Post partum mommy

just had my baby boy 4 weeks ago. Have already lost 30 of the 45 pounds I gained during pregnancy. I am 154 now and want to get back down to 120 like I was before I got lazy. Looking to connect with others trying to lost weight. Add me

    Congratulations on the baby! AND congrats on losing so much of the baby weight. :)
  • Thank you. What is your story???
  • Congrats on the progress so far. My wife and I just had our first and she is also in the process of getting back to her pre baby weight and then some. As for me I got to get my blood pressure under control and want to do it without meds. Feel free to add.

    Wow! I can't believe you've lost so much baby weight so quickly, that's impressive! I also gained almost 45 pounds during my pregnancy, and by 4 weeks post partum I had only lost 10 pounds of it. :( I started back with MFP at 4 weeks post partum and have lost another 18 since then but still have a ways to go. My baby is 11 weeks old now.

    I'm 7 weeks postpartum and very frustrated. I had 2 babies back to back. They're 1 year and 9 days apart. I feel like I've been pregnant for 2 years. I was always so active, but due to my fear of another miscarriage I stop everything except for walking. I have to drop 26 lbs to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight of 120. It feels like such a daunting task. Juggling 2 babies, cooking, cleaning, and everything in between. I'm usually exhausted by 9pm, when will I find the time and energy to be my active old self. Anyone feel free to add me.
