But Rae Willingham reveals it wasn’t always like that. She says while she’s lost big numbers, she’s GAINED self belief.
Rae reveals there was a time she wasn’t always so confident. But after working on looking after herself and her health, she’s managed to finally see her self worth.
“Today I would like to talk to you all about the importance of SELF BELIEF,” says Rae.
“The biggest battle is the mental one. My self worth is a work in progress. I have lost 3.2st and am wearing a comfortable size 8 but there are days, fewer and further apart now, where I question my worth.
“Some days I look in the mirror and find it difficult to see the healthy and fit mum that I have become. My mind is taking a bit longer to catch up with my body.

“There are days when the reflection looking back at me is the old, overweight, unhappy woman of a few months back and it takes a lot of mental strength to see past those memories.”
Rae’s 3 top tips for staying positive while losing weight:
1. Take your time
“There is no race, it really doesn’t matter if you get to your goals in a month or a year. What matters is that you have cemented better practices to ensure that this sticks as a lifestyle.”
2. Everything in moderation
“If losing weight means missing out on living your life then you have missed the point!
The Healthy Mummy teaches you balance and moderation and encourages you to eat the cake at times but to then come back to your better choices.”
