Why am I NOT losing weight?

Hello:

I had my daughter in January and I gained a lot of weight, and have only lost 12 pounds and I still have 60 more to lose. Please don't judge me, I was considered underweight when I got pregnant and had to gain extra.

I just switched to a strictly vegan diet in the past few months and I haven't noticed any weight loss whatsoever. I am at a standstill.
My diet consists of tofu, vegetables, brown rice, and the occasional boca burger or spagetti dinner. Of course I cook recipes on here every so often but I didn't think they would be hindering me from losing weight. I only cook with grapeseed oil and try to sub for vegan margarine whenever I can.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I'm not losing weight? Or what I can do to jumpstart it? I considered a water to fast to detox and cleanse but I'm afraid it would just slow down my metabolism afterwards. And I don't know if this information would help also, but obesity runs in my family and so I've always had to work harder to be my pre-pregnancy shape, but with all this very low fat eating, why is it not going away?

Thank you!

I am so glad I came across this thread  :)  this has answered so many questions for me. My whole family thinks the only reason I went vegan is for weight lose and after looking around at the different foods out there you can gain weight and be heavy on a vegan diet. I really do need to invest more into the raw foods and so much of the processed foods. I do have a question though, what about beans??? do u need to limit the amount of these like you do pasta or is it ok to eat a lot of them?? right now it seems like every recipe I make has beans in it :>

thanks so much
