Tammy's Fit Moms Success Story!


fit moms success stories How many children do you have and what are their ages?

I have two children. My son is 11, and my daughter is 9 months.

fit moms success stories How much weight did you gain during your pregnancy?

I gained 25 pounds during pregnancy. I started off heavier than I am now. My daughter was premature at 2 pounds 14 ounces and I still had 20 pounds extra to lose.

fit moms success stories What types of cheat foods did you crave during your pregnancy?

Pasta and grilled cheese sandwiches.

fit moms success stories How much weight did you lose after your pregnancy?

I lost more than my pregnancy weight after pregnancy. I was 125 pounds prior to getting pregnant.

fit moms success stories Did you exercise during your pregnancy?

I had a lot of complications with my last pregnancy so I gave up working out altogether. I just made sure I tried watching what I ate (chicken, eggs and tuna made me nauseous) though if I had a craving, I usually gave in. I just stayed away from eating anything heavy late at night. However, you just get to a point in pregnancy that you start retaining water no matter what you do or don't put in your mouth.

fit moms success stories What made you decide to start exercising and get back into shape after your pregnancy?

I didn't want to carry around all that extra weight. It was my goal to try and get back my pre-baby body before I started work again.

fit moms success stories How long did it take you to start to see results?

I nursed my daughter for the first 6 months of her life, so after I stopped nursing (and stopped eating soup) I started to lose the weight.

fit moms success stories How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?

It took just over 3 months.

fit moms success stories How long have you maintained your weight?

I am able to maintain my physique by incorporating a well balanced diet as well as regular exercise 5 days a week.

fit moms success storiesfit moms success stories How many days per week do you workout now?

I workout 5 days a week.

fit moms success stories What were the most important changes you made to lose the weight?

Even though it was difficult, I had to make sure I was working out and getting enough sleep.

fit moms success stories What was the biggest challenge about losing the weight?

The biggest challenge was actually getting the workouts in and getting an adequate amount of sleep so that my body would transform.

fit moms success stories How has your life changed since losing the weight?

I have had compliments on achieving my goal weight by other single moms who are still struggling to lose the weight.

fit moms success stories What advice can you give moms who don't think they can lose the baby weight?

Just keep at it! If I can do it with extreme challenges (a premature baby and taking care of 2 kids full-time without help) you can too!

Tammy's Fit Moms Tips!


fit moms success stories Fit Moms Tip #1
:

Make sure you are getting enough sleep and drinking enough water.

fit moms success stories Fit Moms Tip #2:

Get to the gym, even if you are feeling tired or your workouts don't end up lasting as long as you'd like. There were many times I would just get to the gym and my daughter would have one of her screaming tantrums and the daycare person at the gym would call me to come get her. At least you are getting yourself (and your kids) in the habit of going.

fit moms success stories Fit Moms Tip #3:

Don't snack on the kids food while you are cooking it.

fit moms success stories Fit Moms Tip #4:

Not everyone will be supportive of the goals you are trying to achieve. Do your best to ignore it.

fit moms success stories Fit Moms Tip #5:

Get your workouts in whenever and whereever you can.
