    Hi..I gave birth last month and todate, am still carrying most of my pregnancy weight! Lost about 7kg over the month; and still have about/> 10kg to go.

    yup.. you are normal..
    i put on 17kg and lost only 7kg after birth.. confinement period ate good food hence no weight loss.. lost the remaning 10kg by the end of second month.. think main reason was breastfeeding + taking care of bb alone after confinement.. malay massage helped a little with my flabby tummy (looked like 5 months preggie after delivery)..
    HTH :)

    I lost about 6kg after give birth.

    My gain about 15kg when I am pregnant.

    After confinement period, every month my weight loss 1-2kg and until today my weight go back to pre-preggy.

    I think one of the reason is I am breasfeeding mummies (pump).

    As mention by one of the mummies, just take healty food is ok liao..

    I put on 15 kgm. I lost quite a bit during confinement, I still have abt 2.5 kgm to go. Hopefully before my baby turn 6 months old I can go back to pre preg or even slimmer.

    Its kind of impossible to lose all the weight gained during pregnancy. If u can lose half its not bad already.

    i think its depends on individual and also age plays a part. If you are a young mummy, not a problem to back back pre-preggie size within a short period of time.

    Yes i do agree that not many mummies can lose all the fats that they gain during pregnancy and regain the shape. I have come acrosss many who have done so thru the TRA programme, which help them to lose the fats.
    U can check them out in the TRA Testimonials (1) on Vimeo
    look out for 0.04mins, 0.36, 1.17, 1.41, 2.28, the mothers that i ahve know personally

    exercise is good.

    if you're back at work, take the baby out for a walk around the neighborhood in the evening. relax the mind and body as well.

    i think loosing weight after giving birth depends on each individual. for me, i just work, exercise and eat regularly. but of course, after my confinement, i went on a feast, eating all the food that i couldn't have and thus resulting in additional weight gain and feeling bloated everytime. then i'll just drink chinese tea or fruitylite to relieve that feeling and go for a slow walk/jog sometimes.

    it may not seem much but it helps for the long run.

    Well I also agree that Its depends on individual and also age plays a part. If you are a young mummy, not a problem to back back pre-preggie size within a short period of time. So you can do light exercise and also take diet food after few days.

    Hi Babes,

    I did postnatal yoga & lost the pounds the I gained during my pregnancy. And after my second boy, I did the same & lost more than what I weighed before my 2nd pregnancy. I guess yoga is really beneficial to one's health as I felt alot more alive aftereach lesson & helps to gain back my confidence level. You guys may want to check out Yoga.
