That's what I'm afraid of! I lost my preg weight really quickly and I'm now 5 lbs less than what I weight pre preg. I only gained 28 lbs and was back to my pp weight w/in about 6 weeks. I guess I just got lucky, but I did have gestational diabetes and was on a diet in the last trimester, so I didn't gain much weight.

I gained around 48 lbs, and I still have 12 to lose. I've been really dragging though so I haven't been very motivated to work out. One of these days I'll get with the program!

I gained 21 lbs and was below my pre-pg weight by my 6 week check up. And then I lost 10 more (I love breastfeeding!). My pre-pg pants are too big but now I'm pregnant again and initially lost like 7 pounds (breastfeeding and pregnant...also a 3000 calorie a day diet..hard to do unless you eat nothing but junk) but now I've gained back 2 of those. I really feel fortunate. I have PCOS and have struggled with my weight so to lose it so fast was nice. :) But I definitely have more of a belly than before. All that stretched out skin!!!

I've managed to get about 5lbs under my pre-preggo weight. But technically, I'm still over since I'm 10lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight with my first child, if that makes sense.

We don't own a scale! :D :jump:

I just don't want to know!! I know I gained at least 30lbs... I quit looking after my weekly appointments. I'm only 5'1".

I can do up some of my prepreg clothes, but I wouldn't say they "fit".

In the last two weeks have completely stepped up my game - baby and me aqua, baby and me yoga, baby and me bootcamp, walking to the classes, hiking with the dog and baby, swimming in the evenings with DH and I start back into kickboxing on Saturday.

I have always had a solid, muscular, athletic build... this mushyness is weird! The deflated spare tire must go!!

ahh, yes....

I catagorize my weight loss like that too-

lose 10lbs to Addison pre-preg weight (goal- early Feb)

lose 15lbs to Emma pre-preg weight (goal- Emma's 2nd bday, Feb 16)

lose 24lbs to wedding weight (goal my b-day in April)

lose 48lbs to realistic maintenance goal

lose 80lbs to ultimate goal


(Addison birth 275lb, now 228lb, ultimate goal 145ish)
so my total weight loss goal is about 130lbs :omg:

I lost all of my pregnancy weight by about 10 days postpartum. Granted, most of what I had gained was water weight. I still need to lose about 20 lbs, though. You'd think that ebf a 24 lb baby would make it melt off, but that just ain't happening. Maybe cause I eat like a 250 lb man. :oops:

I gained 31 with Ryan. I have 10 lbs to my pre preg weight but I want to lose about 15 more after that. I am doing weight watchers and it has been working so far!

I lost all of it right away! Then I gained 5 lbs at Christmas, but still under pregnancy weight. But now I'm preggo again...so yeh. :lol:

ETA: I am still 60 lbs overweight, thought. Even when I'm not pregnant.

Supermodel - ha!! The funny thing is that I now have the body of many of the super skinny models - and, I'm not too happy about that! I lost all of the preg. weight within 3 weeks after birth, and it just kept coming off. At my smallest, I was at 99 pounds and I'm 5'4. 8O My doc. was very concerned. Actually, if I hadn't decided to stop bf-ing on my own, she was going to tell me stop. I was eating 3 square meals a day plus snacks in between and still couldn't stop taking off weight; so, she was convinced that bf-ing was causing the weight loss. Anyway, I was very happy with the pre-pregnancy weight, and I'm slowly working back up to my 110 pound goal. So, I guess I am on the flipside of the post-baby weight struggle.

I am with tmelange, the bigger my little guy gets, the skinnier I get. I am about 10lbs below pre preg weight- no matter what I eat! It sounds great but it's actually a little scary to see the pounds and my pants falling off. I'm 5'2 and barely tipping the scale at 102 lbs. I'm at high school weight- except with bigger boobs and a softer belly.
