Banish Your Muffin Top

4 weeks into the Fit Yummy Mummy Lifestyle and Carrie has lost her muffin top!

"Wow! I know I said I believed in the program before but now I REALLY believe. I need a choir robe and an organ accompaniment here.

Even with overeating on my birthday and too much valentines candy I'm still seeing results.

While the physical changes are enough to make me dance around naked my energy level is through the roof and to me that's more of a pay off than anything.

This morning I had to resort to the last pair of clean jeans hanging in my closet that I just haven't worn for a long time now because of they give me the dreaded "muffin top".

Since I made a solemn vow to myself that I would NEVER wear that something that did that to my body in public or even at home I kicked around the thought of putting my jammies back on, but since I had to go grocery this afternoon I decided to just suck it in and wear a big shirt to cover the offending fat rolls.

Then the magic happened.

I put on the pants and pulled them up with my back facing the mirror so I wouldn't have to see all that ugly. But low and behold ladies.....


Can you believe it? I can!

I believed and it delivered.

Some days I had to sneak in a workout right before dinner because I know I won't be able to do it after dinner.

Some days I had to be super careful with my 20 lb kettle ball because my 2 year old is playing with his choo-choo at my feet.

Some days I've had to give up any free time I might have had to get my workout in.

Some days it drains me to know that I have no choice but to workout the rest of my life, but not today.

Today I ADORE this program.
Today I am already looking forward to tomorrow's workout.

Today I am a Happy Fit Yummy Mummy with no muffin top in a size 9 juniors jeans!!!!!!

Today I realize how important my mental well being is and to have that I have to have this.

Today I think I banished my workout resentment forever.
Its now my partner. My new best friend.

Anything that can really help me lose the belly fat is a good thing.

Today is a good day.

Peace. Love. And Intervals to you all!"

Carrie's Fit Yummy Mummy Success Tips

1. Number on the scale not so important
2. Eat before I get hungry

Less Cardio: More Fat Loss

Lose More Fat with Intervals

"When I started FYM I had to make the decision to quit running every morning.

This was really hard because I was in a running group and had such a close social network in that group. So along with running and getting my exercise I was getting in my social hour too.

A sidenote, we all complained that no matter how much we ran none of us was losing any weight.(Hmmmm, I thought to myself, there has to be a better way).

Along came Holly and Fit Yummy Mummy!!

Anyway, once I stopped running long distances everyday and started the Fit Yummy Mummy way of life, I "magically" started dropping weight (6 lbs. so far), and all my running friends are asking me, "wow you look great what have you been doing?"

Well I tell them and then they look at me like I am crazy.

They all say I could never give up running.

Well, I haven't given up running. I do my running differently now. Ever heard of wind sprints or suicides (Intervals)? Those short bursts of running still give me that runner's high but I don't have to run for an hour and it is actually making me lose fat!!

Still none of my friends will jump on the bandwagon with me. Oh well, MY loss! Ha Ha!

The high intensity short burst way of exercising really is enough to give you those endorphins you crave. Plus, it makes you lose fat. What is better than that?

I just ordered this swimsuit for my Hawaii trip so I am posting the picture of the model in it.

So I put on my new swimsuit. I know I don't look as good as the model does in it, but I definitely look better than I would have a couple of months ago. Thanks Holly!!"

I Broke Through My Plateau!

She Finally LOST the Post Baby Fat
Fit Yummy Mummy Angela's Victory!

"Holly -
I just wanted to tell you that you made my day today! This morning I broke my 130 barrier on the scale - something I had not accomplished on any other post-baby diet I had tried.

And I have not killed myself running 10 miles a day, or starving myself, or denying myself in anyway (because I don't miss the things I have cut out).

I have not broken this 130 barrier for 6 years - since my 3rd child was born. I had another child since then (3.5years ago) and got back down to the 135 range - but never could break that plateau, not matter what I did - running, walking, tae bo, tae kwon do, adkins, south beach, etc.

I could never embrace a whole lifestyle transformation until now. And I know this is totally something I can stick to for life - you have made it so easy for everyone to do, by just following your Fit Yummy Mummy principles.

I am beginning to notice a real difference overall in the way I look in the mirror.

My side profile is shaping up, and there is less of me there - I especially see it in the tummy. Though I am a looooong way from washboard abs, there is definitely less flabbiness.

