I am doing the Paleo Diet and I lost 10 pounds in the first two weeks! Since then it's been slower coming off but I'm not hungry, I sleep better, I have more energy, I'm less irratable, I've had no cramps during my period and I've been more regular.
The basic concept is to eat like a caveman - only lean meat, fruit, and vegetables. No grains, sugar or dairy. I thought it would be hard to give up pasta and bread since most of my diet was made up of those prior to trying this but I am LOVING it. The food I'm eating now is flavorful and I'm not eating the same thing every day.

Also, keep a food diary. I was convinced I was eating less than 1000 calories a day until I started a food diary. Write down everything that even touches your mouth. I actually was eating only about 850 cals. a day until dinner/after dinner where the bulk was late night snacking and I wasn't losing weight because of the extra calories late at night. Even grazing with bites just here and there throughout the day add up. If you can, make an appointment with a nutritionist. Your doctor can refer you to a dietician or weight loss program if you feel you need it.

I've had 8! kids and am fighting with the 10 that I've gained since I stopped nursing. I was able to keep the weight off by walking 30 mins and have also joined an excercise/bootcamp class that is 2x a week. I also try to eat whole grains, veggies and lots of fruit.

Breast feeding really helped me. I am an older mom and I thought it would be really hard for me. Walking, fruit, chicken breasts and water. I got hungry and now I have gained some back, lol.

Breastfeeding did it for me. I breastfed my son until he was 18 mths. Before i had him i was in a size 12. I am now in a size 8. All from breastfeeding, never had to exercise.

Diet and exercise, and I don't mean a "crash diet." Try to eat healthy fresh foods at least at 2 meals a day, and walk, run, join a gym, take a class, get exercise DVDs, etc. at least 4 times a week, 30 minutes at a time. NOT EASY but you will see results. The eating has to become a lifestyle, not a quick fix.

I used to walk to town and back every day, didn't feel like exercise. Stay away from fast food and sugary drinks. Lots of water and fruit and vegetables. Fish twice a week.
