“My name is Amy , I’m soon turning 30 and I have battled with my weight since I was about 6 years old. I am on a mission and for once in my life I actually feel as though I will reach my goal thanks to Lose Baby Weight.
I am 28 kg down from my biggest point during my 4th pregnancy, nearly a year later and I have 23kg to go. This time around I have been honest and realistic with myself. I can’t expect change without making a change, and gradually I have done that. I surround myself with the positive aspects to weight loss and eliminate those areas I used to fail at.
Most of all I have realized that I’m only human, I have four children under 7 and a husband who works away sometimes. Instead of looking at the gym as a chore I chose to see it as ‘me’ time, and I actually look forward to going! Sometimes I can’t do my whole circuit so I squeeze a much quicker 5km run in where possible.
If I can’t be bothered at the end of the night to make a healthy meal when my husband is away then my freezer has a standby to save me reaching for something I will regret eating. I don’t have treats in the house for the kids that I like to eat, I wouldn’t be able to resist. I count my calories to add up my days intakes and factor in my exercise so that I can on the odd night have a glass of wine and enjoy it and not feel like I’m undoing all my hard work.
I battled with feeling guilty going to the gym while I leave my family amongst what sometimes resembles a bomb site, but I unfortunately realized it’s all sitting there waiting for me when I get home, and the boost of moral from going to the gym makes for a happier mum and wife on return.
The Healthy Mummy Smoothies make the day run smoother, it’s one less thing I have to think about and I feel so much better for having them, I know I’m getting all the goodies and it definitely works with the whole change to my world. I’m losing it slowly but I’m doing this in a way I can maintain. I now know I can’t always be perfect but I can move forward and not give up. I am not going back to my old self and I’m a better person for it, not only for me but for my family”
