Robyn’s Weight Loss Story
Hi everyone! I’m Robyn and I have been lucky enough to be chosen by Rhian to be the motivating mum for the month of May.
I am mummy to Charlotte who turned 1 yesterday, 22 April.
I was featured on the Lose Baby Weight website back in September. Here is my story from then
Basically, I put on 21kg during my pregnancy, and after all the fluid loss etc had finished, I weighed 94.5kg, 14.5kg above my pre-pregnancy weight. In early August I decided enough was enough and ordered the healthy mummy smoothies and 28 day plan. I lost 5kg in the first six weeks.
After that though, I fell off the wagon after a 3 week family holiday and it took me until early January to start again. From January until now I have lost the remaining 9kg of pregnancy weight!
I suffered from pelvic floor weakness for the first 6 months of my daughters life and was not able to do any high impact exercise. I was cleared by a physiotherapist specialising in pelvic floor issues to go back to high impact exercise at the 6 month mark and now I am doing a lot of running, weights and personal training.
I feel very strongly that it is important for new mums to be checked out by a physio specialising in women’s health as you can do a lot of damage, including prolapse, if you do high impact exercise before you are ready. I lost the first 5kg doing low impact exercise so it is possible!
I am currently using my local gym, which involves weekly personal training and group training. However, I credit my weight loss to the Lose Baby Weight program still as I haven’t changed my nutrition at all for the challenge as the education and recipes from the Lose Baby Weight program were perfect for weight loss.
I went back to work 2 days a week in early January, so over the next month I will be talking about some of the challenges involved in trying to lose weight as both a stay at home and a working mummy!
My goals for the next month are:
- Lose 2-3kg
- Run a total of 30km including:
- Compete in the 4km run for the Mother’s Day Classic
- Follow the 28 day plan
- Try a variety of new healthy mummy smoothies
- Motivate you all to lose weight and exercise with me!
My current stats:
- Weight: 80.3kg
- BMI: 25.1
- Bust: 92 cm
- Waist: 77.5cm
- Hips: 97cm
- Thighs: 53cm
