My name is Niuska, I'm 35 years old, I am from Venezuela and I have been living in Ireland for seven years.
I’ve been overweight since my childhood. Few years ago I decided to move to Ireland, where I met the love of my life and got married. Soon enough after we decided to have our first child. She is the most beautiful thing ever happen to me, but during my pregnancy I gained nearly 30 kilos. I got to a stage where I weight 94 kilos.
I started to think that my so-called “normal” weight just wasn’t realistic for me. It would mean a life of permanent hunger. I avoid constantly take pictures of myself, simple things like walk start getting difficult. Then I decided such a life wasn’t necessary. I decided I must do something.
Inspired by my friends who were taking the healthy eating options, and to not just follow any specific diet, I decided to try to lose my weight without stopping eat, I decided to enjoy the benefits of healthy food.
While trying this new behaviour I Lost 30 Kilos, I returned to my ideal weight. Then I got pregnant again, unfortunately, I regain the same amount of weight I lost few months before.
After my 2nd baby was born, I decided to try again. This time I wanted to make this part of my routine in life, This time I created delicious recipes using only healthy foods, replacing carbs, sugar etc with natural carbs, naturals sugars. I created healthy recipes and delicious meals, snacks, desserts, juices, etc.
My daily routine is Green juice starting, Healthy breakfast, Mid-Morning Snack, lunch, Mid-Afternoon snack and Evening dinner, also includes workout 3 times per week.
I also created a WhatsApp group where I could help other friends, who were in the same situation as me, facing the same physical and psychological problems because of the overweight. I decided to create a challenge group which can be followed on Instagram #pesosaludablechallenge.
Now my current weight is 60,8 Kg and I feel so happy having achieved my dream of a returning to my ideal weight. I have returned to the real me and I feel so proud of being able to help more women who’s wish is to able to achieve the same."
