Mother of three shares her incredible transformation after losing 40 pounds in EIGHT months

A mother of three who recovered from her “bad relationship” with food lost 40 pounds in eight months, completely changing her body and self-esteem.

27-year-old Megan Lockhart decided to slim down her 102-pound frame after giving birth for the third time in 2018 and has maintained her 62-pound goal weight for over a year.

“I’m comforting on the way to obesity, and when my husband and I wanted to start a family, I lost weight terribly,” said the Queensland-based woman.

“I cut a lot of calories from my diet and developed some unhealthy no-eating habits that I still struggle with today, although I slowly overcome my disordered eating habits.”

She started following The healthy mama blog and recipes after her first son was born in 2016, who managed to lose 20 pounds by following the principles of moderate eating and daily exercise.

But when she got pregnant a second time, this time with a girl, she started ‘stressing’ because she thought there was something wrong with the pregnancy. Unfortunately, her intuition was right.

“Our second girl went to sleep with a 25-week pregnancy due to brain and heart defects,” she said.

“I regained focus on the Healthy Mummy and before I knew it six weeks after saying goodbye to our little girl, I was pregnant again,” she said (pictured with her two sons)

Megan described her third pregnancy as “very difficult,” and she was unable to maintain control of her food, ballooning up to 102 pounds – like all her other pregnancies.

But she was blessed with a second baby boy to complete their family and had no reservations about starting her weight loss journey again.

“For breakfast, I always start with a smoothie with fruit and mostly oats in it, something to keep me going and keep me going,” she told FEMAIL.

Morning tea is ‘always something sweet’ and can be homemade Weetbix coconut slice, chocolate fibrous brownies, raw lemon cheesecake, triple chocolate cheesecake or honey and oats slice.

This is normally accompanied by a cup of coffee, and if she is ‘extra hungry’, also a piece of fruit.

‘For lunch, I usually refer to my Healthy Mummy app and see what’s easy to whip up in a short time. Now that it’s so cold, I like toasted sandwiches or soups, ”she said.

“Or I go to my freezer and heat a Healthy Mummy spinach and ricotta sausage roll and serve it with steamed vegetables.”

During the summer months, Megan turns to salads as her go-to, but as we approach winter, Chinese food is like beef and black bean stew or sweet and sour chicken and vegetables with rice for dinner

Snacks can range from cherry tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers to cheese and nuts.

She took walks every day when she was losing weight, or doing a light boxing class or training at home in the living room.

“Once I got to my target weight, I reduced the exercise a bit. I now go walking or running about three times a week and I do the Healthy Mummy exercises every day from the app, ”she said.

“I also go into the garden and run around with my boys. I still eat the same as when I was losing weight, just now for maintenance I eat a bit more so I like to enjoy ice cream or chocolate a few times a week. ‘

Dropping from size 18 to size 10, Megan enjoys life much more with her new body, and hopes her transformation will inspire others to take a leap of faith and restore their relationship with food.
