Could I get a pat on the back for losing some pg weight?

I've never posted here before, but I hope you don't mind me jumping in. I've usually been pretty slim, but gained a lot of weight in pregnancy. At my last weigh-in, I'd lost about 30 lbs. Another 12 to go until I reach my pre-pg "cut-off" weight (what I try not to go above, which is still 5 lbs more than when I got preg with my son).

I'm not sure what's normal, except the "9 months to go on, 9 months to come off" rule of thumb, and I'm definitely not trying to make anyone feel bad or compete with anyone. I try to walk/bike with my dog when I can (at least once a day) and I don't follow a diet except eat mostly healthy food. I BF, which makes me hungry, but I've always been a big eater. DS is just under 4 1/2 months old.

Anyway, a few hoorahs would make me feel good. I will return the favour or provide encouragement as necessary. Btw, I bought a pair of Guess jeans that fit now and make me feel good instead of making myself crazy trying to fit into all my pre-pg clothes. Any other tips? Thanks!

Congratulations on your weight loss! I am already planning on my "attack" after this little one is here... it seems like such a daunting task. I hope those last 12 come off quickly!
