I regretted not trying to nurse for a year. After 5 months, I too, wanted my body back. I got it, with flabbier breasts and more than I bargained for. I was going to try to start back up, but my DD didn't care anymore. I am planning to nurse DS this time around for a year. I lost some milk at around 6 months and my production just went down from there. I also had a poor breast pump. So, this time, as a "seasoned" mom, I am going to try to do better. I completely understand how you are feeling, just wanted to warn you that you may regret it later on. Good luck, and I think the best way is like said above, just gradually take away feedings. Your body will quickly adjust....and I may recommend adding cereal to his intake too.
