Amy’s pregnancy weight loss

“My weight loss story began before I fell pregnant with my son, Jack.
Early 2011, and the last time I was brave enough to jump on the scales, I weighed in at 105kg (squeezing into a size 16) – although I doubt that was the heaviest I was around this time! I, however, was oblivious to how I actually looked on the outside.
My father had passed away in late 2010, and the autopsy results showed he was suffering from coronary artery disease and high cholesterol – prompting me to get my own cholesterol levels checked.
My “bad cholesterol levels” came back at a shocking 6.1, which the doctor described as the equivalent to someone who was unhealthy, in their early 40’s – I was 21 at the time! This was when I decided I needed to be healthier, and started making changes!
After implementing a vigorous exercise routine, healthy diet, and omega 3 supplements (to help lower cholesterol!), I weighed in at 79kg in mid 2011, my cholesterol down to 3.1! It was around this time that I fell pregnant (I’ve been told diet and exercise primes your body and makes it much easier to fall pregnant – and my partner and I were overjoyed!) However, I was aware that with pregnancy comes weight gain, so I made a silent promise to myself to eat healthily during my pregnancy, for myself and my unborn baby.
Fast forward to April 2012, and my son Jack, was born, a very healthy 9lb 9oz – quite an achievement for my first child! I  weighed 83kg post-partum, but with the help of breastfeeding, dropped back to 76kg. Seems all my healthy eating had paid off! I was due to be a bridesmaid at my best friends Bali wedding in September, and was determined to look great in my bridesmaids dress (and a bikini!) so continued with my healthy diet, and added in some moderate exercise too! (where possible – it’s so hard to exercise with a needy little mouth that always seems to want to feed!)
A month out from the wedding, I couldn’t seem to get below the 75kg mark. I was so proud of what I had achieved so far, but my goal weight of 65kg seemed so far away! I was worried about using meal replacement shakes, as I thought I would be depriving my body of nutrients that I needed in order to produce milk for Jack.
I then googled “losing baby weight”, and found the Healthy Mummy range which was safe in breastfeeding– thought “What the heck, let’s give it a go!” and ordered myself a tub of the chocolate shake powder.
I was so happy to find that I felt completely satisfied after replacing a meal with the healthy mummy smoothie (I alternated between lunch and dinner and continued my healthy eating for the meals that I was eating), my breast milk supply was not affected, I still maintained more than enough to satisfy Jack – AND the smoothies tasted great! (like I was drinking a giant, liquid chocolate biscuit – that’s how I described it to my partner anyway!)
Then before jetting to Bali, I had to have an emergency bridesmaid dress alteration before I left because it worked so well for me! The wedding was beautiful, the entire bridal party looked great, and I got so many compliments from friends I had not seen since I was at my biggest!
I am so proud of what I have achieved – I am a Healthy Mummy! 🙂
