SPOTLIGHT ON: Emerald Coach Chrissy Edmonds
Most new moms have spent SOME time trying to figure out how to lose baby weight fast! Dare 2 Dream coach Chrissy Edmonds was in the same boat. She has come so far and is truly dedicated to helping others realize their potential, just as she has! Here is her story of losing weight quickly after pregnancy the healthy way after going about it all wrong after her first:
Constantly Wondering How to Lose Baby Weight…
“I am a single mom of 2 wonderful kids! My son Noah is 9 yrs old and my daughter Zoey is 4 yrs old now. I was always skinny before kids and it never mattered what I ate, but then I had my babies and gained so much weight! I weighed roughly 105-110 before kids. I played sports all the time and yes, ate whatever I wanted too! After my son was born I gained so much weight! I cried everyday and just hated the way I looked! I couldn’t fit into anything! I weighed 153, which was HORRIBLE for me–especially mentally! I was on a desperate search of how to lose baby weight. I starved myself and didn’t exercise much. It took me three years to even feel somewhat better.
Then I got pregnant with my second child and walked everyday and did what I could to try and exercise. After Zoey was born I was determined to get back into shape and even more so than before. I saw an infomercial for P90X. I didn’t have time to go to the gym! I said to myself I can do that and contacted a friend on Facebook that I had known my whole life because I saw he posted something about it. If it would help with how to lose baby weight, then I was in! It was actually his wife, my now coach, Jessica Nelson that got me started. Now, I have completely changed my diet and I exercise at least 6-7 days a week doing something! I started with P90X and drank Shakeology daily. When I saw my results from P90X I wanted to help others who suffered like I did! Want to know how to lose baby weight? I can help! I became a coach in 2011 just for the discount (25% off!) but didn’t take the business serious until 2012. I have lost 41 pounds to date and am in the best shape of my life!! I will turn 35 years old July 20th and LOVE MY LIFE NOW!”
