    I know! Maybe it would have been, if I would have eaten the same way I ate before getting pregnant...but holy cow...I am STARVING all the time! I'll wake up in the middle of the night to feed Bug with pangs of hunger so bad that I have to go to the kitchen and have a small glass of chocolate milk or some cereal just to make it until the morning...haha!
    Pre-pregnancy: 137

    Day the baby was born: 182

    Right after delivery: 165

    Current: 161

    Baby is 8 months old...breastfed...extremely, extremely frustrated. Booooo.

    I know, BFing isn't the awesome weight loss tool that it's cracked up to be (at least not for everyone)! I'm right there with you on that one.

    Yeah, I overdid it in my pregnancy, without a doubt. If I'd eaten like I did pre-pregnancy, I wouldn't be in this boat! I'm just trying to get as much off as possible, and hopefully it will just fall off Biggest-Loser-style (minus the starvation, drama, tears, and angry trainers) when I wean!

    Pre prego weight 150
    Delivery day 189 omg super filled of fluids
    After delivery 176

    NOW 4 1/2 month after delivery 150

    I'm gunn get back to my healthy weight 135
    I'm determined!

    Time n effort is all it takes
    Eat heathy & start walking if your having a hard time getting started.

    I had back pain for months. I couldn't bend without sharp pain, walking and stretching helped and now I can run and workout without pain.

    Prebaby: 148
    Delivery at 33 weeks: 182, baby was 5. 6 pounds
    3 months pp: 162

    I've been extremely active but my body is holding tight. I'm working on cutting down on sugar. I have huge cravings post baby. I know I didn't really start losing weight last time until 9-12 months because that's when my ds started eating more solids and breastfeeding less. Then I got knocked up again. Lol. Now I'm nursing a just turned 2 year old and a three month old. I thought I might go down faster with nursing two, but nope.

    My ultimate goal is 125-130 but my focus is more about getting strong and toned. It was a rough recovery with a c-section and a lot of blood loss (I had an abruption) so I just started running again and hopefully I'll see some progress. Daily walks aren't cutting it.

    This will be helpful to me and hopefully not discouraging to me. I have loved reading other ladies victories and struggles for me. It helps me to know that I am not alone. I also have loved seeing so many other ladies who have the same goal weight and who are at the same weight as me right now! If anyone needs more friends to help motivate, please add me! I know I do!

    Pre-Pregnancy weight: 140
    Weight at 40 weeks: 175
    Gained 35 pounds and exercised until week 32 and after that sporadic walks
    Weight at 5 weeks PP: 152

    I want to get to my pre-pregnancy weight but honestly, I would love to get to 135 or even 130 (but that might be pushing it). This is my fifth baby and last baby too. I am EBFing and trying to keep my calories around 1800 a day. I lost the baby weight so quickly after baby #1 (10 years ago when I was younger, haha). Baby #2 I didn't lose all the weight. With baby #3, I lost all the weight and almost 20 pounds extra from lots of hard work! I looked awesome and was proud! Baby #4 I lost all the weight and was happy with where I was. Now here I am with baby #5 and the weight isn't coming off as fast as it did with my others. I'm older now (33) and hopefully will be able to get it off. Eek!

    Not sure how much I gained during pregnancy as the scale and I weren't friends pre-preg. But here's my guess:

    I'm 5'0" for reference.

    Estimated pre-pregnancy weight: 138 lbs
    Estimated heighest pregnancy weight: 174 lbs
    6-week PP check-up weight: 164 lbs
    5 months PP: 162 lbs (this was my wake-up call!!)
    One year PP: 120 lbs
    Now (15 months PP): 108 lbs.

    I look better at 108 lbs than I did at 100 lbs when I was 17. Yay for muscles!

    I'm 5'4" and gained 25 pounds during this pregnancy. I was very happy about that and now hoping to see the weight fall off like it did with my first baby. Not so sure that will happen since the first time was 11 years ago. Here's my progress so far:

    Pre-pregnancy weight: 122.2
    Weight a day before delivery at 38 weeks: 147.4
    2 days postpartum: 142.4
    5 days postpartum: 135.6

    I was in the hospital for 3 days due to a uti and was getting fluids the whole time so came out swollen. I know I gained weight while in the hospital bc when I came home I hadn't even lost the weight of the baby yet. So as of today 5 days postpartum I have lost 11.8 pounds Also, my baby weighed 7 lbs 13 oz.

    Hey. I just joined this group and was reading everyones post. I see that we were about the same pre- pregancy weight, and pregnancy weight. I am curious as to how you lost the weight. Did you breast feed? My little one is 4 months old, and I breastfeed for a month and got down to 165. I am now back up at 175. What are you doing to lose weight if i might ask :)
