My son is 2 weeks old. I know some of the weight was from him. But I lost a total so far of 21 pounds. Have you ever been shocked by your weight when you went to the doctor? In either direction? I sure was.

Congrats on losing that much baby weight already! I try to avoid paying attention to my weight at the doctors.

Me too. Usually I refer to the scale as the evil monster.

I was definitely surprised when the doctor congratulated me on losing 5 pounds. I was like "I did?? How'd that happen??" lol

My weight has been pretty stable since after the twins were born. I've only ever fluctuated 10 pounds in either direction. Sadly, I didn't even gain any weight for the youngest 2 boys. And didn't lose any after they were born either.

I guess you also nursed him and that makes a lot of difference. When I had my daughter that I gave up for adoption, I only lost the weight from the baby, the other weight I gained to maintained my pregnancy stayed. And that would have meant I would have to keep walking the whole 24 hours a day and not get sleep in order to lose any. I am losing a little now but that is because I have diabetes and my weight is coming out because the pills I get are burning off the sugar.
