Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
Postpartum life can be difficult, and what doesn’t make it any easier is weight loss.
Unfortunately, our culture has told us that it’s unacceptable to gain more than a certain amount of weight throughout pregnancy and women should bounce back to their pre-baby bodies quickly.
But this advice seems to be doing more harm than good.
In this episode, I’m addressing this conversation with the help of Liz Henderson, host of the Tough Love Mom Podcast and a consistency coach for moms.
Even with an active life and healthy habits, she gained a lot of weight in both of her pregnancies but was able to lose it all by leaning on discipline, consistency, and simple habits.
In our talk, she shared the circumstances surrounding her pregnancies, how exactly she was able to lose the weight and keep it off, and her tips for creating consistency and a healthy mindset.
Some big takeaways are:
Liz’s story is inspiring, not just because of her weight loss journey, but because of the mindset she maintained and the habits she formed along the way.

Liz is a mom, wife, Christian, host of the Tough Love Mom Podcast, and consistency coach for moms.
Even with an active life and healthy habits, she gained a lot of weight in both of her pregnancies, so once she was postpartum, she had a long road ahead when it came to weight loss. Leaning on discipline, consistency, and simple habits, she lost 80 lb in 1 year after her 1st and 70lb in 14 months after her 2nd and now helps moms get disciplined and lose weight using the same principles, tools, and mindsets she used on her journey.
She believes that a lot of the messaging in mom culture can overly enable "the struggle" when really, we are so resilient deep down. So as "the tough love mom", she doesn't beat around the bush because she cares enough about mamas and their health - physical, emotional, and mental - to be straightforward and call out your strength.
