❌My baby weight did NOT just fall off
❌Breastfeeding didn’t make the extra weight “fall off” ❌Running around after twins didn’t make the weight “fall off”
⬆️ These were some of the things other mums had said to me about how they’d lost the baby weight (apparently it just “fell off”) and, honestly, it made me feel like I was failing and my body was failing. I felt like a failure.
Some people “bounce back” (whatever that means) I am NOT one of those people 🙅🏻♀️, my body didn’t “bounce back”, although it did bounce! 🙈😂. I had joined a gym, did a few classes a week but wasn’t following a programme and, for me, THAT is what shifted things- following a workout plan. Starting with 30 Day Shred @ , then BBG @ (which I bought and didn’t start for 2 months!!) and now @ ALL AT HOME 🏠 Then learning about how to tweak my nutrition. It’s a learning curve and I’m no way done!
There’s nearly 1.5 years between those photos. That’s 1.5 years of exercising, of learning, of TRYING, of getting it wrong, of getting it right, of being ill and injured and missing workouts but still getting back up and trying the best I could. I was always so afraid to be “the beginner” and would get intimidated by other “fit women” and it wasn’t until someone said to me: 📣“we all had to start somewhere, the important thing is starting” ?
There is no easy fix, just start, do your best and keep going. Every day is a new opportunity to do your best. YOU DESERVE the best.
