Description:5'1", 38-yr-old, married, stay-at-home mom of 6 kids. I don't think motherhood is a good excuse for being fat. Yet, here I am.

1/1/13 - 145.2 lbs.
my GOAL - 120 lbs.

My Goal:
To get down to 120 and have good muscle definition.

Preparation + Perseverence = Success

About me:
I'm a 38-yr-old happily married stay-at-home mom of 6 kids. I've been stuck around 135 for a few years and was up as high as 145 on the first of this year. I'm back down to 135, but need to break this plateau. I've recently discovered/admitted that I have gluten/dairy sensitivities, so I'm avoiding those. I restarted the Cleanse (for the 3rd or 4th time) on 3/27/13 as well as the Hormone Reset Program. I need to get a handle on this mess. I've started reading The Hormone Cure by Sara Gottfried, and Slow Burn by Stu Mittleman. I'm enjoying them both and hope to get a lot out of them.

Diets I like:
None, apparently. But I'm trying to avoid gluten, dairy, and added sugar.

Workout of choice:
Walking (with weights) & running (without weights) on the treadmill, JJ Virgin's 4x4 workouts, hula hoop, punching bag,

My plan:
Follow the Cleanse for 2 weeks and then follow the after-plan. Follow the Hormone Reset Program and feel like a happy human again. Exercise regularly and happily - hopefully.

I need the most help with:
staying motivated. not giving in and not giving up.

Additional Info:
I love food!
