i read an article in a family magazine...studies show that woman will most likely keep on the pregnancy pounds if it isn't lost by the first year postpartum. so basically, if you don't lose all your pregnancy weight within the first year after having the baby, you will probably keep on some extra poundage for at least 15 years.

some studies were done, and it was found that it didn't matter how much you weighed before pregnancy, how much you gained during pregnancy, or if you ever had weight problems before....it just mattered how fast you get working on getting off the pounds AFTER the baby.

the article made a good point of saying that sometimes the reason for not getting the pounds off so quickly postpartum is because it's hard to jump right back into healthier "eating for one" habits. so this is why it is PUSHED to stay eating healthy and ONLY your 300 extra calories needed DURING pregnancy....

i just found this interesting. i wouldn't rely solely on these studies, but the article had some great points and basically said get your AZZ in gear after having the baby and eat healthy, take care of yourself...
