Was it the Mirena? Have you had it removed yet? If you still have it, you probably won't be able to lose the weight. If you HAVE had it removed, what kind of birth control are you on now? If it's another progestin birth control (mini-pill, Depo, etc.), you still won't be able to lose it. I didn't lose it until I had the Mirena removed and got back on Yasmin. It took me a year to lose 20lb (out of the 35lb that I gained from the Mirena), then I made the mistake of getting a Depo shot, so I've gained 10-15lb back. Anyway, after getting on a different birth control, watching what you eat and exercising some will help a lot. Also, make sure you drink a lot of water. It's basically like weight loss from any other kind of gain. Just watch what you eat (don't under or over eat, eat healthily, etc.), drink a lot of water, and start working out some (walking is good, but I would also try adding some stuff like weights, crunches,etc.).
