Shifting those extra pounds

edited July 2016 in Pregnancy
Did you worry about gaining weight during pregnancy?
How much did you gain and have you lost those extra pounds again?
If so how long did that take you and how did you do it?

I was not really worried gaining any weight. Which is the reason I did gain quite a lot I think, 3stone and 4, 3 pounds to be exact. After giving birth I did not really bother starting a diet straight away but because of the new routines and the fact that I had less time on my hands I lost I lost 1 stone 13, 5 pounds in the first 6 month. Now, after almost 8 month I have finally started a diet to lose the extra pound I still have and so far I have lost another 11 pounds which means I need to lose another 7, 7 pounds to be where I was before the pregnancy. I am not really on a strict diet as I do not believe that is sustainable in the long run so I am just watching what and how much I eat and stay away from sugar.



  • I'm not worried much about losing the weight. I will just try to be active with my baby, going on walks and to park outings, as well as modeling healthy eating for my baby and breastfeeding for as long as I can.

    With a few healthy habits everything should stay balanced. I haven't seen anyone unable to get back into shape, unless they develop unhealthy habits, like eating a lot of packaged snacks and sweets, or never going out to walk, play or be active.
  • For me it was different with each of my babies but I never gained much. It was between 7-9 kgs. I also lost the weight less fast each time, with it being about 8-9 months with my last baby and with this current baby I haven't lost anything so it will probably be 10-12 months before I lose it all.
