Charlotte Labrum has lost an amazing 12kgs with Lose Baby Weight and becomes a Motivating Mum  for February and talks about how her energy has increased and her goals for the month.

Wow! What can I say? What an amazing opportunity.
My name’s Charlotte, I am 23 and mummy to two beautiful, troublemaking little girls, B, aged 3 (in 2 weeks *sob*) and T, aged 10 months. I have used the Lose Baby Weight 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan after the birth of B and lost 17kg+ using that amazing product.
Since T’s birth in March 2014, I began my journey in June and did my first Lose Baby Weight 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in July 2014. Now that was an amazing experience. The meals were versatile; the HIIT workouts were comfortable for being a new mum yet challenging enough to know they were working. I lose 3kg in my first challenge and have averaged approx 2kg loss for each challenge since.
After B was born I was 78kg, within 4 months I had lost 12kg using the 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan, which can be found in the Lose Baby Weight shop. I was 74kg the day I started exercising again post T, at 8 weeks post partum in June 2014. My goals have been 70, 65 and now I am aiming for 60.
I was hoping to be 60kg by my wedding in April *squeal* and would be absolutely ecstatic if I got below that. I am now 62.5kg and have been fluttering between 62.5 and 62 for the last two weeks. My main aim is to just feel confident, sexy and like myself for the big day and in the long run, to just have the energy and fitness to be able to keep up with my two little whirlwinds who struggle to remain still.
Since my start in June 2014 I have lost 12kg using the 28 Day Challenges and the 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan. Both which are customisable around my tastes, my family’s tastes and even takes in to account if we are going out or having leftovers and how many people need to be serves each meal and snack.
The virtual shopping list is generated from what I have put in to our meal plan. If we are having a slow cash flow week I can alter the menu plan to use what is in the house to reduce the amount spent on groceries. We averaged around $100 groceries a week and this included general household items.

This month, as Motivating Mum, I want to keep you all motivated to know that you can become your vision of your perfect self. You can be more confident in your skin, stretch marks, saggy boobs and all. The longer I stay on the Lose Baby Weight programs and even on the Facebook Page, the more I learn that my body is beautiful and I can rock my stretch marks and milk filled boobs proudly.
On that note, the Healthy Mummy Smoothies, are absolutely to die for. I notice an increase in my energy, my general health and my milk supply by having one smoothie a day. They are quick, easy and delicious and are definitely worth every cent. My favourite is the Spring Clean Smoothie which both my daughters love too.
So, for my personal goals this month, I want;
– To lose at least 1-2kg
– Continue with Michaela’s 100 Day Challenge
– Start and finish the brand new 7 Day Junk Food Detox
– Spend more time toning my “problem areas”
My setbacks for the first week are going to be my arch nemesis – shin splints. I have a tendency to get these regularly and seem to have pushed myself too far before they were fully healed this time and so am resting and icing my legs for 20 minutes, 4 times a day.
I’ve also hurt my knees, I assume this is all from running and I have incorrect footing when I do run, something I will endeavour to fix so I don’t have to have these weeks off repeatedly. However, I’m determined for this not to stop me, and will be doing the Healthy Mummy DVD exercises that won’t put strain on my knees/calves.
Exciting events this month that will not derail me:
– B’s 3rd birthday on the 17th
– My hen’s weekend in Sydney from 20th-22nd, with my amazing and supportive friends (seriously, surround yourself with these people; they make your journey easier and more fulfilling).
I am so absolutely thrilled to be a February Motivating Mum, not just for my own accountability but to help others know that it can be done and it will be achieved if you keep yourself motivated by surrounding yourselves with other people who are of the same mindset as you.
This is a lifestyle change. An amazing one at that, and the opportunity needs to be grasped with both hands and not taken for granted.
I look forward to writing my next blog update and talking to you throughout the month on the facebook page, my instagram (charleyalekz) and you can catch some of my favourite recipes being pinned on my pinterest page (Charlotte Labrum).
I’m so excited for this month. Here we go…
