Samara Syed lost 38 lbs and overcame postnatal depression and anxiety
Racked with anxiety and suffering postnatal depression after the birth of her second daughter 30-year-old Samara Syed signed up to the Healthy Mommy in a desperate attempt to find herself again. She did that and so much more.
She says “The day I joined The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges was the day I made the conscious decision to put myself higher on the priority list. It was the day my life changed and the day I realized I was worth it!”
Samara lost 38 lbs (down from 170 lbs to 132 lbs) in 8 months with Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and has successfully been toning and maintaining her body ever since.
She says “The Healthy Mommy has not only helped me lose 38 lbs but has helped me gain so much! I am now the happiest, healthiest, most confident version of myself. I have beaten depression and am living my best life.”
Being a single mom-of-two Samara admits life has not always been easy but she loves that she has become a positive role model for her daughters and can show them how to have a healthy relationship with food and exercise. Not only do her daughters join in with her meal prepping they see exercise as a way to have fun.
My goal is to show the ‘every day’ mom that it is possible to reach your health and weight loss goals with The Healthy Mommy. It’s not a fad and it is maintainable.”

Melanie has lost 130 lbs and gained the strength and confidence to battle huge personal and health obstacles
28-year-old mom Melanie Arnold-Stemm’s weight loss journey has been anything short of plain sailing. This COURAGEOUS mom has taken more blows than most. However, since losing weight and almost half her body size and becoming mentally and physically stronger she is tackling each obstacle like a true warrior.
Melanie started her Healthy Mommy weight loss journey shortly after her difficult marriage ended. At the time she weighed 298 lbs and was suffering several health issues including scoliosis, respiratory issues and illness that made her lose consciousness due to her heart rate either spiking or falling at super fast speeds.
Since losing 130 lbs (down from 298 lbs to 168 lbs) and improving her health she says “Losing consciousness used to happen to me up to 10 times a day. Now I’m lucky enough to have it happen once or twice every couple of months! This is HUGE for me!”
In addition, she has been caring for her mom who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Living on a super tight budget, Melanie would do a 3 hour round trip 4-5 days a week to visit her mom, taking meals that she prepped from The Healthy Mommy Challenge App.
Melanie says “Mom was initially given 3-6 months life expectancy and with the help of her eating nutrient-rich healthy foods, along with her treatment, she is still here. And has been downgraded from terminal to incurable. Essentially meaning that the life expectancy is now years instead of fast-moving, which is a massive turnaround!”
More recently Melanie received yet another setback “I was told I have cancer cells. Thankfully they are non-life-threatening however I also discovered my ovaries have over 43 very large cysts. So along with the cancer cells, I have been told that a full hysterectomy and cancer treatment will be likely.”
Although this might mean no more children for Melanie, she remains strong and focuses on the positives since beginning her weight loss journey. She says “I am super thankful for my daughter and also for my wonderful partner.”
Not only has Melanie inspired many other moms with their own weight loss journeys she says “I have made beautiful life-long friendships, which is the biggest win for me. I was always feeling like the odd one out, the black sheep of the family, and my confidence to be myself around others was shot. I’ve now got ‘ME’ back!”

Phila says, “The Healthy Mommy Challenge App is like having a dietitian and personal trainer in my pocket 24/7”

The Healthy Mommy has helped by making me feel better about myself and given me my body confidence back.”

Christine has lost 38 lbs and overcome back and joint pain and fatigue
After losing 38 lbs (down from 164 lbs to 126 lbs) by following The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plans and exercises, 48-year-old mom Christine Mazany is fitter and healthier than she has ever been. And has energy levels she never thought possible at her age.
She is now training for the Las Vegas marathon, along with her daughter from New Zealand.
When Christine started her Healthy Mommy journey back in June 2017 she weighed 164 lbs was constantly tired and suffered back and joint pain.
Now at 48 and feeling fabulous she says “The Healthy Mommy has changed my whole family’s life.
Not only have I lost 38 lbs, but my husband has also lost 17 lbs and my daughter has lost 30 lbs by making healthy meal choices too. And that’s a win in my book!
I have gained self-confidence and energy levels I never thought was possible in my late 40’s.
The Healthy Mommy has helped me see that losing weight isn’t a diet. It’s not just food, it’s a lifestyle change. It is about enjoying the foods in the right portions and made healthier.
It’s also about moving and making the most of what you have to exercise. Anyone can do this, you don’t need any expensive equipment. It’s all in the Healthy Mommy Challenge App.
I am now the fittest I have ever been. I’m the weight I was when I was 21 but a much fitter and healthier person to go with it. And no more back and joint pain.”

Robyn has lost 17 lbs in less than 6 months and says “the Challenge App has changed my life”
35-year-old mom-of-2 Robyn has lost 17 lbs (from 200 lbs down to 183 lbs) in less than 6 months and is well on track to achieve her goal weight loss of 40 lbs by the end of the year.
Robyn joined The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges after struggling to lose weight following the birth of her 2nd child.
A difficult pregnancy and doctor ordered bedrest led Robyn to gain over 50 lbs with her second pregnancy.
Feeling uncomfortable Robyn says “having to buy clothes in double digit sizes after my daughter was born was horrible. I literally fell into a depression and I didn’t understand that despite breastfeeding, my weight wasn’t falling off as it had after having my first child.”
Although Robyn was determined to lose weight her main motivation was to set a good example to her daughters. She wanted to show them that she could be a working mom and still make time for her own health and wellness.
This busy mom says “the Challenge App has CHANGED my life. I love the ease of picking/planning all of our meals by serving size. Then I am able to print a grocery list and get to the store.
I stay under budget as I only buy what’s on the list so it’s been worth every penny to me.
I am forever grateful for the ease and organization this provides for me and my family.”
Not only is Robyn feeling more energized to keep up with her kids she says “I am feeling better, lighter and even see my skin looking healthier.”
