Kirsty Boyce – March Weight Loss Winner
“After the birth of my first daughter I was left feeling fat, ugly, tired & depressed. I had just become a first time mother & found I could only focus on her, and her alone. Everything else was too hard. I was diagnosed with PND & had a hard time just dealing & getting through daily life.
When my daughter was 6 months old I looked at a photo my mother in law had taken and I wanted to die. I didn’t even recognize myself at first. That. Was. It.
I went on to successfully loose 16kgs & felt better than I ever had! We decided to try for baby #2 & because my husband is in the Navy & my struggles to fall pregnant the first time, we thought it would take ages. First go & we were blessed. We welcomed our second beautiful daughter into the world in April 2011.
I happily bounced back to my pre-pregnancy weight bar 3kgs which I thought would come off easily. I continued to watch what I ate, but slowly, & slowly the weight crept back up as I tried to deal with having 2 girls under 3 on my own most of the time & coming to terms with the traumatic arrival of my 2nd baby girl.
We recently moved interstate over Christmas & I was stressed, tired & just let myself go. I could feel myself doing it but kept pressing that emotion down, deeper down so I couldn’t face it anymore….I kept feeding myself excuses… “it’s Christmas!” “we’re moving” etc.
Once we got settled in to our new home I contacted Rhian from Lose Baby Weight & bit the bullet. I knew I could do this.
Rhian has been the most supportive person. I can email her about anything & she is so helpful & always willing to listen. Her love & support goes above & beyond & I think that is a major contribution into why us mums are so successful at losing our baby weight! Rhian knows we can do it!
In March I have lost 4.7kgs…. and easily! The food is freaking amazing – even my husband & girls love it too! I have found myself excited to try new recipes & feel so good in myself! This morning I jumped on the scales & found another 400g gone… and it isn’t even hard! I don’t feel like I am on a “diet”.
I’ve set my final goal weight a little lower this time than before, which is exciting. But I am setting mini goals first & along the way find myself so proud that I have reached that small milestone.
I have another few kilos to go but I know I can & WILL do this. I feel a million bucks already!
Thank you Rhian, for allowing my to start the journey of finding myself again, not as a wife or mum, but as me. A happy, healthy, confident woman. You are the best!!”
