We are very excited to be launching our BRAND NEW initiative which is the Lose Baby Weight Motivating Mum Segment.
Each month, a different mum on the Lose Baby Weight plans will be blogging about their journey, exercise, ups and downs and be here on a daily basis to help motivate YOU and THEMSELVES along the way – and if you want to become our Motivating Mum for one month see here on how you can enter (we pay you for it too!).
And in March our first Motivating Mum off the block and taking up the challenge to motivate you is Linda Hallas.
Linda has already done an incredible job on our weight loss plans and plans to reach her target weight by the end of March and is taking her role of Motivating Mum by the horns to help her do it!
You can read Linda’s introduction below – and she will be posting daily on our Lose Baby Weight Facebook page and blogging weekly on the website here – GOOD LUCK LINDA!! You can do it!
Meet Linda – Motivating Mum March 2013
I am Linda and this is my story, let’s take on March together!
I received an email asking me to be Motivating mummy of March, wow awesome. Bugger now I have to fess up to everyone that I was a big girl and we all know that bigger is not always better.
I feel Wonderful since I have been using and benefiting from Lose Baby Weight. I was even unrecognisable to a friend that I was catching up with last week who has not seen me since December. I am a transformed woman, for the very first time since becoming a Mummy.
After reading the Lose Baby Weight website and seeing that I could still breastfeed my then 3 month old while using their healthy mummy smoothies, I decided I needed to try it and everything about it lived up! The products, healthy mummy smoothies and 28 day diet & exercise plan has transformed me and I could not be happier or prouder. And my milk supply has increased dramatically.
While I was pregnant with my new addition, now 6 months old, I told the doctor I was not happy, just before giving birth I was weighing 122kg (BMI 39.8)! Was I ever going to find myself again? I felt like all this weight was literally suffocating me and making me sad. I avoided photos because I did not like the way I looked. At my 6 week post birth check-up, we discussed my weight again, I was 109kgs (BMI 35.6), 3kgs heavier than when I got pregnant with number 3.
I procrastinated for 4 or so weeks, November 12th 2012, my life changed, I ordered smoothies and the 28 day diet. I was actually impressed with the texture and flavour of the smoothies. December 17th I was 99kgs and all of a sudden I could move and I was loving the daily emails from lose baby weight, meal ideas, smoothie ideas and exercise motivation. They kept me going. My husband has even lost 4kgs just eating their meals.
Sometimes it was hard and I particularly remember the first 10 days being the hardest, I stopped putting sugar in my tea. I used honey. I was sitting there feeling like if I just ate some junk food I would feel better, but I had to break these habits. I would share these bingeing feelings with my husband, sometimes on the edge of tears. He reminded me like Lose baby weight did that this would not make me feel better and that I was doing awesome. This was a tough time for me because there was still so much of this food available in the house. But I stayed strong.
When I started the healthy mummy smoothies I set up a lose Baby weight profile in the weight loss tracking area (which is all free) and I set a goal weight of 75kgs, I had recently decided that I am making it 70kgs. Because not only have I enjoyed the journey but Lose baby weight has really made it feel EASY to do!
I lost another 10kgs over January, making me 89kgs which was what I weighed over 6 years ago. Over February I made it 84.3kgs with a BMI of 27.5, my goal during the month of March is to achieve a healthy BMI, giving me a healthy weight for the first time in 9 years.
I plan to achieve my goal by eating from the 28 day diet plan, by using the Lose baby weight smoothies and a moderate amount of exercise. Follow me through March and watch me as I tackle the home stretch to a healthy BMI.
I want all of you to join me whatever your goal is, do you have some baby weight to lose? Have you fallen off the wagon? Are you so close to a personal goal just like me? Set aside your procrastination and lets tackle March together, 31days! You have nothing to lose, except the baby weight.
