After I had Charlie I lost 20 of the 30 pounds I had gained pretty quickly. Breastfeeding was my best friend in that regards. Everyone who would come and visit me would tell me how good I looked and how I must have lost all of the baby weight already. Talk about a confidence boost! But even through all of this I still felt awful. My clothes were snug, I wore a post-pregnancy girdle to hold the newly formed muffin top in as I shoved my self into my old work clothes. What was strange was that I barely bought any maternity clothes and lived in my old leggings and some stretchy dresses and now those same dresses didn't seem so forgiving.
My friend Kate had been telling me about the amazing superfood she had been using for the past 5 years and how it was the one thing that got her body back into shape after baby. I was skeptical because I've never had to use anything to lose weight before. My metabolism and some moderate exercise always did the trick.
But I knew that between working full time and trying to spend my free time with Charlie that I would never get the gym as much as I needed to in order to lose those last 10 pounds. So I bit the bullet and told Kate that I was ready to make a change. And then Kate cried. No seriously, she cried because she had been praying for this for me for a long time and knew it would change my life....
In my first 30 days using this nutritional re-balancing program, I lost 8 toxic pounds and numerous inches. I stopped using caffeine to get me through the day; I didn't even need it. But best of all, I gained back a sense of me!
I am now 3 months into using these products and I can say that it has changed my life. I have energy to come home and not just want to go to bed after Charlie does. I can feel a change mentally too. I have this positive outlook that just can't be stopped.
And the little kid in me loves having a secret weapon all of my own.
