Health and Fitness Accomplishment you are Proud of since becoming a mom or when you were a mom-to-be: Since becoming a mom, I have had a roller coaster of health/fitness levels. My biggest accomplishment, health wise, was losing over 100lbs (from my heaviest) and maintaining the weight loss for the past year. I wasn’t actively trying to lose weight while I was breastfeeding the first year, but once that was done, it took me 6-8 months to focus on my nutrition, train for my first half marathon, and lose the remaining 40 pounds. My biggest accomplishment, fitness wise, was training for and running my first full marathon! It was not easy and it took a lot of mental (and physical) strength to get through those hard workouts and the race itself!
Advice for other moms or moms-to-be: 1. Take time for yourself and just breathe. A little time alone can help you gain a little better perspective in all situations. 2. Don’t be too hard on yourself or your body! You made (or will make) a little miracle and it will take a little time and energy to get anywhere close to where you were in the “before” times. Enjoy your days and your growing family!
