Gained weight due to pregnancy complications. How to lose weight before conceiving again?

I am 26 years old, 5 8 and currently weigh in at 189lbs. I delivered a stillborn child on August 31st at 25 weeks. I have not lost any weight since delivery. I have had a normal period and am due for another cycle soon. I have also had my thyroid levels checked and everything appears normal. I eat extremely healthy and do not consume a great amount of protein due to polycystic kidney disease . However, I eat lots of veggies and whole grains. I also drink a lot of water, around 3 liters a day, and I exercise at minimum 30 mins everyday. Prior to pregnancy I weighed 163 pounds and gained a lot of weight due to complications with pregnancy. Is there anything I can do to help rid myself of this weight prior to trying to conceive again? I do not wish to start another pregnancy at my current weight.

hi angelalangner..i totally understand your worry and you have taken the right decision of not conceiving at this weight.. i would suggest up you exercise to 1 hour daily avoid wheat and milk completely for sometime as some people do not lose weight due to these small meals every 2-3 hours, start your day with green tea and dates and have fruits for breakfast, coconut water in between, salads with lunch along with veggies, chicken/ fish, brown rice... sprouts/ egg whites/ chicken in the evening and soup, salads, veggies, grilled non veg for dinner.. continue drinking plenty of well..
