S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I don't know if this is where it goes, but...

How long did it take for you to lose the weight you gained during pregnancy?

Almost two years later I'm 3 lbs from my prepreg. weight.

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I'd lost all my pregnancy weight from #5 by 6 mos PP and then gained a couple lbs back but lost them again! LOL I'm still working on the pregnancy pounds from #4 and have about 35lbs to go...

I lost 30 of my 61lbs with my twins when I left the hospital and lost the rest within a yr. I lost my pregnant lbs w/ #3 within a yr as well. I tend to get pregnant again right around the 1yr mark (not this time I hope! LOL) and hadn't lost it all when I got pregnant w/ #5.

I was down to my pre-pregnancy weight at 6 weeks post partum. I was five pounds above it at my 4 week pp check. I gained 30lbs (about 6lbs. of retained water... eek) and was in the middle of my healthy weight range for height when I began. Plus I bf... so I think those all factor in.

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I never really had time to keep track of my weight pp. I was in the Army, but I know around three months or so pp I had to buy new pants cause mine were too big. So somewhere along the line I lost more than what I started with.

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

hmm, there isn't really a choice for me. I was back down to my pre-preg weight about a week after delivering.

of course I still hung on to the flab and the big boobs until I was done nursing

I should add that I lost all of my pregnancy weight plus 7 lbs while on a very strict elimination type diet while breastfeeding. Once I started adding foods back in, however, I binged on everything I couldn't have before... So back up to 3 lbs less than my heaviest during pregnancy. I'm just starting to get serious about losing it... We'll see what happens.

I am curious about this...what type of diet was this, and it was safe while bf...I need something structured as I have a really hard time losing weight while bf.

After DS#1 I had 60 lbs to lose!!! Once he was about 6 months old I started Weight Watchers...stayed the same weight, but didn't lose. Then I stopped eating most carbs (ate a few carbs as reccommended by my doc) and walked 3 miles 5 times a week...took me 8 months to lose 11 lbs

Then I was pregnant again...now I have 75 lbs to lose...

Very frustrating

Technically, it was gone (plus an additional 2 pounds!) by 9 days post-partum....


However, I gained most of it back after I quit BFing. I cracked down in April and by the time DD turned 1, I was back to my pre-preg weight (and am now almost 10 lbs below my pre-preg weight at 14 months).
