Question confused

Ok I have lost another pound, I weigh 1 lb less then when I went to my first prenatal visit in September, but I still can not fit into my jeans. Am I losing the fat in other places?

For me it took 10-15 pounds before my clothes started getting looser, and I didn't have to buy new ones until 20 pounds. You're taller than me, so you're probably a smaller size than I was at 185, but think the general rule of thumb is a size every 10 pounds or so - I wouldn't expect my clothes to be loser after 2 pounds, either. and it doesn't just come off your waist - I've lost mine from the top down and bottom up! Big difference in my chest/arms/face as well as my legs and hips, but I've only just started losing on my stomach. It can take a while to see results, but you're on the right track, so don't get discouraged yet!

I guess I should clarify. Before I got pregnant I weighed around 184. When I went to my first prnatal visit in September I still weighed 184 and could still wear my jeans. But now I am at 183 and can not fit in to them yet. But I didn't know that 10lb is a size that is neat to know. So I have lost a total of 20 lbs since June. I just joined 3fatchicks so i put in my current weight as my starting weight.

okay i think i get it now, sorry! after having a baby your body type is different, after my first i got down to 20lbs less than before i was pregnant, and still couldn't wear the same size ( juniors at the time). it takes some time but don't get discouraged by the clothes, just find things that fit right

Oh sis....I totally know what you're going through...I was so distraught when I was at my pre-pregnancy weight and still couldn't fit into my jeans, but like the PP said, your body changes. How many months out are you? It takes a while for your hips so go back to their normal shape...if they ever do. Have patience they will fit soon!!!

I had my baby on May 11 by c-section. I know, I am just getting discouraged.
thanks Jessica
