Dr always told me, It took you 9 months to put it on, it'll take you that long to lose it. But I only gained 17lbs and lost it in the first 3 months.

I gained about 50 pounds ( 40 pounds over my pre-preg weight bc i lost a lot of weight by week 7) and by the second week I was only 6 pounds over my pre-preg weight. I really didn't do anything special to lose it

I dot see why you HAVE to gain 25lbs. But if you plan to breastfeed it burns 500 calories a day and will be a huge help in getting back into shape after baby.

Quoting .Colleen.:" If you only gain around 25 it will pretty much take care of itself. I was back to my pp weight by 2 weeks after having both kids. Do you plan to BF? That burns alot of calories"


Whaaaa. My body f**king blows :x

Quoting .Colleen.:" :( I didn't really have healthy pregnancies so I am not a good example :oops:"


Took me forever to lose the weight and breastfeeding did nothing :evil: But then again it's almost impossible for me to lose any weight at all ever either... hmmm.



:lol:

I gained 15 and lost 25 by the time I was 1 week pp. I gained 30 after I had her though between depression and not enough exercise.

Quoting .Colleen.:" That sucks :( I am fortunate to have a decent metabolism and low blood sugar, so I typically burn shit up. But I do need to start eating more responsibly. I know it won't last forever"


UGH don't remind me. That's so depressing to think about.

I gained nearly 70 pounds first pregnancy & lost it all by 6 months. Everyone is different though. But like someone else said, 25 pounds will pretty much take care of itself and fall off.

25 lbs should be easy to lose. I gained 60 and it took less then 6 months to get it all off. The first 40 fell off & the last 20 I had to work off.
Staying active, eating healthy and breast feeding should knock 25 off within 6 weeks of giving birth.

I gained 25lbs during my pregnancy and lost it all before my baby turned a week old.
