Pre and post baby no. 2 photos PLUS a photo shoot!!!!

Okay so these are my before and after pictures after having my second son I know you all think I look so good and trust me I am thankful for my height too which distributes my excess baggage equally everywhere but as I said in my previous post I have the same body fat % as someone that is 5' it's just that they are more compact than me and look a little more overweight than I do.

March 2009 weighing just over 80kgs AKA 180lbs

So I got into shape after 15 months and began my Fit Yummy Mummy journey.

I then became pregnant with my 3rd baby Mietta when I did this surprise photoshoot for my husband (6 weeks pregnant). And no peeps I am not a model just have a friend called Phil with great hair and make up skills, lighting and a fabulous camera. However I must admit, I kinda did pull it off aye? ;-)

February 2010 total of 25kgs AKA 60lbs LOST!!!!

So there you have it my friends, a journey that I hope never to repeat. Having said that I wouldn't be in the shape I am today if I didn't go down that path. I have learnt a pretty basic rule YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT! So when I used to look down at my muffin top I would wonder "How do I get rid of you?" and then I turn beside me and see an entire block of Cadbury's hazelnut chocolate and a packet of potato chips devoured minutes ago.....that was the old me. This is the new me now and don't get me wrong I do indulge in those things from time to time but I burn it off quick smart so they don't stick around!

Tell me your food struggles, what food types can you not live without?
