My name is Cat and I am one of the Maintaining Mums for July. I am a Mum of 2 (3 & 7) have lost over 30kgs* using the Healthy Mummy Plans and Products.
I have been wanting to write a little bit about the question I get asked A LOT by other Mums- “How do you stay motivated and not put the weight back on?” I know a lot of women who have lost HUGE amounts of weight both the “right” way and the “wrong” way who have at eventually put some if not most of it back on due to a lack of motivation.

I have thought about this a lot and the best way to answer it that makes the most sense and I am not even sure if I am at the point but I am going to try.
For me, it has been pretty easy to stay motivated and not gain back 30 odd kilos* because of 3 main factors. Now, I know everyone is different, but this is just speak from my experiences.

It’s A Lifestyle Change

The Healthy Mummy and Lose Baby Weight Products really are a LIFESTYLE change, not a diet.
I honestly believe this is the number one reason why I have been able to maintain my current weight. I am an active challenge member and am always using the recipes from the challenge to mix things up in the kitchen; keeping food interesting is a big tick in my books.
The Healthy Mummy also provides those cheeky little treats that aren’t that bad for you but you don’t feel like you are missing out.
Chocolate Mug Cakes, Chocolate Fudge, Apple Crumble, Cheesecakes and Guilt Free Ice Creams to name a few are my go to when I am craving that something sweet. I very rarely feel like I am missing out on something, there is always a healthier alternative in the challenge hub or in the free recipes section of the website.

Take Progress Pictures

I regularly look back at my “before photos” and compare them to current photos.
I am at a weight now that doesn’t change much although I am still FEELING a change and a difference.
I teach Group Fitness Classes so I am quite active during the week. All of my classes are cardio based though so it’s very important to incorporate strength and weight training into my already hectic schedule.
Photos are a massive help for me to see changes in muscle tone and to keep motivated that way- the more results you see the more results you want to see. Looking back at those “before photos” really emphasises that I DO NOT want to go back to THAT.
I don’t want to go back to being uncomfortable, too big to wear ANY of the clothes I owned, too embarrassed to go out, missing out on having fun because I was too ashamed.

What’s Your Reason?

My biggest motivation are my Kids.
I am so lucky to have found The Healthy Mummy when my daughter was still quite young.
By the time she was big enough to be a full on toddler and on the move I was far enough into my Healthy Mummy journey to be able to keep up with her. My health and fitness has improved so much since then and I am able to do more and more with them- only the other day I was showing my daughter HOW to hang upside on the monkey bars are the park. It was such a big ego booster! Being able to do crazy things like that with them keeps the motivation fired up.
Ok Mummies, they are my biggest motivates to stay on track. I hope some of this info will help you on your Healthy Mummy Journey or to maintain once you reach your goals. You CAN do it!
