As you guys know - in January this year my big girl turned 3 and her baby brother was born, within the same week.
I spent a couple of months in baby haven bliss, elated that breastfeeding was working out this time, focusing on consuming all the calories so the milk keeps flowing, running on love and adrenalin, getting out as much as possible to see what I can accomplish as a mama of 2, not resting when I should’ve been resting, not taking such great care of myself with all focus redirected to the kids and feeling guilt-overload when I’d go beyond the basic grooming, like spending ‘unnecessary’ time to straighten my hair.
Then three months of this sleepless-restless- guilt-packed buildup started to take its toll.
My placenta pills ran out.
My hair began falling out like I’ve never experienced before.
The postpartum night sweats seemed to be getting worse.
The daily headaches were debilitating.
My energy was almost non-existent.
My mood swings became irrational.
The snacking got out of control.
The constant reaching for quick sugars was exhausting.
The sugar cravings were uncontrollable.
I couldn’t exercise due to excruciating pain in my joints.
I was so so unbelievably tired.
And despite what everyone told me about the weight loss when breastfeeding, it didn’t seem to apply to me. I was slimmer 2 weeks after birth, than 2 months after.
Then the weight gain accelerated.
The bloating became frequent. And painful.
I developed a gut.
The day my baby boy turned 7 month was the last day of our breastfeeding journey and [interestingly] the first day of my returned period since getting pregnant.
It was also the day I decided to make a drastic change and to devote all focus to MY personal wellbeing.
I wanted to see the best in the industry and because I kept a close eye on LMS (London Medi Spa), who are Tanya’s deli’s neighbours within My Chelsea Hotel, over the many months they were building their state-of-the-art wellness department, I had no doubt they were the right fit.
That’s when I saw the LMS Wellness team and the journey to #TanyasMegaWellness began.
If you’re interested in regular updates, what tests I’m getting, how my body is changing, what results are starting to happen, etc etc - follow @tanyasliving on IG and FB or catch up on previous updates by searching the #TanyasMegaWellness hashtag.
Here’s everything I’ve done so far:
Here are some screen shots from my IG stories where I've been showing you what supplements I've been taking over the past six weeks:
I’m only 1.5 months in, but already feel transformed, like I have a new lease on life!
The weight hasn’t changed (even went up slightly), but my body fat is less and muscle mass is more.
No more bloat.
Almost no more gut.
No more joint pain.
No more sugar cravings or snacking.
No more hair loss.
No more mood swings.
My energy is back! And I’m feeling so good again!!!
I still have the results of my genetic test to study and to report to you and am yet to do a stool test, plus try Cryotherapy and complete the full course of Nystatin, Adrenal Support supplements as well as all the other supplements and now that I have more energy, I want to run more too!
So watch this space for updates.
And watch the videos on @tanyasliving IGTV plus IG stories- I get pretty raw and real there!
