Meet our April Motivating Mum JANET COOK
My name is Janet Cook and I am SO excited to be April’s Motivating Mum of the Month for Lose Baby Weight!
My weight loss journey actually started in my teens and for the past 12 or so years I always felt overweight. This has been a constant burden on my shoulders, having never really been successful at losing weight.
Five months ago I was privileged to give birth to my beautiful son Jensen and he was worth every kilo and stretch mark. I started regular walking the week after I came out of hospital but I had no idea how to treat my new body and how to prepare it for both recovery and for feeding my little boy. Weight loss was very slow for the first few months and I had constant aches and pains.
I noticed that a mutual friend on Facebook had ‘liked’ Lose Baby Weight. I signed up that same day and haven’t looked back.
I started following the Lose Baby Weight exercise and recipe tips from the website and managed to lose a few kilos.
I took the 2013 January Weight Loss Challenge and purchased the 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan. I lost nearly four kilos that month and it really inspired me to work on my health and fitness with more focus.
When I saw that Lose Baby Weight was asking for Motivating Mums to take on a one-month challenge I initially felt unsure that I would be able to stick to it.
I had another look over the Lose Baby Weight plans and information on the healthy mummy smoothies and I feel very strongly that with the support and tools from Lose Baby Weight – any of us mums are capable of sticking to these healthy plans with great success.
In the past my challenges have been:
- Negative self talk: Especially “Well I’ve ruined this week- I’ll just start again next week” (for years at a time!)
- Peer Pressure: Friends or family that encourage or guilt me into eating food just because they have made it or are eating it themselves and don’t want to eat alone, particularly dessert.
- Being a mum: Tired/busy etc
Sound familiar?? Well this month I will tackle these challenges head on. There is no one else responsible for my life/health/happiness but me.
I will use positive self talk I CAN do this, I WILL be myself again, I am READY! I will not be embarrassed to tell my friends and family that I am eating healthy to feel good and have more energy for my son and husband.
When I go for a walk I will ask myself: how can I make this more challenging? Can I take the long way? Can I jog for a short time? Can I take the steep hill instead of the easy one? I will push through any self doubt. We are all capable of great things if we just let ourselves try!
I started with Lose Baby Weight at 86kgs, am currently 76.5kgs and this month I want to get as close to 70kilos as possible.
I will achieve this by following the Lose Baby Weight 28 day Meal and Exercise Plan, as well as having the delicious healthy mummy smoothies for lunch every day.
I will be posting my results and completing a weekly motivational blog. Keep your eye out for regular posts about what I am eating and what I am doing for exercise.
I would be so happy if you would join me in this challenge! At the end of the month we will look back at what we have achieved.
We will be stronger and have more energy. We will look and feel GREAT. We can do this together!
I have been so inspired by your stories over the past few months- now I hope you can be inspired by mine!
Thank-you for having me as your motivating mum for April- I am SO excited to see what results we have achieved at the end of each week!
