At age 43 I got pregnant and packed on the weight at a frightening rate. At least to me it was frightening. I’d always imagined being one of those pregnant women who just got a belly and looked so cute. But no, not me. I lost my ankles and my chin, everything puffed out and retained water, my breasts turned into a triple D size and things just got whale and woddle like. By the last couple of weeks I felt like I was going to explode.
But I gave birth to a super healthy baby boy. My incubation work was done - and done good I must say for the 44 year old body that birthed him.
But then came the mammoth task of shedding all that weight.
My baby was 9lb14ozs, so kinda big, but not nearly 60lbs extra big?! Surprisingly most of it dropped away quickly... apart from the last 15lbs.
But it wasn’t just extra pounds that was weighing me down, it was nutrient depletion and sleep deprivation too. My hormones weren’t balancing and my emotions were all over the place.
I had given every last piece of me to this baby and now the body that was meant to keep him safe was a malnourished, weak and emotional wreck that was suffering from adrenal fatigue, and total overwhelm.
I got a handle on it with Yoga and meditation, as well as some kick arse Acupuncture. But I still needed more.
I broke a five year hiatus from caffeine, only to be abruptly reminded that my adrenals don’t do that shit. And I hit a big fat wall.
Then the Goddess redirected me back to food. Nutrient dense, gmo free, pure, premium, organic, SUPER food. And I launched myself into a 40 Day Transformation.... the me on the right is twenty days into that transformation as of today and already lingering inflammation has mostly gone, back pain has pretty much disappeared, I lost 8lbs, I don’t crave sugar anymore (that one had WAY out of control with all the other imbalances), I’m sleeping better than I ever have - and so is my baby, I have energy and vitality again, the brain fog has gone and I’m happy again. I’d love to share my resources with you if you want to know more comment below. A girls gotta share a good thing when she finds it #40daytransformation#superfood#backtome 💋❣️❤️
