Pregnancy Weight & Postpartum Weight Loss

Hi Stiletts,

I’m going to take you through my pregnancy weight and post pregnancy weight loss and body changes. I’ve posted the progress on Egreis Gjergjani Instagram Page over the last 5 months, since I gave birth to Gio in December, however I can understand how annoying and time consuming it must be to go through all my pictures, in order to see the changes. So I decided to make it easier and blog about it.

What have I done to lose weight so quickly? How did I do it?

Egreis GjergjaniI was 130 pounds at the beginning of my pregnancy. I wore a size 4. Most people would always say I didn’t look 130, but a lot less, however I’ve been a steady 130 for a number of years now. I have to say I’ve never been fixated with weight, as in the actual number, but rather the way my body looks. Meaning, as long as my body looks good, I really don’t mind if it’s 140, 120 or 130. The actual number itself does little for me. My only concern is the visual aspect of it. I say that because I know too many women who are far too stuck on that number.

I often hear “I have to lose 5 pounds” rather than “x amount of inches”. I’ve seen and know women who are in the 140’s (lbs) yet their body looks AMAZING. Super toned and lean. You would never think they weigh 140. And I also know women who weigh in the 120’s (lbs) yet have a lot of “flab” in their body and can definitely benefit from toning it up. So I’ve learned not to care so much about the number itself.

Due to my morning sickness, I lost 7 pounds the first 3 months of my pregnancy. I was throwing up non stop; could barely keep anything in. I looked sick, literally. But as the weeks went by, I started feeling better, and so I began to eat more. By the 4th month or so I was back to my usual weight: 130lbs. And the pounds kept adding on, until the day I gave birth, at  180 pounds. Check out Egreis Gjergjani Belly Growth Chart post to see pictures of me each month of my pregnancy.

According to WebMD Healthy Gain Weight Chart, I was supposed to gain between 25-35 lbs. Yea…..let’s just say that wasn’t in the cards for me. Bizarre when I think about it because I truly didn’t look like I had gained that much, and not just that, but most people would say I was “all belly”. I have to say a lot of it went to my thighs too… oh and can’t forget my tatas that got HUGE.

Egreis Gjergjani

I often wondered how did I end up gaining 50 lbs? At the beginning of my pregnancy I told my husband, “I’m only gaining 20. You’ll see”. Good thing we didn’t make a bet on it. Boy would I have lost! I don’t recall eating poorly. If anything, I ate a bunch of fruits. My craving was figs and watermelon believe it or not. Random. I did drink a lot of water too. But crazy enough, my body didn’t retain too much of it. I never had swollen feet or legs or anything.

So I guess it remains a mystery…this whole 50 pounds thing. Gio was only 8 lbs and 4 oz. And with all other things calculated I was left with an extra 20 pounds that I had no idea where it went. But perhaps it was all fat and I was just oblivious to it. Perhaps I was in denial. Who knows. The important thing is I’m 5 months postpartum now and I’ve shed almost all of it off.

So before I get started on how I lost my weight, I want to remind you that if you are pregnant now and are gaining a lot of weight, DO NOT WORRY. Unless of course it’s way above the chart. But even then, as long as your tests at the doctor’s office are coming back normal you are fine. Enjoy these 9 months of not sucking your tummy in! i do miss those days! 🙂

Genes play an important role when it comes to your physical appearance. The shape of our body is inherited. Some of us are lucky and can get away with eating anything and everything without worrying about weight. Some of us can also get away with not working out and still looking “in shape”. And then there are some of us who have to watch every bit of sugar and count each calorie to ensure we don’t add on the unnecessary pounds. By now I hope you have an idea of which kind of person you are. If you are one of the lucky ones, then you most likely will have an easier route with this whole body post pregnancy journey. And if you are one of the majority of women then you know you will have to put in the work, but at the end of the day know that it is worth it.

Egreis Gjergjani 10 days after giving birth to Gio:

I happen to be lucky. The women in my family have bounced right back after each pregnancy they’ve had. No cellulite, no fat, I don’t even get it. So when I got pregnant I wasn’t too worried about anything. I just had a feeling I would snap right back in shape. I have to say that it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Well it hasn’t been hard either, so let me not sound like I’m in any way, shape, or form complaining. But I expected to give birth and look thin like I didn’t just go through that whole ordeal.

