5 tips to get back on track
How to Create Lasting Change
Your mindset is the most important ingredient for achieving success. The reason is your mind controls your actions. Here are 5 tips to train your brain to get in shape.
1. Decide what is most important to you.
You need to be clear on why you want to lose weight if you are going to succeed at shedding the kilos and keeping them off. The truth is, there are two drivers that motivate human behaviour - the desire to gain pleasure and to avoid pain.
In order to create lasting change, you need to change what you link pleasure and pain too.
Link pleasure to losing weight. Link pain to not losing it.
Will you choose the pleasure of eating that piece of chocolate cake for 5 minutes or the enjoyment of achieving your weight loss goals? What is more important to you?
The benefits of losing weight outweigh the effort it takes.
Ask yourself what benefits weight loss will bring. Short-term benefits, such as increased energy levels, improved sleep, boosted moods, or just feeling better about ourselves, can be achieved through weight loss. Long-term benefits, such as improving your immune system, reducing the risk of disease, living a longer life and being active for longer in life, can all be achieved through weight loss.
The emotions behind your goals will truly motivate you.
Visualise the new you. How will you feel? Will you feel happier? More energetic? More self-confident? Now ask yourself what pain you will experience if you don’t lose weight. Do the benefits of losing weight outweigh the pain of not losing weight?
Now that you’re in the right head-space, make change a must for yourself and commit 100% to it. It’s not a question of whether you can do it, it’s a question of how badly you want it.
2. Embrace your power.
There are many internal and external influences on us that shape our behaviour. But at the end of the day, we're in control of what we put in our mouths and how much exercise we get.
Out of all people in our society, we mums have the most demands and challenges thrown at us. We are often juggling the needs of our young ones with managing a household, and all with a lack of sleep!
Get back in control.
By recognising that we have the final word in decisions on what to eat and how much we move, we can realise a sense of power. When all else in our lives may feel chaotic, we need to realise we are the ones in control of what we eat. Embracing that power can give us back a sense of control.
3. Believe in yourself.
Millions of mums the world over have lost weight and it is possible for you too. We are all human. Believing that weight loss is possible for you opens up your mind and increases the likelihood of you taking the steps necessary to lose weight.
Believing in yourself makes it that much easier to shut yourself off from the temptation of cheating on your plan.
Dip into your huge human potential.
Regardless of any past failed weight loss attempts, recognise that you can take the necessary steps to lose weight. Don’t allow limiting beliefs to linger in your mind. If a defeatist thought pops into your head, kill it immediately and replace it with a positive thought. If you think “I might as well have the chocolate bar, I’m never going to lose the weight anyway” immediately eliminate that thought and replace it with something positive like “I can do this!”.
Don’t get overwhelmed by your big goal.
Just take it one step at a time. You don’t need to think about your overall weight loss goals, just focus on the individual steps in the process. This allows you to break a big scary goal down into its many easy, smaller steps. You’re not saying no to chocolate cake forever, you’re just substituting that piece of chocolate cake with a piece of fruit for this moment. And don’t beat yourself up if you screw up. We are all human and we all fail sometimes. The trick is to pick ourselves up after we fail and get back to it with even more determination.
4. Change your strategy.
Realise that your current body is a result of your past behaviours and actions. Every day is a new opportunity to change your future. In Shape Mummy is your new strategy to achieve the change you desire. Life is challenging with a baby but this program is here to help and make everything easy for you.
5. Get Started.
You can’t wait for motivation to strike before getting started because you could be waiting a long time. The trick is to tap into your willpower to get started.
It takes far less willpower to motivate ourselves if we start small.
It would take heaps of willpower to get most of us out for a 30 minute run. But a 5 minute walk around the block is far easier to get ourselves to do. Each day you can build on it and before you know it you’ll have a new healthy habit.

"I'm loving it so far.. I'm already down from in weight and I feel great :) Not exaggerating when I say this is the best purchase I ever made .. can't wait to get to my first mini goal of 65kgs then set my new goal of 60kgs :) .. so far it's been life changing, thank you so much!! It has literally boosted my milk supply. I used to pump 160mls and now I average 240mls .. I've never been able to get that."

"I've lost 35 kgs thanks to the In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. 110 kgs to 75 kgs! Juggling two little boys under 2 years old doesn't leave much time for healthy choices for Mummy and the In Shape Mummy Health Shake is such an easy solution to get all the goodness I need to keep going! My older son is 20 months and I didn't get the chance to lose the weight gained whilst carrying him before I was pregnant again with baby #2. I easily gained 40kgs across the two pregnancies and no thanks to terrible pelvic pain in pregnancy #2 wasn't able to keep active. Now that my second son is here and the pelvic pain has gone I have stuck to replacing breakfast with my shake and walking every morning for the duration of the morning sleep. Some days I will do a second shorter walk during his nap. I'm still able to enjoy yummy healthy foods and definitely do not feel like I'm going without. I no longer crave sugary foods as the shake sets me up for the day with its magical satisfying ingredients! The shake has become even more of a must since returning to work! If I thought I was busy before, life just got a whole lot busier! Now that I've lost the weight, I have more energy, zero aches and pains and have a better mood. I tell all my friends about In Shape Mummy because easy weight loss doesn't need to be a secret! Xx"

"I discovered In Shape Mummy Health Shakes not long after my second baby was born. He has an intolerance to dairy so I was looking to find something that was safe for breastfeeding, and also vegan friendly. I have recently started a detox program with the help of a naturopath. She was so impressed with the ingredients that she has encouraged me to continue having it! In Shape Mummy has not only helped me lose the 26 kgs I put on in pregnancy, but it’s helped me nourish my body when I’ve been time poor and sleep deprived. It’s the only shake that I actually enjoy the taste of! My breakfast everyday includes ice, almond milk, water, a banana and my In Shape Mummy (my current fave is the caramel fudge!). At 11 months postpartum I feel great! And my breastfeeding journey is still going strong - my milk is in perfect supply for what Bub needs. I cannot recommend In Shape Mummy Health Shakes more highly!”

"I have lost over 30kg with In Shape Mummy Health Shakes, exercise and a complete diet change. I started at size 22 and am a loose size 12 at the moment… and nearly a 10! I feel so much better! With my injuries in my spine, pelvis and knee my weight loss has been the best thing for my pain.
7-8 months ago I couldn’t have even imagined I could drop this much weight! The change in my life has been insane! My advice to other mums is “stick with it and don’t give up!” Thanks so very much for your In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. They are the best thing for mums on the go and while breastfeeding as well. Words can not express how grateful I am with my weight loss. I couldn’t of started this without your shakes. My life is forever changed."
