Belinda’s New Post-Baby Body

There are three times in a woman’s life when she is most vulnerable to weight gain: these are during puberty, pregnancy and menopause.  Each of these are also milestones in a woman’s life where hormone activity is rapidly changing, hence it’s no coincidence that all three can play havoc with your weight.  Belinda Cruickshank is a no exception – after the birth of her two sons, she found that her weight had ballooned.  However, her strong willpower and help of The Natural Way saw her get back the body she wanted.

In January 2013, Belinda decided that enough was enough – her youngest son was three, and she realized that she was never going to lose weight on her own.  She knew that she would need support throughout her weight loss journey which led her to make an appointment at The Natural Way so she could get started.

Belinda lost weight from the first week and her great results each week gave her the motivation she needed to keep going.  Belinda quickly noticed that her clothes were getting much more comfortable (more like getting too big) and it was then she realized how much her weight controlled how she felt.  With each kilogram she lost, the happier and more confident she became.

Belinda’s change in diet also helped her to see that you really are what you eat – that is, ‘if you eat good food, it naturally makes you feel good’.  Belinda’s new attitude and dietary changes saw her lose 25.2kg in 30 weeks and she still can’t believe how good she feels!  She knows that her weight is something she will always have to watch, however, the education gained via The Natural Way program has empowered Belinda to be in control of her weight (rather than letting her weight control her).

Losing weight is not an impossible dream – even if you are a young mum like Belinda, who has to cook for her family.  The Natural Way has a wide-range of family friendly eating plans that are designed to ‘fit in’ with everyone.  No need to eat your own special ‘diet’ meals:  your family will love our meals AND you will lose weight.  Perfect!   Call your nearest clinic on 1300 SLIMMER (1300 754663) and book your FREE appointment to find out more about how The Natural Way works.
