FAT PERCENTAGE LOSS
“After the birth of my son Skye, my life was nonstop – multitasking took on a totally new meaning. I’d been active before pregnancy, but I was really overwhelmed in those first few weeks after giving birth. I didn’t even thought about it and felt so stressed. I thought nursing would help burn the calories, but after a month, I still couldn’t tug my jeans up to my hips. Plus, I was breastfeeding and always hungry, so I made sure to eat healthy meals and snacks to get more supply of milk. After two months, I came back to work, it’s hard for me to choose what to wear every day to the office and so I felt less confident.
After four months, I felt miserable about how I looked and I knew I needed to make a change. I was so afraid at the process of getting fit again. Considering my busy schedule, I know I have to find a way to make it work. My girl friend encouraged me to enroll here at Curves and I took this as a sign to lose weight.
This time, I felt prepared and confident to lose the weight after giving birth to Skye. Taking classes at Curves probably had the biggest impact on my slimming journey. I try to work out four to five times a week – since it’s just 30 minutes a day. I love Curves Eastwood, the music is great, and it’s so much fun — it’s like being out with your friends and not at the gym. Since, I started eating a lot more protein, fruits & veggies. Having more high-fiber foods like cereal, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta in my diet made a huge difference. I stopped having hunger spikes during the day. I learned to stop consuming 3-in-1 coffee since I started keeping a bottle of water with me (so I can drink at least 8 to 10 glasses a day).
I want to say thank you for the positive attitude and encouragement from the coaches. You are always encouraging and ‘realistic’ in making me feel like I can accomplish my goals. I love how you all understand what being a mom is about and it is a blessing to get into a fitness program with other women! I feel much stronger and healthier and I look forward to doing the workout every day. I’ve lost lots of inches and pounds in eight months. Many thanks to my coaches, you are all a rockstar!
Don’t be discouraged if the weight doesn’t fall immediately. Think of it instead as a step in building a healthier lifestyle.”
