Feeling Great! (Anonymous)

I gained a fair amount of weight during my pregnancy. I’m barely over 5′ and I gained almost 35 pounds when my baby was born at just under 38 weeks gestation. I’m 8 days postpartum and so far I’ve managed to lose over 15 pounds, and my belly is almost as flat as it was before I got pregnant. I have been so fortunate to get my body back so quickly.

    Sweetie, you are only eight days postpartum!!! I was losing weight for two years after my DD was born. Breastfeeding helps! Eating right. Getting out for a walk every so often, but honestly? There’s nothing wrong. You just gave birth. Your body is healing! You look gorgeous! And so tiny!!! I’m 5 foot 1, so I looked EXACTLY like you at 8 days PP. I’m in size 5s now, 2 years PP and smaller than before. Still nursing, too… the girl doesn’t wanna stop! lol

    Congrats!!!
