You know how everyone tells stories about how they lost ‘a stone in the 24 hours after delivery,‘? Reading this back, I just realised I’ve talked almost exclusively about my weight, rather than my shape. As I write, with Bea approaching 13 months I’m 5lbs heavier than I was at conception, having done absolutely nothing to shift any weight.
Right now I’d love to hear your thoughts on your body post baby – what has changed and how do you feel about it? Between caring for Q and finding time to do everything else, losing weight just hasn’t been a top priority. Ok, so even though losing weight hasn’t been my main focus recently, getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight is definitely something I want to achieve in the next few months, which is why I want to blog about my experience. I’m not a big numbers person when it comes to weight (here’s why), but I do think they are helpful when it comes to tracking your progress.
As you can see, the baby weight came off quickly (20 pounds in one week), but it has slowed down considerably (2 pounds in one month). The photos below were taken approximately 2 weeks, 1 month, and 2 months postpartum, respectively. Initially, I noticed some overall weakness in my strength, especially my lower body (“Bambi legs”), but my cardio hasn’t seemed to suffer too much. As I mentioned above, I would really like to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, so I decided to set some goals for myself to keep in mind over the next month or so. The weight came off pretty easily for me too, but yes, the strength thing takes some time, but obv with hard work (which you do) it’ll be back in no time. I remember people telling me it took nine months to put the weight on and it will take many months to get off. Ilana, my daughter is almost 8 months now, but I had quite a bit of back pain (and ligament pain in general) the first few months postpartum. La alimentacion de las personas afecta a todo el organismo desde las hormonas hasta la sangre. And honestly, it’s still changing, but I feel I can write this from a position of reasonable experience and with a realistic outlook. Sure, I’m exercising on a regular basis, but it’s more for my own personal happiness and sanity than it is for weight loss. I need the motivation and accountability, especially since the last few pounds are always the hardest to lose.
I’m about 7-10 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, and I know those pounds will be the hardest to lose.
I exercised all 41 weeks of my pregnancy and then returned to light exercise (power walking and body weight strength training) at 3 weeks postpartum and then ramped it up with CrossFit and running at 5 weeks postpartum. I’m definitely not back to my pre-pregnancy fitness level, but I’m feeling really good—better than expected! I hope you guys found this post interesting, and if there is anything you would like to see in next month’s update, please leave a comment and let me know!


I don’t know why but I find it so interesting how working out while pregnant seems to affect how easily you lose the weight afterward! I never focused on the weight numbers, especially because I knew some of the loss was muscle (booooo!), but knowing my clothes fit better & I felt strong was a great way to measure my progress. It is GOOD to give yourself that time, endorphins, and energy by working out when you’re a new mom.
I feel like I’ve always been scared of pregnancy in the sense that I have no idea how my body will react, but I think you had a great point that since you stayed so active your whole pregnancy, you will didn’t lose much cardio!
I am 30 weeks pregnant with twin boys, so your pregnancy journey has helped me tremendously, and your post-preggo weight loss journey could not have come at a better time! It’s awesome that you have been able to work out again consistently too – I imagine those endorphins are needed with all the crazy schedule changes! You look really amazing and I think it really emphasizes how discipline during your pregnancy can help you bounce back really fast without having to do anything crazy after. Before I start, please don’t anyone take any of this as a reflection or judgement on their body or decisions regarding it.
It was the heaviest I have ever been and ironically I feel I got there because I was planning to get pregnant.
However, normal and healthy weight gain in pregnancy is 1 and a half to 2 and a half stone and watching my weight creep slowly up I never felt the need to cut back. I had a 6 and a half pound bundle, and had shed a placenta, a load of amniotic fluid and a bit of blood… I couldn’t wait to get on those scales with morbid fascination! I wasn’t desperately concerned with staring in the mirror before I had Bea, and afterward, well, I spent all my time just staring at her instead.
That said, I want to fill you guys in on what’s been happening on the “body after baby” front and tell you about some of my goals for the coming weeks. I think a lot of “bouncing back” was because I stayed active during all 41 weeks of my pregnancy. Basically, it was a big waste of money for me, BUT wearing it and feeling that “drawing in” (like when you do a plank) encouraged me to pull in my abs on my own whenever I was standing or walking.
I even ran a couple of 5Ks without stopping last week, and I didn’t feel like death the entire time! My pre-pregnancy clothes all fit about 6 weeks post babies but the my scale didn’t budge to loose the last 8 lbs. I lost quite a bit of the weight at first, and then it really slowed down after the first month or so. While its important to stay healthy and to have hobbies that you enjoy, it’s also important not to overdo it in pursuit of a number or an arbitrary fitness goal. I’ve just started taking boxing classes (before that I was concentrating on weights and cardio) but already feel that I might join CrossFit too. Random question-I know you are really strong and back at crossfire but have you had any back pain when maneuvering q?
This is purely my own personal experience and not meant to make anyone else scrutinise themselves, mother or not.
In the end I gained exactly 2 stone, weighing in at 12 and a half stone the morning of my C-section.


Being 41 weeks pregnant, I thought I would be ALL about losing the baby weight as quickly as possible, but, truthfully, weight loss hasn’t been my main focus during these past couple of months. And exercise energizes me!) Plus, with breastfeeding and being constantly hungry (so much more so than when I was pregnant), I haven’t been paying too much attention to what I’m eating. I never really stopped working out (I went to CrossFit up until 38 weeks), so I think that helped me get right back into the swing of things after giving birth.
I actually still do a lot of that “drawing in,” which I think is helping me get my abs back. And my CrossFit skills (pull-ups, toes-to-bar, handstand push-ups) definitely need some work since I didn’t do much of them for 9+ months, but I know I’ll get ‘em back soon enough.
As for losing weight, keep in mind that while you’re nursing, your body may want to hold on to a little extra weight because of your hormones. I got back down to my pre-baby weight at about 4 months post-partum, and I just tried to eat right and exercise. You’re still an incredible, unique, talented person whether you can do 2 pull-ups or 10, whether you have a slice of cake on a special occasion or not.
I was (and still am,) breastfeeding but to say that breastfeeding makes you lose weight is the biggest myth in town… I’m sure it does, but if you’re eating for England, nothing can help you! Also, I lost the first 20 lbs pretty quickly, and then the rest of it steadily came off as time went on. Working out again is helping and I started watching my diet around 6weeks, only 5lbs to go. Even though breastfeeding burns a ton of calories, it turns out our bodies hold on to a little of the weight when we’re still nursing.
I remember in the hospital after labor I had a dream (HAHA WHO SLEEPS, YEA RIGHT) I had a dream that I crushed a push-up WOD. I held on to those last 5lbs for a little while, but didn’t care because my clothes fit well and I figured it was all in my boobs, haha. One positive is that I did get stretch marks when I was pregnant… quite a lot of them and early on – I remember being quite devastated when one appeared at 35 weeks and I still thought I had 7 weeks to go! I just kept up with healthy habits and tried replacing some sugary treats for nutritious snacks, kept active, and it came off! My body is so much different now than it was before I had my baby girl, but I know that is to be expected.
I’m not going to lie though, it was tough walking round in a bikini on holiday before she was even 4 months old.
They were all under my bump but I’m pleased to report that like the ones I got in my teens they are all invisible now unless you scrutinise my skin.
