A couple weeks ago, we ended our 8 week session of the Body After Baby challenge. I created this challenge after my son was born when I was (still am) working on getting my body after baby back! The support and encouragement from one mom to a next is so important in reaching your fitness and health goals.
My baby turned six months old just a few days after the Body After Baby Challenge. Regardless of whether or not I “win” the contest, I feel like I’ve already won! Body After Baby was just what I needed to kick my tush into gear and lose the last few pregnancy pounds. I’m still overweight, and still working on myself, but I’m now down to my pre-pregnancy weight. Of course, winning the actual tangible prize would certainly be wonderful too! Money is extremely tight for us right now, like I’m sure it is for everyone else, and what better prize than being able to buy something useful – cloth diapers?!

Honestly, If I didn’t win this challenge I would still feel like a winner. It gave me the motivation and support to finally take the initiative to loose weight.I lost a total of 18 inches, 8 from my waist and 4 from my hips. My goal for the Challenge was to loose 15 lbs.I ended up losing 26.3 lbs. I went from 240.1 lbs to 216.8 lbs.I started out wearing a plus size 20 pair of jeans. The other day, I bought a size 14 pair of pants.While winning the challenge and the prize would be great, I feel like a winner already.I still have aways to go to reach my ultimate goal, but the challange has already started me on “a journey to a new me”.Thank you Samantha and all the mommies who particiapted in the challenge.
Hi my name is Harmony and I am a first time mother to Xander who is almost a year old. For me this challenge really meant keep up with my promise to myself and to my family about getting back into shape. Working with all of you to keep me on track throughout the weeks really made me accountable and the numbers show my results. I might not have lost the most weight or earned the most points but as far as my health is concerned I am a winner in this challenge because I really make the scale move for the first time in several months. And it didn’t just stop at the end date for me I am down to 172 which is another 2lbs since the challenge ended.
I would would like to be voted the winner of this challenge because it’s made a huge difference in my life and I’m going to stick to it. I also just started cloth diapering my son and I could really use some more cloth diapers, lol. Thank you all for your support and for your vote.
