Losing Weight After Baby Mumsnet
I didn't have a section but i too lost all my baby weight a few months after birth and still had loose flabby wobbly skin on my tummy. it did seem to tighten back up after a while, so hopefully yours will too. hopefully someone with section experience will be along soon to give their advice.. Breastfeeding helps drop weight quick. just take your baby out for walks. eat healthy and even use your baby to exercise with. they love to be apart what mama is doing. drink mummy magic tea three times daly before your meals. it also helped me when i was in the same boat.. 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 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.. Title explains, i am unsure if i have an eating disorder or not.the debate has come up with my husband several times a day for a while now.will expla. 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..
