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

I tend to lose it all in a short time and then gain a bit of it back. I've been pg and/or breastfeeding for over six years so I have no idea what my figure will do when I'm all done. My hips are definitely wider, I have a curvier figure than I did before kids. I like it for the most part, I'm just waiting for my skin to realize that my uterus isn't 1,000 times bigger than it's non-preggers size and I'd like to fit easily in a size 10 again.

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

Well, considering that I was 14lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight at 6 months, I was almost 30lbs below pre-pregnancy weight a week pp. Now, at almost 5 months pp, I have gained back almost all 30lbs. So technically it took me 5 months to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. *sighs*

yep.
LOL.
hyperemesis the whole way, i lost a buttload (no pun intended) of weight!

If it makes anyone feel any better, in the 6 months after the birth, i gained back everything i had lost, and a bitT more...and am now about 7 pounds heavier than my pre-preg weight....and this while nursing constantly...*sigh*
Right there with you mama! Lost 30 lbs from pre-PG weight, and now that DS is almost 5 months old (and still nursing every 2 hours!) I'm right back up at pre-PG weight. Gah.

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

I lost the pregnancy weight by 3 weeks post partum. However, none of my body parts were quite the same. I no longer had much of a waistline, and everything seemed...saggy!

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

Well, I gained 67 lbs and lost that plus 10 more within 9 months.

However, I didn't lose much at all for the first 3 months or so.

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

With my 3 year old, I got pg at 124. After strict bedrest and a high protein diet, and steriod shots (given at 180) I delivered her and was at 212 (that was taken several days BEFORE she was born). I couldn't ever get below 180! I don't know if those steroid shots screwed up my body chemestry or what, but no matter what I try, I coudln't get below that...

With my 1 year old, I gained 30lbs, and lost it in about 5 months or less. BUT I'm still above 180. Now I'm pg again, and i'm at 194, and i'm almost 6 weeks! I have an entire wardrobe of clotehs that I can't wear, and I HATE it. Now, I'm just having to relax, because I'm pregnant and I can't diet! I'm trying to straighten out my eating habits, but it's SO HARD when the ONLY thing that sounds good and doesn't gag me is pizza! LOL!

ugh!

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

With my first I was below my starting weight within the first month. Non stop nurser! The second was about the same. The third was the same but my body started to look different. Clothes fit but belly was higher and soft. Now after my fifth I am again near starting weight but I really need to exercise to tighten things up. What types of exercising have you done to tighten up.
Thanks!
Cindy

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

I voted pp weight when I left the hospital, but I was actually below that. Little Miss is 18 days old now, and I am 10 pounds under pp weight. I guess it helps that I only gained 15 pounds during pregnancy, and she was 8 pounds 9 oz. at birth.

I just got to my prepregnancy weight and baby is three months old.

That might sound pretty good, but I started out about 50 lbs overweight, so I"ve got a LONG way to go yet! LOL!
