Weight loss...any ideas?

I have been eating less, eating right, exercising (when I can) and still cannot rid myself of the dreaded, "baby weight." I did not gain a whole lot with him, it was mainly water weight, but I cannot seem to get the weight off. I am a bit down because I do miss my old body. I know my son was worth it, but I do long to fit into my old clothes.

How did you all do it, if you don't mind me asking?

    No, I wanted to and planned on it but the medication I have to take (for seizures due to a car accident many years ago--have not had any 5 years though) is a moderate risk to my son if I were to breast feed.

    Thank you. I am hoping. I have patience but I suppose I lose it when it comes to this. I just want to feel like myself. I am not sure how long it takes though.

        I work out with my baby and have her watch while she plays in her exersaucer.

        Babies are good weights, works your whole body.

        I will do sit ups and leg lifts while he is lying on me. I also have done curls with him. He weighs 12 pounds now. I just am being impatient and thinking I will never get there. Thank you all for these tips. I am going to try them.

        My son has an exersaucer as well. I cannot wait until he is big enough to sit in it and play.

        Selena started playing in hers at 3 months we put extra foam padding in with her because she was so tiny, she loves it.

          I even tried the HCG diet and it did not work... so looking for suggestions to!
