How is everyone doing postpartum? Is the weight coming off? Already less than when you got pregnant? A long way to go?

I have about 5 more pounds to lose, so I am not too worried. Lots of work needed firing and toning! I will ease back into the gym over the next two months, probably. I can wear a few of my regular pants, but not many. My boobs are about 1 cup size larger so that's not impacting much. My last pregnancy it was 2 cup sizes! Nothing else seems to have changed too much, so I think I will be back to normal soon.

Weight's not too bad. I'm within about 10 of pre pregnancy but that was about 10 above my happy weight thanks to all the hormones from treatment and running the marathon. On the way though...I started running a bit and doing pilates at home. I am up 2 cup sizes so a lot f my work tops and blazers absolutely do not fit. Not good since I'm back to work in 2 1/2weeks!

I'm a couple of pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight, but I had gained 30 pounds in the time after I got married and before getting pregnant.

I was fitting back into my regular jeans the week after she was born and back to my pre-Leela weight at my postpartum appointment. BUT I'm still 30 pounds heavier than my pre-Violet weight AND need to lose 30 or 40 additional pounds after that, soooo I'm not exactly celebrating yet :). My body is pretty gross and I fear losing weight will just make me even flabbier, but I'd like to do it anyway!

l lost like 35 pounds in the week after Ronan was born,but he was 12 lbs of it, so that wasn't too shocking. I only gained 20 the entire time, but I'm still 15 pounds heavier than I was with my first baby. With my first, I gained like 50 pounds! And I got pregnant with the second when my first was only 4 1/2 months old, so I like to think I didn't get the chance to lose the weight, rather than thinking I just got lazy, haha.