So the number one thing that plays a major role in how your body will be effected by pregnancy is GENES. That’s not to say however that you have no impact on the way that you look. Exercise is one of the most important things you can do that will change your body into an amazing shape if you wanted to. That combined with good diet and nutrition can do wonders for your physique. This applies to all women, whether they’ve given birth or not. Heck, it applies to everyone.

Egreis Gjergjani 21 days (3 weeks) after birth:

Speaking of nutrition, I’m a relatively healthy eater. I eat a lot of fruit, drink a lot of water, and make sure I eat protein daily. Not really a carb kind of girl, but I do love my cupcakes and that tooth of mine is oh so sweet. I think the rest of my diet balances it out though so it’s not so bad and it hasn’t really given me any issues; not yet at least. I think this has been a big part of my postpartum weight loss.

How your body was before pregnancy has a LOT to do with the aftermath as well. If you were in great shape prior to becoming pregnant, you will have muscle memory and so your body will bounce back a lot quicker. I often hear women complaining about not losing too much weight after they gave birth, expecting to become slimmer than they were before they got pregnant, and most of the time they are relying solely on breastfeeding to do that. Hate to say it, but that’s not really realistic. Sure, some women will become thinner after having a baby than they were before. But those women more often than not were in good shape before they got pregnant. And they are also quite active so please keep that in mind and do not rely on breastfeeding as your only way of shedding it all off.

Egreis Gjergjani 6 weeks postpartum progress:

With that being said, breastfeeding has done an AMAZING job for me. On average you burn around 500 calories a day when you are making milk. I have been exclusively breastfeeding Gio since the day he was born. And he has quite an appetite. I think it’s the best thing I could have ever done for him. He’s such a healthy, happy boy! But on the other hand it has done wonders for me as well. Because apart from eating well and breastfeeding (keep in mind my genes) I haven’t done anything else to lose all this extra weight. So I highly recommend it. But more so for the benefits it has for your child than for you yourself. I believe that once you become a mother, you can no longer be selfish. Your child’s needs come first. But here’s something that not only is amazing for your baby, but for you as well. So if you can, go for it!

Egreis Gjergjani 3 months postpartum progress:

So far I’ve covered body before pregnancy, genes, nutrition and breastfeeding. Now let me talk about exercise a bit. I haven’t worked out at all since I’ve given birth. I also didn’t work out during the whole 10 months of pregnancy. I did however go on walks with my husband a lot. That is the only form of exercise I did. And even now, after giving birth, I take Gio on daily afternoon or evening walks (unless it rains). Our walks are about 20-30 minutes long. Not much, but enough to get some fresh air, get my blood flowing, and give Gio a chance to be out and about and get familiar with the outside environment. I don’t know how much this has helped but I have to imagine it hasn’t done me any harm. So I do recommend it. It’s peaceful and it’s good for you.

If you do plan on working out (more than just walks) please consult your doctor before you do so. I know I was advised not to workout at all for the first 6 weeks. So please check before you do so.

Egreis Gjergjani 4 months postpartum progress:

And lastly, the only other thing I’ve tried has been the waist shapers. Most of you probably have no clue what that even is. I used a few different ones from different companies. They vary in material, elasticity, shape etc. So I wanted to try a few different ones. Here’s the absolute truth: I didn’t use any of them enough to really give a true review. So whether they actually worked or did anything for me, it’s unknown. I take care of Gio 24.7 and quite honestly haven’t had the time to put those on and keep them on all day like I’m supposed to. But I think I will start to. I have seen and heard from my own friends that they’ve done wonders for them. I just wish I had the time or better yet the patience to snap it all in and wear it all day long. But if you can, try it. And please let me know what you think.

My grandma was the one that recommended it. In our culture it’s quite popular to use it after birth and from all the comments I’ve received from my followers, it seems like it’s pretty common in other cultures as well. I have to believe there must be some truth to this ritual. So I’m going to really give it a try one of these days and stick to it.

