Much to my surprise, I gained 50lbs after having Isabella! From clearly looking at my postpartum pictures, I can see that it was not all baby weight. I now had nasty cellulite and fat in unwanted areas. Looking in the mirror led to feelings of intense frustration and at times, I even started to doubt whether I would be able to get rid of the excess weight completely.

Despite being elated beyond belief about the birth of my baby girl, the dissatisfaction with my reflection made it difficult for me to enjoy the things around me. These feelings fueled my determination to get back in shape. Resolve has shaped my transformation and is a true testament of sheer diligence.
