by my six week check.  Now the extra 25 I was toting around when I got pregnant?  I'm still working on that.  Its taken me 2 years to lose 18 of it but its been an extraordinarily stressful 2 years.
