Mom overcomes bi-polar medication and loses 88 lbs*
The key to weight loss is more than simply eating better and exercising more. It’s also about staying focused and positive.
After suffering from bipolar disorder and weight gain from the prescribed medication, Ryann Reid decided to sign up to The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
She has now lost 88 lbs and developed a healthy relationship with food and exercise. She is happier than ever and says, “I am so proud of myself and I am thankful that The Healthy Mommy has allowed me to find myself again”.
Ryann says, “This isn’t the first time that I have lost a large amount of weight. The joys of childbearing meant that 99 lbs was more than happy to settle on me.”
“Following giving birth to my son, I was able to drop 33 lbs*. However, not too long after I was faced with having to manage my Bipolar disorder. The medications given to me were causing me to gain weight. Before I knew it, my post-baby weight was creeping back on. As I gained the weight, I was becoming more depressed about the way that I looked.”
“My relationship with food was also horrible. From eating no food to eating huge amounts of food – I knew I had to create a healthier relationship with food. That’s when I stumbled across The Healthy Mommy.”
“I began to read through some of the posts on the Support Group and knew that this could be the answer.”
“Eating healthy didn’t have to be hard, but I let it be.”
“I started following The Healthy Mommy’s meals and recipes on the blog. I was shocked by how good they were. Before I knew it I had incorporated the Healthy Mommy lifestyle into my life, but most importantly my family’s life and joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.“
“I also started to notice that my husband was losing weight (he has actually lost over 44 lbs). I knew this would change our lives.”
“My next step was to start exercising. Mostly weight training. Again, it has made a major impact.”
“The Healthy Mommy helped me transition from an unhealthy, destructive lifestyle to a more active and healthy lifestyle. The Healthy Mommy isn’t about eating minimal amounts rather it is about fueling my body for the lifestyle that I am living.”
“I have seen over 88 lbs* gone and 40 inches disappear. I am so proud of myself and I am thankful that the Healthy Mommy has allowed me to find myself again.”
“In regards to weight loss, you honestly and truly need to want it; you can’t just tell yourself you do. Find that part of you that wants to lose the weight and never let her go.”
“My advice is to never give up and support one another. The Healthy Mommy Support Group has certainly always kept me motivated.”
So glad to hear you’re happier and healthier Ryann, keep up your awesome work!
