Forget to mention my way of losing pounds. I didn't lose weight drastically, I only lost 1 kg per month. So in total I've lost 13 kg when May is 13 month old.
My tips are,
1. having meal without rice, remember not less rice, no rice is the best .
2. drink plenty plenty of water.
3. exercise at least 3 times a weeks, which includes aerobics, yoga, and swimming.
4. other alternatives like using sauna belt from TVShopping.
Last but not least, no starv no lose.
