Mom of 3 got tired of the extra weight, started walking with her kids to lose 100 pounds

October 23rd, 2020

Losing weight is definitely something which doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a whole lot of commitment, dedication and sheer willpower to get down to the size you want- and often it takes a while to even receive the wakeup call that tells you to lose weight in the first place.

While modern day society is (rightfully) celebrating gorgeous curvy woman, being dangerously overweight comes with a multitude of health problems, not to mention embarrassing and frustrating incidents in day-to-day life.

So when a stay-at-home mom in Houma, Louisiana became tired of carrying 231 pounds on her 5-foot-3 frame, she decided that enough was enough- and she was going to lose the weight once and for all.

Georgia Malbrough had spent most of her life overweight, and it’s a problem that she struggled with from an early age.

“We had to special order my cheerleading uniforms because I was a size 10 at age 6 years old,” Georgia, 27, told TODAY Health.

As well as the physical issues that come with being overweight, looking in the mirror became a habit that Georgia tried to avoid, and getting dressed was an ordeal in itself.

“I’d have a 30-minute breakdown before getting dressed,” Georgia recalled. “It wasn’t a habit I wanted to carry into my 30s.”

Determined to make a change, Georgia decided to make one simple step into the world of fitness, and started going on walks. As she became fitter, she gradually began to add in different types of exercise, and even found workouts that she enjoyed.

“I baby wore my newborn and walked about a mile at first and then I graduated to two miles,” Georgia recalled. After that, she started researching workout routines on Instagram and fell in love with kettlebell exercises.

Amazingly, the mom of three lost over 100 pounds, and her weight dropped to a healthy 128 pounds. To maintain her fitness levels, the new exercise-lover now does 40 minutes of strength training and 20 minutes of cardio, six days a week at the gym.

“The only way that your body can eliminate body fat is by burning more calories than you consume,” Georgia explained.

She also has some tips when it comes to diet and calorie counting:

“You do want to remember that all calories are not equal. One hundred calories of jelly beans is not going to be the same as 100 calories of apple slices and peanut butter,” Glassman noted. “One is going to provide healthy nutrients and satisfy you, and one may increase cravings and not provide you with any beneficial nutrients.”

Georgia confessed that she used to eat six waffles for breakfast, but now she lives her life by the calories in, calories out plan, and is able to make healthier choices. The inspiring mom now chooses to eat nutritious foods that fill her up over foods that only provide empty calories.

“I also try to make sure there’s not a ton of ingredients in whatever I’m eating,” Georgia said. “If I want ice cream, I just follow the portion size.”

It’s truly inspirational to see just how much Georgia has transformed herself over the last few years. And for anyone who’s just starting out, Georgia has a simple tip:

“Take one step at a time,” she said. “That’s all you have to do.”
