Twelve years ago life gave me a wake-up call so that I would change my lifestyle. I realized I have the “obesity genes” That tendency of gaining weight just by looking at a cake, lol. I gained 12 kilos (about 26 lb in 4 months). My genetics betrayed me and my insulin levels started to rise and the doctor told me that, if I stayed on the same path I could become diabetic. I did not want that!
That moment I realized that I had to do something, of course, I didn’t know anything about nutrition or healthy eating (that wasn’t a family dinner topic at the time) So I had to figure it out and most importantly take action. I had to learn How to Turn the “Good” Genes On and the “Bad” Genes Off! And I’m happy to say now that I succeeded!!
Hear me well, I simply DECIDED to change and I manage to reverse that course. I learned how to adopt the habits of daily exercise and healthy eating, which I have kept for 5 years now. Now 11 years later those habits allowed me to stay active during my pregnancy last year. YES! with that belly I used to exercise (like a turtle, but I did it!) And those same habits have already allowed me to lose the 34 pounds I gained in pregnancy completely.
I know that staying on this path is what is going to lead me to have a healthy, healthy life, to be able to run and play with my son. I want to have a long life but above all have the quality of life
The habits to beat the genes
Research shows that exercise can keep those genes under your control and reduce your genetic predisposition of gaining weight by 40 percent! So if we activate our good genes with daily activity we can win the war! The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30 minutes of activity on most days of the week. And that’s how I exercise.
For 5 years now I have managed to live a healthy life, feeling full energy and vitality. I learned how to control my portions, how to nourish my body properly, and how to stay consistent with daily exercise. During my pregnancy, I maintained my daily workout routine and felt energetic. However, I gained 37 pounds!! My bad genes, the ones that accumulate fat easily, were active and that’s good. Our babies need us to gain fat so we can later nourish them. But! Now, after 10 months I’ve lost them all ? I am back to my healthy weight and in the process of reaching my goal of toning back my abdomen (as you see my belly was gianormous) I still have some loose skin that little by little is going to tone down!
