Dear Nondu
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life)for at least 30 min a day. If you use this type of programme (diet and exercise) you should lose between 0,5 and 1 kg per week, which will result in an average loss of about 4 kg per month.
Good luck with losing and enjoy the baby
