All of my Yummy Tummies Members started at the same point. They were all at a low point and they came to me to help them get back to where they once were.
However, there’s no point me talking for them.
I was so terrified that I’d never get back into shape after having my 2 children, particularly after having a c-section.
I knew that I desperately needed to do some form of structured exercise designed specifically to target those problem areas associated with pregnancy and childbirth.
It wasn’t merely that I had put on weight, or the fact that I had virtually no muscle strength in my stomach or lower back, or even that my body shape was almost completely unrecognisable to me, but rather I just didn’t have any confidence in my body anymore.”
My body was out of shape then at the age of 41 and I suffered from repeated back problems due to the repeatedly wrong posture carrying my three children on the same hip.”
Following the birth of my twins, the battle to return to a pre pregnancy shape was just too much. I was struggling with my body and my confidence and I turned to Lyndon for expert help.”
However, the real motivation for developing a programme to help even more people was the birth of my daughter Mia.
This gave me a huge insight of just how hard the early days are. You see I was and still am a very hands on Dad.
The 2am feed…I was there for that.
Trying to go to work on 3 hours sleep day after day…wow that was hard.
I never believed all of my friends when they said that I would be tired. I have never been that tired before…ever!
And I also saw first hand the frustration and emotional outpouring of what it is like when my wife wanted to get back in shape.
Post baby photos, they were banned.
You probably only have one photo of yourself when you were pregnant, and that was taken by someone else. My wife was exactly the same.
You know how it is to be that tired and exhausted that you can’t even think.
It also happened that during this time every friend, colleague and neighbour seemed to be pregnant and I was answering a thousand and one questions every time I saw them.
So I decided to write it all down on paper.
You will be guided through each stage of your Yummy Tummies Blueprint step by step to help you to get that flat stomach back. By addressing the correct muscles of the abdominals and re-educating the abdominal wall we will get your body back to a position even stronger than pre-pregnancy!
One of the hardest things about starting exercise after giving birth is just that starting. It is hard. But with the right guidance you can overcome all of this.
You will come up with these excuses of why not to start. But I rather like to focus on what you can do.
I felt the effects of the exercises straight away in all of the right areas. It was easy to fit into my routine with my children. I was worried about exercising after a c-section, but these exercises were just what I needed.”
By week two I was starting to get used to the exercises. The programme gave me focus and structured my time. I’m really excited about making a difference to my body. The great thing was that it didn’t take too much time and I didn’t need to go to the gym. This is great because now I can cancel my membership.”
By week three I was really noticing the difference. Not only was my waist coming back, but my thighs, bum and abs were getting a lot stronger. Because I felt stronger, I was feeling more confident and I started to wear better clothes, wear makeup. It really lifted my spirits. I was also holding myself a lot better.
Before starting yummy tummies I never believed I would see my body back or that I would feel like me again…. don’t get me wrong I adore being a Mum but it does take its toll on you and this programme has been a life saver. I am stronger and fitter than I ever could have imagined and I would seriously recommend this programme to any woman looking to get back on track after having children. Life is busy enough, don’t waste any more time trying to find that ‘magic solution’ -this is it, honestly yummy tummies really works!!!!”
There is going to be hard work involved and some lifestyle changes will need to be made to get the results you want.
