    What's a reasonable amount if time I should allow myself for the weight to drop? Babies are 2 1/2 weeks old and I still have 30+ lbs. not rushing lol, just wondering!

    I've gone by the rule that it takes 9 months to put the weight on, give yourself that much time if not longer to take it off.

    Don't worry about your weight yet, but try and make healthy choices.

    My weight started to budge around 6 weeks pp, although it took some work after that point to get rid of the rest-healthy diet and exercise is the way to go! :)

    Yay, I would say that you should give yourself at least 9 months. Our bodies need a lot of gentle TLC after pregnancy and birth. They go through a lot growing and birthing two babies. They need time to fully recover before they can worry about dropping extra weight.

    For now, think: I need to eat a variety of healthy foods when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. If you do that, your body will sort out the rest just fine on its own.

    I think 1 year after you are cleared. It took me two years to lose 60 lbs
