At The Healthy Mummy, we always try and put the message out about safe and healthy weight loss through everything that we do and that you should only ever even think about losing weight when you feel 100% physically and emotionally ready to do so.

We also always try and reiterate that there is no one size fits all perfect weight, and healthy is much more important than trying to achieve a number on the scales.
Loving your body and feeling healthy, confident and happy are gifts in life that are truly precious and they are without doubt some of the most important things you can have in life. Your health means you have more chance of living a long and happy life and this is what we all want for our future and for our family.
And yes, losing weight can make us significantly healthier and give you a lot more energy which is a huge positive and a fantastic reason for losing weight. But what we as women and mums must never lose sight of is just because you are a larger version of yourself after you have had a baby, this DOES NOT make you an uglier version or yourself or mean you should be ashamed of your body.
Gaining weight in pregnancy is a necessity and without it you would not have been able to grow and feed your baby and you should LOVE your post baby body just as much as you loved your pre baby body.
Too many mums don’t like to appear in photos with their new babies or family photos because they feel they look ‘fat’ or refuse to be caught on camera carrying the extra weight and while this is a common feeling, instead of feeling like that, PLEASE try and instead embrace the larger you and embrace the fact that the larger you has brought a beautiful baby into the world.

Love Your Body

You are still you, still the same fun you and still the same you inside who you have always been – you are just carrying a bit more weight from having your beautiful and gorgeous baby..
If you shun your family photos and hide from the camera, in years to come when you look back at family photos you may well be sad not to be in them. I know I would be if I had not been in any of my photos from the first few months after the birth of my babies.
There is plenty of time to lose the weight when you feel ready to do so and until then love your rounded tummy and love the extra weight on your hips and bum you have gained over 9 months of pregnancy as without that, your body wouldn’t have been able to bring your gorgeous little bundle of joy into the world and wouldn’t have been able to produce milk to feed them – so LOVE YOUR BODY.
So love your body, whatever size it is and only think about losing weight when you are 100% ready and when you are ready always always always lose the weight in a safe, healthy and sensible way.
The fabulous mums that send in their weight loss results really demonstrate this more than anything as they all look truly amazing and all have different weights, shapes and sizes and we feel so lucky to be able to showcase so many healthy bodies and healthy and positive weight loss stories every day on the website – so THANK YOU to all the mums who send in and share their stories.
