I gained 21 pounds during my pregnancy. By 6 weeks postpartum, I was wearing pants I hadn't worn since long before baby. I had already lost the baby weight and then some. When Baby Fix-It was 12 weeks old I was down about 35 pounds from the day before I gave birth.


Having babies and breastfeeding? Surely a magical weight loss plan.

Except it wasn't.

The real weight loss was due to this:



 As a result of the colic-like scream fest for 14 straight weeks (Mr. Fix-It refuses to label our baby as colicky) I was in motion at all times. If Baby Fix-It wasn't eating or sleeping he was screaming. All I did was move, move, move. And I thought those pounds had just melted away. Ha!

Now, times have changed. A switch flipped. Baby Fix-It is calm. Smiley. Content. He's, dare I say it?, easy. I have found time to eat a meal. Or two. Or enough to regain that magically lost weight. We still go for walks, and move, but it's not the same. I'm not walking to save my sanity. Often it's easier to sit on the floor and play with toys and read books. Which is awesome. Except for my pants getting tight.

So now it's time to really lose the baby weight. And then some. Again.

ETA: I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight exactly. I'm working to get back to - and past - the magical postpartum size.

  1. I am the exact same. I actually lose weight while pregnant, end up losing more those first months due to the crazy newborn schedule. Then a flip switches and no matter what I do I can't lose weight (without drastically effecting my milk supply)

  3. I can so relate!! I gained 28 pounds and had lost all of that within 3 weeks because of how colicky/crazy Cooper was. I refused to admit to colic but looking back... he totally had it. Thankfully Cooper still likes to nurser quite frequently so the weight is staying off! Good luck, you've got this! :)

  16. But it's unclear whether consumers who recently bought HDTVs and next-generation DVD players will be
    willing to fork out again soon for new equipment. Like the other free-to-play Electronic Arts titles, FIFA Online
    possesses an in-game store, where players can spend real-world cash or currency earned within the
    game on various items, outfits and ability boosts. The green squares are
    on and you have to figure out how to turn them all to blue squares.
