Mother's Day Gift Giving Guide -- New Mommy Makeover: For a Fit and Firmer You (Review)


If you follow my blog, then you know that I welcomed two daughters, Savannah Rose on July 19, 2010 and Arabella Sofia on 11/10/11. Both pregnancies were not a walk in the park. Oftentimes, I had to be treated for dehydration due to constant vomiting, or was on bed rest. These and other pregnancy symptoms left me unable to exercise like I wanted to during the pregnancies. And, having only 6 months between conceiving, I didn't have enough time to lose all the baby weight I gained during my first pregnancy. As a result, after Arabella was born, I was left with the 15 pounds I gained with her, and the 10 pounds I had left to lose from my first pregnancy. Even though I am very active during the daytime, while taking care of the girls, I need to make sure I pencil in time in the early AM, or after they go to bed, to exercise and lose these remaining. But, these past couple of months, I haven't seen the pounds coming off. This is frustrating to see, when I step on the scale each week and notice I am staying the same or gaining a pound here and there. Because of this, I began looking for at-home fitness DVDs geared towards moms that I could try, in hopes that I would finally be able to shed all the baby weight once and for all. During my search, I came across the New Mommy Makeover DVD set, and reached out the vendor to see if I could review this 3-phase DVD set. 

Colleen kindly sent me the DVDs, and over the past few weeks, I have been using them each night. Each DVD contains 3 30-minutes exercise workouts, which progressively get more challenging. I love that you can workout alongside another mom, who understands your fitness concerns. Each workout addresses different intensity levels, so that everyone, no matter your fitness level, can participate.  In addition to the exercises, this set also comes with a nutritional manual written by a dietitian/nutritionist who specializes in pre/post natal women. New Mommy Makeover was reviewed as one of the top six postnatal DVDs in the 2011 April/May issue of Fit Pregnancy Magazine, and recently won First Place for the 2011 Parenting Awards. You can visit for more information.
Within the first week, I found myself finally losing weight again. In the first week alone, I dropped 5 pounds. You don't know how elated I felt when I stepped on the scale. Since my first weigh in, I continue to drop at least 2-3 pounds a week. My goal is that by the end of June, I will say goodbye to those dreaded pregnancy pounds, and finally fit back into my old jeans, which I had to move to the back of the closet. Right now, this is a work in progress, but I will let you know how things progress as the weeks go by. 

If you recently welcomed your new bundle of joy or will be shortly, why not pick up New Mommy Makeover today, to help you shed the baby weight.  I know we don't want to think about it, but summer is right around the corner -- meaning bathing suit season.  For myself, I want to look my best, as I enjoy the weather and pool time with my girls.  Don't you?
