It’s now officially three months since I delivered my twins, and alas, I’m not quite ready for my bikini Us Weekly cover. It turns out — wait for it — stars are not just like us.
While I’ll resist a tirade about the dangerous nature of our cultural body-after-baby-in-five-minutes obsession, I can say that I am fully cleared after C-section to resume most excercise (with the exception of things like crunches that could exacerbate my diastasis recti — but that will be a topic for another post). And I’m back to eating right after, shall we say, several months of ravenous appetite indulgence related to creating two human bodies inside my body. And, yes — I have a few (ahem) more pounds still to lose before I’m back at my pre-pregnancy weight.
Only thing is I’m working full time and have the two teeny humans mentioned above to look after. So there’s not the time there used to be to devote to grocery shopping, recipe hunting, cooking, counting calories, focusing on portions, and all that jazz.
So I’m back to my old standby: The Fresh Diet.
Do you guys know about this awesome program? It delivers freshly prepared meals to your door daily and in calorie-controlled portions so you never have to think about what you’re eating. Just put the yummy food they bring in your mouth, and that’s it. There’s nothing to think about. You will lose weight — as I’ve done several times in the past few years by doing this program. And here’s a cool new bonus for veggies like me: The program now has a brand-new vegetarian delivery plan! There’s a new gluten-free option too.
Any other new moms — or anybody else! — want to be Internet wight-loss buddies with me? Let’s do it! The Fresh Diet will offer my readers three free days! That’s about a $120 value. Sign up for 31 days at $39.99 per day on the plan plus get your three free days using the codes PREMIUMFD (for the premium plan), VEGETARIANFD (for the vegetarian plan), or GLUTENFREEFD (for the gluten-free plan). These codes are good til the end of the year.
But wait, there’s more. You can win seven free days (!) by liking Thee Fresh Diet on Facebook, and following on Instagram and Twitter. Then comment right here on why you want to win a week! (The company currently delivers in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Dallas, and Chicago.)
New mama like me? Just too tired-busy-brain-full-can’t-deal-whatever to think? I get it! Let’s do it together, OK? We got this.
I’ll pick a winner on October 31. Good luck!
