You should see results no matter what you have to lose or gain, but here's the thing. Since you've lost a bit of weight and might not have really exercised during that loss, you MIGHT tone up without necessarily losing a ton more weight but end up in a smaller size than before you had the baby but be at a bit higher weight.

I moved 4 years ago at about 180 pounds and a size 18 or 20 regular (14W or 16W). I gained up to about 270 but wasn't that high too long. Started Curves at 255 and was a size 22W sometimes a 24W. I've lost a mere 30 pounds since I joined Curves 10 months ago but I'm already buying those 16Ws again and that means that either I will get down to my goal weight of 170 (I'm 5'10") and will be a much smaller size than I'm planning on being (Which is A-ok with me :) or I won't HAVE to concentrate on losing so much weight but concentrate more on getting down into that 12 or 14 regular that I should be at.

Most curves concentrate more on inch loss rather than weight loss because with a workout like Curves offers, it's going to almost always produce inch loss before weight loss and in my case, I lost 5 pounds in 6 months before starting the Curves diet where I've lost almost 25 pounds in 4 months on that. The combination of the two is the best recipe. And I don't mean ONLY the Curves diet but diet in general and exercise in general are the recipe :)

Let us know how you are doing from time to time for sure and let us know how your first month goes, when you get there ;)
