“Today I would like to talk to you all about the importance of SELF BELIEF,” says Rae.

“The biggest battle is the mental one. My self worth is a work in progress. I have lost 20kgs and am wearing a comfortable size 8 but there are days, fewer and further apart now, where I question my worth.

“Some days I look in the mirror and find it difficult to see the healthy and fit mum that I have become. My mind is taking a bit longer to catch up with my body.

“There are days when the reflection looking back at me is the old, overweight, unhappy women of a few months back and it takes a lot of mental strength to see past those memories.”

Rae’s 3 top tips for staying positive while losing weight:

1. Take your time

“There is no race, it really doesn’t matter if you get to your goals in a month or a year. What matters is that you have cemented better practices to ensure that this sticks as a lifestyle.”

2. Everything in moderation

“If losing weight means missing out on living your life then you have missed the point!

The Healthy Mummy teaches you balance and moderation and encourages you to eat the cake at time but to then come back to your better choices.”

3. Be kind to yourself

“It doesn’t chastise you for going off plan, it simply encourages you to remember the way you felt when you were eating good clean foods. It’s passive aggressive like that!

“Knowing that you are perfect right here in the now but that you are aiming for a healthier version of your perfect self is the best motivation that you can ever have.”
