I gained 40 pounds. I lost almost 20 right away and now I was to lose the other 20. I also want to flatten my tummy. My son is almost 3 months old and I know I shouldn't be hard on myself, but I've always been self-conscious about my body.

I gained about 45. I lost about 30 of it the first 4 months, and now I want the other 15 gone! I cant stand the jiggling either. Nothing is where it used to be. I breast fed my son until he was 13months. It didnt seem to help the weight come off. My son is now 1 year 9 months. I turned 39 in September and wish I could loose the jiggles!
God has blessed me with motherhood! I wouldnt trade it for anything!

I weighed 194 when I found out I was pregnant and got up to 215 which was exactly where they wanted me. Because I breastfed I lost weight fast! I was back to pre-pregnancy weight within the week and then down to 186 at my 6 week check up.

I only gained 25 lbs during pregnancy but was already overweight and was really really conscious about what I ate. Baby grew great! But after he was born I went back to eating whatever and put on another 10 lbs.

Time to get it off, and some more!

I gained 35 lbs and lost 17 lbs within the first week. The scale would not move after that, even with exercise...I joined Sparkpeople and am pleased to say that 3 and a half months after joining I have lost the last of the baby weight and then some, I have lost 21 lbs!! I owe Sparkpeople and Jillian Micheals big time - Her 30 Day Shred workout DVD's are AMAZING :) - Good luck with that last 10 lbs, stick with Sparkpeople and it will be gone before you know it!!

I use Earth Mama Angel Baby's c-section healing salve. It works on scars, stretch marks, or any skin weirdness. But it's not cheap! O_O My scar and stretch marks are a lot less red now, but I can still feel them. Yuck.

I agree! My dr told me to buy the maderma stretch mark therapy for my stretch marks and that it will help them deminish and they won't be so deep. He said you will still be able to see them if you look closely but that they will be closer to your skin color so they aren't very noticable if at all! That being said...I can't find the stuff lol! I found maderma scar cream but not for stretch marks yet.

Yeah that's the part that's bothering me the most is all this jiggle! Like not even so much that I have stretch marks so bad that I look like a grizzly bear tried to tear it's way in or the fact that I'm 29 pounds heavier than before I was pregnant but this loose jiggly skin makes me sick to my stomach and I hate it. (altho my son was so worth it)

I gained about 50 pounds during pregnancy. I was surprised that I gained that much because all I craved was vegetables! I lost 20 when he was born, but then I gained 5-10 back during breastfeeding. Yea, I thought breastfeeding was supposed to help you lose. Well, not if you inhale ice cream like the freezer has just died. emoticon
I guess I was making up for the ice cream aversion during pregnancy.

Right now, I'm about 30 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but I've still got 70 to lose after that in order to get to my "ideal" weight. Though I'm not sure it's really my ideal weight anymore. Everything is so jiggly now. I honestly don't care what I weigh, as long as I can tone up and get rid of all this jiggle!

I gained 43 pounds during my pregnancy and lost 25 just within the 1 week of having him but then I gained 13 pounds of it back and now I lost 4 of those pounds so I still need to drop 29 pounds. I dont have much time for exercise and I'm an EXTREMELY picky eater so eating healthy is hard for me. But I am BOUND AND DETERMINED to lose this weight before summer comes around!

I gained 44lbs. I lost 25lbs within the first 2 weeks postpartum. Now I still need to lose 20 lbs and then I'd like to lose an additional 15. I'm dreading going back to work b/c nothing fits, top or bottom b/t my weight gain and my big lactating boobs.

I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant and have now lost 50 pounds. But I'm terribly out of shape. No tone and my endurance is down. I did not work out the first trimester and only did cardio the second and third trimesters. Since he has been born, I've only done cardio sporadically. I feel very jiggly :) I want my strength, tone, and endurance back! Got to get back on that wagon, and stop eating sweets every day.

I will get back on that wagon consistently when I finish my Masters program in May.

From my first prenatal appt to my last one right before my baby was born I LOST 20 pounds. Then I lost another 10 between delivery and post partum, and I have since lost another 10. So I have lost 40 pounds total in almost exactly a year. I still need to lose a bunch though.

I gained 29 pounds with my first- the doctor told me that she only wanted me to gain 17 lbs total because I was so overweight (I wore a size 12 or 14). I thought that it was a little harsh. My daughter is 15 months now and I'm just getting motivated to losing the last 8 lbs from the pregnancy. After that I want to keep going so that I gain have a healthy happy second pregnancy without being afraid of gaining too much.

