Learning to love herself

Though she wasn’t at her biggest in the first picture, Christie says she was definitely at her unhappiest.

“I was in a very bad place mentally and needed something to pull me out of what felt like a bottomless pit of self loathing, hate and disgust!”

“It wasn’t my weight, it wasn’t my body it wasn’t even my appearance that was slowly destroying my soul, it was the fact that I didn’t care about any of those things that was killing me.” 

Christie says that by not caring enough about herself enough to look after herself, her kids and relationships suffered and made her life hard.

“I became a shell of a human being that just existed because I had to! I didn’t love life I didn’t even like it and I was desperate to find myself again.”

That was the cue for Christie to type ‘How to learn to love myself’ into Google. One search led to another and another and then The Healthy Mummy popped up.

Christie says, “I had heard through friends about this program but now I was seeing it for myself I knew what I had to do!”

Fast forward to today and Christie has lost 17kgs, found herself, learned to love herself and learned how love being a mum again without neglecting herself, fantastic work!

And if you need one more dose of inspiration, here’s what Christie has to say:

“Find yourself ladies and learn to love you.”

We are so so so proud of you Christie, congratulations with everything you superstar!
