In 2009, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. After 16 days in the NICU, we got to bring him home.
I never lost my baby weight, after having him and I went on to spend five years miserable, depressed and overweight. I knew I was heavier than I should be. As a teenager, I had a small frame and I wanted nothing more than to be that size once again.
I tried so many things. I tried things that worked before, watching what I ate, tried to become a runner, even turned to the HCG diet, eating a measly 500 calories a day. Nothing worked.
After having my second child, I set out for a better life for myself and my children. I committed to losing the weight, and for good.
At 5 months postpartum, I cut out gluten and began eating more whole foods. What I really lacked was energy, I was exhausted before lunch.
I started on a Herbalife nutrition plan and ended up losing 40 pounds, 5 dress sizes and I have never been happier. The simple meal plan allowed me to gain energy and gradually increase my activity, and the weight fell off a pound at a time.
I make it my mission to help other women come out of hiding, to stop hiding behind their weight and live healthier, happier lives. Herbalife Nutrition has allowed me to do that, while working around my kids schedules.
