Hi Ladies! I thought it might be nice to have a support group for ladies who started out overweight before pregnancy or those who want to support each other on weight loss after pregnancy. :-D
A little more about me:
Weighed 265 when I got pregnant and wear a size 18.
Goal: A size 7 and whatever healthy weight goes with that.
I DO plan to breastfeed. I also plan to lose weight by walking, using an elliptical, and doing pilates after pregnancy.
I am expecting TWO babies and have been told I need to gain at least 18-25 lbs. If I were having one baby I would need to gain between 8-15 lbs.
I was 246 lbs at the beginning of my last pregnancy and I gained 8 lbs. I got down to 212 lbs by one year after Bella's birth. I breastfed her until two months old.
