Mother Of Two Under Two Drops 30 Pounds!
I understand that you’re not supposed to worry about your weight when you have this perfect newborn in your arms. I know to expect excess weight after delivery. Suppose a new mother complains to me about her weight. In that case, I quickly respond not to stress – focus on more important things, and you’re so much more than just your weight. Still, I couldn’t escape my anxieties. I tried to push the dissatisfaction aside and redirect my energy elsewhere, but it kept creeping back. My experience with postpartum recovery had me in some alternate reality where I didn’t recognize myself when I looked in the mirror, and I couldn’t adjust accordingly. I was beyond uncomfortable. Once I finished breastfeeding, I decided to begin my committed weight loss journey, and I didn’t want to do it alone. I chose Physician’s Plan Weight Loss + Wellness to join me as my partner.
The nutritional counselors encouraged me to journal my meals so they could get a weekly snapshot and understanding of my macronutrients. This habit shed light that although I was refraining from a high carbohydrates and sugar intake, I was consuming too much fat than protein or fiber. Here I thought that as long as the food was not simply high in carbohydrates or sugar, it was suitable for my diet. From there, I lowered my fat intake (reducing cheese and dairy products), and I felt better. They also provided me with Lipo-C injections to jumpstart the weight loss and boost my energy and metabolism. I started to see results.
However, I didn’t always have a significant weight loss at my weekly weigh-ins. Some weeks I would get discouraged or down on myself if I didn’t see the number I wanted on the scale. The jovial team members at Physician’s Plan never made me feel ashamed or lectured me that I needed to do better. Try harder. They were endlessly optimistic when I would express disappointment with myself. They restored my motivation and hope when I hit plateaus with pep talks. They put my mind at ease with a realistic understanding that this isn’t easy or fast. I won’t always be perfect, but we have to keep moving forward to the end of this journey, where I can start to maintain my weight.
Thank you to Physician’s Plan for the support, tools, and knowledge I needed throughout my weight loss journey to get me where I am now. I am happier and not distracted by negativity, making me a better mother.
