SG Kids: Chelsea’s Journey

In keeping with the theme of our latest newsletter, we asked Sleek Parent Ilana van Rensburg to tell us her daughter’s story so far:

My daughter Chelsea loves bread.  As a toddler she lived on peanut butter sandwiches.  We once were invited to a lunch and the spread was to die for and the poor host had to make her peanut butter sandwiches as she refused to eat the food.

I would not say that she is a fussy eater although she refuses to eat fish. She cannot stand the smell of it. She also does not eat tomato but for the most part, she’s easygoing.

When I started my personal journey, Chelsea was my greatest supporter and coach. She always went with me to gym and used to sit on the floor in the spinning class shouting: “go Mommy go!” Screenshot 2014-07-09 10.00.03

I never enforced my way of eating upon my kids but slowly they adopted my way of eating. Although Chelsea continued to eat bread. A lot of bread.

I made a point of not depriving the kids of “treats”… I always kept treats in the house. Biscuits and chips were always available. I always told them that I can eat whatever I want but I CHOOSE to not eat the biscuits and chips. And that it

I became concerned about her weight but never verbalised it. She was an active child.  She played netball and accompanied me to gym and enjoyed swimming and Zumba classes. I saw myself in Chelsea and I really did not want her to go through life like me. Fat. Everyone kept saying “oh she has puppy fat.” Thats what they said to me too. In my case the puppy fat stayed with me for 36 years. Puppy fat became dog fat.

I started showing Chelsea the progress Tyra was making and she became intrigued. When I started the 2014 Winter Challenge she asked me if she can try to lose weight as well and asked me to find out from Seone how Tyra had done it. I made contact with Seone and she gave me some advice.

The kids at school were teasing Chelsea and told her that she needs to wear a bra. She told me: “Mommy I want to prove to them that I don’t have to wear a bra!”

Miss C started her journey on heat 2 of the challenge and I was a bit sceptical at first but this little lady has shown serious determination and commitment. She made me take before pics and measurements and even wanted me to send them to Elan for accountability!Screenshot 2014-07-09 09.59.41

I always tell my kids that life is about choices and you need to live with the choices that you make. Actions have reactions and consequences.  And lastly you must do what makes you happy. Not anyone else, do it for yourself.

So today I am proud to say that Chelsea has lost 4,2kgs. She is active and healthy and she knows how to make better and healthier choices. Chelsea has not touched bread in 7 weeks.

School holidays have proven to be a challenge but we remain active and try to make the healthiest choices that we can.

The journey continues…..
