About Me

Hi and welcome to Mind Mood Mommy. My name is Laura and I’m a mum to two beautiful girls; Phoebe (5) and Esmé (1). I love baking, singing, photography, glitter and Spain (Ibiza in particular!). I feel most at home by the sea (despite living in the concrete jungle that is Birmingham!) and would love nothing more than to retreat to a Mediterranean country and live by the sea as a free spirit!

I began this blog as I am hoping to break a lifelong family cycle of body confidence issues so that my girls grow up with a healthy, happy attitude to their bodies and their lives.

I have always struggled with my weight, but over the years, I have been on a constant diet and have managed to mostly maintain a healthy weight for my height. However, having my youngest daughter, I gained 6 stone. I’ve now got 2.5 stone left to lose and my plan is to do it but to change my mind as well as my body.

Dieting to me means deprivation. I no longer want that sort of negativity in my life.

My aim is to lose the remaining weight simply by cooking from scratch and exercising. I plan to try as many new recipes as I can, cook them, review them and share them with you on my Recipes page. I also intend to continue and build upon my exercise by walking, yoga, pilates and gym ball exercises.

I have no idea what the outcome will be of this, but I am committed to it and I’m hoping that you’ll join me on my journey!

If you have a question, or simply want to say hi, drop me an email at admin@mindmoodmommy.com or connect with me via my social media buttons (FYI, I’m a generous person, I follow back!).

    Hi Laura

    Stumbled upon your site and love the fact that you’re a “recovering dieter!” Me too except I’ve now found the “near perfect” diet for my height/metabolism/personality.
    Sugar has been my greatest love and enemy….which I managed to ditch completely in January. Following that I gave up dairy products in April (cheese was another weakness) and am now a 90% raw vegan (still eating wheat and potatoes). What it has done for my weight, skin and energy levels is a near miracle. I don’t diet now but I eat right…..and I always cook from scratch.
    I have three grown up kids and still cook “normal” for them (pescatarian cuisine).
    Look forward to reading more of your adventures.
