Quoting Bop *LPC*:" with my last baby? I gained 44lbs but was already big to begin with. Right before I delivered him I ... [snip!] ... him I was 214, at my 6 week check-up I was 198, and now I am weighing in around 122-125lbs. So I lost around 89-92lbs "
Something similar happened to me. I was 124 before any babies, got pregnant gained 75, lost 45, was starting to lose weight when i was 155, got pregnant, went up to 226, lost 45, and now im stuck at 180. Im hoping to get back down to 124. I hope my tummy tones up, but im thinking it will probably look similar to yours. Have you ever thought about laser tightening? I think im going to look into that when im at my ideal weight.
Good luck on your surgery!!
