Talara has lost over 40 pounds since the birth of her second son just a few months ago using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge postnatal workouts. It is safe for moms to start some low impact exercises, generally around 6 weeks after giving birth. It’s best to check with your doctor first especially after a c-section as you may need to wait a bit longer.
Find out below how The Healthy Mommy can help support you through your postpartum stage.
Talara lost 40 pounds in just 3 months
Talara lnnes, 23, is a mom of two sons aged 5 and 4 months.
She has been following The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since the birth of her second son and has lost roughly 40 pounds in around three months.
Talara shares, “I am seeing a lot more energy, my sleep is better and my face a lot clearer and hair and nails, and I am not so bloated anymore, my joints aren’t so sore either.
“I am feeling a lot stronger more confident and more motivated and have more knowledge about what I am putting inside my body.
I do use the app mostly for the low carb food options and snack ideas I love all the postnatal workouts and I am now looking at doing the Stronger workouts.”
Talara’s favourite Healthy Mommy recipes
“My favourite meal is the Chicken laksa and my favourite snack is the Peanut bubble crunch for sure.”
Talara’s tips for other moms
- Drink heaps of water!
- Move every day!
- Always stretch before and after exercise.
Talara’s motivation advice
“When you start thinking bad thoughts about yourself or your food or exercise stop your self and just reverse it, so instead of thinking oh god I only walked for 20mins, think hell yeah I did 20 mins and tomorrow I’ll try 25 mins, something is always better than nothing.
“And never think if you “cheated” is a bad thing, it’s normal one bite or one “bad” meal will not hurt just keep going and keep the good choices coming.
“The Healthy Mommy community is my saviour feel of so much support and tips and hints and so many inspirational story’s.”
