Bikini Bound 1 year Post Baby!

So there I am on the left - 4 months post-baby waiting for breast feeding to magically take the weight off. Some of you may have read my post when I first started out in my quest for health - HERE.  I was so unhappy with the way I looked and felt guilty for feeling this way. I had an amazing healthy newborn and felt ashamed for focusing on what I wasn't happy with about myself physically - as if it made me sound ungrateful for my baby; but when I looked in the mirror or got dressed to go out I would cry because I hated the way I felt and looked. I began to think maybe I was just going to have to get used to the way I looked - even though I was miserable.
My goal was just to be what I weighed when I got pregnant.
Here I stand today, my baby is a year old and I am 43 lbs less - but the coolest part is that I am 28 lbs LESS than I was when I got pregnant. We are going to Aruba and for the first time since I was a teenager, I am not dreading wearing a bikini. I never thought my body could look better after having a baby, but you guys it is totally possible. More than losing the weight, learning how to keep it off forever was the coolest part for me. Also disproving the myth that one needs a gym membership to lose weight was eye opening. This program has changed my life so I created Get Fit With Flores to help teach others how to feel and do the exact same thing!
If you relate to what I've said at all please don't hesitate to reach out to me - I promise I can help!

Transformation Tuesday!

Transformation Tuesday Okay so the new thing is #transformationtuesday I guess?! Heaven forbid I miss out on the latest trend that's rocking Instagram! On the left is me at 37 weeks pregnant and probably 45-50 lb heavier. I had Chico less than a week later. On the right is me today, almost 8 months post baby. Women's bodies are amazing and capable of incredible feats! That being said- I wouldn't have ever been able to look like this without changing my health habits and diet. I never thought I could look like this again, seriously. I haven't weighed this much since college! I feel wonderful and want other mamas to feel the same. It's possible. I swear!!!

P.S. Sassy Zebra Nursing Bra from Target - gotta love Gillian O'Malley!
