Getting Back To A Healthy Happy Me

Having my babies are by far my life’s biggest achievements. I am honestly astounded by how incredible the female body is, how it makes it’s transformation to grow, home and then nurture another life is nothing short of a miracle!

After Amelie’s birth, my thyroid took a turn for the worst and I developed Graves Disease. One of the many side effects of having an overactive thyroid function is weight loss. I experienced losing a large amount of weight extremely quickly and so I soon found that my baby bump had vanished and my body other than my thyroid was back to normal in no time at all.

With my second pregnancy, everything seemed to stretch that little bit further, a little quicker than I would have liked! Everyone kept telling me that I was going to have a really large baby as my bump was so big, I measured two weeks ahead all throughout my pregnancy!

But when Morgan arrived weighing in at a beautifully healthy but not so large 7.5 lbs I quickly realised that she was never going to be a “big baby” but that I just had a big belly bump!

Well, this was all the motivation I needed to start getting myself and my body back on track. I’d tried many diets before and granted I lost the weight but I never really enjoyed them as such or had the encouragement I needed to keep on going with them.

The first thing that appealed to me when I discovered The 28 Day Drop-A-Dress Size Method was the offering of motivation, advice and tips. In the past, my downfall was not actually knowing what was giving me the nutrition I needed and was still good for my waistline.

I also loved the idea of dropping a dress size in 28 days by following one, clear path without crash dieting or counting calories. So I decided to give it a go. I was so excited when my 5-day challenge trial pack arrived that I couldn’t wait to get started and actually made up my “test shake” a day early!

Before embarking on the 28-day journey to a “new you” Alison a Rew (The inspiration Husband and Wife duo behind The 28 Day Drop-A-Dress Size Method) ask you to introduce new eating habits into your normal routine.

Once you’ve established what you will snack, lunch and dine on for the five days you’re ready to go! My day started with a delicious Herbalife vanilla shake and a selfie post into our motivation facebook group.

Here Alison would then give us feedback and helpful tips to help us all make healthier dietary choices. It was here that I found myself completely inspired by the other ladies in my group, all of them making that decision to lead healthier, happier lives.

With each day I felt less and less bloated, I had a considerable amount of more energy (this would be down to the amazing Herbalife tea!) and can honestly say I felt lighter! I enjoyed a quick 20-minute workout each night and that was it. No hour long heavy duty gym session over here, because let’s be honest, who really has that kind of time to spend?!

Each day I became more and more confident in my food choices and looked forward to checking in with our group to see what everyone else was eating!

Best dinner ever!

On the fifth and final day of my challenge, I said to Scott “what will I have for breakfast tomorrow without my shake?!” I felt so sad that the five days were up and it was with that, I knew I was hooked and just had to continue! I then went on to implement these subtle changes as well as maintain The 28 Day Method eating strategy in my everyday life.

Just after 7 days of using this clever method I’m back in my size 10 pre-baby jeans and feeling better than ever!

My end goal is in sight and I loved the five-day challenge so much that I’ve just enrolled myself onto my first 28-day challenge! This is where I will drop a dress size by applying the same eating habits as I did within the 5-day challenge.

I feel inspired, motivated and excited about the changes I’m about to make that I know will stay with me for a lifetime! My 28 Day Challenge begins on the 10th of September and I’d love to have you there with me.
