Motivating Mum Ashleigh Sobey has lost over an incredible 20kgs with Lose Baby Weight and talks about gaining confidence and the 3 things she wants most.ashl1

Hello again ladies,
February has been fantastic! I have loved being a Motivating Mum and getting to know more of you better. I’ve found lots of new recipes which will now be regulars in our household.  Delicious Healthy Mummy Smoothies, treats and main meals.  I love the French Chocolate Cake from the Guilt Free cookbook.  My new favourite smoothie is the Blueberry & Banana Bang from the Healthy Spring & Summer Cookbook.
I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the non-physical changes that I have seen through my journey with Lose Baby Weight.
The main part of my journey has turned out to be a gaining of confidence that I have never had.  I have always been self conscious and soft spoken.  I’ve never felt good about myself or the way I look.  This has made me miss opportunities and be very lonely at times.  It has taken me to have two beautiful babies to finally appreciate what my body is worth and that it is finally time to take care of it properly.
It’s a sad fact that our children grow up and while mine are still very young at the moment, this is something I am very aware of.  I give them loads of cuddles and soak in the memories that we are creating.

These are the three things that I want most:

I want to be able to play with my children.  Now that I am more active and healthy, my boys get to run around with me, wrestle on the bed, and go to more fun places with me.  All of these things would never be possible if I hadn’t found Lose Baby Weight and their plans and 28 Day Challenges.  I’m forever grateful for that.
I want to be in photos with my children.  My memory probably won’t hold me forever so I hope to have a lot of preserved photographs that I can look back on fondly.  I have avoided them up until recently because of my body image issues.  Now that I have lost just over 20kg I am beginning to become more secure within myself and really really want to be in as many photos as I can.
I want to be a good role model for my children.  It would make me really happy to know that as my children grow up, they know that their mum was healthy, happy and never gave up.  I will know that the food I am serving them will be good for them.  If they grow up seeing me with the desire to be fit and healthy then I would be very proud.
The main point I wanted to tell you all was that I have found that I want these three things more than anything.  I want them more than that extra serving, more than that unhealthy take away meal, and more than just sitting on the couch.
Thank you so much for sharing my journey.  I am not giving up.  My wedding is coming up quickly and I am eagerly excited for the big day.  I know that thanks to Lose Baby Weight, I will be the stunning bride on the day with a smile from ear to ear.  Beautiful both inside and out.
