I've lost about 33 lbs total, but have been stuck at that for about a month. My total gain was 60 lbs (130 lbs pre-pregnancy) so, on one hand, I'm over half-way done! But on the other, I really seem to have plateaued. As frustrating as I find it, I try to focus on the positive: I'm tall so the weight is spread out well and isn't obvious; I don't need to lose the entire 27 lbs to be happy, since I was very thin before pregnancy; my stomach and waist are the worst areas for me, personally, so while that's depressing, i'm happy that my arms, legs, and hips (and boobs! hah!) are doing ok.

Tummy is definitely not where I'd like it to be-- fairly flat when standing but still so soft and squishy when I sit. Plus, the stretch marks. Sigh.

But as much as I complain, I'm not super proactive in getting the weight off, so I'm really not too concerned about it yet. I have a good diet and get some exercise in, and once we move and get a little settled I can get back into a routine.
