I needed to change. If you know me personally you know that I am an overachiever.
I do what I have to do and go above and beyond when I am passionate about something. If I say I am gonna do something chances are, I am already midway there.
Pregnancy Changes Everything
A year and a half ago I got pregnant! And not just pregnant I was pregnant with twins.
During the pregnancy, I gained 50lbs. I weighed 205lbs 2 days before the C-section. Then the babies came boy and girl both very healthy.
And I was not the same person. I have always been very active try to eat, live a healthy lifestyle clean eating working out.
But this time around was different I lost my self after having the babies because it was just about these two little people plus my 6-year-old daughter.
There was no time for me, anymore, I was lost.
There was no time for me, anymore, I couldn’t work out and my body was definitely not looking the same. The babies were 4 months old when I decided to make the change.
I Could Not Go To The Gym, So The Gym Came To Me
Since I was short on time and needed to make this work (plus I hate going to the gym) I signed up for Beach Body on demand.
This was a very wise decision since all I have to do to this date is just choose the program I want and get ready. I just love this!
After trying many diets and so and lose weight fast scams I finally found something that worked and got me healthier.
In the sixteen months since my twins were born, I have managed to slowly but surely drop my pregnancy weight to my goal weight 160lbs (my happy place).
I gained 50 pounds during my pregnancy and I’m not going lie, I had moments of panic that I’d never been able to lose it all.
I had these little battles in my head the evil voices we all have telling me “you are fat, and will never look the way you did before”
I had hoped to gain 25-30 pounds liked during my first pregnancy but found that just wasn’t possible for me.
Despite being very active during my pregnancy meaning I was walking up and downstairs and just going for walks.
Be Realistic And Accept Where You Are Now So You Can Find Out Where You Want To Be Tomorrow
I still gain a good amount of weight. But I was not worried so much because I figured I was growing two little humans inside and all I wanted was for them to be safe and healthy.
Right before my babies were born, I was weighing 205lbs. For the love of God!, I have never been there before but I understood it was part of the process.
A week after the babies arrived I went to the doctor for a checkup and I was weighing 179lbs which I was happy about. But this was only the beginning of my weight loss journey.
The Keto Diet
After 4 months I decided to start taking care of myself and workout and took on a journey I never thought possible.
I started the Ketogenic diet which by the way if you are Spanish it very hard since most of our meals have CARBS.
I started to read books and study how this diet or better said way of living works and fell in love with it. The benefits are endless and the results are amazing.
So I was working out 4-5 times per week at home and eating a very low carb diet.
The results were so amazing that I decided to help other moms just like me struggling with weight loss and inspiration to become a better version of themselves.
I became a weight loss coach. And I love it. I get mesmerized by the changes and transformation I see on women just like you that just need a little support.
I asked one of my clients when I was just getting started how much do you think my coaching is worth to you?
Her answer left me speechless…..
“There is no price for what you have done for me because it 21 days I have lost more weight than I ever thought possible and the way I feel it’s just priceless.”
My heart jumped because I was so happy and excited.
Then I thought what if I could help more women feel this way?
How can I change the world, one woman, at the time?
I am a nurse, so care for people in their worse state of health, so how can I help women be in the best health of their lives?
And all of these questions led me to Weight loss Coaching!
We as women tend to take care of everybody in the house and always leave ourselves for later…well I am here to tell you now that later is now.
You need to start taking care of yourself so you can take of the rest of the family.
My Dad used to say something when I was little and it didn’t make sense at the time he said
“I need to eat first, so I can go to work and feed you all” well, I thought a father was supposed to prioritize their kids I thought.
But now I understand the analogy. I need to take better care of myself so I can have the strength to care for others.
