When I had my kids close together, I gained 55 pounds.
I was slowly losing the weight (very slowly).
Then I was hit with very bad vertigo (4 months postpartum), and was unable to walk and out of work for almost 4 months.
Eventually, I was back on the treadmill and running 4 times per week.
Then we finally received the diagnosis of Autism for our son, which allowed us to receive specialized therapy everyday (ABA Therapy 6 hours/day).
Our lives have become therapy, appointments and stress.
I continued to run, but our meals consisted of take out and frozen meals from Trader Joe’s (and lots of wine).
I was tired, sluggish and just feeling so unhealthy.
You can’t out exercise a very bad diet.
Along came The 21 Day Fix and Autumn.
Thank you Autumn.
I started cooking all my food, measuring all food and doing my daily workout.
I cut out all alcohol, detoxed sugar and processed foods.
I am in my pre pregnancy clothes! 50 pounds gone so far 🙂
I have had a recent set back dealing with the death of my brother, my only sibling. However, he was so proud of me for losing the weight that I know he’d be angry if his death was the cause of me quitting or gaining it back. So I am slowly getting my motivation back and will keep living the healthy lifestyle I created for myself.
Also, recently, our daughter was diagnosed Autistic…so our lives are even more hectic.
It has been a struggle since July when I herniated disks in a work injury.
Bi-weekly physical therapy and a numb right leg.
As I recover, I’ll get back on track!