There is under-the-surface progress!! My shape is changing - I'm "lighter." And it is a wonderful thing!!

I feel healthy and empowered - which does not usually happen when you "diet" - at least in my experience (usually the feelings are more like hungry, impatient, weak and frustrated!!).

You have given us a tremendous gift - and I know you must hear that alot, but maybe I am first today to tell you that :)!!

Thank you for helping me accomplish this victory, Holly - and I know more is just around the corner!!

P.S. I told my husband to break out the party balloons - to which he replied that he knew I did it - guess he is seeing a difference too!"

My Husband is Noticing My Results!

AmberLee is Taking Action and Getting Results!

What Does AmberLee's Husband think of her Fit Yummy Mummy Results?

"Just yesterday my husband commented on how my arms are looking more toned (in other words..."you're not so flabby,") and my tummy and butt are starting to tighten more!

Talk about making my day ;0)

As most of you know...I have been dealing with a couple of sickies at home (myself included) and have been unable to do much :( But I have learned that every little bit helps. And the more you force yourself to do that last interval or that last set the easier it will be to do...and the less you will dread doing it! (Still paying attention to any warnings your body may give you though!) I am starting to really enjoy the time I get to spend working out ;0)

Even though I was set back a few days with being sick, I still feel it is important to go over what Fit Yummy Mummy has done and is doing for me in just the short time I have been implementing it.

First and foremost would be how I feel...

Despite being sick for a few days, I have been feeling a lot more energetic, less moody, and more "able"...that is, able to face the world each day and strive to reach my goals.

I used to feel defeated from the moment I got out of bed because I was on so little sleep... and spent so much time caring for my newborn and my husband that I felt like I would never be able to fit in anything for myself.

This is where my mindset and outlook on "life" was skewed.

As Holly said, who is going to look out for your needs if you don't?

What a way to live...waking up each day knowing that you are not going to take care of yourself or do anything for yourself! Again, my thinking was skewed.

The more I care for myself the more able I am to care for others.

As a result of eating more supportively and taking advice from my lovely ClubFYM friends...I have been getting more sleep!!! I thought this was a lost cause...

But anything can happen when you actually take action towards it-THANK YOU to all that helped me in this quest!!!

As far as how my body is changing in appearance...I am going to take the advice of Holly and others and not weigh or measure just yet. But, I think my husband's comments are testimony enough to the fact that things ARE changing...and I will reach my goal!!!"

Will Fit Yummy Mummy Work for Me?

On the Fence about Fit Yummy Mummy?

"Fit Yummy Mummy has become my lifestyle. Its a part of me and who I am now. I don't even have to think about what I am doing anymore, it's become second nature.

I love having a plan at meal times. I love having a plan going to the grocery store. I even like going to the grocery store now. Holly if you figure out a way for me to "love" doing laundry let me know! ;) OKay doing the laundry isnt so bad, its the folding and putting away part that I do not enjoy.

If there is anyone out there on the fence about FYM I am here to tell you, JUMP OVER!!!

You will never regret it.

I have been yo-yo dieting most of my life, and I have never found a lifestyle anywhere that lived up to what it promised. With a few small changes you can completely turn your body, health and life around. Isn't it wonderful to know that you can take control and change it all around?!

The concept is a simple one. By choosing better foods, eating every 3-4 hours, and a better way to workout, you can feel so uplifted and amazing.

I love that I don't spend hours working out, 90m mins a week thats it!

I used to be a cardio queen and now that I work out like this I get upset when I think about all the wasted time that I spent at the gym, or in my house working out. Holly has found the secret and has shared it with all of us.

You are a busy mom too we have other things we need to do! You can take your workouts anywhere you go, that is what I love about it....NO EXCUSES!!!

I am 11 weeks into this and I cant believe how wonderful this is. It is unlike anything I have ever done in the past. Once you get your nutrition in place and begin your workouts you will feel amazed and energized. After about 3-4 weeks the magic starts happening!

This is what I call my "Sweet Spot" When you hit your "Sweet Spot" you will know it. It is the best feeling in the world!!! Not only am I getting healthy, but I am becoming a better me!

I used to be a mom who had lost "me" along the way.

I was so busy taking care of everyone else's wants and needs. Sure, I was happy to do it! I have been blessed with two of the greatest jobs, I am Autumn and Eric's Mommy and I am Jeff's wife! But, I had come to realize, if I don't take care of me, who is going to take care of them?

