Hi Everyone! I have lost an amazing 31kgs with the Lose Baby Weight challenges!
Lose Baby Weight-31kg Loss
This will be my 9th round of the 28 day challenge, Second stint as a Motivating Mum and I am super happy to fill you in on a little secret – I HAVE REACHED MY GOAL WEIGHT!
That is right – I jumped on the scales at the end of the September Challenge to get the best shock of my life.
I have now lost 31kgs and it is all thanks to The Healthy Mummy and the Lose Baby Weight 28 Day challenges.

My Goal for October is to tone my tummy and improve my overall fitness.
I’ll start off telling you a little about me and my journey so far –
I am a 27 year old Mum of two beautiful boys (4 & 1), I live in Brisbane with my gorgeous husband, the kids and my dog Murphy.  After Christmas last year, I was miserable. I had been trying to pull myself out of mild PND – brought on by a difficult pregnancy, difficult recovery and a reflux bub who liked to spend every second of his waking hours attached to me (Shout out to the baby wearers in this group – Only way I survived!!) I was 94 Kilograms.
I have always been overweight, but not this bad.  I was exhausted. I was huge. I couldn’t remember the last time I had felt good about myself and so… something had to give.
I started Googling ways to lose weight.  Having had little to no success on 12 week, low calorie diets in the past, I knew I needed something different.
Lose Baby Weight came up in my searches, and as there was a special on for the January Challenge – I decided to give it a crack.
A few things were hard for me to get my head around – the first was how frequently I got to eat – 3 meals and 3 snacks a day seemed too good to be true. Plus my calorie allowance was more than 2200. I could not believe it.

But I decided to shelve all my prior “knowledge” of how to lose weight and just go with.
I nervously put together my meal plan and trotted off with my shopping list.
I must admit I just about fell over when I saw the price of my groceries. You might too, but bear in mind that the first shop is a pantry filler shop – You will use a lot of these things again so it is worth the initial out lay for the savings down the track.
Plus you will soon become a pro at customizing your meal plan to suit things you have in the house. Make sure you watch the tutorial on the challenge hub!
I dutifully divided all my meat and vegetables into bags by meals – get yourself a decent pair of kitchen scales to help with this!
I found the meals relatively easy to make and my husband loved them too! My four year old was a bit dubious of some meals but he came around in the end.
I started doing the challenge exercises. I found them easy to follow and fit in with my day.
Mostly though, I walked my dog. One day I was walking the dog and I was about a block and a half from home when he started doing the telltale signs of needing to relieve himself.
I had come out without a bag so I decided to run home. I had never really run before, but run I did.
I made it home, wobbled up the front stairs and collapsed on the lounge room floor. I felt like dying. My husband brought me some water and had a bit of a giggle. My 4 year old flopped on me. Something had been sparked inside me though.
A passion for running that I never would have dreamed existed.
The next time, I ran two blocks. I just gradually increased the running distance. It was a long time before I found my groove, but last month I successfully ran 5 K without stopping!
Two weeks into the challenge I went to a pilot program being run by the White Cloud Foundation. Part of that program allowed me to see a dietician and an exercise physiologist.

I told them about the Lose Baby weight challenges and they had not heard of them – so said we could talk about it at the follow up.
I saw them again two weeks later and they were floored. I had lost 2 kgs in that time. Both of them told me that they had been through the program thoroughly since speaking to me and they could not fault it.
I was told it was a sensible and sustainable way to lose weight and I should carry on doing it.
With the support of the professionals and my success so far, carry on I did! I lost 4 kgs in that first challenge. 3 kgs in the gap between the January and the March challenge (Before they were monthly) and another 5 kgs in the March challenge.
I could not believe it! The weight was falling off and I never went hungry!
I had started at a size 18. I set myself a goal of being a size 14 by the time I went back to work at the end of April. I didn’t quite make it, but two weeks back at work I had to buy all new work clothes! I am now 63 kgs and a size 10!
Returning to work came with a whole heap of organizational challenges – so I will talk about those more in my next blog.
In the meantime, Enjoy the October Challenge and feel free to ask me any questions!
