Holy Weight Loss Batman!

I went in for my 2w postpartum check up, and I've lost 27lbs! I gained 30 excluding an 8lbs weight loss at the beginning. I'm below my prepregnant weight, and I've got 3lbs to go. I'm kind of shocked and a little worried. I'm starting to think maybe I was borderline preeclampsic. Especially when you factor in how high my BP went during and after L&D. (165/98 at its highest during labor, 154/95 after for about a day.)

With DD, I was 19. I gained 38lbs, and lost 25...I guess being older and fatter has its advantages. Then again, it could have to do with me actually having energy again.  I'm used to being active. With my little man, he sucked it all out of me.

  • Once again, samers! One week post partum I was 3 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I gained 30 in all as well.
  • Woah. Jealous 

     I gained 33lbs, and I'm down 15... And haven't lost any since like 2 weeks PP 


    Congrats :)

  • Thats awesome, me and the scale aren't speaking I don't want to know yet, im scared it wont say what I want it too. 
  • Way to go!

    If I'd only gained 30 like I wanted to, I'd be right there. However, I gained 50, so 20 to go. :( Oh well, at least it seems to be coming off easier and faster than with DD1.

  • A GD diagnosis kept me from gaining much....10 pounds total and dd was 8lbs 9 oz. At my 2w I was below my pre-preg weight by 19 pounds. So I lost 30 pounds after having her. I am happy to be on my way to getting to my goal but still have a ways to go. 

    I just wish I didnt need to lose another 45 to be happy wih myself :/

    Isn't it nice??  I lost 25 lbs in the first 2 weeks.  I had gained 17 with LO, but was considered 30 lbs overweight from the beginning.  I would like to lose 20 more but nothing has come off since.  I guess I need to be carefull so I don't gain it back!

  • Congrats!

     I actually lost 10lbs during pregnancy and then another 22 after DS was born so I'm 30lbs under my pre pregnancy weight.  I'm taking advantage of the head start and going to get more off! 

  • I lost 30 lbs too... although I gained 40.

    A lot of mine was water though... I left the hospital down 15 lbs, and then peed out another 15 within 3 days. Of my remaining 10 lbs, I've convinced myself that half of it is boob weight... that's my story and I'm sticking to it :)


  • Thats amazing. I love it now just waiting to get to the gym to tone up again. I gained 60lbs and am 8days pp and already lost 30lbs :)
  • Awesome, congratulations!

     I was down 24 of the 25 pounds I gained during pregnancy at 2 wks pp. I'm BF'ing though so I think that's a few pounds extra I'm carrying around. The before & after photos that we took show the difference. holy moly. I was so swollen in my legs, feet & face. I'm anxious to get back to the gym, but I'm only 3 wks pp now... my arms are so jiggly! ewwww 

    + 6/1/11, due 2/12/12. natural m/c 7/1/11 @ 7w5d

    + 9/3/11, due 5/13/12. Overdue baby, born 5/25/12 :)

  • I weigh 10 lbs LESS now than I did before I got pregnant. I've lost a lot of weight, very quickly.  My midwife was actually concerned because my LO wasn't gaining a lot of weight and she thought it had something to do with my rapid wight loss and she's actually put me on a high-fat diet until LO's weight gain is better.

    I actually need to go buy new jeans because all my PP ones are too big.