Fit Yummy Mummy helped me to become a confident person who likes herself again, a better mom who has energy to play with her kids, and a supportive fun loving wife to Jeff! Now I wake up so excited and happy everyday. My husband is amazed how happy and outgoing I have become. A few months ago I was so down and so unhappy. Not anymore!

Then the snowball effect happens, by becoming a better person, wife, mom, and friend, you want to share Fit Yummy Mummy with every single woman that you know. You want them to feel this amazing and good about themselves.

How many other programs out there can do that for you?

I don't know of a single one. I know if I were to have a down day I will have 100 plus women running to lift me up. They would be there to give me the love and support to get through my rough time.

What a wonderful feeling to know that you can have it all!!!

So my question to you is, what are you waiting for?
Where are you going to find anything even close to this? It's not out there my friend, we have all looked and we ended up here. Sure, you have to put forth some effort, but with a little time and the right mindset you will see results.

You will also have all of us cheering you on as you make your transformation! This is where it is happening!!! Come join us and become a Fit Yummy Mummy with us!!!

How to Workout When You are Sick

Not Feeling So Great?

Not feeling so good today, but worried about breaking the progress you have made?

I fell off the radar there for a bit as I had to overcome a stomach bug of my own. I know a few of you have also shared that you too have battled with a sickness here and there and now wonder....

"What can I do to make up for lost time?"
"What the best workout strategy to help me get back on track?"

First know that it is fine to take time off from your workout plan when you are ill.

REST is the #1 prescription when it comes to recovering from whatever sickness you may be fighting. Nutrition is #2 and I'll cover that one in a moment.

If you have a bout with that notorious bug that seems to make its way around quite quickly, do not fall prey to the pressure to try to workout during this time or make up for time that is lost because of it. Taking this approach will only cause more harm than good.

Just like it is not one meal or one missed workout that causes the damage, a couple days of being ill will not cause you to go back to square one.

First I'll state the obvious.
Do Not Workout If:
* You have a fever
* You feel nauseous
* You are highly contagious

Your body needs the rest.
Trying to workout may only cause you feel worse. Your immune system is working overtime trying to get you better - it will be counterproductive to put your immune system under stress from exercise and may prolong your illness.

It is a myth that you can "sweat out the germs and toxins". Low levels of exercise increase endorphins and benefit your body, but an intense workout that creates high levels of endorphins can wear down your immune system.

If you just have a minor cold - it is okay to go through your workout, at a less intense pace. Doing so will help you to feel better and allow you to breath easier for it will help to open up your nasal passages.

How to Get back on Track:

Wait at least one to two days after you are over the worst of it.

1. Engage in a light workout.
The purpose here is to EASE back in to your normal workouts. Do not expect to go all out at this point. I would suggest choosing to start off with a less intense version of your intervals or a modified resistance training workout. If either of these options includes jumping, you may wish to find a substitute.

Options may look like:

Intervals - instead of a normal 1 min. low/1 min. high, choose to perform 2 minutes low, 1 minute high but all variables are less intense than your regular interval session. This may extend your time spent and that is okay. No need to go past 20 minutes....remember the goal is to EASE back into your routine.

Resistance Training Workout
- you have a couple options here. Depending on your fitness level and how you are feeling, you may choose to complete a beginner level, body weight based workout.

You may choose to go through the workout once. So instead of completing 3 super sets, you just complete one set of each exercise taking sufficient time between each for rest as needed.

You may choose to pick 2-4 exercises within your workout and complete 2-3 super sets.

Afterwards you can judge how you are feeling to see if you are up to a light interval session.

2. Make sure you have something to eat.
This needs to be stated, for when we are sick, our appetite diminishes, but our body needs the fuel, not just to go through a light workout, but to also help your body to recover from being ill. Make sure you eat something light at least an hour before hand.

3. Stay Hydrated: Before, during and after.
This VERY important!
Fevers burn up body fluids and you lose extra water and fluids from your skin, lungs and digestive tract if it is infected with intestinal germs. This concern is doubled if you have been unable to keep anything down.

You will lose even more body fluids during a workout when you sweat. So when you are recovering from an illness and you begin to workout again, it is common for your thirst reflex goes on the blink, and very easy to forget to drink.

4. Stop if you feel light headed - do not attempt to to keep going.

5. Take some extra time to cool down.
At the end of your workout, factor in some time to take a leisurely walk or work in some light stretching.

