Struggling to lose baby weight? This mum did and now she’s lost 1.2 stone in 6 months
After 12 months of struggling to lose weight following a difficult pregnancy and the birth of her second child, 35-year-old mum Robyn joined The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. And soon after the weight started coming off.
In less than 6 months she has lost 1.2 stone and is well on track to smash her total weight loss goal of 2.8st in another 6 months.
Feeling happy to find a program that is getting her results. Being invited to take part in The Healthy Mummy Body Confidence photo shootin New York as part of world Healthy Mummy month is something Robyn says she never dreamed would happen.
She shares her amazing weight loss story below.
A difficult pregnancy and doctor-ordered bed rest led mum Robyn to gain 3.4st with her second pregnancy.
Robyn breastfed for a year afterward and was convinced that once she was done with breastfeeding, the weight would just fall off, just like it had with her previous pregnancy. But she wasn’t so lucky.
She says, “having to buy clothes in larger sizes after my daughter was born was horrible. I literally fell into a depression and I didn’t understand that despite breastfeeding, my weight wasn’t falling off as it had after having my first child.”
In addition to the benefits of helping Robyn budget and plan her shopping, she has lost 1.2 stone in just under 6 months (down from over 14.2st to 13st).
Not only is Robyn feeling more energised to keep up with her kids, but she also says “I am feeling better, lighter and even see my skin looking healthier.”
Robyn’s 3 tips for weight loss
Robyn shares her top 3 tips to help mums on their weight loss journey below:
Schedule your workouts like a meeting you can’t miss. Even on a rough day, a 10-minute walk is better than nothing!
Stop drinking soft drink. I feel less bloated and I am no longer craving it!
She says “I am a real working mum, with a husband, 2 kids, and a dog!I am so excited to see my progress and how I change for the better in the coming months. And I feel very empowered to help as many mums on their journey as possible.”
The Healthy Mummy team would like to congratulate Robyn for taking control of her health and weight and inspiring other mums to do the same. We know that she will be smashing her weight loss goals in no time.
