Sascha loses 32kg and takes control of her and her family’s health

After the birth of my son, my body had changed so much. I loved being pregnant, I felt great, everything was in proportion but once my baby was born I was left feeling so far from my usual self.

Poor decisions led to poorer decisions

I overindulged in both my pregnancies by choice, but it made the aftermath harder.

After my first was born, I resorted to a quick 30 day shake fix where a cleanse day meant no eating…and I lost weight fast.

I continued doing these as meal replacements, which were very low in calories. I was hungry, tired, and exercising a lot without supporting my body with the right things.

I would cut back on food more and more each week. I had the 1200 calorie thing stuck in my head and it was doing me no favours as I was eating well under that amount anyway.

Although I loved being so ‘tiny’ people started to ask me if I was OK and really I wasn’t.

My second pregnancy

I started eating more and more and not always the right stuff.

I’m a treat kind of girl and I don’t know when to stop. I am actually thankful for this. We had been trying for over a year to fall pregnant and this did not happen until I had put on 5kgs.

Overeating during second pregnancy

My body continued to crave fuel, no matter what the quality.

My over-eating continued into my pregnancy, so over indulging for a second time left me shocked after the birth of my daughter in August 2016.

I weighed myself about 4 weeks after my daughter was born and was 98kgs. I knew I was over the 100kgs* mark before birth so I wasn’t too surprised, but in the same breath what I saw in the mirror was still a massive shock.

My motivation to lose weight

My motivation to lose weight was to feel myself again, to throw on clothes each morning and not huff and puff and check myself in the mirror 100 times to make sure I didnt look ‘too big’.

I wanted my energy back, I wanted my old clothes to fit and I wanted to feel free at the beach with my kids.

Joining The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weigh Loss Challenges

I had started following the Healthy Mummy Facebook support group and signed up to the 28 Weight Loss Day Challenges.

I followed the Challenges for 2 months to a T! At the time it felt so slow, but looking back I got results very quickly.

My biggest focus after having ‘starved’ myself for so long was to lose weight the right way and in a way that I could maintain long term.

To do this I realised I needed to be eating more. Today with the Healthy Mummy program I’m proudly eating upwards of 2000 and losing weight!

I also incorporate Healthy Mummy Smoothies into my day and have them when I need breakfast on the run.
