LOVE is looking and feeling great in a bikini one year after giving birth. I have been back to Lithe now for almost 8 months and have watched my body transform back to my pre-mama self. I have to admit I see more definition in my arms, legs, back, butt and abs now than I did before getting pregnant!!! What a GREAT feeling! I want to Thank You and all the instructors for their encouragement and inspiration in this program.
For many women it is hard to imagine gaining weight and loosing the body shape they worked so hard to have before getting pregnant. I have to admit I was one of those women. Before my pregnancy I wasn't practicing Lithe regularly so I didn't stick with it during my pregnancy, but continued my yoga practice and swam daily. I maintained a healthy diet throughout my pregnancy and ate A LOT of food. I wanted to give my baby all the nutrients I could offer. With that said, the pounds packed on but it was for the baby. I watched my body shape change and embraced it with love and kindness. Forty weeks later we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Bayla Rose.
It wasn't until Bayla was six months old that I knew it was time for me to get my body back. I was nursing at the time and could not lose my last 10 pounds of baby weight. Being a stay at home mom didn't offer me a lot of time to myself so I made a commitment in August that I was going to Lithe at least 2 days a week at 6am before Bayla or Brian (my husband) got up. Was I crazy?! I was still up nursing at midnight and again at 2am, but those 6am classes were my savior. Lithe was my outlet to feel great and socialize with other women without having my baby on my hip.
Thank you for jumpstarting my motherhood in a fit, hip and healthy way.
