I think it's an awesome goal! When I got pg with #1, I had probably 10# I *should* lose to be at a good weight. I was about 135/140# and I'm 5'3". Got pg, and the day I delivered I was 195#. I kind of lost weight after and the lowest I remember hitting is about 160#. I then started packing weight on.... I was 192# when I got pg with #2. I only gained about 15-20# with that one, because I lost 20# in the beginning from extreme nausea. At the end I think I was around 212-215#. After his birth, we were on a strict no dairy/no gluten diet because my then-toddler had allergy issues. The weight slid off! I felt so sexy at 140#. But I was "forced" to eat an altered diet, which meant that when I could eat other bad foods, as soon as we re-incorporated them, I did. A lot. I got to 170# by the time I got pg with #3. Reached about 210-212# with his pg. After delivery, I only went down to the 170's#. By the time I got pg with #4, I was 180#. Reached 215# at the end. Today (he's turning 4 months old in 3 days), I weigh 182#.
So....long story short, I wish I had done what you're doing. I wish I had taken the time to lose the weight before each pg. And to maintain. This last pg was ****, and I believe it was a combo of the fact that we have big babies (no GD though) along with my extra weight. We just today scheduled the appt for a vasectomy, though, so we won't be ttc anymore (
) but I just wanted to give you huge props for setting this goal!! I'm nursing and we nurse into toddler-hood, so I'm trying to gently do this weight loss without hurting my supply.
