It was 5 years after the birth of my 2nd child and I still hadn't been able to lose my "baby" weight! Until I found my secret weapon! My friend, who is a family practice doctor, introduced me to a nutritional cleanse and fat-burning program. I was feeling tired all the time and couldn't lose the weight - after a 30 day nutritional cleanse program, I had energy to burn and the weight was dropping off. It wasn't hard to do - 2 shakes a day and a sensible meal once a day - and a personal coach who supported me a couple times a week (no charge). I never felt like my blood sugar was low and the shakes taste good and fill you up. You get the most nutrition in the least amount of calories. Once your reach your goal weight, your coach helps you maintain your weight loss. I have kept off the weight for 8 months now. If you are interested in bump starting your weight loss, contact me for more information.
Try switching all of your white bread (and pasta) to whole wheat, eat lots of fiber. Don't eat any table sugar (the only sugar you should have is in fruit) and stay away from processed foods. Drink LOTS of water to flush out your system (1/2 gallon to 1 gallon a day) and eat small meals every 2-3 hours instead of 3 large meals. Also eat a lean protein with every meal (incl. the snacks) and keep most of the carbs in the beginning of the day. A great book to read is "The Eat-Clean Diet" by Tosca Reno.
I was overweight before I found out I was pregnant with my son, and lost 60 lbs in the past 7 months using a high protein, low carbohydrate (and all of the carbs I do eat are whole wheat) and low-sugar nutrition plan. I also work out at the gym 5 days a week for 1 hour each day. Cardio works the best to get rid of weight; running, step class, or even just jumping jacks and jogging in the park or jogging up and down stairs at home works great, too)
I hope that is helpful - I know how hard it can be to loose weight, I was overweight for a long time, and knowing how to eat right really makes a difference (plus you have to get your heart rate up when you exercise - I had never done that before)
If you really want to use a diet pill (I would suggest only taking 1 about 30 min before you do a cardio workout) you can try Lean System 7. I used it for a while when I was loosing the last 15 lbs and it helped boost my metabolism to burn more fat (make sure you work out, though, it gives you lots of energy - and I wouldn't suggest breastfeeding while taking it)
