DD will be 2 weeks old tomorrow , & I only have 5 more pounds to lose before I'm at my PP weight ! I gained 36 pounds throughout my pregnancy. My starting weight was 156lbs , & the morning of my c-section , I tipped the scale at 192lbs. I weighed myself this morning , & I'm 161lbs ! :D
Well , I've got a lot of weight to lose still. My goal weight is 130lbs - 125lbs. & I need to reach that weight by March 31st , as I was just informed this week that , my grandpa has planned a trip to Jamaica for my entire family ! So , I want that bikini body ! Wish me luck !
How long did it take you to get back to your PP weight ?
2 years later.... still working on it.
I was back at prepreg weight by my 6 week appointment. But I'm also very thin and a freak of nature. It took my belly a bit longer to flatten back up but it was all good by bikini season. I gained over 50 pounds :x
I'm 3 yrs out and below my PPweight I'm down 83lbs and 22lbs to go.
but seems like you're doing just great! Good job!
That's awesome :) and yay Jamaica!! After my first baby it took me about 3 seconds, literally. I had my body back by the time they put the bed back together, it was oddly rediculous. Of course everything was still a little flabby despite being at the same weight. By 3 weeks pp I was fitting my old jeans quite nicely, I may have been able to get into them sooner but the episiotomy wouldn't let me find out, lol. After my second baby it took me about 3 weeks to loose the weight and I was back into all my old clothes fitting them well by 6 or 7 weeks pp. With my third I kept the weight on until about 16 mos pp. I tried so hard to loose it and it just wouldn't budge. I gained a lot more than what I had with my previous two, my first two I gained 29 lbs each and with the last one it was 39 lbs. It wasn't until I hemmorhaged really badly (nearly died) from a post-surgical complications and was terrified to eat afterward (it was butt surgery and I didn't want anything going through there) that I finally lost the 10 lbs I was holding on to and then another 10 lbs on top of it. Of course because it was essentially the equivilant of a starvation diet, I did gain back 10 of those lbs, but I'm now finally back to my pp weight.
I wasnt lucky and my body didnt bounce back the week I gave birth. Or should I say, dropped the pounds like crazy.
I had to work my tookus off.
I was 154 prepregnancy- 162 at 40 weeks 3 days, then nine days later I was 144.
I was down 30lbs at 2wks pp (I gained 45lbs ) I'm 3wks pp now and haven't weighed myself, but I was able to put on my pre pregnancy jeans for the first time this morning :D
If I stand naked in front of a mirror, I *almost* look like myself again, except my boobs are ginormis, and my tummy is a little "softer" than it used to be :P Oh, and of course there are the stretch marks lol
ALL worth it though!!
I was 170 when I found out I was pregnant. 185 when I delivered & now I'm stuck at 155. Unfortunetly I'm carrying all my weight in my midsection. I guess I need 2 start doing more toning. I'm doing the 30 day shred but not consistantly
