pregnancy weight loss

I'm 16+4 weeks, and so far have lost more weight than I've gained.  Has anyone else lost weight? I'm overweight and not all that upset for the loss and I'm currently 9 lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight.  Just wondering if anyone  else is losing.  I think this is because I am not craving the sweets I was before I wad pregnant.

I would like to lose more, just not sure I'll keep going at the same rate.  It would be nice to lose 29 lbs or so before delivery and lose another several from delivery.  I didn't drop weight from not drinking soda, I rarely had that in the first place-just don't care for it. I currently have a foot injury (lingering for the past 4 weeks, but when that gets better, I hope to get out walking more to aid in the weight loss.  Exercise during pregnancy is good for both mom and baby anyway.

I'm in the same boat, I lost 22lbs total by 20 weeks and now I'm 29w 3d and gained back 4-5 lbs of what I lost. Doctor isn't concerned so I'm not. Hoping to be lighter after this baby comes than before.  I'm not dieting or anything just trying to be healthier.
