weight loss?

How much weight have you lost?

I gained about 35 lbs with this pregnancy, lost about 12 coming home from hospital and now 6 weeks later, I've only lost an additional 3. So I'm still 20 lbs more than pre- pregnancy. My tummy has shrunk quite a bit though.

My pregnancy weight goes back a while now. With dd1 I gained about 40 lbs and lost 35 before ending up pregnant again. With dd2 I did much better and only gained about 24 lbs and it all came off already. I was amazed how fast the scale dropped back down.
So now I have 5lbs left to reach my true prepregnancy weight and then another 30-40lbs to reach a more appropriate weight for my height. I am happy to have had such a good start but I do have a long way to reach my happy weight.

I gained about 80 pounds--triple or so what I did with my others--and have lost 20-25. If I eat right it keeps coming off.. last couple days I haven't been.
