My “Love in a Diet” Plan

I had my 16th child two weeks ago. It was the healthiest delivery and Elijah is our healthiest baby of all. Here’s a truth that I must insist on: I am healthier at 16 children than I was at 6. And it has everything to do with the dieting fundamentals I lay out in my book, Love in a Diet.

I am putting together a plan to lose my baby-weight and get into shape. I want you to join me! If you have my book and need the little “umph” to get moving on the practices, now is the time. If you don’t have my book, order yours and we’ll ship it out 1st Class. And we’ve reduced the price to only $5 to encourage you! (Retail $14.95)

Only $5 for a limited time only

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Order Love in a Diet. Monument Publishing has marked this book down to $5, and it qualifies for reduced shipping rate.
  2. Friend our family Facebook account: www.facebook.com/jeubfamily. I’ll be posting on our website, but the day-to-day details will be posted on Facebook.
  3. Invite your friends to join you! Send them to this webpage (copy the address bar in your web browser) to get them kicked off.

I’ll be posting in the next week on my diet plans. You’re going to love this!

    You do look great & congratulations on your precious Elijah!

    I could definitely use the ideas and plans you are going to share, Wendy. I have been working for 2 years to lose baby weight (from the last four babies, mind you….) and I was doing really well until recently, and now, suddenly, my weight is going up, up, up! Near as I can tell I haven’t changed anything drastically…. help! PS. I do have your book… but I need motivation and encouragement more than anything else.

    • Wendy Jeub

      Start reading chapters 1 and 2.

    Congrats on the birth of Elijah. I enjoyed the video of him minutes after birth. I have 5 children (we did let God plan our family … I am in my 50’s now)… and haven’t read your book … but just feel concerned that anyone would be be attempting to lose weight so soon after having a baby. When you are breast feeding you actually need a few extra calories (a peanut butter sandwich worth) each day. I always breastfed each child til they were 18 – 24 months old… by the time they were about a year old I was back to my regular weight with no extra effort of dieting or exercising (beyond chasing them around). So I am hoping that you are just encouraging breastfeeding mothers to eat healthy, nap when their baby does and take the baby for a carriage ride each day. I would recommend leaving any serious dieting and exercise til baby is over a year old. Doing anything too strenuous in the early months could lower your milk supply.

      Dieting doesn’t just mean not eating as much, it means carefully choosing what you eat. Eating nutrient dense food is very important for nursing moms, and I’m hoping this is what Wendy’s diet is all about! My midwife has also encouraged me to work my abs starting at my 6 week postpartum appointment. After 3 kids and losing my weight easily, but never toning my abs, I had a really hard 4th pregnancy because I had no stomach muscles to hold the baby up and my round ligaments were doing all the work to hold my uterus! So, there is a healthy form of diet and exercise, and an unhealthy form also. I don’t have Wendy’s book, but from what I’ve seen from her in the past, I think she has a healthy perspective. Good points though!

      • Wendy Jeub

        Yes! Good points. With my book in hand you will do well to put a new perspective on your eating habits. I have been nursing and/or pg for 19 years now and I can tell you that it has to be done slowly and you have to make healthy choices. Thanks for your concern and that is not the approach I take. You do have to add in more when nursing. I do not think it is safe to try to diet when pg.

    Wendy, God bless you! Where can I see a sample of the book? A few pages I mean. Thank you. And CONGRATULATIONS on your newest & most healthy, happy precious baby! -Pamela

    I can’t wait to get started with you! I look forward to the journey…

      Just so you know it is not always a certain
      weight that is the answer, but for you to feel good and that you can be
      active. A weight number only matters if you take into consideration
      your height, build and muscles and so on and on… So it is a new way of
      thinking about yourself.

        You took the words right out of my mouth.  These are things I have been telling others for years.  My goal is to feel great and be healthy and strong.  We have never owned a scale and we don’t plan on ever getting one.  I know when I have gained or lost weight based on how my clothes fit.  I know unhealthy people who are the “correct” weight and I also know people who are extremely healthy that are considered overweight by the world’s standards.  Personally, I have kept on a few pounds from each of the last few pregnancies and I would like to shed them.  I also want back some of the energy I have lost from being rather inactive all winter. 

