i gained close to fifty lbs and have lost 30. I gained 50 with DD too and lost it all by 3 months. I guess I just gain a lot preggo. I though I was being more healthy this time but I have a big healthy boy so i will just bust my rump to lose it. lol How about you ladies??
I am already back to my pre pregnancy weight - I lost all 23 lbs! My pre pregnancy weight was alittle high for my taste ( I did not loose it after my miscarriage before) and so I am still hoping to loose 5 or10 more lbs with breastfeeding and exercise.

I've lost 12 lbs so far...I'm 2 wks PP. I came from the hospital only -1 lbs. ***?? Must have been the fluids they gave me during my stay. Although it didn't seem like a ton maybe 2L total? Plus I didn't appear swollen anywhere, so not sure where the extra lbs came from.
I gained 29lbs pregnant (I teased that I refused to hit that 30 mark because it held on at 29lbs for at least 5 weeks at the end!).
I have lost 25 of that 29. But I also started a little "fluffy," so I would love to lose an additional 15lbs on top of the rest of what I have left. But I am about to post a thread on why that might not be possible (cravings for BAD things! Lol).
Like bittersweet, I also did not lose much of anything in the hospital. I gave birth to an 8lb baby and only lost 9lbs? I also had polyhydro...too much amniotic fluid. I too wondered how that could possibly happen (considering the baby and all the fluid came out!). But I guess it is just fluid being retained.
I've lost 18lbs. I only gained 11 so I'm -7 from pre-pregnancy weight. I lost the initial 11 before leaving the hospital. But I'm a bigger girl to begin with and was still carrying some from my first pregnancy. I'd like to lose 70-80lbs to be at my goal weight..quite a ways to go.
glad i am not the only one who left the hospital barely losing any weight! i delivered on tuesday and was weighed on friday and had only lost like 8 pds and had a 7pd 9oz baby! adding in the placenta and fluid, how is that even possible?! i am 1 week pp today and my stomache seems to be quiet a bit smaller than friday, but i don't have a scale at home. i gained wayyyy more than i wanted to so hoping it comes off!
