Here’s the thing, I’ve never been a fat person. I have never had to worry much about exercise or what I eat but I am now turning into a fat mom.
Years ago I remember one of my friends saying she doesn’t even have to eat a biscuit to gain weight she just has to smell it and she gains a kilogram. This was before we had children and I could eat biscuits by the bag full without batting an eye.
Anyway let me just say that those days for me are long gone. Two kids later and having quit smoking I can say that I honestly feel like a tub of lard. I can feel this foreign tummy sitting on me and I detest it.
This festive season is going to be the first where I won’t feel comfortable in a swimming costume and I am not even talking about a bikini here. I am going to be one of those moms that goes swimming in shorts and a baggy tshirt!
If you have been following my blog for a while you would have seen my weight loss efforts at the beginning of this year when I wrote about my mum tum.
At that stage I was loading on the weight after quitting smoking. I managed to stop the weight being added on and I’ve even lost a little during that process but I never got back to my normal weight (ie pre kids).
Anyway back to this fat mom with boobs right?
Us moms, we have no privacy and I am so over it. Yes I poop and my two Minions are with me for the experience. I shower and I have an audience. This is my life.
So I get out the shower and my 5 year old daughter starts jumping up and down shrieking:
“Look!! It’s a fat mom! It’s a fat mom with boobs!”.
Then she tells me “I have to draw this, I just have to draw this right now!”.
And with that my budding little artist races away to the table to go find her pens and paper, leaving me standing there naked and ashamed wondering what I have done to deserve this!
I can hear my husband and daughter talking and laughing while I get dressed.
When I come out the bedroom my husband is killing himself laughing while sticking this artwork up on the wall in the lounge. He says the likeness is just too good to not share it in the public living area.
I take a look and well I have to admit that it is quite good. A nice round belly, fat arms… and well boobs, yes those are there. The legs are skinnier which is spot on, since thankfully those appear to be saved the fat wars. Or maybe the fat just hasn’t managed to spread there yet?
One thing that pleased me greatly is that I have a huge big smile. I would much rather be a fat mom that is happy than a sour faced skinny mom right?
Anyway a friend of mine, Bert Werner, came over a few days later so I could help him with setting up a Facebook page for his and his wife’s business.
I looked up and stare straight at “fat mom with boobs” … oh the shame. I wonder if he’s seen it?
I mean I don’t want to point it out and explain if he hasn’t right? I try and put this out of my head but damn it is a distraction.
I’m testing a weight loss nut!
Today I visited Bert again to help him with some Facebook related things and I tell him about the picture. He hadn’t seen it and we had a good laugh about it.
See, the business I am helping Bert and his wife, Ellen, with setting up online is Awesome Slim Nut. They have their Facebook page set up now and early next year I am going to help them set up a website and assist Ellen with learning how to blog.
She lost 104kgs eating a nut that is from Brazil. Yes it sounds crazy doesn’t it?
Below is an image from her Facebook page showing her weight loss.
Now I am not a fan of weight loss products, simply because I don’t believe that they are good for you. They are often packed full of rubbish and dangerous ingredients. Lots of diet pills are highly addictive.
I don’t agree with meal replacement shakes or products like Herbalife… sorry but that is not for me.
Anyway Bert gave me a pack of these nuts from Brazil. They apparently break down the fat and toxins in your body and then expel them from your body.
I am about to test this wonderful nut out and I will share my journey with you. I just measured this mum tum and my waist is now 105cm.
Here’s hoping that this fat mom can shed a few kgs. I don’t have a scale right now but I probably weigh about 75kgs… so I would like to lose at least 10kg in total.
It is not really about the amount of weight that I need to lose it is more that this stomach feels like an alien attached to me, it doesn’t belong here and it feels terrible.
It takes a few weeks to start to see the effect so I will share an update with you in January again!
At under R300 for 12 nuts which can last 2-3 months. It is a great price and also it is all natural which really appeals to me.
If you are interested but unsure just wait and see my feedback on this product in a few weeks. I will do the research for you!
And trust me if it doesn’t work I will say so, but if you see me in a bikini on the beach… well you better get yourself some of these nuts quick.
