I am also in the two category weight loss camp:

5lb away from pre-pg weight (was 3lbs but have to really stop eating ice cream)

BUT still 20lbs of my pre-pg weight from my first DD. .. who is now 4 1/2. Whoops!!

I have also been in a rut lately so I need to get back on track. I am planning to be back at my #1 DD pre pg weight by the end of March and then there is no going back again :D

I have lost all plus some more. My jeans are tight but I'm guessing I'm still swollen and maybe added some more hips and junk in my trunk. :lol:

I have lost all of my pregnancy weight and then some, thanks to Weight Watchers. I gained 27 pounds with Ethan, and I've lost around 40. I was down 43 pounds, but I gained back 5 over the holidays and I've only managed to re-lose about 2 of those pounds. I'm 5'4", and I weighed 149 when I got pregnant. Now I weigh 136, but my ultimate goal is 128 or 130 pounds, which would put me close to my college and wedding day weight. But, I went back to work right after Thanksgiving and, between the stress of that and all of the eating that goes with the holidays, I haven't counted a point or really watched what I've eaten in 6 weeks, and I am finding it SO hard to get back on track.

i am a total fat ass.

i was about 40lbs overweight when i got pregnant and then gained 30lbs on top of that.

i had lost it all by the time i had my 2 week post-op appt. but i'm sure i've gained some back. :roll:

i am a total procrastinator about losing weight. i work full-time. and all i want to do is lay around with dh & charlie when i get home.

and i have zero willpower. once the cookies are open - they're gone in a flash! sigh.

we just moved and haven't unpacked all of our stuff so we've been eating takeout for a week straight - so that's not helping either.

bleah.

sore subject, i guess.

I'm about 5'8 and usually pretty athletically built.

Pre TTC- i weighed about 140-145
2 years TTC and fertility drugs----gained weight
got pregnant- at 158
gave birth, weighed 186
a month post partum at 163
3 months pp at 166 (stopped BF)

so i still have a little to lose, plus the 15 lbs from all the fertiility drugs and IVF. no fun. I don't know that my prepreggo jeans will ever fit again, my body did change a lot. I am struggling to get to the gym since we are fighting sleeping issues with Will (he won't go to bed before like midnight, it was 3am the last few nights). I need to get back on schedule! I am walking a half marathon with my BIL (to help support him) and hopefully can talk him into a full. I am enjoying getting to lift weights and stuff again finally! I know it will come off eventually, so i try not to fuss too much about it.

I'm confused to say that I have lost all 26 lbs plus 5, and Madison is only three weeks old. I was most;y water weight, though...I was so swollen!! I can't wait to start working out again though...my jeans don't fit nicely b/c of the softer belly and the uterus is completely shrunk down yet...plus wearing jeans sorta makes my internal incisions hurt...is that weird? It's only been 3 weeks...

peachy - I don't think that's weird...I didn't wear jeans for awhile..I know it was after 3 weeks. All I wanted on were soft "comfy" pants, because anything else irritated my stitches!

I have exactly 5 more lbs to lose and it's a struggle!!! prepreg I was 125 and am now 130 and I was 166 when I delivered so I gained 41 lbs. I want to try to get down to my wedding weight which was 115 though so really I would like to lose 10 more lbs.

I'm below my pre-preggo weight, because I didn't really gain any with Eden. She made me so sick, I lost 15 lbs.

But I would like to lose about 12 more lbs and THAT is proving to be a royal bitch, if you'll pardon my french. I always get stuck about ten lbs away from where I'd like to be.

I call it the "eternal ten". I always want to lose ten pounds. It's just my natural state. :?

I lost all of the weight plus about 8lbs by 3 months PP

Here are my stats:
Pre-preggo- 118lbs
38 weeks pregnant (just before induction)- 158lbs
3 Months PP- 110lbs

I gained about 6lbs or so over the holidays but I am back down to 110lbs again.

We are TTC #2 and I am curious to see the outcome on the next pregnancy weight gain.
