    I'm so glad I can finally join this thread!

    Height: 5'9"
    Pre-Pregnancy weight: 138.5 lbs
    In labour at 40w2d: 187 lbs
    Total Gain: 48.5 lbs (eek!)
    1 week Post Partum: 173.5 lbs (-13.5 lbs)

    I gained 36 lbs during my last pregnancy and it took until 6.5 months PP to lose it all (physically I didn't do much the first 2 months because of a bad tear). Had another bad tear this time around, so expecting the return to physical activity and weight loss to take about the same amount of time or a bit longer. Currently 10 days PP and tempted to get on the scale every day but I know it will drive me nuts if the number goes down slowly. I'm going to try to limit myself to only weighing in once a week.

    Congrats on the new baby! I just wanted to say sorry about the tear. I had a 3rd degree the first time around and a 2nd the next two times. I'm glad to hear that you're going to be easy on yourself. That to me was one of the worst parts about having a baby. Sleepless nights are one thing but pain for a couple of weeks just made everything harder. Best of luck!

    It's been a while since I've checked in because the scale has not been moving much.

    Pre-preg: 190
    Day of delivery: 214 (7/10/14)
    Total gain: 24 lbs

    Week 3 postpartum: 183
    Week 6 postpartum: 175
    Week 11 postpartum: 171
    Total loss: 43 lbs from highest pregnancy weight.

    My goal is 165 by October and 150 by December.
    Ultimate goal is 135-140.

    ^^ I might come close to 165 by the end of October... That would mean I have to lose 15 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of December. I think I can. I've been working really, really hard with exercising daily and eating healthfully.

    ETA: Still exclusively breastfeeding, I only pump when I'm engorged.

    5'2"/5'3"
    PP baby #3: 135
    Day of Delivery: 157.0 (22 lb weight gain)
    Evening I came home from hospital: 148.8
    1 month: 142.4
    2 months: 138.8
    3 months: 135.8
    4 months: 130.8
    5 months: 128.6

    Weight loss has really slowed down. My goal weight was 125, but now that I'm approaching it I'm till not thrilled with how I look. Might keep going to 120 if I can find the motivation. I was 120-125 when I was in high school and when I got married over 11 years ago. Excited to be this close yet annoyed that it's going slower...but I'm not trying as hard as I should be.

    I'm so glad to FINALLY be able to watch the numbers go DOWN!!!

    July 2013, I had been at my goal weight of the upper 120s when my husband returned from a long deployment. Thanks to "honeymooning" and eating crap together, put on 15-20lbs and didn't lose it before getting preggo.

    1/1/14 Pre-preg: 145lbs

    10/5/14 Ended pregnancy at 199.6! (Whoa! Almost 55lbs gained!)

    10/19/14 2 weeks PP- down 18 lbs (181.6)

    I was 169 (dr scales) at first pre natal appointment. Then 199 at my last appointment. At my 6 week check up I was 189. I know, BS!!! I had a 7 pound baby wth!!! The doctor said I looked like I lost more but my thighs say otherwise. I am now at 178 (my scale). I feel that the breastfeeding is actually working against me and I ended up with more pregnancy symtoms after pregnancy (swelling etc). I am now 14 weeks post partum and am finally starting to feel like I am getting back to normal. Its going to be slow going for sure, when do you work out, when you work and your husband is not home???? Just keep doing one day at a time.

    Yay! Glad I can post to this thread now!
    I am 10 days post-partum, and have lost 27lbs of the 45 I gained during pregnancy.

    Pre-preg Starting weight: 138-140
    Highest pregnancy weight: 184 (that I know of)
    10 days PP- 158

    I had a TON of fluid to lose, so hoping I might have a few more lbs of easy loss over the next week or so.
    I had a C/S and have recovered great. Hubby is having to keep me honest and keep me from doing what I really want to do, which is get back to running, stat!

    Let's see, I gained 42 lbs while pregnant. I am six weeks PP and am down 25 lbs. 17 lbs. to go. I told myself that at six weeks PP, I'd start tracking and get back into an exercise routine. My long term goal is to lose an extra 10 lbs in addition to the 17 over the next year.

    Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Any advice/ suggestions from experience re: weight loss while breast feeding?

    Gosh, time really flew by! Unfortunately, I got stalled around at 20lbs lost and then ended up gaining over the holidays. I started the New Year at 188lbs. :neutral_face: Its been a month and I'm down to 175.2! Yay! Still have a long road ahead, but I feel like I finally have some momentum. Baby will be 4 months next week! My goal for Feb is to get down to 168 by the end of the month.
