    You ladies got me all thinking about PP and after having LO I do have a picture of me holding LO and thought I looked quite good for just having a baby. I think I got a bit to comftable and gained the extra and didn't actually realise until weighing myself.
    Before I had LO I has these jeans I found only my gorgeous victoria jeans and they are a size 26" waste, I only wore these weeks before having LO, I tried puttng them on and to be honest my thigh would take up both legs! Now I am pushing between size 12-14. The big question will I ever be a 26" waste again? So my new aim after reading the postpartum thread and seeing all the pictures is to loose weight and become a nice size 10 by my birthday so I can wear a fab dress/outfit. My b.day is the 21st feb. So I figured if I start tomorrow its possible. I know weigh 3ib off 10st so do able with lots of exercising, walking and healthy eating. What do you guys think? Any advice on the best things to do tyo loose weight quickly. I have some work out videos that OH got me and I am going to start one this evening and see how I get on, Its the minstry of sound, and tried just after having LO and it was very tough, the women init looked amazing and made me sooo jelous. You guys must mem the song call me, with the fitness video? It's got the man from it and most the women and they all have perfect figures. So hopefully wll give me the desired kick up the ass.
    I wont start the healthy eating tonight as I have tea already preped of pork chow mein, egg rice and sweet and sour chicken and can't wait for it. Wish me all luck, ill keep you posted on how it all goes :thumbup:

    I was one of those girls who wasn't skinny after the birth but I did become quite fit after. Honestly it takes a long time of dedicated healthy eating (healthy, not crash dieting) and exercise to really make a lasting difference. IMO as a bodybuilder and workout nut, I would say that 4 weeks is just too soon. I usually recommend 4-6 weeks before expecting any changes, and 6+ months for more long-term results :)

    All physical appearance aside, making a long lasting lifestyle change takes time, but we need to do it to stay healthy for our babies. Too many of us have lost our parents at a young age due to heart disease, diabetes, other health complications. I myself could never do anything physical with mine as my mom had a heart attack at 37 and my dad was an alcoholic. I do it for my boy, above all else.

    Good luck to you!!!

    Good luck hun. I was also size 6 before getting pregnant, & was size 16 (UK) after giving birth. Now I'm size 8. I'm not taking exercising very seriously, but I'm eating healthy. I only need to loose an inch to fit into my skinny jeans. It's hard work with a toddler, but it's acheivable. Best luck xx

    The bell mcandrew DVDs are brilliant. I was six stone ten before I got pregnant and went up to just over nine stone when pregnant. I'm now just over seven stone so a bit more to lose but it's all on my belly. I've been doing the hula hoop on the wii fit every day recently which is really making a difference to my love handles x

    good luck! I'm busy on my "Quest to fit into this damn 22" corset and not look like a sausage with a zip tie round it" I'm sure will take at least 6 months. If I can do it anyone can.
