Motivating Mum Jade Shaw has lost an amazing 19kgs with Lose Baby Weight and talks about believing in yourself.

Hello beautiful mummies
This months blog is about self belief.
Growing up I was always so active and involved in a lot of different sports! I played rep basketball between the ages of about 10-14 I was super fit as I was training a lot. When I was about 14 I gave this up an became what you would call a lazy teenager! I stacked on a lot of weight and I went from being known as that  “Fit Girl” to being known as the “Fat Girl”.
I have battled with weight issues ever since. Now that I’m an adult and reflect back on how I used to feel I realised that I never had self belief or self worth. I would always tell myself it was to hard and give up. Since joining Lose Baby Weight back in September I have done things I never ever thought was possible.
My weight loss started off with actually believing in myself once I got through that and got myself into a mind set of believing in myself everything else just clicked.
The thing I have got out of believing in myself are

  •  self worth
  • Happiness
  • enjoyment of life
  • Freedom from self doubt
  • feeling stronger within myself
  • Free from fear,anxiety and depression
  • less stressed
  • Energy and motivation
  • Determination
  • Feeling of achievement
  • confidence

My biggest achievement to date would have to be believing in myself to become a runner. I never thought I would be that girl that I used drive past and evy because she was running the street happy,fit, healthy and strong. It feels amazing to say I’m now that girl who is running on the street and I’m no long that “Fat girl” I’m that “Fit girl”.
When I started using the app c25k I can honestly say I was terrified not only to fail but so be seen running the streets when I didn’t even no how to run. The first week was honestly one of the hardest things I have done physically, emotionally and also mentally! I’m not going to lie I did throw up the first few time but this is where self belief kicked in I kept telling myself I could do it and I pushed through it.
It’s probably one of the biggest things I have done mentally because your mind always plays funny tricks on you but you just have to ignore it and keep pushing and I promise it will get easier. I’m now on week 5 and just about to do my first 20 minute run. 5 weeks ago I would have been so scared to do a 20min run but now 5 weeks on I’m pumped because I no I can do it and I no now I will win the mental battle.
So ladies self belief is very important you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it
