About three years ago, Sara Johnson gave birth to her second child—and faced the fact that she weighed 200 pounds. Sara had put on 20 pounds following a miscarriage in 2005 and retained 35 pounds after delivering her second child. With two little ones, Sara, now 35, realized she had to take better care of herself. “I knew I needed to get in shape so I could be a great mom for my children,” she says.

Setting her goal weight at 140 pounds, Sara began with a simple plan to walk an hour a day, four days a week. Foodwise, Sara simply cut out “anything that comes in a box,” including TV dinners, cookies, and crackers. She filled up on baked chicken, grilled fish, vegetables, and couscous.
