OK, so here's the background...
I am currently bf'ing my 7 month old and have been doing workouts on the wii fit and zumba to the point of muscle fatigue and sweat collecting on my face and neck. I occasionally eat chocolate - a bar at most.
However, I generally have a fruit and fibre breakfast cereal with 2% milk. At lunch it's usually a sandwich (mostly cheese on wholewheat). For dinner it's mainly chicken or salmon - never fried and veg and a small amount of brown rice (sometimes potatoes mashed with a drop of EVOO) - I don't use a big plate.
Snack-wise, I don't generally do it but my fav is lemon yogurt or some kind of fruit.
I drink around 3 cups of English tea per day, 1-2 dilute drinks, but generally water.
Why am I losing no more than 5 or so pounds? I really don't understand! I've been quite consistent with my exercise and do at least an hour - would do more but I have 2 kids who always break my stride for one reason or another.
I have a wedding dress a dress size down to get into in 2 months and 1 day! Please help!

honestly ti sounds like you are eating enough. Your body is going into starvation mode and making milk then storing the rest.

Same issue, I wasn't eating enough and my body was holding on to everything trying to ensure that my body and baby's body was fed. Try increasing your healthy caloric intake and continue the activity level. I didn't believe it with my first but with my second I didn't restrict my calories and I lost more weight in a shorter time period. Good luck!
