The Mom: Melissa Rorabaugh, 28*, is a stay-at-home mom to a 4-month old son, Benjamin, and lives in Pittsburgh, PA.

The Diet: The New Sonoma Diet

The Weight:
Now: 163 pounds (“Ugh”)
Pre Baby: 145 pounds
Height: 5'4"
Goal: 140 to 145 pounds

The motivation:
“I’m a first time mom and I've become so focused on my son that I’ve lost focus on myself. I need a jump-start to find a balance for both. My health is most important, but I’d also like to be able to go to my closet and pick out a killer outfit without trying on six before it. My confidence in myself is missing, and I want to start feeling like the confident person I used to be before this little bundle of joy came into my life. I want to be the great mom and the hot wife my husband married two years ago.”
