6 weeks postpartum and I gained 5 pounds!

I have been eating okay, not too healthy but not really bad-just average. I have walked a few times but nothing significant. How can I have gained 5 pounds? This is really discouraging, especially since I have a goal to lose all of the weight and more by next February. That may seem like a long time away, but I have to lose alot to get back to my normal weight. I had 2 babies in the last 2 years and so my body has really taken a beating.

That's exacly what happened to me after my first and second baby. In first six weeks after c-section a gained 10 pounds. I think that's your body gets used to the amount of food you ate while being pregnant and you have to eat as much after plus you can't realy exercise with a newborn.