Bottom line - Listen to your body!

As far as nutrition goes.....while there is not a lot we can do in terms of exercise while we are sick, we have 100% control over the foods we choose to eat.

This is the perfect time to fill your body with good soups and juices filled with only natural goodness to help accelerate your recovery.

What about my results?
Your progress will not be hindered by a few days off from your regularly challenging workouts and your consistent nutrition plan. Getting sick is a VERY normal set back and you WILL bounce back easily if you choose to follow these guidelines.

Give it a couple days and once you get your energy and strength back you'll feel great and want to exercise again. Many of us find a whole new drive after taking this time to recover. Just be sure you give yourself the time and the nutrients to recover and you will be back on track before you know it!

So here are my GET WELL SOON wishes if you are still feeling like crap. Know that it will soon pass and you will not have lost any of the progress you have made - instead you will come back stronger and more eager than ever to move ahead!!

Be sure to register for the Transformation Challenge if you need an Extra Kick to move ahead. You have until February 29th to enter!

Sugar: Why is it so Addictive?

Fighting Cravings for Sweets

"So I've always wondered why I crave sugar so much especially after I eat a meal. I have not gone one day without finding something with sugar in it to satisfy my urge. Some days I get a little carried away.

Why does this happen?

I've tried to eat grapes or something sweet when I get that urge however it doesn't cut it so then I end up eating some candy canes (which I am totally addicted to) or something sweet. I know I should clean my house out of all of the bad food and I have a whole lot but my kids still like to have their snacks."
~ Amy

Amy, you are not alone. Many women encounter this all too familiar battle day in and day out.

Sweet cravings come about for a number of reasons. In order to defeat these cravings, it is important to understand why they occur.

1. Part of your cravings exist due to habit. You must have satisfied this craving in the past - following a meal with something sweet. Then suddenly it becomes a part of your mindset. After every meal must come dessert. The good news is ALL Habits are learned, so this habit cam be unlearned as the result of practice and repetition.

2. Your cravings will continue to exist if you eat simple, refined carbohydrates or high sugar foods. The day you cut out the sweets is the day you take control and stop the cravings. Cravings exist because we feed them and allow them to exist. Yes, it is an addiction, but one we choose to have.

Take a peek at what is happening inside your body when you do make this choice. My hopes are that you will think twice before giving in.
Eating simple carbohydrates causes a spike in your blood sugar for these foods are quickly absorbed into the blood stream. This in turn gives you the temporary sugar high - it feels good....however, our body does not like this imbalance and a series of hormonal responses take place.

Your body produces an increased amount of the Insulin - a storage hormone. In order to facilitate this rush of insulin, glucagon - a release hormone - is diminished.

What does this hormone game mean to you? Each time you consume simple sugars and refined carbohydrates, you are doing nothing more than locking in fat.

Even worse? This cycle will continue for once your blood sugar levels hit bottom. You will Crash due to the excess insulin. Your body reacts once again for at this point your energy level bottoms out, you have trouble thinking clearly and you end up with cravings. You will inevitably crave sweets as these foods will raise blood sugar the quickest, getting you out of your slump.

The blood sugar High/Low cycle repeats - again and again and again...

Think of a roller coaster. This is what is happening inside your body every time you eat sweets.

The only way to stop the to get off the ride.

Strategies to Eliminate your Sweet Tooth

1. Clean out the Kitchen.
Keeping sweets in the house will actually sabotaging your chances to be successful. Replace the junk with supportive options. For example, fresh fruits and vegetable, nuts, string cheese, high fiber crackers, etc.

2. Keep a Food Log
Are you eating every 3 to 4 hours? Skipping meals will cause your blood sugar levels to drop. Be sure each meal and snack includes the right balance of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Sometimes a craving occurs due to a lack of protein and/or fats in your meal and snacks. Simply eating an apple is not enough. Pair your apple with a handful of nuts or some diced cheese cubes.

3. Wait it Out
Did you know a craving lasts for about 15 minutes - then it goes away. Make a list of things you can do to distract you for 15 minutes. When a craving hits....grab a bottle of water and get to that activity - you can even set a timer. Once you hit 15 minutes...your cravings are gone and you are EMPOWERED!

