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

I still weigh 5 to 10 pounds over my pre-PG weight but I am still breastfeeding so that is why. I can say it took me almost a year to lose the weight but I keep fluctuating 5 to 10 pounds throughout the past year spo I out 24 months! I am 5'6" and between 120 and 125 pounds.

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

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

DD is almost a year old and I am 16 lbs lighter than my pp weight. I was 155 when I got pregnant with her. I am now 139 and going strong losing those pounds! However, I am still heavier than my pp weight with #1. I was about 135 when I got pregnant with my son. I gained about 70 lbs in the last 2.5 months of my pregnancy with him due to preeclampsia. So I got BAD stretch marks and my tummy will NEVER be flat again without the help of a doctor.

I do, however, fit into all my clothes I had before DS was born. I am down to a size 8 now which makes me happy

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

Well.....there was all that weight I gained durning pregnancy (DH is all too willing to run out for Ben and Jerry's), that just stayed on I think in large part to PPD and it being the COLDEST winter ever the year dd was born. I lost that by 18 mo. Then I had to lose the 10lbs I gained right before I got pregnant when my FIL was dying (I tend to bake when I am sad).

21 months later and I am back to fitting all my pp clothes, but now I am aming for wedding weight!

South beach diet, it's all about the south beach diet.

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

After i had my son i lost all but 10lbs (gained 55), before i got pregnant for my dd at 3 months pp. i noticed a huge change in weight by 6wks pp
after i had my dd i lost MAYBE 20 pds (gained 60) before i got pregnant for ds#2 at 9 months pp. I dont know why i couldnt lose the weight. I know i have a thyroid problem and im taking meds for it, other than that im good. I was excersizing, eating healthy, doing everything right, or so i thought.
and i just had ds#2, 11 days ago and i havent weighed myself yet.
I know that i cant fit into any of my normal clothes yet. almost, but not yet.
