Healthy Mommy mom Nicole Deakes Brown recently compared her 52lbs weight loss to bags of sugar and she couldn’t believe her eyes! And nor could we!
For some moms, it’s easy to forget just how much weight, inches, and body fat we have lost while following The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.
It isn’t until we compare our ‘weight lost’ with ACTUAL PHYSICAL OBJECTS that our minds are blown!
By following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and doing regular exercise Nicole has completely transformed her body and life.
Comparing weight loss to physical objects
She says “There is no better feeling than looking back and seeing how far you have come on your journey.
I have shed 12 x 4lb bags of SUGAR!.
Looking at those bags of sugar makes me shudder. How did I carry that around all day, everyday? To be honest I have no idea. I never thought I had a weight problem.”
In addition to her weight lost Nicole says “I am a different person
- I’m healthier
- I’m fitter
- I’m stronger
- I’m more confident”
Losing weight without giving up chocolate
Nicole admits to having a sweet tooth but says that by following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges she has simply learnt to make healthier versions of the sweet treats that she enjoys.
In fact, she has become quite a master of meal prepping delicious guilt-free chocolatey snacks from the Challenge App.
She says “I’m teaching my girls about moderation, balance and to make healthier choices. All foods are good.”
Meal prepping helps keep Nicole on track
Nicole likes to meal prep on weekends. She says “I love The Healthy Mommy as I get to make the delicious healthy snacks.
I like to meal prep on a Saturday between housework, washing, ironing and running girls to dancing so I have Sunday’s free for family time.
Occasionally I will cook during the week and I make double of meals so we have leftovers and I get a couple of nights off cooking.”
Here are some of the delicious chocolatey snacks that Nicole has whipped up recently.
In a recent meal prep session Nicole made:
- Bounty Choc Chip Cupcakes.
- Rocky Road.
- Weetabix Slice (For some reason I had more than usual so I made it into 4 weetbix balls).
- Peanut Butter Granola (I added macadamias).
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Crumble Balls.
Despite dealing with some health issues recently which have made losing weight a little difficult Nicole says “One thing is that I have not given up even though there have been days that I wanted too.
I still move my body and nourish it with healthy food and plenty of water.
There will be bumps along the way but as long as we keep moving forward we will reach our destination.
LIFESTYLE not diet!”