4. Are you Stressed?
Some cravings are STRESS related. Practice other ways to cope with stress - go for a walk , spiritual connections, a cozy fireplace, hot baths...all these stimulate neurochemicals that activate regions of the brain that stimulate pleasure associated with eating something sweet.

5. Break Old Habits.
One way to take control and make a change is to keep a journal - sure enjoy a big glass of water or cup of hot tea - but do so as you write down what you are craving...why you are craving it....give the craving a name and talk to it....find out what it wants....tell it why it is not welcome at this time....I know, sounds corny - but does help you gain insight and control over such thoughts and beliefs - then you have the power to change them.

By simply "doing" something different after dinner, you can overcome this habit. After dinner, brush your teeth, chew on a piece of gum, sip on some hot tea that has a naturally sweet taste (this one has been my lifesaver....a licorice based tea has a wonderfully sweet flavor).

Remove yourself from the environment where you normally had your sweet dessert or treat. If you normally eat it while watching TV - turn off the TV and distract yourself with a good book, play with your children, listen to some music, write in your journal....

You will be amazed at how powerful a few little lifestyle habits will give you the control you need to deal with and overcome those nagging cravings.

From the ClubFYM Forums:

"I have set my mind that I don't want to do anything to hinder getting ready for the bikini season and I am going to do whatever it takes to get there. I guess I have convinced myself that I just don't want sweet stuff. It also helps that I am seeing results and I don't want to take a step backwards. Usually when I do fall off of the wagon it doesn't taste good to me anymore (my taste buds have definitely changed) and it just wasn't worth it so that has also made it easier to avoid."

"I just found something else that squashes my sweet craving thought I'd share. I read that Drew Barrymore using this trick to feel like she is eating a cookie and I tried it and it worked ! LOL Put 1 almond on top of a dried apricot...thats it. Doesn't sound to great I know but the sweetness of the apricot and the crunch from the almond make it feel like you are eating something special."

Get Fit Togther: Couple's Fat Loss

Valentine's Day Fitness

"Hi Holly,
Wow! I haven't really gotten started yet and I am amazed of the amount of support from everyone. I can tell the FYM club is definitely going be a big part to my success in achieving my goals. Thanks for your support and the helpful tips.

My finance wants to know if you can recommend a similar fitness program for men?"
~Michelle Hendricks

This is a request I am getting quite frequently!

It really is something that once women begin making positive changes, their significant other notices and is ready and willing to join in!

And I say what better way to successfully reach your fat loss goals than by joining forces with your Man!

Having a strong support system in place really is the difference maker when it comes to making positive changes to and sticking to it! Besides, change is hard enough! But when you share it with someone you love, the experience not only becomes easier as you are both committed to a healthier lifestyle but your relationship grows stronger in the process.

So what do I recommend?

Turbulence Training, of course!

HIS: Craig Ballantyne, my friend and a true fat-loss expert, publishes his fat-burning workouts in national magazines such as Men's Health and Oxygen, along with online newsletters EarlyToRise and Total Health Breakthroughs. You've probably come across his videos on Youtube and Men's Health, as well.

Craig has created a trademarked fat loss system called Turbulence Training the most effective fat loss-muscle building workout system your Man will ever experience! Turbulence Training is as straight-forward as any fat loss program for men could be.

There's no BS, no magic pills or powders to buy, and no expensive gym memberships required.

HERS: To compliment His progress Ladies - you have your very own Fit Yummy Mummy Friend and Coach to guide you step-by-step with the complete 16-week Busy Mom's Lifestyle System.

My programs are designed for busy Moms with a limited amount of time to exercise.

"Happy Valentine's Day, you are so my favorite person right now. Just got a new swimsuit for my trip to Hawaii, and it is not so bad putting it on. I owe a lot of that to you. Thank you." ~ Maria

"Thank You Holly!! The more I learn and do the program, the more I like it, but at the center of it is you and your positive attitude and personality, and that radiates to everyone around so you have got quite the community going here! I'm really enjoying it, hoping to participate more and so glad to be back on track." ~ Jan Ferrante

"Thanks Holly for the encouragement.. It may have been another year of bad habits if not for posting my pictures for the transformation. I hope you really realise the dramatic impact you are having on so many lives and I truly can not thank you enough for this providing such valuable resources - yourself and the amazing women of FYM! See you on the YUMMY side!" ~ Michelle

Fat Burners - Speed Up Fat Loss?

