Negativity sometimes derives positivity and often brings transformation which is lovely…
Yes, something similar happened to a mom, who was insulted by a kid and that one slander changed her life for good. In our midst, there are several moms, who exhaust bigger part of their lives serving their kids and not caring about their own body. Most of the time, our mothers have to face some abusive comments for their excessive weight which is not their fault at all.
Though it’s our duty to respect our progenitors irrespective of their shape and size but there are ways too for mommies to keep themselves in the perfect model.
Today, we have an inspiring story of a Mom by the name of Peggy Pullen who after receiving a nasty comment by the kid decided to go for a complete makeover. In this section, we will see challenges, initiatives, insights, and results of her hard work and sacrifice.
The life of Peggy was full of challenges as she gained a lot of weight post pregnancy of two children. She was serving her kids as a dedicated mother for 10 whole years and not looking much after herself.
She invested half of her life in changing diapers and homeschooling kids. Being, a devoted wife, she always helped her husband in the church by cooking foods for hungry arrivals.
She, herself, reported in an interview to the bodybuilding that she had tried almost every pill and 30-minute workout regimes which promise to change the shape overnight. But her bad luck, none of them worked.
The real incidence which proves to be turmoil in her life was the stinging abuse by a child comparing her with the hippopotamus. It took her hard and she was hurt by this comment. She feels disgusted about herself and was desperate to go for the transformation.
After that nasty comment, Peggy was really determined to go for a makeover but the real thing which motivated was her kid. Her kid loves piano and she wanted to get him admitted in the music class and gift him a grand piano. Then there came 200k dollar transformation contest which motivated her to get into the shape.
Though Peggy loved cooking and had a great sense of healthy stuff but her usual food was not suitable for a chiseled body. Initially, she uses to take a lot of salad post workout but soon came to know that it was a- big waste of time.
After that, she started taking the bigger amount of protein in her meal and swapped sauce-covered meats for lean meats. Slowly and gradually, she started to make an account of stuff, she ate.
At first, she was not aware of the work out which would suit his body. She continued to do random exercises to get into shape and win the contest. But after some time, she realized that it’s not going to work and a proper guidance is required.
Soon, she discovered the blueprint program of a famous bodybuilder- Arnold Schwarzenegger. The program and motivational videos of Arnold motivated her to work consistently even at the time of negativity.
Along with Arnold’s program, she was benefited by Body space and bodybuilding. She learned about muscle and how it burns fat than anything. Later she followed the trainer closely.
