Time for another Transformation Tuesday! I love Tuesdays for this very reason! Today’s story comes from a woman named Shawn. The story of a stay-at-home mom with food struggles. Here is Shawn’s story…
“My name is Shawn and I am mom to three little ones. I have always struggled with my weight, through high school and college, using unhealthy diets to lose weight. After I was married in 2004, I slowly began to gain weight. It was really when I began having kids that my weight and bad health got out of control. Over the last 6 years of having babies, I struggled with post partum depression and anxiety. I turned to food to help with the sadness and stress. I went from 200 lbs to 340 lbs in those 6 years. My family would eat out 5 days a week and I was a junk food addict, eating bags of candy at night. It felt like there was no way to get back on track.
Then in March 2013, when my youngest was 6 months old, I saw a video online by a mom who had struggled with her weight and post partum depression. She had lost 60 lbs doing Chalean Extreme and drink Shakeology. I was truly inspired and decided to buy it and commit. My husband jumped on board with eating healthy and running. Within 3 months, I had lost 48 lbs. I decided to do the program again and lost another 35 lbs during the following 3 months for a total of 83 lbs lost during the 6 months. I continued with working out and eating right doing P90X and lost another 17 lbs.
The first after image of me in the peach tank was taken following that.
The second picture, of me in the dress, is a most recent picture.
I have lost a total of 108 lbs and feel amazing. My husband has lost 60 lbs. We have completely changed our health and our lives. Our marriage was hurting and we were so unhappy and life is now completely different, full of love, support, and fun with our kids. We have made our health a priority and plan to continue working hard to lose weight and be healthy. I have a page where I share more of my story and pictures at www.facebook.com/settingtheexample.
