Last year my weight had reached an all time high. I had just given birth to Baby L, and had Little J at home too. So, two little boys, 13.5 months apart. I was so happy to have my beautiful babies, but I was completely unhappy about my weight. I was a solid 100 pounds heavier than when I married my husband. Yikes!
So, I made a commitment to myself that I was going to lose all of the baby weight that I had gained throughout my pregnancies, and get back to my pre-baby body. Not only my weight, but also my overall health. I knew that the condition my body was in after having children would not allow me to have a full, healthy life, and be able to keep up with two little boys.
After giving birth, I waited for medical clearance from my doctor to start a weight loss and exercise plan. I also waited for the holiday season to be over so I could fully enjoy myself…and the heaps of amazingly delicious Italian food that my family makes!
On January 2, 2014 I started at a new gym. To tell you the truth, It was kind of hard (ok, very hard?!) at first to get back into the swing of working out. I needed some extra motivation so I signed up for their weight loss challenge. I was weighed in weekly, and given tons of support to lose the weight. Honestly, I really didn’t expect to lose all of the weight that I had gained, but I figured that losing any amount of weight was better than not trying at all.
Once I started the weight loss challenge, I got really into it. I saw the scale starting to go down, and I was so excited! I actually ended up winning the weight loss challenge! I lost 33 pounds during that time. I still wasn’t done, but it was an amazing start!
In the following months, with a combination of a very healthy diet and consistent exercise, I successfully lost a total of 95 pounds (counting from the time I gave birth to Baby L in September 2013). I was thrilled at the results!
Losing that much weight is serious business. I knew I had to take excellent care of my body with healthy foods, including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and tons of water. In order to keep my immune system supported while my body was undergoing major changes, I turned to Ester-C. Ester-C is an awesome patented 24 hour immune support Vitamin C formula. I still use it daily post-weight loss, too!
I take just one tablet (1000mg) and I can count on it all day, every day. It’s very gentle on my stomach and chemical solvent-free, which makes me very happy.
Now, I feel amazing and I can be the fun, active, happy, healthy mom I want to be.
Heading into 2015, I know that Ester-C will continue to support my immune system as I maintain my weight loss and lifestyle.
