Those last 5 pounds are the worst. Seriously find some kind of aerobic exercise. You have to get your heart pumping for 45 minutes or so, like 5-6 times a week. It will come off. I'd also suggest counting your calories too. See how much you are eating, and see if you can cut anything out. Also, are you breastfeeding? Some people can hold onto 5 pounds or so while they are still breastfeeding.
Ok, so just a silly picture to share. We were bouncing my 3 year old and his friend on the trampoline. I don't have a good one showing my weight loss. But, I'm 5'5", 120 lb, and have lost almost 30 pounds since having my baby a year ago. I pretty much only do Zumba classes for an hour 4 times a week.
Oh, and I seriously just bought a pair of shorts from American Eagle that are a size 00. They may run big, but most of my clothes are a size 2 now, and those even are baggy. I don't think I have worn that size since I was 15.
