Her top tips:
Track what you eat. Tracking what I eat on a daily basis has always been the key to my success. Through the Weight Watchers Points Plus system, I've been able to track my way to losing 90 pounds before my pregnancy, and getting all 22 post-pregnancy pounds off quickly. The online tools Weight Watchers offers are such seamless and quick ways to keep things under control. Once I found out about this program, I've never strayed from it.

Create healthy routines. I have learned what my body really needs to fuel itself. Creating healthy routines like eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking enough water and portion control are all parts of my new daily routines. I now grab an apple as opposed to a cookie, which adversely gives me more energy to be a mom. In fact, these new healthy habits I created before, and used during, my pregnancy led me to a very healthy pregnancy.

Create a healthy weight loss environment. One of the things I strived for after having my daughter was to create an environment that promoted my success. For example: keeping fresh fruits and veggies, already prepared in serving sizes, available in my refrigerator for my moments of weakness, and keeping the "junk" out of the kitchen. 

Exercise. Being a new mom, it's hard to make time for yourself, but this was vital for me. I would cut out time each day to exercise. Taking advantage of the small moments to do things to better myself was very important to being a healthy and present mother for my daughter. Incorporating my daughter in my workout routine was also an option if I didn't have time to myself; I would do mommy-and-me workouts, or more often go on runs with her in the stroller.