And today, almost six months later (on June 6th) I’m 136 pounds, back to size 4. My clothes fit just a little bit tight, but size 6 is too big, so I’d say 2 more pounds and they will fit just right. Keep in mind I’m not really big on the number itself, and quite honestly I’m pretty content with where I am now 🙂

Egreis Gjergjani today, May 27th – almost 6 months post birth:

I think I covered it all.If you have any questions, please leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you. I hope this helps (cuz it took me hours to type this and finally finish it 🙂 )

    Hi, First and foremost I want to let you know what a great mother you are and how precious baby Gio is. I am having problems shedding my baby weight. I have a 1 year old. I weighed 170 the day I have birth. I now weigh 135, but I am 4’11”, which is a lot for my height. I wanted to ask you about the waist shapers. Which one did you like the most.

    Thank you.

      I’m not a health or fitness specialist, so I can’t tell you if it’s normal or not, but I do think it takes 9 months to put on the weight and it should take at least that to drop it. So if i were you I wouldn’t worry. Give it some time.

    First, let me start off by saying I love you! Hahaha as weird as it sounds I feel like I have known you for years. You ALWAYS give me motivation to practice the Law of Attraction and Never stop dreaming and I Thank You for that from the bottom of my heart. Secondly, my fiance is a huge fan of me following your mommy tips. We don’t have children yet and I feel like we have been preparing for a while. We are all for doing tons of research, although we will never truly be ready we like to know we have at least made an effort to have some knowledge on anything baby related.

    Thank You for the blog and Thank You for sharing your life experiences with us. My love and I look forward to reading your posts religiously.

    Again…Thank You and cheers to a new friendship via comments 🙂

      Hi Lorin,
      Check out Egreis Gjergjani Birth Story for all details of my birth. As far as stretch marks go, I didn’t use anything. None of the women in my family ever had any so I relied on that, being that stretch marks are for the most part hereditary. I will try to make a post on some of the top products out there though.

    I enjoy following you on IG and thanks so much for sharing part of your life, you’re a great example for all girls/women. As for corsets, you have a great body, don’t use them. Yes corsets are popular but they also have side effects, was told this by a doctor. Wearing them too long over time will cause issues with internal organs, I’m not a Doc, just passing info on…

    You are such an inspirational woman. I love your baby. He’s gorgeous!!
    I relate to your post. My baby boy was born Dec. 6, 2013 at 1 AM. I had a pretty though delivery. My baby weighted 10 pounds 22 inches and it was a normal delivery my poor Angel had to stay at the hospital for 7 days do to breathing problems and and his “cone head” (vacuum was required last minute during delivery cuz he got stuck there) but oh well, Thanks God, He’s a happy healthy baby now 🙂 about my weight I went from 140 lbs ( I was in the best shape of my life) to 210 lbs Dr was worried about my health but all my test were normal. Now I have lost 49 pounds. I am the kind of person that really have to watch what I eat (I’m not in the lucky ones :() lol I have had to work out hard. But I would go thru it again cuz my baby is worth all those pounds. I just imagine how you feel with Gio. As I type my baby sleep in my arms and oooh its the best feeling in the world!
    I love to read your post because you are very explicit, your so humble, kind and smart. Please keep sharing with us.
    Sorry If it is hard to understand my English.

    Lots of love for you and Gio.

    Hi Egi! Let me tell you from one mommy to another I totally agree with everything you have written. I gave birth to my second baby, a healthy and happy baby boy on January 8th. I have been exclusively breastfeeding him and although I have always been a healthy eater I have an extreme sweet tooth. It has gotten worst while Im breastfeeding. But caring after my baby, going on daily walks and breastfeeding have also done wonders for me. And of course most importantly as you said – my good genes!
    Thank you for sharing your experiences, because I am sure that you are and will be an inspiration to a lot of women out there and hopefully through your story there will be women who will understand that starving is not an option. Feeling good about yourself is where it all starts!

Your comments, reasoning as a mom and woman are so helpful and realistic. I enjoy every phase, trip to see your family, your grandma (shes too cute and funny), and all of your daily updates on IG.

    I am 35 weeks pregnant and you have made the joys and pain of having an infant delightful. Gio is a cute little Dumpling (also the nickname for my lil Phoenix (girl). Bless you and your family!

