Eventually you will be able to do it for two or three hours straight. The weight melts away slowly, as you are adding muscle mass quickly.
I am in a similar situation - baby weight that just doesn't want to come off despite trips to the gym and diet. About 10 years ago I lost 50 pounds through skating but got it all back with pregnancy. Since I've started playing hockey I'm down 20 pounds and not minding the exercise at all. It seems to come off slowly, but I noticed today that my calves right now are about the size/shape that they were when I had been doing speedskating for about a year. I skate more now with hockey than I did before, so that makes sense, I guess. The scale doesn't always show the real progress, since adding muscle is going to keep the numbers on the scale from changing as quickly as one might hope.
I've also found that my endurance is way up from when I first started playing. I still get really gassed when we play 4 on 4 with only 1 sub, but for a regular game with lines, I have no trouble giving it 100% and then coming back and doing it repeatedly throughout the course of the game.
