Transformation of the Day: Rachel lost 65+ pounds. After giving birth, she wanted to breastfeed. Due to her daughter’s various food allergies, she had to change her eating habits to make breastfeeding work. Making those changes and walking led to weight loss. Check out her story.
Last year, I gave birth to my daughter, and I weighed 230 pounds when I left the hospital. (My height is 5’3″.) My daughter was born with a lot of food allergies. I wanted to nurse her, so I decided to eat according to her allergies.
I don’t eat anything that contains dairy, eggs, gluten, soy, seafood, or nuts. Making these changes, along with walking for exercise, has allowed me to lose a significant amount of weight.
My daughter just turned one year old. I plan to eat this way indefinitely. It has caused me to have fewer migraines, less stomach issues, and of course, it allows me to support her diet.
Now, I work out five times a week, walking at least a mile. In terms of getting results and losing weight, I would say that 90 percent was diet.
I started my journey in July 2018 at 230 lbs and am now under 165 pounds.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that no matter how many setbacks you face, you have to keep going. Each day is fresh, with no mistakes.
My advice for other women who want to lose weight is to start now! Don’t wait until Monday. Just do it.
