  • Make sure you don't skip ANY meals. You need 3 well balanced meals a day that are appropriate servings. And also before eating a meal drink a full glass of water so you fill fuller sooner. And don't drink anything but water ALL day, you need at least 8 glasses a day. Good luck

  • I did weight watchers. That really helped me. I needed the accountability. And I agree, drink only water. Also, take the kids for walks. Get a double stroller and push it around.

  • lots of water, 6 small meals a day, each meal contains 50% fruits and veggies, 25% protien, and 25% natural fat(nuts, cheese, ect..). and exersise... about 20 min a day...

  • Simply, move a little more, eat a little less. The weather is turning...walk that baby in a stroller! Walk walk walk, oh and I totally agree, replace all but maybe one glass of milk a day with water!

  • Yes, what salexander said. Move more, eat less. You're not eating for 2 anymore, so smaller portions are key. Move more -- I went to Curves after my second child and lost all my baby weight after 6 months, (3x a week, 30 minutes each time.) Good luck. You can do it!
