Losing Weight After Baby Mumsnet
Weight loss stall after baby. lunch is usually a big salad with fish and good fats. i home cook dinner 99% of the time. lots of meat, vegetables etc. i do have a few bikkies here and there, maybe a bag of chips once a week. workouts, i'll do 40min of weight training 2x a week. 1-2x a week 45min power walk with buggy.. After dc1 i lost all but 7lbs after about 6 months without much effort, same story again with dc2, but now a stone heavier than i started. after dc3 my weight stopped going down when i was 2 stone heavier than pre pregnancy weight so 3 stone to lose in total . for some reason after dc3 it didn't go away on it's own like it had before, was bf all 3.. I want to lose another stone and get to a healthy bmi. 2 things work for me: myfitnesspal and exercise. i can only eat about 10% of what myfitness pal allows me for exercise though..
I would say your weight loss sounds ok. i was about 10.8 stone prior to first baby, 12.4 after birth and i remember looking quite trim on her 1st birthday so was prob back to original weight. i did loads of long walks daily, for miles, and ate well in the first year whilst on maternity leave. i think mums can be quite active in the first year.. I then became pregnant that month & over the course of the pregnancy put that weight back on (plus a bit more). i wasn't too concerned about this as i intended to start sw again some time after the birth. my baby is now 10 weeks old (emcs-don't know if relevant to postpartum weight loss). i have been following sw for 3 weeks & have only lost 1lb.. I blame myself for my fatness, but am annoyed at my mw too as one of them told me that i wasnt eating enough and so my baby was losing weight (turned out she was jaundiced instead but i started to overeat as i felt like i was an awful mum) does anyone have any meal plans etc to lose the weight..