I'm in need of a Good Fat Burner

Trim Spa
Hydroxy Cut
Slim Quick
Rapid Slim

Lose excess belly fat
Burn fat while you sleep
Block Carb, Block Fat
Increase your Energy
Stimulate your Metabolism

You have to get honest with yourself here and ask, do such miraculous results really come in a bottle? Is there an really easy way out?

~ Easier than choosing to eat supportive foods over the dead, overly processed crap?

~ Easier than scheduling the time needed to challenge your body with effective exercise over sitting all day long?

~ Easier than making excuses and blaming external situations over taking responsibility for your daily thoughts and actions?

Sorry, no matter how much we wish, hope and pray - there is so quick and easy short cut when it comes to boosting our metabolism and losing the stubborn fat.

Especially when it comes to fat burners and the pills that promise super fast fat loss. Sure, we can be easily mislead to believe that such solutions exist. We see the before and after pictures and wonder why it can't produce the same results for us.

Well first of all, research flat out continues to show that these products are ineffective. In fact, a recent scientific review paper in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded there is no substantial evidence that any fat loss products evaluated (which was most on the market) are effective. And those that showed any evidence, produced effects that are barely worth the money we pour into the companies pockets.

Sure, a combination of appetite suppressants, stimulants, compounds that make your stomach feel "full," and diuretics may initially result in "weight loss" but
taking a pill does not magically fix the underlying reasons why you gained weight in the first place. You did not gain weight overnight, why would taking a pill make all the reasons why you gained weight disappear?

Then you have to ask, how long do you expect to take these pills?
Have you considered the cost involved?
The negative side effects?

Even more intriguing....What will happen when you stop taking the pill? Especially the fat burners that contain an appetite suppressant.

Here are the facts:
+ Not eating will only will slow your metabolism.
+ Not exercising - or choosing an ineffective method to exercise - will only cause you to lose your lean muscle which will in turn cause you to end up with an even slower metabolism.

Just like there is no Easy Button to get through the daily toils of life, there are no short cuts when it comes to the steps you must take to effectively boost your metabolism and burn more fat.

At the heart of every effective fat loss program is the concern for the development of a natural Fat Burner - Muscle!

Plain and simple - Muscle Burns Fat

Muscle is the single most important factor that determines how much fat and how many calories you burn throughout the day and even while you sleep! The more lean muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, the more efficiently your body burns fat.

If muscle makes you cringe, then you need to get used to a thin, soft, flabby body. For lean, toned, fit bodies have lower body fat and a lot of lean muscle. Get to the heart of why you are hesitant to give Resistance Training a chance - - - > Here

While there are two and only two supplements I recommend when it comes helping you reach your fat loss goals, the "magic" fat burner pill is not one of them. Why not invest in supplements that actually have positive side effects?

A Healthy Body burns more fat than an unhealthy body
Take a whole food supplement to fill in the gaps in your nutrition plan. Try VGF+25!

Besides feeling good about giving your body what it needs to have a healthy metabolism, the herbal blend for women is the closest thing to magic as it tames the hormones! Gotta love that!

How about a "pill" that does have proven benefits - Omega 3's - EFA Icon a unique formulation of Antioxidants, Neptune Krill and high quality Omega 3’s.

Numerous studies over the past 10 years suggest that the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish may help you burn more fat or at the very least that they play an important role in the fat burning process, or that a deficiency could inhibit fat burning.

Play it safe and make sure your Omega 3's intake is covered with EFA Icon.

Fit Yummy Mummy Amazing Fat Loss Results

I’m a Big Fat Loser

"This is not a derogatory comment. This is a fact.... a great fact!!! I am a loser of fat in a big way!

I started the Fit Yummy Mummy lifestyle change on November 12th. So that makes 12 weeks now that I have been participating in this way of life.

I'll admit, I was a slight skeptic at first. Not because of Holly's program, but because of ME! I was starting this right before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Was I crazy? And if you've read any of my bio, you know that I have tried several different ways to lose weight in the past and have succeeded at most initially, but then I seem to fall back into my old, safe, easy way of life habits.

Well, not any more! I have made a promise to myself, my husband, and both of my daughters that this is not going to be the case with me anymore. Besides, how can I not be motivated with the results I've had?

I know, I know... you all want to know the results. Hold on...I'm getting there. I just want to make a couple more points to prove to everyone that Holly really is a genius (in case you didn't know) and show that Fit Yummy Mummy really works even when you aren't doing it exactly the way you're supposed to and even when you're own body has a medical condition that is working against you on a daily basis.

