So don't shoot me for asking the question, but how is everyone doing losing their baby weight?

I have lost 12 extra pounds so far, but have about 18 pounds more that I want to lose in order to be at my ideal weight.

At at PP checkup, I was at 118, which is about 5 pounds more than at my first pg appointment. I don't really want to lose any more weight, I'm ok with the 118, but I REALLY want to get rid of the remnants of belly that are left. I never did completely get rid of it from my first pg. But, I've started running, and I'm hoping that will help it disappear!

I am actually 15 lbs below my pre pregnancy weight and was back in my jeans/pants a few days after Maddie was born. My last two pregnancies have been like a miracle weight loss program for some reason. I gained only 15lbs this pregnancy and last but gained 35 with my oldest DD.

I've got 5 lbs left of my pregnancy weight also and then I want to lose 20 lbs to get to a good weight. My husband is big on health & exercise and goes to the gym nearly every day. He encourages me to go but it's hard because I like to go in the evening but then it starts to get too late and I get up at 5:15am. But I've been trying to go once or twice a week.
