A new mother sought the help of Jenna Wolfe in order to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.
Jenna Wolfe helps a new mother to regain her post-pregnancy figure. Today producer, Patrice Poltzer became pregnant and everybody complimented her on her healthy glow. Then her womb started to show in the form of a baby bump and everyone praised her.
But somehow when she was unable to see ahead while climbing the stairs, she simply felt inadequate to cope with her problems. It was only when her son was born some nine months later that she realized that the baby bump she sported refused to go away.
Patrice Poltzer told Today: "I was that annoying (adorable) woman who only gained weight in the tummy and didn’t look pregnant from behind. That was me! I was that girl! Pregnancy just agreed with me, and I was more surprised than anyone."
That was when she thought she must do something about her unfit body. "It has now been eight months since my son was born and I am definitely in a better state of mind and much nicer to myself than I was in those first few months. I’ve returned to work —as a producer at TODAY —and feel truly ready to commit to the hard work it takes to get into shape," said Poltzer.
She got the aid of Today's Weekend anchor Jenna Wolfe and the two exercised and followed a diet regimen that had Patrice back in shape in no time. And although Patrice didn’t regain the exact level of fitness she enjoyed in her pre-pregnancy days, she came close which was a good thing.
It all started off with taking a long hard look at the diet that she was following. Many things had to go and there were some that had to be added to the diet.
Also, Jenna made Patrice monitor her intake very rigorously. Any extra food she used to consume mindlessly went out the window. She would not take that second or third slice of pizza and would forgo dessert in order to cut the calories.
And the vigorous exercise routine she followed under Jenna’s tutelage sure got rid of those extra flabby bits hanging around her midsection. Soon the fat-burning process started and from there onwards it was smooth sailing.
Jenna Wolfe was always there to buck up Patrice and she made it clear that every rep counted. Jenna pushed and prodded and made Patrice budge and thus was a source of motivation for the post-pregnant mom.
Patrice cannot thank Jenna enough for making her a fit and fantastic person once again after the pregnancy period. Now she will raise her little son with energy and enthusiasm.
