25 pound weight gain in 2020

Jul 13, 2021

It’s so easy to talk about pregnancy weight loss, but we don’t often think about how we gained the weight in the first place. 


Many in our society today use excuses and justifications to eat more than you need during pregnancy… maybe you’ve heard or thought some of these things, too. Like…


“Baby wants a cupcake,” or 

“I’m eating for two,” or 

“I’m going to gain weight anyways; might as well enjoy myself.”  

Or maybe you dieted so frequently that being pregnant was like your free hall pass to eat anything and everything you wanted. 


In today’s episode, I take you behind the scenes of my 25 pound pregnancy weight gain in 2020 and explain what I was doing and thinking that allowed me to only gain 25 pounds. 


There’s no judgement or shame if you gained more (or less) weight, but we need to be honest with ourselves if we want to lose weight in a healthy way (physically and psychologically). 


And as it always does, the “magic” comes from our thoughts. 


What’s in this episode:

  • My personal weight gain story. 
  • The #1 most important question I asked myself every day.
  • Prenatal nutrition and how to eat to fuel your baby’s development.
  • How to set yourself up for better postpartum weight loss.


Ready to end emotional eating, lose excess weight and feel amazing in your body? 

Head to where I share the counterintuitive reason why all your attempts to restrict food over the years has actually led to WEIGHT GAIN, and the mental “switch” you need to flick that’ll let you drop lbs, without sacrificing wine, carbs or the foods you love.
