Change your food
Make your meal simple. Protein, fruits, vegetables, and one grain. This will make grocery shopping quick and easy. I love to get creative and get inspiration by looking at youtube channels that are based on healthy cooking. If you just stick to a protein and a few veggies for dinner with fruit (homemade sorbet) paired with exercise the weight will come off.
Stop eating so much white bread including donuts, dinner rolls, and sandwich bread. Your body converts this stuff to sugar. Try gluten free breads if you just have to have it. Your body and your ego will thank you for it.
You are going to need to drink ALOT of water! There is no doubt about it. You gut may stick out because there is residue in there from years of toxin build up. Do yourself a favor and drink at least 6 (16oz) bottles of water. This will help your body digest your food and it will help your body rid itself of toxins.
While trying to lose weight we fall short because of all of the empty calories that we are consuming in our beverages. Our coffee creamer, our store purchased juices are laden with calories! Do your self a favor and drink water or a freshly squeezed juice to quinch your thirst!
As a busy mom it is difficult at times it is hard to eat right. That is why it is vital to prep your meals for the week. Some moms go as far as prepping for the entire month.

To stay on track have your tupperware in place and pack it up for the week. Do not forget your snacks. Guacamole and veggie chips are a good snack. So is hummus and gluten free bread.
