I am a 24 yr. old mother of 2 and have had sooo much trouble losing weight after the kids. Before I was pregnant with my now almost 5 yr. old daughter, I was so skinny. I developed toxemia during the pregnancy and gained OVER 100 lbs before they induced my labor. I ended up having an emergency c-section due to complications. I only lost around 40-50 of those pounds (over 30 of which was water-weight alone without any water pills) at the beginning. Over a period of 3-3 1/2 yrs, I finally was starting to lose more and was only 40 lbs from my goal. I was so happy and proud of myself at the same time. Then in Aug. of 2009, I find out I'm pregnant again with my now 8 month old son and gained all the weight back. I'm having trouble losing the weight again and in fact I'm gaining weight. It seems like I've tried everything. It's depressing and aggravating all at once. Is there anyone else out there that have this same problem? How long after your baby was it before you lost all your baby weight? And are there any secrets or tricks to help speed up the process?
