Mom shares one of the biggest things the Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has done for her is to help manage her anxiety of 13 years without medication.
“I’ve lived with anxiety since I was 16 years old and never thought I’d be okay without medication.”
Mom beats anxiety without medication thanks to the Healthy Mommy
Bree Thompson, 29, is a new mom to a 1-year-old boy. She has lost 50 lbs with the Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge after she became a member about halfway through her pregnancy.
Bree shares, “I had a rough start to my weight loss journey due to experiencing Postpartum Depression and an infection in my C-Section wound after not being stitched up correctly.
“But then I was constantly tired, grumpy, had no energy, was struggling to get up and down off the couch and floor and was weighing 288 pounds, I knew I needed to make a change.
“I now had this beautiful little guy depending on me to make him happy and healthy. To play with him, make him laugh. And to be his role model.
“So I threw myself into the Healthy Mommy lifestyle. I have now lost 50 pounds with the Healthy Mommy, 15 pounds have been lost since May this year.
“I’ve lost a lot of pounds and a lot of inches but what I have gained is so much more impressive.
“I have the energy to play with my son and enjoy life. I’m happy every single day. I can move more easily than I have been able to in over a year. I’ve become proud of the woman I am today instead of wishing my life away and wanting to be someone else.”
Beating anxiety thanks to Healthy Mommy
Bree says one of the biggest things that Healthy Mommy has done is to make her capable of managing her anxiety without medication.
“I’ve lived with anxiety since I was 16 years old and never thought I’d be okay without medication. I am now all about the Healthy Mommy and super passionate about this lifestyle.”
Bree’s favourite recipes
Bree says her favourite Healthy Mommy meal is the Slow-Cooked Beef Nachos (available on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge) and her favourite snack is Dark Chocolate and Herbal Tea. “I have both on a regular basis!”
Bree’s top 3 tips
• Meal prep every Sunday to set yourself for the following week! Even if you only prep your snacks.
• DO NOT compare your journey to anyone else’s! We are all different and our results will ALWAYS differ from someone else.
• If you do have a bad day, don’t punish yourself! We are all human and we all have bad days, just dust yourself and refocus.
Bree says to any Mom’s out there who feel like they are struggling, “I promise you that you can do this! I know how hard it can be to be heavily overweight, not loving who you are and being a mum (especially a new mom) but if you don’t push through the struggle, nothing is ever going to change or get better and you’ll keep sitting there wishing you could make that change.”
“You can make that change!”
Bree adds, “Once you start you just need to keep going. I stumbled more times than I can count and thought to myself “omg am I actually getting any smaller? Is anything good actually happening?” But you just need to keep going!
“No matter how many times you fall or what negative thoughts you have, you need to keep going because changes are happening even if you can’t see them and you ARE becoming that woman/mother/partner/daughter that you want to be!”
“I’ve tried every diet imaginable, but nothing compares to The Healthy Mommy! It really is the only way to live! It’s not a fad diet filled with false promises, promoted by fitness models.”
Healthy Mommy Community
Bree says Healthy Mommy is a lifestyle change, one that you can continue living every day of your life! “The women we are aspiring to be like are REAL MOM’S with the REAL before and after photos and with a story that we can relate to as mothers!
“The women you see on TV or read about in magazines or on the Healthy Mommy website, are the women you are communicating with every day in the Healthy Mommy community! Sometimes you even get to meet your role models! And I think that’s pretty amazing!”
If you feel anxious and or depressed, we advise you to seek help from a friend, a GP or counsellor.
