After my son was born, I struggled to get rid of my baby weight. When Spencer was about six, I was talking to a friend about my "baby weight" and how I really needed to lose it. Well, she bluntly told me that my "baby" was 6 and it wasn’t baby weight anymore. Oof!
I had always thought of myself as fit and healthy, so this hit me really hard. I had to take a step back and wonder: Was this my new reality?
This wasn’t the body I had worked so hard for, and I wasn’t where I wanted to be. What I was doing—emotional eating, working out harder to offset the emotional eating, and feeling guilty ALL the time—clearly wasn’t working.
I wanted to be able to run around with my kiddo, not just be a watcher on the sidelines. I wanted to be around to meet my grandkids. I needed to have enough energy to build the life and business I wanted.
If you’re struggling with your health the way I was, it's okay. It doesn't have to be this way forever. I’ve got a solution for you.
See, I knew that in order to successfully lose that not-baby-weight once and for all, I’d have to get smarter about my everyday lifestyle choices. I knew a lot about food and a lot about fitness—I was a lifelong athlete and even a personal trainer! But I’m a busy person. I didn’t want to spend my little free time weighing and measuring my food.
And I didn’t want to feel like I was on a diet.
I wanted to have it all, so I dug in to figure out how I could lose the weight, eat real food, and not give up my glass of wine with dinner, without feeling like I needed 26 hours in a day to make it happen.
Thankfully, I figured it out—not only did I lose the weight, but I've kept up with this lifestyle for YEARS now. It completely changed how I felt about myself, how I felt in my skin, and most importantly, helped me RECLAIM MY LIFE, one bite at a time.
