Hi Beautiful Mummys!
My name is Carmen Chong-Nee and I am so so very privileged to be one of your Motivating Mums for the month of March! I am the very proud mother of 3 beautiful children, Marley age 4, Marcus age 2 ½ and Maiya age 16months. My 3 M’s and the apples of my eye.
I like so many of us fell into the tired trap and reaching for the most convenient foods available to me which often resulted in nutrient deficient high calorie foods that wreaked havoc on my body, seeing me not only pile on weight but also gravely affected my mental health and saw me seeing a counselor for PND and anxiety. I reached my highest weight in June at 111.6kg.
Thankfully I stumbled across an advertisement for Healthy Mummy on Facebook. Their philosophy’s about weight loss totally resonated with me and I started reading their regular emails and trying out their recipes. I also joined the private support group on Facebook and after seeing so many incredible results decide to join the Bi-monthly 28 Day Challenges.
The 28 Day Challenges have been such an incredible tool in my weight loss. I started my first challenge in September weighing in at 109.3kg (as seen in my picture) and have since lost 16kg, bringing my total weight loss since finding Lose Baby Weight to 18.4kg.
The bulk of this weight has been lost during the challenge months. Having the support of so many other women taking part in the challenges really helps and encourages me to complete all the exercise challenges and stick to the meal plans.
A few of my favourite features of the challenges is the fact everything is already done for you so you don’t have to worry about writing out a shopping list or thinking about what you’re going to eat, it’s all there done ready to print which is so handy for us as busy mums. Another feature I love is that all the calories for the food are already worked out for you.
The idea of calorie counting has never really appealed to me, but I do like to be aware of my rough intake, so having the calories all worked out means I can quickly see if I need to add in a few extra snacks for the day or not to ensure I’m fuelling my body with the energy I need for that day.
And I can write this without mentioning the workouts! I love love love them, Im not a huge cardio fan so I love that they have mixed it up and added strength training in their aswell and now pilates too! The videos make it super easy to follow and ensure you’re doing all the moves correctly. There really isn’t a bad thing I could say about these challenges, they are incredible and have been completely designed with a busy Mum in mind!
The Healthy Mummy Smoothies have also played a role in my weight loss. I am still breastfeeding my 16month old and knowing that I’m consuming something that is safe for her is so incredibly important to me aswell as knowing its providing me with all the nutrients I need. The smoothies are absolutely delicious and a lifesaver for those “run off your feet” moments when I just had no time to prepare and cook something, so having them on hand to quickly blend together for a quick on the go meal is incredible and there are just so many recipes to choose from.
My weight loss hasn’t come off as quickly as I’d hoped, its been very much a rollercoaster ride, not so much of an up and down but an up and plateau. I’m still learning as I go and have plenty of moments where I’ve slipped back into old habits which has seen my weightloss stall, usually in the off months of the challenges. Im still finding my way and learning what works for me and how to self motivate.
That’s what I love about Lose Baby Weight though, their website and newsletters are such a wealth of information and we are never left to do it on our own. Lose Baby Weight has given me all the skills I need to reach my goals. Since finding Lose Baby Weight, although I’ve fallen off the wagon more times than I can count I have never felt like a failure, I’ve never felt like it’s too impossible and I can’t do it, which is definitely how I would have thought before finding Lose Baby Weight. I know I have the skills and with each slip up, I know it is just a bump in the road on the path to reaching my goals. With each slip up I become more resilient and I can recognise my weaknesses and how to counteract them and how to climb back on the wagon faster and fiercer than before.
Lose Baby Weight has not just helped me lose weight but has given me a new lease on life. I no longer suffer from PND and my anxiety attacks are few and far between and I have way more control of them when they do occur. Despite being bigger still now than my pre pregnancy weights for all 3 of my children I have never been healthier or happier or more confident in myself than I am now. All this because Lose Baby Weight has taught me how to feed my body with nutritionally dense food, that feeds my mind body and soul they it needs to. I hope that my story can inspire you to take this journey aswell. It wont be easy but it WILL BE WORTH IT!
