Fashion designer Zia Bett has opened up about her experience dealing with postpartum following the birth of her first child.
In a long post, she said “I’ve really debated posting this transformation, only because I can’t believe that’s how I’d been walking these streets and no one told me. But honestly, after bringing life into this world, anything beyond taking care of a new born is a favour. Though for me, I vividly remember looking in the mirror and just hating how I looked and felt. I didn’t wanna feel like that anymore. I knew I could look better, I knew I could feel better.
If that’s you regardless of whether you’ve had a baby or not, the biggest lesson I’ve learnt in my health and fitness journey so far, is to break that mental cage. Take it a day at a time. I’ve tried keto/healthy eating/working out so many times and it does get overwhelming to imagine your life without all those delicious things, or just magically going to the gym everyday, but just put your mind to that one day.
“Today, I’m eating healthy” and that’s all you focus on that day. Tomorrow will figure itself out. Then do the same thing the next day & the next day. When the day gets hard, break it down to hours. “This hour I’m eating healthy” etc until you acquire that discipline.
I feel strongly to share my journey
because I know weight loss and staying healthy is a battle we all struggle with. I’ll strive to be as real as possible, in the hopes that I’ll inspire even if it’s one person. Let me know what you’d like to know more about & I’ll do my best to share my experience with you. Happy Monday! Let’s get it!”
