So I gained 5 pounds with my preg and really, REALLY want it gone so I can get back to feeling normal and so that I'm not toting around extra weight if I'm blessed to get preg again in the coming months. It's been over a week since my D&C and I've really been watching what I eat and working out for the last few days (since the bleeding stopped) and the scale hasn't budged at all, not even half a pound! What gives? Is it normal for your body to hold onto the weight initially? How long did it take your body to start losing?
Ever since I had my first son my weight has been stubborn! I used to be able to just watch what I ate for a week or so, exercise more, and then I'd see fast results on the scale. Now it takes FOREVER...if I even see any results at all. I gave up trying to lose weight! More because it was too much for me emotionally. I really would like to lose weight, though, like you, to be at a healthy weight before I get pregnant again. Sorry I can't be more encouraging!
I actually talked to my doctor about this because I cannot lose the weight. I have PCOS which is part of my problem but the doctor also said it's due to the hormones. When your hormones are fluctuating it's very hard to lose weight
