I'm having trouble losing the last 20 lbs of baby weight. I just joined this site. I am also on meds that are supposed to be making me gain so I guess it is a "success" if I maintain. Still trying though.
I was just browsing the site when I saw your post and had to reply. Good for you! We have a bit in common - my daughter is 14 months old as of yesterday, and she is also my fourth! I have 3 boys, 9, and twins that are 6. I have been on a start stop cycle these past months with dieting - feeling frustrated and very down about the whole thing - but I'm sure this will pass.
Prior to my latest pregnancy I had lost 26 lbs, so you'd think this would be easier. I have between 50 and 60 to lose (ticker isn't accurate).
Good luck! You should feel really proud that you've had such a strong start!
Great picture of your kids!

My baby will be 3 on Saturday and I think his weight is finally off. I'm still carrying around 30lbs from my first who is 6.
