Mum depressed with size 18 frame after birth of first child drops seven stone while PREGNANT with second baby

Cassy Smith, 24, weighed 15st when she became pregnant with her second child – and business owner decided now was the time to fight the flab

A mum dropped an incredible SEVEN STONE and did it all while she was PREGNANT.

Cassy Smith, 24, weighed 15st when she became pregnant with her second child.

The business owner ballooned during her first pregnancy and said she became depressed with her size 18 figure.

Cassy from Kent said: “I had just had a baby and was so low in myself.

“I had gained so much weight and I was severely lacking in confidence.

“I began to suffer badly with depression and even have suicidal thoughts.”

Due to her weight Cassy also said she suffered with swelling in her hands and feet and had asthma and eczema.

Three months after giving birth to her daughter Cassy became pregnant with her and her husband Billy-Joe’s second child and decided the time was right to fight the flab.

In order to do so she joined Juice Plus – a diet based on juice powder concentrates from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains.

And in just seven months she had dropped a whopping seven stone, and now weighs a healthy 8st.
She said: “I had two shakes, two snacks and one meal per day.

“I made sure I ate the right amount of calories because obviously I was pregnant.

“I also cut out gluten wheat and dairy.”

Cassy said that onlookers “hated” the thought of her weight loss during pregnancy and believed it would be harmful to her baby.

However her daughter, Bunny-May was born on 9th June 2015 weighing a healthy 7lb 11oz – which was even heavier than her first born daughter, Delilah-Rose who weighed 6lb 11oz.

She said: “People hated the thought of it, as they thought it was unhealthy for the baby, but after speaking with specialists and midwifes I knew I was doing the right thing.

“It was more harmful for the baby me being over weight and unhealthy.

“I had a completely healthy pregnancy and lost all my weight.

“My bad skin disappeared, I am fit, healthy and stopped smoking.

“My second baby was actually born heavier then my first even though I was seven stone lighter.”

Following her transformation, Cassy is now a trim size six and has created a living out of her weight loss and has opened her own company, CeCe project Ltd – which sells health products.

She said: “Now I do it for a living and I have created an amazing business from it.

“It’s enabled me to provide for my family and my husband hasn’t had to work for two and half years, which has also changed my life financially.

“I’ve gone from living off benefits to being a six figure earner.

“I couldn’t be more proud of myself.”
