The Sonya Davison weight loss story
Sonya still gets flooded with questions on how she managed to lose all that pregnancy weight so quickly (Is it just good genes?). Apparently, she had her own share of insecurities when it came to getting back into shape after delivery.
Sonya reveals on Instagram, “A year ago, I made my Husband promise to still love my body after I gave birth. During my pregnancy, I mentally prepared myself for a post-twins baby body.”
“I, (like many) thought that it wouldn’t be possible to get my body back after pregnancy (especially after seeing my ginormous twin belly). I was wrong.”
“I would come to realise that a combination of factors would lead to me losing my pregnancy weight within just 3 weeks of giving birth.”
A lot of you asked me – how was I able to get my body back? Sorry it’s taken so long to finally answer this.
- Pre-Pregnancy: I had strong core muscles before I became pregnant (from HIIT home workouts).
- Pregnancy Weight-gain: I only gained what I needed to. You don’t literally have to “eat for 2” when you’re pregnant. I gained mostly on my tummy, so I only had to lose that extra weight, which is a whole lot easier than the whole body.
- Staying Active: I walked A LOT while I was pregnant. Staying active while pregnant is beneficial in so many ways. I would walk for 2-3 hours every other day and this kept my metabolism up.
- Breastfeeding: I breastfeed exclusively. When you breastfeed your stomach contracts which helps your uterus shrink quicker – times that by 2 (preemie babies that fed hourly) and you have the perfect storm.”
“Every persons body is different but this is what worked for me. Having said that, losing the weight was just the first step.”
“I had lost a lot of my muscle tone in my tummy which meant, one meal, and it would all hang out again till the next morning. At 3 months post-partum I bought this “goals” bikini and began a simple 20 min home workout routine (HIIT) with hubby and the muscle reconstruction began!”
This yummy mummy stays fit by eating healthy and leading a very active lifestyle (daily walks, weekly hikes, swimming etc). Being a breastfeeding mum herself (and she intends to do so, until the kids turn 2), she advises that, “If you are breastfeeding, it’s important and safest to lose weight gradually by healthy eating.”
Well mums, wasn’t that an inspiring story? We’d love to hear YOUR stories…let us know in the comments below!
