LighterLife Celebrates Mother’s Day

March 20, 2012 - News

To celebrate Mother’s Day this year we asked our LighterLife Facebook and Twitter communities to share with us their inspiring ‘motherhood’ stories that helped them lead a Lighter Life.

This is what you shared…


I lost weight and became a mummy
‘…LighterLife really did change my life. I lost 9 stone on the programme and became a Mummy 12 weeks ago. I even met my husband to be at a LighterLife class – his class was ending as mine was starting. We’re getting married in 6 weeks time and are not looking back!’ Stephanie.

I’m expecting twins!
‘…I started LighterLife last year and lost over 4 stone to be ‘eligible’ for NHS IVF treatment and I am pleased to share that after 7 years of trying I am expecting twins! LighterLife has made me a Mummy as far as I’m concerned. Thank you so much!’ Nicola.

I managed to keep the weight off during pregnancy
‘…I started LighterLife in November 2010 and lost 3 stone. I fell pregnant in January 2011. I now have an absolutely beautiful daughter and have been back on the programme since January this year and have nearly lost a further 3 stone! I even managed to keep the weight off during my pregnancy and truly believe that being on LighterLife helped me reach the healthy weight I needed to be able to conceive after 8 years of trying! Thank you LighterLife – it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!’ Lisa.

I conceived 3 months after losing weight
‘…I was desperate to become a mum for over 5 years. I have polycystic ovary syndrome and was undergoing fertility treatment. It seemed the whole world was either pregnant. Then I started LighterLife and lost 5 stone. 3 months later I conceived naturally and am now a very proud mum to Alice, my beautiful daughter.’ Debbie.

I had the most amazing healthy pregnancy
…’We struggled to conceive due to my weight. In March 2009 I started my LighterLife journey, dropping from a size 18 to a size 10-12. In September of the same year my husband and I became pregnant via IVF. Although not a ‘natural’ conception, I had the most amazing healthy pregnancy and a textbook labour and birth in June 2010. This was my second Mother’s Day and still never a day goes by that I don’t thank my lucky stars for finding LighterLife.’ Lorna.

I found out I was expecting 6 weeks after losing weight for my birthday
…’I lost 9 stone for my 40th Birthday. 6 weeks after this I found out I was expecting my first child Jasmin. I gave birth in August 2008 and my daughter was the first baby I ever held. I had been told it was very unlikely that I would ever get pregnant naturally. My daughter is my pride and joy and the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you LighterLife.’ Jeanette.