        I had one quick question… For how long did you take the Mother Pills? I have 9 week old baby girl and I still feel so horrible about not being able to breastfeed her. I had a c-section (I’m 5’3 and she was 9 lbs 8 oz) so I feel like that is what delayed my milk coming in but I tried and tried all day and all night during my stay at the hospital and she would keep crying and crying so I’d end up giving her some formula to fill her up. At that point I felt like the worst mother ever bc my milk wasn’t enough. As soon as I was discharged I went to the store and bought mothers milk tea, fenugreek pills, oatmeal, and lots and lots of water. I did what I was told to do take 3 pills 3x a day, drinking the milk 3-5x a day eating oatmeal 2-3x a day and drinking loads of water. I pumped every 2 hours and I couldn’t get anything out. I ended up purchasing 3 different kinds of pumps and every time all I could pump was one ounce from both breasts. After 4 weeks of trying and trying and my baby not gaining weight as much as I didn’t want to I decided to just give her formula… But I still feel like a horrible mother, I had planned on breastfeeding her until she was 1. But now I’ve been thinking about trying to breastfeed again, re-lactating and wanted to give Mother Pills a try, but I was wondering if you still use them or was it only for a while? Btw I can’t get over how handsome Gio is and how amazing you look. You’re right Gio looks like the happiest healthiest baby ever and it has to be bc of breastfeeding (well besides all the love he gets from everyone but especially his mommy)

    It’s funny but I went through so many similar things as you (not much exercise during pregnancy, only breast feeding and no exercise postpartum, no waist shapers) and can identify and agree with many things you write about. With this next pregnancy (due in September) I plan to try the waist shaper as I heard it really helps snap things back in faster. I bet it’s annoying to wear though. Your baby seems very happy and well taken care of!

    Hi Egreis! First off I just want to say you’re such an inspiration and I’ve been following you since your old shoe closet days lol I just had a baby girl, Layla, almost 3 weeks ago and I finding it really hard to produce a lot of milk and I really don’t want to give up until I’ve tried every thing possible. A while back you posted these pills you said helped you with your milk supply can you please tell me the name of those pills and can you give me any other advise on how to help increase my milk supply. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon I know you get tons of comments and emails.

      Hi Andrea, I had the same issue the first 6 weeks. But I never stopped. Trying pumpin in between feedings, drink about 4-5 cups of mothers tea($4.99 a box), and take fenugreek pills($10 a bottle ). Also try eating oatmeal once a day. And not the single package kind. By the real whole oats. The mothers tea can be found at stores like target, sprouts, whole foods. And the same with fenugreek. It is found at sprouts and okay health stores. Doing those three everyday together has made my supply triple. It did take a couple of weeks, but know I am able to store extra milk in the freezer!

      Daily routine.
      Breakfast: Oatmeal, tea, 2 fenugreek pills

      Tea

      Lunch: meal, tea, 2fenugreek pills

      Tea

      Dinner: meal, tea, 2 fenugreek pills

      Tea once again before bed

    Just want to say you are seriously so motivational! I’m about 8 months now, and I’m still in my healthy weight gain, but I feel like a house compared to how small I was before! It seems a lot of weight has gone to my thighs and butt. Awhile back I was overweight and I worked really hard with dieting and excercuse and had shaped my body to how I wanted. Now being pregnant I’ve worried entirely too much about how I will bounce back. Reading this made me feel so much better! And it put my mind at ease! You are so beautiful and have a beautiful baby as well! God bless!

    Amazing blog post! Loved reading through it. What kinds of bras did you use throughout your pregnancy and now when you are breastfeeding your baby?

    Thank you for sharing your story. I am a first time stay at home mother to my 10 month old son, and I was like you. I was 130 pounds per pregnancy and had horrible morning sickness and went down to 120 pounds but by the time I gave birth I was 178 pounds!!! I was all belly and boobs so I know how you felt when you looked at your body and didn’t know where all that weight went. But I love watching your journey it let’s me know I’m not alone.

      That’s amazing. It is very similar to mine. Feels good to know someone else went through it too, doesn’t it?

    Inspiring. I feel so discouraged and scared of change because the overweight body I have lived in since 10 years old is what I know. Reading your blog makes me feel I can lose the weight and become more fit. I now am pregnant and want to be healthy not only for my child but for myself and my husband. Thank you for being honest and humble and just real :):)

      Thank you Katherine! Give it a try and see what the result is! But honestly don’t get too stuck on the amount of weight you drop, rather than the inches. xo
