“For me, [this] bathing suit photo shoot is a chance for me to overcome my own insecurities and feel good about me. Here I am and I feel great!” Soleil recently said of her weight loss, which she achieved with Nutrisystem.

“After each pregnancy, I lost weight in a healthy way. I need to lead by example. I’m not going to starve myself in front of my kids. We love cooking as a family,” she continued. “We have so much fun going to the farmer’s market to gather fresh fruit and veggies. Teaching my kids about food is a great way for me to stay on track as well.”

“We put everything into loving and supporting our kids, but we still have ourselves to take care of as well. I hope that I can inspire other mothers to make a little time for themselves and take the steps toward living a happier, healthier life,” Soleil added.
