I've gone back to work part time for the last 2 weeks, and leaving him at daycare can still sometimes be hard.

Right now I'm not even worried about 'weight', it's more firming and toning. My thighs, butt, love handles, back, and arms really need some work!! Not to mention that awful fat pad at the back of my neck.. what on earth is that?!? LOL.
I know exactly how you feel; I feel like there's fat in places that it just doesn't need to be....like my back. Not to mention that I was finally okay with my legs, but now they are back up to elephant status for me. ugh. I lost 1 pound the past 2 weeks...if that even counts!

I lost 26lbs in the first 2 weeks and have stalled now with 10lbs to go before I am my pp weight. I lost a ton of weight with ds from nursing and hope to not lose that much again because I am tall and thin already and I was looking pretty skeleton like and yucky. I like having a bit of junk in the trunk

Hi! Our kids are almost the same age I am not tall and skinny, however!

My MIL actually said that I had gotten "too skinny" after B****** my first for a year. Umm...I was 130 pounds and I'm only 5'3". Hardly waif-like! I was in size 6 GAP jeans and happy!

Re: Weight Loss Thread

I was 117 when I got pregnant with DD#1, 129 when I got pregnant with DD#2 (I'm 5' 4.5" with a small frame). I think I hit close to 180 with this pregnancy. I'm down to 151, which is down 11 pounds from what I weighed at 6 weeks PP, so I'm happy with the weight loss so far. I'm working out 5 times a week for 45 minutes to an hour. I'm EBF, and it is hard to figure out how much to eat. Mainly I eat well but I don't track calories so perhaps there's room for improvement. I'd almost like to see where I get just by exercising and eating healthy foods and then switch over to really watching what I eat if I stall out somewhere.

Oh, and my goal is to get back into the 120s. I was a size 2 or 4 when I got pregnant this time (was a 00 or 0 the first time - too skinny!) and was happy with everything except my loose stomach skin, and I know there's nothing to be done outside of surgery for that. (And I am NOT having elective surgery!)
