My father had to wear suits and his had to be tailored so they were expensive. His job as a church minister required him to have four suits. Any time he put on weight he'd put his normal portions on his plate then leave some of each uneaten. He'd indulge in dessert but only half. Within two weeks he'd lose 10 lbs and his suits fit as they should. He didn't believe in dieting per se, just cutting back. We ate in restaurants maybe 2 x yearly. My mother was a good cook and prepared good rounded out meals. We were all healthy and not one of us was or is overweight.

How long has it been since you were pregnant.
I have a friend who told me if you get those back braces for heavy lifting and you put it on very tight it helps your hips get back to normal..
But it has to be immediately after having baby. :)

OP, don't just yourself back too far.

The smoothies are good and all, but you need to keep eating. Remember to have 6 meals a day, even if two of them are your smoothies. Small and healthy is the key.

Say, smoothie for breakfast, an apple for morning tea, smoothie for lunch, carrot sticks for afternoon tea, lean meat and steamed vegetables for dinner and perhaps a frozen low fat yoghurt for dessert.

I can also vouch for the back brace technique that ApolloRider mentioned. I have to wear 2 back braces for work and, combined with the exercise I have been doing lately, my 'rounded retangle' figure has become more hourglass. If you wear the brace whilst exercising, you will also sweat a lot more, which is good. When I get home from work and take the braces off, they and the shirt I wear under them are always drenched.

Good luck!

I made my first jug of Kombucha tea which is green tea (or black) sugar water and a culture added. It took about 10 days to "ripen". It doesn't taste sweet as the culture converts the sugar. If refrigerated it gets sparkly. I just had about 3 ounces and it is filling, like I've just eaten too much. Small wonder people talk of weight loss when drinking this. One can buy it at some stores but it's pricey when home made is the cost of 6 teabags, a cup of sugar and a gallon of water.I let mine set a day too long and it tastes a bit like apple juice or cider.
