Note: I just want to make it clear that I never have and never will use diet pills. There have been some creepy companies and websites out there that have attempted to link themselves to me. If you have come across these claims and have found my blog is such a way, know that it is a scheme. There is no quick fix to weight loss, just old fashioned hard work and determination.
My name is Nina, a mother, a wife, a writer and an undercover badass. Prior to pregnancy I was an athlete, an ex-soccer player, crossfitter, runner and muay thai practitioner… I felt pretty awesome. Despite these activities I was still overweight. I was that chubby girl who could run circles around the skinny-fat girls.
Although I made efforts to workout during my pregnancy, I was left looking like Jabba the Hut after giving birth to my second child.
Eight months had passed and after a few failed attempts I had found myself sitting on the couch in my milk-stained, overused maternity wear feeling super sorry for myself.
Finally the time had come… I decided to lose this weight I’ve been hefting around and get back to that inner hottie that I can be. You know, the one that my husband fell in love with. That whole reason I got pregnant in the first place. I kid.
The fact is, I’m too much of a hottie to be stuck in this body. We all are, and by “we” I mean anyone who might be reading this because they are going through the same thing.
By following this blog you will trudge through the good, the bad and the ugly in an honest portrayal of the physical and psychological struggles weight loss provides.
