Fit Mom Sophie Guidolin Gained Significantly Less Weight During Her Third Pregnancy

Guidolin wants other women to know it’s never too late to overhaul your health

The fitness trainer in Australia, Sophie Guidolin, proves that fitness can completely change a pregnancy.

Posting side-by-side photos of her first pregnancy and her third pregnancy, the difference is clear. Guidolin is even carrying twins in the second photo and still her bump is much smaller than her first pregnancy. 

The fit mom credits the difference to her focus on nutrition and exercise while carrying the twins. Guidolin lived a very different lifestyle when she had her first two boys who are now 8 and 7 years old.

She tells PEOPLE, “My first pregnancy, I didn’t exercise at all.  I felt tired all the time and struggled with the labor and pregnancy. My third pregnancy, I exercised the entire time and continued to work all the way through the pregnancy.”

Guidolin completely changed her lifestyle with the third pregnancy and the hard work was well worth it. “I listened to my body, only ate meals from scratch—a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits—and had a clean lifestyle.” She gained only 37 lbs with the twins, while her first pregnancy she’d gained 62 lbs. 

Guidolin notes that the lifestyle change really helped her bounce back after the pregnancy as well. “I feel as though my fitness and strength that I continued throughout allowed me a better recovery.”

She shared the photo in the hopes of inspiring other women and letting them know it’s never too late to overhaul their health. “My personal experience has been worlds apart since changing my lifestyle, and I really want others to know that they too can make some positive changes in their life.”

“I wanted to inspire women who may have experienced a hard pregnancy previously that it is possible to change your lifestyle and completely change your own personal experience and health,” says Guidolin.
