Nic Marnell has lost 132 lbs all up, 95 lbs since joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge just over a year ago.
She has gone from struggling to walk to the mailbox to someone who now runs 6 miles for fun and fitness. She also credits her lifestyle change to saving her marriage.“The Healthy Mommy saved my life and my marriage,” says Mom Nic.
Nic says, “My husband and I have been through some tough times. Two years ago, I was heartbroken, my husband left. It took me a few months to find my feet and a bit of light. That’s when I found The Healthy Mommy on Facebook. It helped me when I didn’t think I could be helped. It helped me find me. And by doing this it also helped us find our love again.”
In fact, Nic believes that The Healthy Mommy has had a huge impact on the whole family. “We all eat the Healthy Mommy meals from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and they love the snacks I make them. They think they are getting a treat in their lunch box but I know it’s a healthier alternative to all that processed food I was giving them before.”
“My kids have an active mom that joins in with them and they join me. I love that they see me trying new things. I love that I’ve become that great role model and a mom they can be proud of. They see me having my breakfast every day and they can’t say I don’t want breakfast because you don’t!”
‘As a family, we stay active together’
Along with changes in food habits, Nic has learned to embrace and love exercise. “I get up most days at 5.30am to run. My Saturday revolves around Parkrun and the only thing on my social calendar is running events. The Healthy Mommy has given me the tools to be healthier, fitter and happy. It’s given me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone.”
Nic still can’t quite believe how much she’s transformed this year, not just in body but in mind. She’s happier, healthier, fitter and stronger.
“This has been an amazing year for me. And a lot of that is thanks to The Healthy Mommy and the amazing support, encouragement, motivation, and inspiration I get from all the ladies in the Healthy Mommy Community. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU.”
“You can see by the photos that it has made a huge difference in our lives. I’ve lost 132 lbs in total, and I’m really not sure exactly what hubby has lost but at least 55 lbs. That’s why this is a lifestyle that can be utilized by the whole family.”
Nic says, “Sometimes it’s those little things that really make you smile and jump for joy. My husband can now put his arms totally around me. Boy, what a feeling that is.
Never in our time together has he been able to do this with ease. On our wedding day, there was no way he could. And I wasn’t even quite at my heaviest.
If it wasn’t for finding The Healthy Mommy and the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge I don’t know if I would ever be able to feel his arms all the way around me, not just literally but ever again. It has saved my life and my marriage.”
Congratulations Nic, what an amazing result for you and your family!
