Losing weight on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is like freeing yourself of extra baggage and for many moms, this can be an emotional experience (in the best possible way).
Single mom-of-three, Kerry Sky Douglas, has not only lost a MASSIVE 88 lbs, but her health has also improved so much that she no longer needs any medication.
She shares her weight loss journey below and the emotions that come with reaching such a HUGE milestone.
Life and health before discovering The Healthy Mommy
Kerry says “I am a single mom to three amazing kids. A 13-year-old daughter with Aspergers, 11-year-old mini-me and my 5-year-old cyclone son”.
When Kerry first discovered The Healthy Mommy she weighed 242 lbs and her health was in a tailspin.
She says “I wanted to lose weight but I had health problems through the roof”.
In addition to being diagnosed as coeliac and dairy intolerant, she also had peptic ulcers and says her thyroid, gall bladder, and endometriosis were taking their toll on her body and mental state.
Kerry says “I don’t like to admit, but I was severely depressed. I was a mess”.
Getting started with The Healthy Mommy
Seeing a photo of herself on Christmas Day (and noticing how big she had become) was the motivation Kerry needed to make a big change.
She says “I stayed at my sister’s for New Years. I woke up at sunrise and started walking. I walked for almost 2 miles and was so proud, but it also wore me out”.
Determined to be a better mother and role model, Kerry signed up to The Healthy Mommy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge on 1 January 2018.
She says “I had been sitting on the fence for about 6 months watching all the amazing transformations and wishing it was me.”
After taking the leap Kerry says “I haven’t looked back”.
When Kerry first began following The Healthy Mommy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge 16 months ago she set herself a weight loss goal of 100 lbs in 18 months.
Now at 16 months in, she is well on her way to smashing this goal.

“I have tears I actually did it”
On reaching this HUGE milestone Kerry says “I have tears I actually did it!
It’s been an amazingly rewarding journey over the last 16 months and I am so proud. I hardly recognize myself.
It is absolutely mind-blowing what taking care of yourself and making YOURSELF a PRIORITY can do”.
And what’s even better is that Kerry’s health has improved dramatically too.
How Kerry lost the weight
She says “No meds AT ALL NOW. Working out (usually walking 2 miles before 9.00am most days) and clean eating (choosing from thousands of recipes from The Healthy Mommy recipe hub) is my medicine and honestly it’s all I needed.
Feeling extremely proud and want to share my secret.
It’s being a Healthy Mommy – pure and simple.
I can’t recommend this lifestyle enough.
And you know what? My kids are happy because Mom is happy”.
Look at how much weight Kerry lost in bags of sugar!
Kerry says “I had so many laughs trying to do this! I could not hold them all.
I can’t BELIEVE I used to carry this around.
It’s not a fad or something I want to ever change.
I absolutely love being a Healthy Mommy mom. The delicious meals and all the workouts are something that I won’t ever give up.
Don’t sit on the fence like I did. My only regret is that I didn’t start earlier”.
Well done Kerry! You look FANTASTIC and we know you are going to smash your 100 lbs weight loss goal in no time.
