Common Questions and Answers about Losing pregnancy weight quickly


Avatar f tn Any good tips that help you get the weight off quickly after pregnancy? Besides the obvious .. Eating healthy and working out lol ...
Avatar f tn Happened to my mom in her third pregnancy, my sister was healthy and healthy weight, but did deliver early and quickly. They managed to get to the hospital but my sister was born in the hallway at the hospital because they didn't have time to get her to l&d lol. Good luck!!
11100381 tn?1436783508 Granted I was 50lbs overweight to start, but I don't know if losing weight like this, bout 2-3lbs a week, is healthy while I'm pregnant. I feel sick all the time, and I can barely get around my own home. I try to go for a short walk or a trip for some groceries, and I nearly end up both vomiting and passing out. I don't know what to do at this point. My insurance is down because of technical difficulties, so I can't see a doctor. Some just say to wait for the 2nd trimester.
542730 tn?1234677438 Hi, I wanted to let you know that diets don't work, u will just regain the weight and more at some point, u need to change the way u eat for life, u don't need to give up all the yummies either a treat once a week isnot going to hinder any weight loss, weight watchers , Inches they are great places and resources to go to , they may feel likle there expensive , but I am telling u they work, I have a friend who weight watchers got her to her goal and then some and she has stayed that way for years
6520484 tn?1399085998 But I still have 20lbs of fat that I put on during the pregnancy. Just wondering if anyone had success in losing the baby weight? I could use some pointers. I already eat healthy and all I drink is water and milk, no juice or pop or anything. I'm too tired to exercise (with Two week old baby and all). Anyone do anything to lose the weight that really worked?
Avatar f tn Honestly, I'm more healthy now than before the pregnancy. I've stayed in the normal range of weight gain and developed better habits. I plan to breastfeed and keep walking and eating well to lose the weight. Also I hear you don't have as much time to eat, so I think it will just happen. I was trying to lose weight before the pregnancy with paleo.
2188958 tn?1346448491 I think that was the key to me losing weight, bc as soon as I stopped nursing gained the weight back. My second it took about 6 months to get to my pre-pregnancy weight, and again I stayed skinny until I stopped breastfeeding, then I gained about 15 lbs. With this pregnancy I am much older, and I have gained so much weight already that I doubt I will lose it all very quickly, if at all :/ I plan to work out if I can this time.
Avatar f tn I was wondering for people who are already mothers, what was your pre pregnancy weight ? how much weight did all of you gain during pregnancy? How much of it did you lose after the baby ?
Avatar f tn just wondering if losing weight would stop me from getting a baby belly? Or if ill still get a baby belly despite losing weight?
Avatar f tn The reason you may be losing weight is that pregnancy speeds up your metabolism cause your body is working hard making that little human being :)
Avatar f tn My first pregnancy I lost 20 lbs and then started gaining it back around 7 months, I ended my pregnancy only +2 from my pregnancy weight. This pregnancy, I'm 13 weeks and I've lost 15 lbs so far. (No complaints here, I don't mind at all!
Avatar f tn ) Like you all, I've been struggling with weight gain due to methadone and although I am finally tappered down from 120mgs to 45mgs, I'm doing it VERY slowly so I'd like to start losing weight now rather than weight until I am completely off the 'done. So far, I have lost 7lbs in 5 days..Here goes for those interested: Using HCG for weight loss You cannot buy hcg in stores, if you see it at Walmart, it's NOT real hcg and you will waste your money.
Avatar f tn Not sure about pregnancy weight ftm.
10743983 tn?1440213810 My mom is this tiny thing and said she gained about 60lb during her pregnancy, and lost it really quickly. Hope the same will happen to me. I trying not to worry much, because it takes some pleasure away from enjoying my bump.
Avatar f tn I actually got fussed out by the nutritionist for losing weight and then being only back at my original weight but she's crazy. Doc says baby is healthy so no need to worry.
1266083 tn?1358567662 Is that normal? I mean, I know I'm overweight but only 15 lbs. She said it's good that I've been losing weight and eating healthier. She says that the foods I eat are coming to my body (even if I'm not eating a lot) and that my "fat stores" and nutrients are going to the baby. I asked her if I was getting any nutrients and she said "yes, some. But the baby gets it off of you. Once it has been used for you, it goes to the baby." Does that make sense?
Avatar m tn I have a question about losing weight post pregnancy, I'm 5'4", I was 140, 10-15 lbs more than I wanted to be when I got pregnant. I gained 40 lbs during pregnancy and went down to 155 by the time I went back to work (about 5wks pp). I am a bartender at a pretty busy place, so I thought that would be enough exercise to start with after having a c section. I thought I would lose at least a few lbs doing the bartending thing and I completely changed my diet.
1222635 tn?1366399886 Our bodies change considerably during pregnancy. Just like with this pregnancy. I started out at the same exact weight that I started my LAST pregnancy, I've actually gained LESS weight thus far but a lot of the maternity clothes I wore with my last one are too tight now. Just be thankful you fit into your pre-preg clothes so fast.
1355431 tn?1369978906 I am really worried because I am already the unhealthy weight of 196 before pregnancy. I am 8 wekks now. My doctor said I should gain around 20lbs. To be that seems like alot since Im already so over weight. What do you think?
15480 tn?1302533402 I've gained almost 25 pounds and I'm only 27 weeks. It really sucks because with this pregnancy I have been careful about what I eat and the weight is still piling on like in my first pregnancy (I gained 65 pounds) Sometimes your body decides to get fat and you don't have complete control over it.
443968 tn?1288616289 My husband got this new work out called P90X not sure if any of you heard of it but I was stuck at about 160 and I started that that and instantly started losing the weight. I got down to between 145-150 (145 is preg weight) but I have stopped so I haven't lost anymore weight. My issue is my belly still looks at least 2 months pregnant. What can I do to work on that and I do want to lose more weight I want to get back to the weight I was when I got married (135lbs).
1343283 tn?1300901864 I have been eating well and going to the gym, so I cant figure out why im gaining so much weight so quickly. In the back of my mind i keep thinking about multiples :D. my sister in law had twins and before she had her ultrasound, they were suspecting she had multiples because of how much weight she gained so quickly. I;m trying not to think about having twins or anything.
Avatar n tn Since then I have been biking off 500+ calories a DAY - per the digital readout on my bike. My problem - I'm not losing ANY weight...I've gained 2 pounds!!! I did notice that my pants fit better and that I'm looking leaner but I still want to get back to 145 not bulk up with muscle! How do I get back to losing weight WHILE getting in more exercise?
349463 tn?1333575176 Well as far as losing the weight I always get mad when I hear women say it was from breastfeeding because if you bf you have to still eat the extra calories every day for the baby. For me it was light exercise and cutting out all sweets while bf'ing then hitting the gym hard as soon as I stopped nursing. I ended up 10 pounds lower than my pre-pregnancy weight before I got pregnant again this time. Too bad even my starting weight is about 20lbs over my ideal weight.
Avatar f tn I'm 30 weeks pregnant, and still losing weight. I've lost 18 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight due to sickness. & was not over weight to start with. My Dr isn't worried as the baby is measuring right on. I'm high risk and have a ultrasound twice a week along with no stress test twice a week for other reasons (GD) . But baby is great!
Avatar f tn I had the same problem i bought maternity pants at 7 weeks because i gained 20 lbs. I was eating cupcakes and fast all the time. And then i started eating at least one salad a day that has dark leafy greens like spinach (lettuce doesn't do anything for you its just water) i go on a ten minute walk everyday. I still eat what im craving but eat salads and fruots also really helps.i lost ten lbs and im maintaining the weight i have now.
