Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too never met Chantelle. She is a testament that you don’t have to put your life on hold to lose weight. Instead, you just have to become a mindful eater and start listening to your body.

She also shares her strategic approach to sticking to her healthy habits like food journaling, celebrating her wins, how she learned to trust the process of making sustainable lifestyle changes alongside the specific mindset, and strategies she used to lose weight to get her ready for a healthy pregnancy. I hope you feel inspired by this episode about staying positive and focused on losing weight in a realistic way, one cookie at a time.
