Yep I'm a stone lighter, I was the week I had him! Iv had to buy a whole new wardrobe :-D
Do you know how you lost the weight? x
No! I lost about a stone in 1st tri had mornin sickness bad, n I gained about 10lb of it back thruout the rest of pregnancy, then I had him n I havnt stopped eatin just breastfeedin!
It's so different than after dd I hardly lost any n most was still on when I fell pregnant again so that's all the weight iv lost! I had everyone tellin me it wasn't healthy n thinkin I wasn't eatin but it really was just fallin off although now it seems to have come to standstill x
I'm 3 stone lighter then pre-pregnancy! I didn't weigh myself during pregnancy but had bad sickness throughout, when I weighed myself a couple of days after birth I was 2 stone less then pre-pregnancy and ive list another stone since! I haven't been trying but am delighted as I'm now a uk size 8, I was 12/14 before.
I'm pretty much the same! Does it not worry you? I just feel so thin. Are you breastfeeding? xx
I've read that some women that breastfeed lose very quickly while others retain the fat BUT will lose pounds 6 months into breastfeeding. The fat in our milk increases as our LOs get older, which leads to more energy expenditure on our part.
Also, I think it depends on the woman's metabolism, possible hypothyroidism, history of PCOS, insulin resistance, diabetes type II, muscle to fat ratio, age, and etc. Breastfeeding is wonderful though, isn't it?
I gained 65 lbs and lost it all. My LO is only 15 weeks. My only exercise is babywearing while doing the dishes/laundry. I do count my calories though...I try not to go over 2200/day. I think the majority of my weight loss was fluids though. I had the fattest cankles
I gained 40lbs when pregnant. I was back to pre-pregnancy weight at 3 months after delivery. Now at 6 months I am 15lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight. I am not trying to lose at all, it just keeps falling off! Yay breastfeeding (and being too busy to eat!)

I don't seem to have much of an appetite either.
Me! Before I got pregnant I weighed 170. I dropped down to 150 during pregnancy (from morning sickness etc.) At the end of pregnancy I was back up to 170. Now I am 159. Breastfeeding. Didn't do anything else to loose weight. I do go for walks to help me tone up but that has never helped me to loose weight in the past.
