I gained 35 pounds with my baby. It took me about 5 months to lose it all, and I have lost an additional 5 pounds but it certainly was not without effort. I have been attempting to seriously cut down on all grains and refined sugar. It’s hella hard and every ounce feels like a battle (I can’t blame it on the baby though, it’s just my weakness for carbs). My ultimate goal is a BMI of 18.5, and I need to lose another 10 pounds to make it happen. I wish the weight would just fall off.

I did not breastfeed. My milk never came in.

@urchin:  I had a friend with a story similar to you- she is significantly smaller after having a baby like much less than her pre-preg weight. She kept it off after breast feeding as well. I think she takes good care of herself  and running around with a toddler and all the heavy lifting helps too.

I am 30lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight 2 weeks after delivery.  It’s kind of crazy, how fast I have lost it. I am breast feeding.

I gained almost 60 pounds and have lost all but 10 (15 for my wedding/super skinny weight), I’m 6 months postpartum as of next weekend. I’m breastfeeding and think that I’m holding on to the extra weight because of it. I have a low supply and have been struggling with that and any change I make in calories or amping up my exercise really affects my production, unfortunately. I’m sure after we wean I’ll be able to lose it in a snap.

And sadly my ring size and shoe size changed and I don’t think 10lbs will make any difference with that.
