    It was easy after my first, and I was back to pre-pregnancy weight after 2 months! My last I had in Feb and gained 40lbs! The first 20 came of the first coue of weeks! The next 20 took about 3 months to get off! I still need to tone up some, but can fit into size 6 again!

    The easiest was after my 3rd kid. But once I hit 27 weight came I can't get rid of so idk. I still have a normal bmi & physically fit but not as slim as I used to be.

    The easiest for me was with my fourth/ youngest child. I lost the 50 pounds I gained in just 8 weeks , just from breast feeding! I remember because I had lost it all by my postpartum checkup with my OB/GYN. With the first three it took about a year to lose the 50 pounds and I had to eat right and exercise.

    (I gained 45 - 50 pounds, and had 9 pound babies).

    When I was pregnant everyone said I was "all baby" and I breastfed pretty much exclusively for the first 6 months. She had a few bottles of my milk and formula maybe once or twice. Thankfully I dropped the weight pretty quick but I'm not toned at all anymore.

    Congratulations to everyone on their beautiful babies and for losing weight!

    I didn't try too hard til I was done BFing then I jumped it into gear. Actually got to my wedding weight! I started with a juice cleanse and then replaced one meal every day with a fresh juice (mostly veggie). of course i worked out, too. feels great! i think i'm even in better shape than i was before the babies.

    I can't lose my belly fat :(    I had three children in 40 months, by c-sections and I can't seem to lose it.  I am eating healthier and walking a lot more...it seems like it is just getting bigger :(

    I bf and the weight dropped but when I stopped I gained it. I had to find an activity to maintain my weight. The older I got, new things came into place.
