losing baby weight

I had my son on the 7th and have lost about half of the weight I put on. 13lbs of baby/amniotic fluid/placenta and 12lbs of water. But I still have 20lbs of fat that I put on during the pregnancy. Just wondering if anyone had success in losing the baby weight? I could use some pointers. I already eat healthy and all I drink is water and milk, no juice or pop or anything. I'm too tired to exercise (with Two week old baby and all). Anyone do anything to lose the weight that really worked?

I lost all but 5lbs bfing (I gained over 50 :/) but gained back 20 when I weaned. If its only been 2 weeks just give it some more time. Fat wont fall off like the extra blood n fluids u gained during pregnancy

I am breastfeeding, it's helped my uterus contract pretty quickly. I don't eat fast food so that's good! Thanks when I stop breastfeeding I'll look into it :)

Well when you stop breastfeeding if you are. I lost 20lbs eating healthy and taking alli weight loss pills. But you can't eat greasy food or you'll get nasty butt. But it took me 3 months with no exercise.
