Myrasalman, The only thing that worked for me was the bootcamp style workout and tracking my food here. I found I was putting way too many calories into me. I didn't lose much weight for the first while, but I trimmed down several inches. I put on muscle, which is now helping burn the fat. I reshaped my body and I look almost as good as I did before kids. I had 17 lb to lose, and I am almost there (about 0.5 lb to go...) after 4 months.
The only way I can get in my workouts is by going to the gym at work during lunch and doing the bootcamp. I also run when I can get out for 30 minutes without my 2 young kids. If I have to take them along, my 20 minute run takes 90 minutes...
