Meet Rhiannon, A Superstar Mom Taking Back Control of Her Life

Check out Rhiannon’s amazing journey as she has taken her life back, one decision at a time. She’s an incredible example of hard work and determination! 

Q: How did you find IdealShape?
A: I found IdealShape through browsing the internet for meal replacement shakes. I did not want to use an MLM company and just have people telling me whatever I wanted to hear to buy their products. So, while searching I found IdealShape and it had pretty great reviews. So I thought I would give it a try.

Q: What motivated you to lose the weight?
A: I have been tiny my entire life. When I hit 30 the weight just started sticking. I ended up getting pregnant and gaining 70 pounds. It was hard to lose it after having my daughter. I became so hard on myself. I was insecure, body shamed myself, and became extremely depressed.

I wouldn’t go out my house. I would just isolate myself inside and emotionally eat. And if I did leave, I would try on all the clothes that I had, and just have extreme anxiety about how I looked. Every time I walked out of the house somebody would end up rubbing my stomach and asking me if I was pregnant again. So, needless to say, I always saw myself as fat and gross, and would think about what everyone was saying.

The pain got great and I realized that I needed to do something for me. It wasn’t about anyone else. But because of my low self-worth, my health, and depression I hardly ever left my home, which inevitably meant that neither did my kids. It was definitely time for a change. Also, when I have depression and anxiety, it doesn’t just affect me, it affects all those around me.

Q: What are some of your favorite activities that keep you active?
A: I’m pretty busy. Not only am I a mother of two, but I also nanny. So, I’m always pretty active. I think some of my favorite things that I like to do are taking my kids places and doing things with them.

Q: What are your favorite Ideal products?
A: IdealShakes: Cookies n’ Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Vanilla.

Besides the amazing tasting shakes, I love the S’Mores IdealBars, and the Ideal Chips. I also use the probiotic supplement and IdealBurn.

I’ve replaced my coffee with IdealBoost, which surprisingly works great.

Q: Have you felt more confident in yourself knowing that you have accomplished this big goal? Why?
A: Of course. I mean I’m not where I would like to be yet. So there are moments that I can still be hard on myself. It definitely feels better to be healthy. Not so much my weight, but my anxiety and depression are almost at a zero. That’s what I’m most proud of.

I also never realized how food can play a part in that. I have noticed that when I stick to the program, I am calm and not anxious, or even tired. The moment I eat junk food my hands shake and I am so fatigued. It feels great to be in control of my mental health as well as my physical. That is something I’ve never done or accomplished.

Q: Have you been inspired to try anything new in life since hitting your goal?
A: I would love to put something really inspiring and exciting here, but the answer is no. I think the best thing besides what I’ve mentioned previously is my confidence. I’m getting married and when my wedding dress came in I cried. I cried because it was the first time in a long time that I felt so incredibly beautiful. I wasn’t trying to hide parts of my body, or worried if people would think I was pregnant because I was fat.

It was just me, in that moment, content and confident with every part of me.

Q: Was there anyone that influenced you or supported you through your journey and what was it that helped you the most?
A: Obviously my fiancé and my kids. However, the people who truly understand what I’m going through; the struggles and the success, are the ones on this journey with me. Those people are in the IdealShapers Facebook group. There is no judgment. We are all there to help and guide each other. It’s pretty amazing.

Q: What tips would you give others just starting their journey?
A: Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. For me, if I do, it automatically sets me up for failure.

If you end up getting off track, don’t stress about it. Just pick back up. Think of your top three goals that you wanted from trying this company. In a few months (if you stay diligent) you will exceed that, and see parts of your life change and transform bigger than you could imagine.

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: I wake up. I do a little quiet time. I drink a shake. I use unsweetened almond milk, scoop of the shake, mashed half banana, tablespoon of raw oats (I do not drink soft drinks anymore, only water).  I go to work. If I’m tired, I drink an IdealBoost or take an IdealLean. It gives me the energy to get through the day, handle multiple babies, without feeling jittery.

At some point, I have a healthy snack. That looks like one of these: fruit, cheese, nuts, peanut butter, IdealChips, or IdealBars. Then a shake for lunch, then a snack. At dinner I eat whatever I want.

I’m from the south and my fiancé is a chef, so we are always cooking. The great thing is, from eating the shakes consistently I don’t want huge portions. I use a small plate and it fills me up.
