Weight gain after breastfeeding

Hi Doc
I' ve never had a weight problem and I was very lucky to only gain 9kg during my pregnancy, after the birth of my daughter I lost all my pregnancy weight as well as another 8kg (without even trying!) I breastfed for 11months and ever since I' ve just been gaining weight nonstop. I' ve always been a healthy eater and follow a low GI diet which I enjoy. I also swim every day. I' m a stay at home mommy so going to gym is not an option right now. I' ve now gained 13kg since I stopped breastfeeding 9 months ago and am on the verge of being over weight. Please help. What can I do? I' m 1.7m tall and now weigh 76kg and I am 32 years old.
