Hey to all you mummy's out there! I need some advice, 7 month pp, 1300 cal per day, vegi and gluten free diet, work out cardio and weights mix 5 x per week for about 1 hr- 1.5hrs... I have come to a halt in my weightloss, for over a month I've hovered at the same weight. My daughter is teething and has gone from sleep through to 3-4 times per night wake ups. I feel so low and exhausted... Advise???

You're not taking in enough calories. Have one of the ladies here calculate your BMR, but I'm guessing that with the amount of calories you're expending, your body has switched to starvation mode and is going to hold onto the weight fiercely.

Do you know your BMR?  I can help you with that if you'll give me your height, weight, age, number of days you workout each week and if you are nursing.

After I had my son my weight also plateaued.  I started eating clean and started a beachbody challenge group.  It helped me drop the last 15 pounds and I have kept it off.  And the best thing is the workouts are only 25 minutes... so even if my son woke up a lot the night before I know I can get 25 minutes done.

Have you switched up your routine? Upped the intensity? Added weight? The body needs constant change for constant improvement! If you're diet is in check, I'd definitely work on switching up your workout routine. Keep the body guessing.

Also this...

Especially if you up your intensity, you need to fuel your body with more calories...but get them from the right sources that help build lean muscle and burn fat.

Thanks ladies! I actually had increased the weight in my workouts without adjusting my diet, I'm going to try adjusting my diet, increasing the cals with more veg, I ll update in a week or two time :) thank you all very much for your advice
