So here’s my first weight loss update since becoming a Lose Baby Weight motivating mum for April 🙂
I’ve lost 1.7kgs in the past two weeks, so that’s now just over 18 kgs lost using the Lose Baby Weight Program.
I’m feeling really positive and like it’s only a matter of months before I reach my weight loss goals. I find it easier to stay motivated if I focus on one day at a time. I make a plan for that day: what I’m going to eat from the lose baby weight cookbooks or website, when I’m going to fit in exercise etc. If you just keep at it you start to see results. The hard part really is in getting started!
The Lose Baby Weight 28 day plan and exercise program has helped me to get back on track with healthy eating and lifestyle habits, and I believe the reason it works is because it’s real food instead of a fad diet. I’m still eating whatever I want, just making healthier choices. One of my favourite dinner recipes from the 28 day plan is the beef stir fry and I’ve had that a few times this fortnight. I’ve also tried a few recipes from my new Spring & Summer cookbook: the chicken burger and the chicken and mango kebabs were amazing. Hard to believe that it’s possible to lose weight eating such delicious food!
It’s hard to choose a favourite healthy mummy smoothie – I always like anything chocolate, but this fortnight I’ve tried a few new ones that were also delicious. I love tropical flavoured smoothies, so I’ve been making a few healthy mummy smoothies with pineapple, passionfruit and mango.
One thing that has helped to keep me on track is eating whenever I’m hungry (but making sure that it’s something healthy!). Before the Lose Baby Weight program I would sometimes try to limit my food intake or cut out carbs etc to lose weight. It would work for awhile, but it wasn’t sustainable because then I’d just get so hungry that I’d eat anything I could find. The 28 day plan is flexible enough that if I am craving a particular food, I can have it in moderation or satisfy my sweet tooth with a chocolate healthy mummy smoothie.
I notice that I have a lot more energy and feel fitter since making the commitment to exercise daily (walking, exercise DVD or gym classes). I absolutely love the Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD! Since I go to the gym most days now, I wasn’t sure that it would be challenging enough – but I definitely work up a sweat! I like that there is the flexibility to choose whether to do shorter work outs or the whole DVD at once.
My daughter was sick for a few days last week, so I had to miss some of my regular gym classes. It was great to have a back-up plan that I could do at home and it helped to keep me on track with my exercise goals. I think when you’re juggling mum and life responsibilities it can be so easy to make excuses about why you don’t have time to exercise, but I think it’s important to just make that time. I’ve never heard anyone say that they regret exercising once they’re done.
I’ve been taking weekly measurements every two weeks, and was so happy to see those numbers go down again. I seem to be losing most of my weight from my waist first; I hope the rest of my body starts to catch up!
Here are my updated stats:
End of November (start of using Lose Baby Weight program):
- Weight: 95.2 kgs
- Waist: 131.5 cms
- Hips: 127.5 cms
- Thighs: 69.5 cms
- Weight: 77kgs
- Waist: 99cm (lost 32.5cm)
- Hips: 119cm (lost 8.5cm)
- Thighs: 61.5cm (lost 8cm)
For the next two weeks I aim to lose another 1-2kgs by exercising daily and following the Lose Baby Weight 28 day plan.
The accountability of having to share what I’m doing has been so motivating, and I hope that it’s motivating others. Keep going, we’ll get there together!
