I actually looked more toned and what not after I had my daughter but I did 30 mins or cardio a day and 30 curnches. Cardio helps u lose the weight (waking, jogging, running) and situps and what not will do the toning. But to make it more effective, dieting and eating properly will help you to lose the weight combined with exercise.

Are you breastfeeding? That generally helps take the weight off more quickly, you also lose a few lbs after you stop.

After I had my daughter I had a lot of weight to lose. I had gained about 60lbs during my pregnancy, and let me tell you even my stretch marks had stretch marks!

I started doing cardio for 40 mins, 5 times/week and about 100 crunches/day. I lost the last few lbs after about a year. I weigh less now than I did when I was pregnant, but my body doesn't quite look the same.