I was 135 before I became pregnant and the day before I delivered I measured at 202!! HA! so something like 70lbs I gained. I was a health nut before I became pregnant and never ate any junk. But once those cravings started I couldn't stop myself. I still have 35 pounds to lose and she'll be 3 months old next week. ugh

I gained 35 pounds with my daughter. I was sick for the first few months and then I ate everything in site. I used to eat the same way and then I ended up at 160. I stopped working out once I got pregnant because of my morning sickness. I am not going to do this when I get pregnant again. My daughter is 14 months old and I still have 16 more pounds to loose to get back to 135. I am hoping to go from 152 to 145 in the next 6 months.

I gained 25 pounds. I exercised and ate right during the pregnancy. My son is now 9 months old and I am about 5 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. However, all of my weight was gained in my stomach, so I will have to loose another about 20-30 pounds just to get rid of the pooch. emoticon

My #1 is 6months now, and I gained 64lbs with him. Have lost all but 10 now, but they are S-l-o-w in coming off now! Totally lost a lot of muscle too, so that's my current focus - may gain a little in the short run, but what's left behind is quite in need of toning up :)

I gained 50lbs. I have lost 16lbs since giving birth. This is my 2nd child and everyone keeps telling me that usually it's harder to lose. I don't know but I do keep telling myself it took me 9 months to put it on so it's going to take 9 months to take it off.

I gained a total of 25 lbs during pregnancy, which I have already lost. But I gained 30 lbs while trying to get pregnant for a year. The baby weight pretty much went away on it's own for me, but the other weight is really hard to get off.

I started gaining weight before I became pregnant - For years I held steady at 130, but right when I found out I was at 155. Then the day my daughter was born I weighed 216. I gained upwards of 70 pregnancy related pounds, and lost 36 close to immediately. Now I'm back to 183, and I want to return to the 130 range again!

I gained 22 and lost 14. I had been maintaining for years before pregnancy.

I don't own a scale at home but my ideal happy weight is 110-115. When I weighed myself a week ago at the gym, I was 120.

I am a mother of a 3 year old and a 8 month old. I gained 30lbs with my first child and 25 with my second. I am about 32 lbs over what I weighed before I had kids. I hope to go back to my prepregnancy weight or lose more. I work full time and pretty much have no time to exercise. I have lost some weight just by counting my calories and eating smaller meals. Im hoping this plan will work!!!

I have about 9 lbs left to go before pre-baby weight. I gained 42 lbs during my pregnancy and my baby was born a month early because I had pre-eclampsia. I still had high blood pressure afterwards so I was on bed rest for a little while. I was(am still) breastfeeding and it just made me hungry all the time, so I ate all the time :) ugh! I have heard both sides that it does and doesn't help. I think it is helping a little now that I am not doing it as much, and I am really watching what I eat, but I do not think I am making much milk anymore. For me breatfeeding and getting no sleep with a newborn baby just made me want to eat for energy.

I was determined not to gain too much with this last pregnancy... until I found out I was having twins. I started at 190 and was 268 when I delivered. I was 230 at my 6 week follow up and I am 208 now. The twins are almost 7 months and I want to get back to 190 AT LEAST before they turn 1!

I gained 42 pounds with my pregnancy. I lost 26 a week after delivery but have 15 pounds left to go and 30 total until I'm my pre-pre-pre-pregnancy weight (I got a little out of the loop with exercise and eating healthy before I actually found out I was pregnant!). Good luck to everyone! My little girl will be a month old on the 15th.

Oh, goodness. I started my pregnancy at 229 (which was after losing 30 pounds to begin with) And on the day I delivered I was 275. Two weeks after, I was down to 253, but over the holidays and due to my lack of control, I ballooned back up to 270. So dissapointing! But now I'm down to 263 and feeling much better about my eating habits :)

Well with this last pregnancy I was around 200 to begin with and then with him I gained around 50 to 60 lbs and then when I had him i dropped about 30 lbs and then with in a few months I was right back were I started at. When I was pregnant everyone kept saying that they didn't know I was pregnant. And I kept thinking to myself are you serious because I could tell I was huge. But I guess to everyone else they just thought I was fat or something. Who knows.
