Hi my name is Kat Brown and I have been following the Lose Baby Weight healthy eating plan for over 12 months, you can see my latest update here.
Today I wanted to share with you a post that I have been working on for the past few weeks about my issues with self-confidence.  I hope that my honesty can help some of you who suffer the same issues can help you to be kinder to yourselves:
I have always had some sort of self-conscious body image issue, even before I fell pregnant with our first child (and I definitely shouldn’t have as I was very slim!)  So when I hit my max weight I was never in any photos as I was always disgusted and ashamed of the way that I looked.  I have now lost 24kg by following the Lose Baby Weight plans and using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies and I have gained a little bit of self-confidence with that weight loss but nowhere near as much as I thought I would.

I have had 4 babies in 5 years and that was a little bit rough on my body ( I am a little girl 152cm and had big babies, 8 pound, 8.8, 9.9 and 9.9) and I had just assumed that my body would bounce back every time (it didn’t!) and this has left me very self-conscious about myself as I now have bigger hips and a very visible mummy tummy (to me) that is refusing to leave me.  I know that alot of you may be comparing yourselves to me right now possibly thinking ” yes but you have lost all of your weight and you look great” or ” You look alot better than me” and that’s why it is so frustrating for me that I just cant see myself the way that others see me- as a success story. kat_brown
So my journey at the moment is a VERY hard journey for me, the self-love journey.
Some weeks I really embrace my new figure and treat myself with the love and respect that I deserve and then other weeks I feel like I have let myself down and that I should be further along with my weightloss than I am and that I should be completely finished by now as I keep working so hard to achieve my goals.
My husband is my rock on these weeks; actually he has always been my rock and loved me for me no matter how I have looked!  He is the one who is constantly reminding me of how far I have come and what I have achieved and that I should be PROUD of myself as he is so proud of me (insert awwwws) and I know that with his constant encouragement and support I will gain the self confidence that I have earned and that I deserve.
I know that like the weightloss journey, this journey will take time as well and with the amazing constant support of my husband, the Lose Baby Weight team and all of the amazing mums in the private Facebook Group I know that I can learn to love my NEW self.
Stay Happy and Healthy xoxo
