I kept losing, and it worried me too, mainly because I just wasn't trying to lose more. So for peace of mind I went to my doc and had a full blood count done. All was normal but the doc said pregnancy can throw off your thyroid, etc. Pregnancy has changed my body in so many little ways, one of them is just a better metabolism too! I weigh 116 and was 125 pre-baby.
I def do, although I don't know how much less I weigh, clothes that were v tight pre preg are now falling off me. I just think I don't have tome to constantly graze like I did before preg. I'm also bfing. I think I started losing weight pretty much immediately so I'm sure it's fine Hun x
Not yet but I hope to get there soon!! I gained 55lbs during this pregnancy (went from 145 up to 200!!) and am sitting at 160lbs now. I breastfeed lots and lost the first 40lbs within about 8 weeks but these last 15lbs are stubborn!!
It was the same with my first pregnancy too. I didn't gain quite as much but lots of weight fell off at first and then I really had to work at the last 10-15lbs. I refuse to remain above my pre-pregnancy weight though; we want a 3rd baby some day and I won't even try to conceive until I weigh my normal weight.
I'd like to drop these last 15lbs by mid-June, ready for summer when baby is 6.5 months old. I just need to cut the crap food I eat! lol
I don't think I will ever get back to my pre-pregnancy weight! I was 8 stone 3 (I'm five foot six) and am now 8 stone 9! I am hoping when I go back to work and cycle there and back again I will get back to 8 stone 3. I have a feeling it may not happen though :-)
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
That makes sense-I lost all my cellulite breastfeeding dd1
I put I think 1stone 5lbs on during pregnancy approx 2 weeks later I had 5lbs left to get to pre-pregnancy weight. I am now 3lbs lighter than pre pregnancy. I still want to lose 1stone to be what I was when we got married so a way to go yet! I have had a terrible 2 months eating and exerise wise. When I go back to work I will be back to walking just over 2 miles per day!!
