So far it's been 4 weeks since I had my adorable baby boy. Pre-delivery I weighed a whopping 180 pounds!!! My doctor kept telling me it was only water weight, but I didn't believe her until now. Pre-pregnancy I weighed 130 pounds and I am 5'5. I had lots of muscles from working out and running. Today I weigh 150 pounds which is great considering it's only been 3 weeks...however the rapid weight loss is probably due to the fact that I have hyper lactation!!! Which means my boobs produce milk like crazy!! This has helped aid in my weight loss. Although I'm extremely happy with the weight loss so far, it's extremely painful and annoying having to pump my boobs all the time! But i know its great for my little man, however I am definitely considering drying up before I head back to work... I'll let you know how it goes.

                                                      Belly Bandit!!
So I absolutely love the belly bandit! After one week I saw a huge difference. I am already wearing a small and now I'm needing an extra small! Thank you belly bandit inventor! You are amazing!
