I believe the biggest disservice to pregnant women is celebrity moms. They always seem to lose the baby weight magically over night.
After my first baby, I had 20 pounds to lose. It took me 20 weeks despite training for a marathon, breastfeeding and eating relatively well. According to everything I have read, 1-2 pounds a week is healthy post-baby weight loss. So I was right in line with expectations.
So why didn't I lose the weight overnight like Jamie, Tori, Mel, et al? Oh yeah, I don't have a personal trainer, a personal chef, a nanny, a maid, an assistant....
