My ‘Before’ photo… 

These pictures kinda want to make me cry, especially the one from behind! But this is about being real rather than Instagram perfect. I’m 5 weeks post-partum and will soon embark on a proper nutrition plan. 

My nutritionist has all the above stats along with my current (very honest) eating habits and will hopefully magic up a plan that is both nutritious and time saving. 

Progress on weight loss has been slower than expected and I’m currently averaging 1lb a week. I believe this is because I’m breastfeeding and holding on to more fat stores. Also, because I am breastfeeding, I don’t want to do any extreme diet that could cause my milk supply to fuck up. 

Next week I’ll visit my dr and see if I can start back to ‘proper exercise’ and by this I mean running and full on Crossfit. I do really think it’ll make a huge difference to weight loss and overall body shape.

In the meantime, I’m continuing to complete 10,000 steps per day as well as the BirthFit ‘Queen in Training’ program. I really do hope that my patience will pay off in the end, because right now every pound of weight loss is requiring huge amounts of effort! 



  1. This is actually pretty neat, blogging about postpartum weight loss. Something that I am working on myself. It isn’t easy when you’re a mommy and have a baby to feed and take care of. But any bit of weight loss is a success, even the small losses.
    Good luck! 🙂
