  • Did you exercise after the birth to lose the baby weight?

    I have never bothered, my exercise is running from one end of the house all day doing housework and chasing kids.
    Plus it has never bothered me if I put on a few kilos........and DH would still love me regardless of if I was 40kg or 90kg.

    Im one of those "lucky" ones who dropped the weight within 3 weeks of giving birth and had a flat stomach within that time too...it would have been great to stop there but I have gone on to lose 10kg more, and I didnt need to lose any to begin with

    I dont excercise which is naughty I know, but I just got myself a gym ball to try and build some muscle tone.

      yay, im not alone, lol.

      i usually lose it all within 2-3mths, but can't losee the jelly belly as i always lose the first 10kg too quickly (when i give birth, lol).

            so i say lucky you for not needing to exercise, im hoping it might fall of this time round

              I only gain weight in my belly when preggers so regardless of exercise I don't really have to lose weight after havings bubs.

              But i like to exercise 5 - 6 days a week to be toned and for health. Makes me feel good and gives me good energy.

                I said No but looking after 3 boys 24/7 I consider exercise and luckily for me breastfeeding helps me lose weight quite easily.

                I still have about 6kgs to go before I am back to my pre-birth weight but I would like to lose another 15kgs all together.

                    just clarifying, with ds it 'came off' because i was not eating or sleeping and was stressed majorly, what with him in SCN for 2 weeks and all his problems.

                        With DS I lost it straight away and had a Flat Stomach, I was VERY lucky!

                        Although with DD i'm struggling a bit. I've lost weight, but cant loose the belly

                            Nope! I am such a lazy person. I put on 18kg and luckily it just fell off. I ate sooooo much while i was pregnant. Seriously, i was such a pig. So i think the fact that i totally lost my appetite for huge meals had a lot to do with my weightloss lol.

                            I've been stuck on not losing the last 5kg, but it doesn't bother me if it never comes off. The only thing i do need to lose is my belly... I've given myself until this September to do it, so

                              Computer says no.

                              Spose that's why I still have some baby weight.