On top of just my own bad habits and not being completely true to the nutrition plan during the holidays..... I don't mean just the days of... I mean the events were held at my house and all the leftovers were "left over" at my house. So, I'll admit, we feasted for several days, not just one.

About the medical condition... I have Hypothyroidism and have been on medication for this for about 5 years now. No big deal right? Wrong! This is actually a very common condition and probably several of the women on this site might even have it too.

Without going into all of the specifics of the condition, just know that your thyroid regulates several hormones in your body and has a lot to do with your metabolism... meaning whether it's working for or against you.

Well, to make a long story short, my MD decided to change the brand of my thyroid meds back in May. Not the dosage... just the brand. So, should have been no big deal. I do repeat labs about every 6 months to re-check and since my cholesterol was creeping up at my last lab, she was going to check that again too. So, I went back to follow-up last week. Her first question was "haven't you been tired?" Well, yes I have been, but that's common for me.

Then she weighed me.

She said to me that my thyroid was so out of whack she literally "could not believe that I had lost any weight", especially the amount that I had!

A normal TSH level is 0.5---5.5 and mine was....... 30!!!

My own thyroid has been working against me all this time!!! ARGHHH!!! So, she changed me back to my original prescription, but unfortunately, it does take about 6 weeks to fully get back into your system and do everything that it should be doing.

So, to prove my point that Holly's Fit Yummy Mummy Lifestyle System works...... here's what you've all been waiting for... My results!!!

Chest --- lost 2 inches yeah!

Waist --- lost 1.5 inches wow!

Hips --- lost 4 inches woo hoo!

Thigh --- 1 inch

Arm --- lost 1.25 inches yippee!

Total inches lost = 8.75!!!!!!!!!

Total pounds lost = 10!!!!!

I just wanna say yeah, yeah, yeah!!! I feel wonderful! This really has been a life changing process for me. I still have a very long road ahead of me, but I'm ready and willing to get there no matter what it takes.

By the way, I am going to join the Transformation Challenge... so watch out!!

Just imagine... if I lost 10 pounds and 8.75 inches of fat in 12 weeks with my own body working against me... I can't wait to see what will happen when my thyroid meds really start working.

Holly, thank you so much for creating a system that really does work for any person who puts their mind to it. I wanna shout from the rooftops about how great you and the Fit Yummy Mummy system are..... and I would if my roof didn't have such a steep pitch!!!

You are so supportive in every aspect and like I said before I feel like I have my own personal cheerleader... you. Thanks, again.

Just remember all you FYM's who may read this..... if I can do it, you can do it. Just get your mind in the right place before you start and do everything Holly tells you to do, no matter what you may have read in some fitness magazine about burning calories or that cardio is the key, etc, etc,... Listen to Holly and you can soon be a "Big Fat Loser" just like me!!!"

The Secret to Flat Sexy Abs

How to Burn Belly Fat and get a Flat Tummy

"I want to get rid of the belly fat What exercise can I do that will help?"

This is by far the most frequently asked question I receive on a daily basis. After you read this article you will have the formula for success.

However, due to the fact that many women have difficulty letting go of what they think works - only a small percentage of you will actually take what I have to share and apply it. These are the women who will be proud to wear anything that respectfully displays their beautiful, flat tummy.

Sure! Including Ab exercises as part of your routine is beneficial for strength purposes, but the truth is - no amount of "ab exercises" will make the fat on your belly disappear and help you achieve flat, sexy abs.

Doing hundreds of crunches a day will do nothing to flatten your tummy. It is my hope that I will help you bust through the "Spot Reduction Myth" once and for all.

As far as Fat Loss and “exercise” goes - you must know that you need to use a total body approach – using resistance training to work your upper body, lower body and core with exercises that incorporate many muscles at once.

This is the ONLY way to exercise that will significantly boost your metabolism so your body begins to burn more fat and calories which will reveal the Lean Toned look you are after.

Some of the best "ab exercises" actually use your whole body! (work your abs, use more muscles, increase your metabolism....that's the way to go!) See a couple of my favorite "crunch free" exercises below!

The "Abs" that you want to work through crunches are you little in return as far as calorie burn. You can Burn double or even triple the amount of calories by doing full body resistance training exercises.

