No progress, no hope? Mandy Schlatterer Due March 27; 2 kids; New Port Richey, Florida 1334 posts

I've gone from couch potatoe lazy and half my diet fried foods and mayo, to 100% boring healthy food and going to the gym daily until I can't push myself any further and I still look 6 months pregnant...



I've been doing this for about 10 days now. I'd think I'd see a little something. Some kind of improvement. But no.



Is that normal? Are there some people that just can't lose the belly?

You've only been doing it for 10 days. Give you body some time.

Ten days is definitely not enough time to really see a difference. One month, maybe.

I think you just need to keep going for awhile. ten days is not really that long and it could just be that the results aren't enough to be recognized yet. It sounds like you're on a good track though just keep up the good work. How far PP are you?

Rule of thumb:



4 weeks for you to see a difference.
8 weeks for those close to you to see a difference
12 weeks for general population to notice.



Give it some time. :)

It's only been ten days girl! Give it some time! Have you taken before pictures and taken measurements? Those are good ways to track progress. The scale doesn't always give you accurate answers and you don't always see your progress since you see yourself 24/7.

Im 8 Weeks PP and I still have a pooch myself. You have to give it a little more time it took 9 months to get your body that way its okay if it takes 9 months to bounce back. I gained 50 lbs with my ds and I've lost 33 so far but I know r this lasy 17 poounds ain't gonna be as easy as the first pounds to go off. We just gotta keep working at it : ) we can do it but it takes persistence

Give it some more time! Keep at it and you will see a change. Take measurements and chart you changes so you can actually feel accomplished. Take pics too you may not notice change in the mirror bc it's so gradual but you will notice it if you put two pics together to compare.
