Mom halves her body weight (losing 154 lbs). Now loves her body – scars and all!

34-year-old mom Heidi Reynolds has a lot to celebrate.  Not only has she lost a MASSIVE 154lbs (half her body weight!) with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge she has also completely transformed her mental and physical health. And has learned to love every aspect of her body, scars and all.

Heidi is one of 7 INSPIRING moms who were invited to take part in The Healthy Mommy’s EPIC BODY CONFIDENCE photo shoot in Sydney.

The first of 3 photo shoots around the world (others in New York and London) celebrating women of all sizes and ages who are living their best and healthiest lives.

This beautiful mom’s SPECTACULAR weight loss is as inspiring as her journey to SELF CONFIDENCE.

“I was unhappy and hated myself”

Heidi knows what it feels like to hate the skin you are in.

She says “I’ve got a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa which makes all my sweat glands turn into big boils so I’ve had 36 operations to remove my sweat glands and have had lots of skin grafts”. As a result, Heidi has no sweat glands under her arms and in her groin and has lots of scaring all over her body.

At her lowest point, she came across The Healthy Mommy. She says “I was unhappy, I hated myself and in turn, I hated the world.

I started watching and reading all these amazing results from everyday moms just like me on the Healthy Mommy Facebook Group. It was good to see real moms, losing real weight.

I needed to do something to save myself and I found The Healthy Mommy just at the time I needed it”.

Joining The Healthy Mommy

Weighing over 294lbs, and inspired by the amazing results from everyday moms just like her, she decided to give the recipes from the website a go and started walking twice a day.

She says “in the first week I lost 13 lbs and was feeling amazing. After that, I joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and found a love for good healthy food I had never eaten before”.

Over the next 12 months, she lost a further 142lbs with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and completely changed her life.

Weight loss results – 154lbs (in 2.5 years)

Heidi has lost HALF HER BODY WEIGHT in two years and gone from 296lb down to 140lb. That’s a loss of 154lb!

“I went from a life I didn’t want to be in, to a life I LOVE being in”

It is a wonderful sight to see the beautiful, confident mom Heidi is today. She’s truly embracing her new life.

She says “I went from a life I didn’t want to be in, to a life I LOVE being in!”

Heidi has been maintaining her weight loss for the past 6 months and says she is now focussed on toning her body with the exercises on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App.

She says“I really can’t put into words how much The Healthy Mommy has helped me change the way I think about my body.

I am confident and happy and people can see it.

I’m loving everything about my body, even the scars. Thank you Healthy Mommy!”
