How much weight did you lose in the week following the birth of your baby?

Well, I only gained 9 pounds by the end of my pregnancy and dropped weight like crazy for the first 8 weeks or so post-partum. I'm not sure how much I lost the first week, but at my 6-week appt I had lost 25 pounds.

Ok I started out at 255 and lost 12 pounds the first trimester.. And never really gained it back.. So the day before I had Trinity I weighed in at 238... The day after I had her I weighed 229.. And today (10days later) I weigh in at 221.5

I gained 20.5 pounds when pregnant and now I'm down 27 pounds and I'm 2 weeks post partum. I couldn't believe how much I lost. My tummy definitley isn't what it used to be, but I plan to start working out in the next 2 weeks after my 6 week checkup.

Hi ladies I dont really post much but I saw this and wanted to put in my two cents if y'all dont mind any ways when I got preggo I weighed aprrox. 250lbs give or take a few pounds. at the last Drs appt which was the same day I went to the hospital I weighted about 297 at 6 weeks pp I lost 57 lbs. I weighed less then I did when I got preggo.......then I went back up to 250 and now my DD is 5 months and I am 241 today. I just started counting calories and exercising 2 weeks ago and lost 7 pounds . Good luck to you.
