How long did it take you to lose the 40 lbs you gained while pregnant? I've hit the 40 lb mark and have a week or so left until my daughter arrives. I want to lose this weight as quick as possible this time around! I gained 60 lbs with my son and it took me about 9 months to lose it all without doing anything besides eating healthier... Any tips to drop these pounds within 3 or 4 months after having her?
I'm at around 33 lbs, but was already overweight when I got pregnant so I want to lose more than that. I plan on breastfeeding, since EVERYONE tells me it helps, and it's good for the baby, and free! yay. Also plan on eating healthier, and walking and exercising once my Dr gives me the okay...
watching for other suggestions.

I've always gained 32-40 lbs while pregnant and I lost it really quick with my 1st, it just kind of felloff...my 2nd I gained 40 and I lost all but 2lbs in 4 months...but then got pregnant with my baby boy! And I gained about 35 with him and it took about 6 months to lose it! I never dieted until I was trying to lose the baby weight with my youngest...and I drank those special K protein shakes for breakfast, I'd have a healthy choice meal for lunch...drink protein water if I got hungry again before supper. Then just eat whatever i was cooking for the kids, just smaller portions! And I lost all of it and then some in about a month or so...I lost about 15lbs!! I was 102 then!!

It took me around 5 or 6 months to lose all 40, but then by 9months pp I lost 7 more pounds.
i lost the 40 with my first LO within a month, doing NOTHING. But I never lost my belly. I've gained 30 so far with this one and I still have 2 months left :shock:
A lot of it fell off from breastfeeding and walking. I ran the rest off and went to the gym after the bleeding stopped.

I gained almost 60 lbs . Breastfeeding didn't help. And I would get 2 hours of sleep the first few months, no way in hell I could exercise. So after awhile of finally going back to work and eating healthy it took me 1 yr. Not easy for me
i gained 37 and lost it all in a little over a week but i was already "over weight" so im trying to lose more :) i've already lost more then my pre-preg :D oh and im breastfeeding
lol I hope I am as lucky as some of you and lose it all within a month, but I doubt I will. If I can lose it all within 4 months, I will be ecstatic! I want to be back in a bikini by March!
I gained around 40lbs both pregnancies. And with my DD it took me ages to lose it, but only cause i wasnt trying. When i started trying it started falling off. I wanna lose weight straight after this ones born lol
