Can you say “WOW”
I am so proud of how far Shanna has come! Yes maybe it was a bit slow in the beginning but that’s perfectly ok. As mom’s we try to do it all & sometimes we just need to take a deep breathe, slow down & do what’s best for us…taking care of us!

Did Shanna lose the total weight she wanted to from the beginning? No, but eventually she will & what she has accomplished is a complete transformation, burning excess fat & building strong, lean muscle. See my post on Fat vs. Muscle. Exactly what happened with her is real-life. Trying to take care of yourself, to lose the baby weight (remember she had 3 babies in 3 years), eat healthy & exercise. That in itself is a challenge not including traveling with 3 littles, sick littles, & potty training! But in the end she did it & mostly importantly is continuing to keep her healthy habits that were created.
The point being that slow progress is good progress. The slower (to a point) that you lose the weight the more likely it will stay off for good. No “diet’s” they really don’t work. Think about it, if it took you 3 years to put the weight on it’s not going to come off in 3 months! It also shouldn’t take 3 years. Remember your body is different, but good different, after baby(s).
