I'm one of the lucky ones. Within a week postpartum I was back in my pre-preg clothes (I think I weigh less now than before my pregnancy based on how my clothes fit). No stretchmarks, no nothing. The only things that changed is bigger boobs (awesome when you consider I was a small A before) and somehow freckles everywhere on my belly and breasts (they appeared during pregnancy).

I still have 35 pounds to lose to get to my pre preg weight. My boobs are a cup size bigger but that could be from the excess weight. I just recently started walking and exercising more. I have lost 43 pounds since having Mason so cutting my portions after having him is definitely helping. Now if I can find time to exercise 6 data a week I'll be back to my pre preg size by his first birthday.
Thank you Claire1979!

I'm fine with it. I have another 20lb to lose to my goal weight (10lb to pre-preg), and my boobs are obnoxiously large (keeping me from wearing some shirts), but I'm happy with where I am. I know the rest will come with a bit more time.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

I actually weigh quite a bit less than before I got pregnant with Haevyn but I still want to lose quite a bit more to get to where my "healthy and happy" weight is.

I really am having a hard time figuring out just HOW my hips widened again after my third baby. I don't think they did after number 2 and Haevyn was loads smaller lol but sure enough, they did. So I've lost 46lbs since having Haevyn, I only gained like 23lbs total with her pregnancy and I'm only down ONE pant size. grr! My boobs are also ridiculously large and while my husband finds this to be a fantastic plus, I'm not jumping on that bandwagon of agreeing just yet lol

I am under my pre preggo weight now and I was happy with my pre preggo weight, that was my goal. So now my goal is just to maintain this weight. I could lose 5 more pound and still be happy but no more. What I really want to do is work on toning my stomach and arms. When I'm done breast feeding I want a boob lift! But it would be after our 2nd kid cause we want 2.

I have 20lbs to loose to get to pre-preggo weight. I've lost 22lb currently. Once I get to pre preggo weight I have a further 63lb to loose.
