Busy Mom Struggling To Lose Weight Found An Adorable Solution To Her Problem.

When you become a parent, your whole world becomes about your baby. Ensuring they are fed, cleaned, happy, and loved is all in a day's work. It is all too common for women to lose themselves and forget to take care of their health. Feelings of guilt like not spending enough time with the child or simply exhaustion, are all legitimate reasons moms don't exercise.

But many fitness experts dispel that idea. By eating healthy and exercising you will have a clear mind and more energy to be there for yourself and your baby. One mom found that she could incorporate her fitness routine while playing with her daughter. It turned out to be a mommy-daughter time while reaping the benefits of losing weight and getting strong.

Danielle Jones is just like all the mothers out there who gained weight while pregnant.

The 32-year-old gained 54 lbs but she was determined to shed them as soon as possible. When her daughter Honor was only a couple months old, Danielle started going to the gym.

The Georgia resident lost 60 lbs in the process. She credits her success to her strong willpower and her daughter Honor.

According to Danielle, Honor has been her biggest inspiration to reduce the flab, as she joined her mom and was there when she was doing sit-ups, push-ups, and weightlifting.

Danielle, who is a personal trainer, went up three dress sizes prior to giving birth. A year later, she had dropped two dress sizes.

After Honor's birth on September 2014, Danielle started exercising at home and noticed that her little girl was copying all her moves. Honor loves exercising with her mommy so much, she was the one reminding her about working out.

"When I started losing weight, I said (to Honor), 'You did this to Mommy.' She made me gain weight while I was pregnant, so she had to help me lose it," Danielle says.

"We were always together so I thought, I'll do this with her there, and I'd go to the gym and have her there in her car seat. At first she'd barely move, but then I noticed her crawling and she started to copy me," she reveals.

Danielle admits to indulging in cookies and ice cream while pregnant.

Danielle tried dieting but she found out that when she did, she couldn't produce milk for Honor. She put dieting on hold until her daughter was 10 months old and was eating solid foods. Meanwhile she started working out at the gym and at home, playing music that both loved.
