My name is Peggy Porter and if you answered YES to any of these questions then I know exactly how you feel. Becoming a mother brings many changes to a woman’s life. It often brings much joy and happiness however it has it own set of challenges that can sometimes make us feel like we are no longer living our own life but living it for our children. We feel like we are on auto-pilot, that our life is being lived for us instead of feeling like we are living life.
We feel overwhelm, exhaustion, guilt and anxiety. Dreams…what dreams?
Self care…are you kidding? We couldn’t possibly begin to work towards our own personal dreams and take time for ourselves when we have children to care for, housework to do, activities to attend, homework to check and all the other things required in motherhood. Oh and of course, feeling the need to do it all perfectly.
Well, in my own personal experience as a mother, I realized that the only way to be a successful and happy mother was to be a happy and successful woman, first.
I recognized that if I put all my energy into the needs of my family, before attending to my own, I would end up unfulfilled, unhappy, unhealthy and exhausted.
I asked myself the important question "how do I want my children to remember me?" The response that came was "I want them to remember me as being happy and loving".
So that was what my goal became. I quickly learned that to be happy and loving meant that I had to be at my personal best and that meant taking care of myself. Self care became not a luxury, but a necessity. My experiences in my nursing career and coaching reminded me of the dramatic effect that lack of self care can have on a woman’s life, as an individual and as a mother.
How did I begin to make changes? What steps did I take to put myself first when I had 2 children that required my love and attention? How did I maintain my own identity, find time for my friends and husband, feel energized and in love with life, follow my personal dreams, start a coaching business, all while being a great mother at the same time?
And I have created a lifestyle makeover system so you can have it all at the same time, too. Great health, happiness, fulfilling relationships, Me time, ability to discover and reach your own personal goals…all while being a successful mother!

"As a mom and entrepreneur I have learned that self care is vitally important to my peace of mind as well as my business growth. In Feb of 2005 I was blessed to meet Peggy Porter and to receive a copy of her book Yumme Mumme Makeover. This book came at the right time for me. I was two tears into my business and I was working too hard and not taking care of myself. Peggy’s book gave me some valuable tools that I still use today. Now with the launch of Peggy’s website and the guide, her amazing tools for taking care of your self can be found online.
Thanks again Peggy for your continued support."

"This book is great! Must have for every Mum. And should become MUST HAVE for every future Mum!
Reading the book, I found myself in every chapter, which helped me to understand that I'm not alone. At the same time, in every chapter, in every example or joke I found an encouragement to start taking care of myself, to change my everyday life, to enjoy it more and more, and to be a better person, Mum and partner. To be honest, I enjoyed it so much (it's so fun at the same time) that I want to translate it in Croatian! Mums are the same around the world, so they need the same everyday tips!!!
After almost 2 years, "The Disease To Please" is still my favourite part"

“Peggy, I’m welling up with tears as I read your book. It hits me at the end of a particularly challenging week, I suppose. But you helped me see very quickly that I’ve got to let go. My need to be everything – great mom, successful business woman, enlightened thinker – is costing me my joy. I’m trying to fit way too much in, and it’s making me insane. Even sick. In the last three months I’ve been blessed with not one, but two cancer scares (both benign). The universe seems to be saying, “slow down and take care of yourself.” And your book reinforces this...”