Fat loss is a total body process
As you burn more calories than you take in, you release more fat, you
cannot choose where this fat comes from.

In order to lose fat, you must focus on three core principles. You need the right nutrition, the right workout, and the right amount of time to lose the belly fat and reclaim a fit and beautiful body.

1. Eat Right - Supportive nutrition is extremely important, not only to keep you energized, but to provide your boys with quality nutrients to create a healthy metabolism and burn more fat. You CANNOT achieve great abs if you are putting junk into your body - no matter how great your workout program is.

2. Short Burst Exercise - A progressively challenging, full body resistance training program provides your body with the ability to create a supercharged metabolism and a lean, fit, toned body. Fit Yummy Mummy provides workouts designed to increase lean muscle and burn fat all in less than 90 minutes per week.

3. Rest - Sufficient rest and recovery is necessary to allow time for body to improve, maintain and repair your muscles, so you increase your metabolism and burn more fat. Doing more exercise will hinder your results.

Fit Yummy Mummy
focuses on providing solid facts and quality information in these areas to help you meet your fat loss goals in order to achieve a fit and yummy you!

Crunch-Free Ways to Work Your Abs

One Leg Plank - Hold for 20 seconds each leg

Boat Pose - Hold for 20 seconds

In need of some extra motivation to get your body ready to show off a flat sexy tummy in time for Bikini Season? I am holding the First Ever

"This Challenge is exactly what I needed to keep the intensity and motivation UP!! What will you think of next?! : ) I can't wait to see everyone's end result! Everyone seems really pumped for it! Thanks for being the awesome coach that you are!" Marloes

"I'm really blown away at the courage shown by everyone putting their pictures and stats out there, and the encouraging posts that everyone is getting is awesome! That's what this is all about...we all want to be the best that we can be, you are showing us the way and we now have each other for support and encouragement. This is really just an amazing website that you have created!! Thank You!!" Karen

"You know, you helped me so much to kick this (along with the other mommies who encouraged me too). When I first asked you about it, you gave me the freedom to "tweak " the plan depending on the results I wanted. That was freeing. however, I got to thinking - Darn it - I want the best results possible!! Why go through all the effort and then sabotage myself! I want to be the fittest and yummiest possible! So I may need to reread all these encouraging words in the future, but I know this piece of the puzzle is where it needs to be going!" Angela

Fit Yummy Mummy Burns Belly Fat

Will Fit Yummy Mummy Help Me?

Rita Lee's 2 week Results

"I was tired of people asking me if I'm pregnant!"

"I am on my third week now and I have noticed subtle changes. Talk about a confidence booster.

Just knowing that you are doing something that actually really works and you are not killing yourself with hours of exercise is wonderful.

It also makes it really easy to follow and stick with instead of giving up because the results just are not there because you notice a difference the first week.

It may not be on the outside but the change in attitude, energy, and confidence in yourself certainly stands out. I am so glad I found Holly too and everyone at ClubFYM!

I've only been doing this for almost 2 weeks but just changing my eating habits has made me feel so good on the inside and I think that confidence is what others are seeing. I have lost 3 pounds so far and I feel my belly isn't as big. My shirts are starting to fit slightly looser on the belly and I'm not so self conscious about my belly.

Prior to starting all of this I was at a bridal shower were everyone thought I was pregnant. After I told them no they asked how old my youngest was and when they found out she was over a year they really didn't have much else to say after that (kind of like, you had time to lose the belly so why don't you?). A lady actually told me it's a shame to have such a belly where the rest of me is slender and that I should really work on my belly.

So, all in all, I feel fantastic!

I haven't been doing FYM long enough to see complete photo changes but little changes are obviously apparent.

I think the feeling good inside is what keeps me going...not even the outside. I have felt so gross on the inside for so long.

The workouts are making me feel strong and energetic.

ClubFYM is also a total motivator. I don't feel like I'm doing this alone. I read so many fantastic stories and comments. It's so wonderful having a network like this.

Holly, I think you are the answer to what I have been looking for. I don't think I've had a better trainer than you. You are fantastic and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for starting this.

I think I was just lucky to be on facebook that one day and see your ad and click on it. That little click has changed my life. I feel so much better about myself which I think has made me a better mom.

I look forward to continue to do this. If I feel this fantastic after 12 days, how good am I going to feel after 12 weeks! Bikini weather here I come!!!
