That's not much weight to lose! Take some extra walks, do some weight trainig. Burn calories. Track what you eat using an online calorie counter or food diary, that way you know what you are taking in. Be honest. Fitday is good, there is a tracker on WebMD, and Calorie Count is good. All are free.

Drink more water, stop eating refined sugar, be wary of anything that comes in a box or a bag. Processed food gives you less nutrition and more weight gain. Eating real, whole foods, feeds your body better so you have fewer cravings. Don't skip meals, have healthy low calorie snacks all the time.

If you cut 500 calories a day you can lose 1-2 pounds a week. Working out builds muscle and that burns more calories. DO NOT cut your calories below 12-1300 calories because your body will go into starvation mode and you will gain huge amounts of weight when you quit dieting.

Good luck!
