I'm at the 3week and 3 day mark since delivery...and have lost more than I gained with my son, but everything isn't back where it was before...I have no idea when or if that happens lol! But I think it will come off eventually, make sure you drink lotsa water!

I had my daughter 7 months ago. Every woman is different. I weighed 128? I think b4 I was preggo and weighed 176 lol at delivery I know wow! But anyways, I lost it all in 3 weeks plus extra. I didnt do a single thing, I was pretty lazy lol so maybe not try so hard and not stress about it? That might not be the best advice but thats what I did

My daughter is 9 months old and i gained 40 pounds I lost 20 pounds in the hospital. I have not lost the other weight. I like it has to do with your metabolism and your genes. But on the other hand i do not work out either.

How much weight did you gain during your pregnancy? I gained 40 lbs, and lost 25 right away, but that last 15 is still hanging on 5 months later! Also, if you're breastfeeding you have to factor in the extra weight the milk/larger breasts adds. It's always a good idea to ask your Dr. if you're really concerned. I would say as long as you're active and you eat well, then pay more attention to how you FEEL rather than the number on the scale :) Good luck!!
