My pre pregnancy weight with my first was 160, I only gained about 8 lbs while pregnant with him. 3 months after I had him I lost a little over 30lbs from my pre pregnancy weight. I was VERY excited. I knew I was breast feeding for some reason lol. I got pregnant again after that and lost the baby and got depressed and gained all that weight back and some. Well I just had son 2 weeks ago. I was 187 before I got pregnant and right before I delivered I was 198. I just weighed myself and I'm already down to 170! I'm VERY pleased with that. Now to loose 30 more and I'll be back to where I felt comfortable! I felt like that was a good weight for me, even though I'm 5ft.
