How long did it take you to start to see results?
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
How long have you maintained your weight?
A couple of months.
What made you decide to get back into shape after your pregnancy?
I didn’t like feeling fat. I lost my confidence. The father of my son lost interest in me and starting cheating on me.
What were the most important changes you made to lose the weight?
The choices of food I ate.
What were the most challenging things about losing the weight?
Eating clean and making time for my son. After work I pick up my son from the day care then take him home to feed him. After that I take him with me to the gym where there is a day care service.
What types of cheat foods did you crave during your pregnancy?
Chinese food, anything greasy and oily, salty.
Did you exercise during your pregnancy (what types of exercises)?
On the first and second trimester. I was still training at the gym. I do my normal strength training with lighter weights.
How many days per week do you workout now?
How has your life changed since losing the weight?
I gained back my confidence. Since the break up between me and my son’s dad early this year, I thought everything doesn’t go my way. I decided to compete in a local bikini model show. I didn’t make it to top five (out of 22) but losing weight was already an accomplishment.
What advice can you give moms about losing the baby weight?
It is hard but it is not impossible.
