weight loss slump

Dear DietDoc

I am 31 years old, female, medium build. I exercise at leat 3 times per week at the gym, combining cardio and strength exercises and I believe I follow a healthy diet (though it sometimes strays over weekends!). My weight hovers between 62 and 65kg. I am 160cm tall and have had one baby 3 years ago. This places my BMI at approximately 24. Even though I know this is an ok, healthy weight, I would still like to have my before pregnancy body back. I really do try very hard, but just can't get under 62kg! I would be happy to be back at a healthy and slightly slimmer 58kg. Any advice? I read the article that states that perhaps this is a healthy weight, but how then do other people my height and build seem thinner? And how can I get rid of this terrible post-baby "jelly belly".

Appreciate the advice,
