While it's true that your body is never quite the same after pregnancy, achieving your personal best body is an attainable goal once you make up your mind to do so. If you aren't mentally ready, you won't be successful. Your wheels may spin, but you won't get anywhere.

How do you know when you're ready? Trust me, you'll know. A light switch will turn on in your brain and there will be no turning back. You will cease making excuses and your rear will be in gear with a focus that you may have not been familiar with in a long time. The good news is that all of your hard work will pay off and the rewards will be immense.

Here are three tips to help you achieve your personal best body:

Tip #1: Be Honest: Be honest with yourself regarding the choices you've been making. You know whether or not you've been making smart choices regarding the foods you put in your mouth and how frequently you exercise. Honesty is the first step to changing your ways and making a positive change.

Tip #2: Stop Comparing: It is important to stop comparing your body to those of other women and focus on you! You must accept the body you have and work with it. Remember the goal is to achieve your "personal" best body, not to achieve Pamela Anderson's best body. Focus on what you can control which in this case is your health and fitness.

Tip #3: Commit to Yourself: You must commit to yourself and the process in order to succeed. You are in control of your choices and your work ethic. And, yes this will involve hard work! But anything worth having is worth working for. In the end, you will have your personal best body, an improved self-image, and your health to keep you motivated to continue on with your new lifestyle.

Health & Success,
