In six months, she lost 50 pounds and three dress sizes before losing another 25 pounds.

Laura Kukulovski weighed in at 94kg in February 2021 and said she “gained quite a bit” during her third pregnancy.

Laura had a caesarean that healed quickly, but noted that her body “wasn’t the same” compared to her two previous pregnancies.

“My stomach was just a big bulge and no matter what I did, I just couldn’t get rid of it,” she said.

She later found out she had diastasis recti and didn’t think anything could reverse the damage, but then she discovered the online program and was inspired to follow it and study fitness.

She did light walks and postpartum home workouts that lasted between 15 and 30 minutes. She also followed a meal plan consisting of recipes like lasagna and casseroles made with fresh and clean whole grain ingredients.

Laura’s Typical “Day on the Plate”

Breakfast – A grab-and-go snack made earlier in the week, like overnight oats or a smoothie

snacks – Something crunchy like paprika parmesan chips or a sweet treat like healthy cinnamon rolls (recipe on website)

Having lunch Something fresh and simple like rice paper rolls or a Thai beef salad

dinner – Slow cooker meals as they are so easy to throw together

dessert – Anything that includes some chocolate or a warm muffin with some ice cream

Today, Laura weighs 58.5 kg, but like everyone else, she had a number of setbacks during her weight loss journey.

“I’m only human, but every day is a new chance to start fresh and put that setback back on a learning curve,” she said.

She also feels significantly less bloated and has more energy, and her general attitude towards food has changed.

“I used to hate food because it made me feel gross and lazy, now I look forward to what I’m going to try next,” she said.

“My favorite snacks and dishes are the pepper and parmesan chips, the Thai beef salad, the rice paper rolls, and the cinnamon rolls.”

For those looking to lose weight, Laura suggested taking it “one day at a time” and believing in yourself rather than letting your thoughts get the better of you.

“If I could give one piece of advice, it would be to not put so much pressure and stress on yourself,” she said.

“The more I worried and stressed, the less my measurements and scale changed. Once I let go and started enjoying my journey, I really saw the results.”