        I found your book to be a very refreshing view of “weight loss” and “dieting”.  I am excited to see what you have in store for all of us who have expressed an interest in joining with you.  Thanks for sharing your expertise with all of us.

    I am really looking forward to this, from today I am writing down everything that I eat. Although I have followed the plan before I have never done this because I have been too eagar to get started. Really need to shift this weight! Thanks Wendy you have inspired me to get started again!

  • http://www.apurposefullife.blogspot.com Heather

    I’m in!

  • http://profiles.google.com/heather.nations Heather Nations

    Is this something that I would be able to follow without buying the book? I will not be able to make any “extra” purchases until the end of June. I will keep up with your facebook updates and hopefully join in within a month and a half! :)

    • http://jeubfamily.com Wendy Jeub

       We have lowered the price significantly so more people can purchase it. Without the book you may not understand what all is going on. However, you are welcome to join in.

  • Pony Peterson

    I’m in too! Thanks for doing this!!

  • Alft77

    I’m so excited! Thank you for making this so affordable 😀 I am friends on facebook and ordered the book and also shared the link there. Can’t wait to get the book in the mail.

  • Just4jane4

    I am sold, if a book/plan can help a mother with 16, it can help me.  I don’t do facebook, is there anyway I can tune in by email? 

    • http://jeubfamily.com Wendy Jeub

       Sorry there is not be an email list. However, you can just check in here and will get most of it.

  • Rachel S.

    Wendy, how long is the book on sale for? I don’t have the $ just yet, should in a few days with pay day and bday coming :)   I am pregnant with baby #5 and actually feel quite healthy (even though I have been so sick during this pregnancy, flu 2x, morning sick, seasonal allergies, colds).  At this point, I am pretty sure I will lose all that I have gained in the first week or so after birth.  Anyway, I am interested in reading this book.  Also, is there a ways to see a sample to make sure it is something I will actually read?  LOL  Thanks!

    Rachel

    • http://jeubfamily.com Wendy Jeub

      You can look at the link for a sample. Also you can see some on Amazon.

    Wendy,
                    Can you post a sample menu of what you eat in a day? You stated in your book  that you only eat  “real” foods, do you ever eat low fat food?

    Crissy 

    • http://jeubfamily.com Wendy Jeub

       Hi Crissy, I can give a little run down: Breakfast- eggs and nothing else, 10:30 am snack apple or veggie, Lunch- 1 whole cucumber and chicken breast, snack small bowl of soup, Supper- potato, salad, German sausage. Coffee and chocolate in the afternoon.

      I don’t really like low fat food but you are free to eat it.

      What my plan does is prepare you for life not just a few months and then go back to life. So I eat what my family is eating just less.

  • Just4jane4

    Just got my book today, it was very easy to read.  I had just recently gotten into adding stevia to my coffee, I am anxious to try the walnut idea.   I did a review on the book on amazon,    Wendi, I thought one of your techie–kids could up load a photo for the amazon book? 

  • Karen

    Wendy, I love what you said in your book about keeping a list of tips that you find helpful.  I’ve found a few I’d like to share with you – I read that research shows that having a big breakfast (500-600 calories) helped people lose more weight by eating less later in the day.  They also said having a really whipped up fruit smoothie for breakfast or morning  snack helped people eat less.  Fiber filled foods like beans, veggies and whole grains also helps keep you full.  Even switching to raisin bran makes a difference!  Also, if you don’t have time to exercize 30 minutes at a stretch, doing 3 10 minute ones is just as good! 

  • Karen

    Oh and this is my absolute favorite tip!  And I have done this and it is true!  Fish oil tablets help you lose weight!  They did a study where one group took them daily for 12 weeks, and at the end of that time they had lost about 3 lbs. more than the control group!  That doesn’t sound like much but in a year would be 12 lbs!  It only worked when they also walked about 20 minutes every day though (as did the control group).  Don’t know why!
