Exhausted mom of twins Becki, TRIPLED her ENERGY and lost 42 lbs
Becki says “I love my Healthy Mommy journey. It’s become part of my everyday life now. I’ve gone from exhausted and not wanting to get off the sofa to running 10k.”
She started The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges just after having twins and with a toddler in tow. The multiple pregnancies had taken a toll on her body.
“I had zero energy and exercise was the last thing on my mind. Even walking up the stairs was difficult. My body shape had changed after the twins and all I wanted to do was cover it up with the biggest clothes I could find.
The Healthy Mommy has changed all that. My energy has tripled and this mirrors my confidence.
I’m now confident enough to start enjoying fun activities with my family again rather than sitting on the sidelines.
My whole family have enjoyed being more active and have developed an appetite for wholesome foods”.
Trying to be the best mom I can, keeps me motivated. I figure to be healthy, it’s now or never.”
Becki says “My biggest None Scale Victory to date is I COMPLETED a 10K alone! Way to go Becki!
A photo inspired 41 year old Tracey to change her life. She’s now down 5 dress sizes!
Single mom-of-2 Tracey Bentley from the UK is the lightest, fittest and healthiest she’s been for over 12 years.
After being photographed during a fun night out where Tracey felt she was looking good, she was shocked at what she saw. “I felt awful” she said.
“I always thought because I was tall I could get away with being heavier but then the weight just kept piling on” says Tracey.
At 41 years old Tracey’s body and health was starting to deteriorate. With a BMI in the obese category and issues with her gall bladder. She says “I was getting older and my body was just falling apart. I just thought my body would always be this shape.
The Healthy Mommy has helped me so much that I can’t even put it into words”.
I wouldn’t be here now, lighter than pre-pregnancy weight over 12 years ago and feeling healthier than I ever, without the help of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the awesome support from the Healthy Mommy private Facebook support group.
“It’s still mind boggling how eating such great delicious food can help you lose weight but it does actually work”
It’s not just Tracey who has benefitted from following The Healthy Mommy lifestyle, her two kids love it too!
“They are both on-board for helping me become a healthier happier mom and love the new recipes we have found so far. It’s great that my kids are wanting to try new recipes. The Healthy Mommy has helped to make my son more aware of his own health. He’s only 11 and still carrying his baby fat but he has the physique of a rugby player. My daughter is using the recipe hub to help her with her home economics lessons!”
Mom-of-2 Alexandra is now rocking a size 8 and has learned to love her body again
Alexandra, aged 28, is a busy mom from the UK and has lost over 35 lbs since January following the Healthy Mommy 28 day Weight Loss Challenges!
She says “I have two little monkeys, I’m still breastfeeding my youngest who is eight months and my other one is nearly three years old. I was really not happy with the way I looked and I refused to buy size 14 clothes and nothing fitted me anymore. Now I’m a size 8!
Alexandra says joining The Healthy Mommy almost instantly changed her mindset towards food and her body “I’ve learned to love my body again’.
“I exercise regularly and even on my rest days I’m so full of energy I always squeeze in some squats and lunges!! It helped me to fall in love with running which I never thought would happen. It’s changed my mindset, my relationship with food and my mentality towards exercising. I don’t even feel like I’m making an effort anymore to “stay on track”
“I’ve loved every minute of my Healthy Mommy Journey.”
“I’ll honestly be forever grateful to The Healthy Mommy just for giving me the guidance and help I needed to succeed in healthy living. I feel great in my body already even though I still have another 10 lbs or so to lose”.
Mom-of-3 Laura has lost 56 lbs and is now training to be a firefighter!!
Laura 34 from the UK, is a busy working mom of 3 with kids aged 4, 2 and 1. She has lost 56 lbs following The Healthy Mommy and gone from maternity size 12/14 to an 6-8.
Laura says “I had 3 babies in under 3 and a half years. My body was so broken I didn’t even recognize it by the time baby number 3 was born. I struggled to feed myself, let alone the family, I had no energy and existed on cookies and other starchy carbs.
Without her realizing it, Laura’s weight had crept up to 181 lbs “I’ve been just under 125 lbs my entire adolescence and adult life until having babies and while I’d never change having my gorgeous children, I didn’t feel or look like ‘me’ anymore.”
Laura stumbled across The Healthy Mommy on Facebook and decided to give it a go by following a few recipes and postnatal videos. Now she follows all the meal plans and does 2 – 3 videos on the App a day.
“I’m now 130 lbs and training to be a firefighter! I’m the fittest I’ve ever been and I’ve taken up running. The wonderful Healthy Mommy Facebook support group encouraged me to do a Couch to 5k course.
“I’ve just done my first 5k and I’m now active, fit and healthy”
“I am very very thankful that The Healthy Mommy came into my life when it did.
It’s not punitive, I’ve never felt shamed – even at my biggest – in fact, I feel like an empowered strong woman.
And I feel that the Healthy Mommy Facebook support group helps me to give back and pay it forward to inspire more women.
The Healthy Mommy is about a lifestyle of strength, self-respect, self-love, and becoming healthy through empowering lifestyle choices. It’s an antidote to the toxic narrative around women’s bodies, especially post-baby bodies”.
After losing 35 lbs, mom-of-4 Nashara has totally changed her outlook on life!
Nashara, aged 32, is a proud mom of four kids, ages 12, 9 , 2 and 10 months old. Originally from sunny Jamaica, then Florida, and now residing in Essex in the UK, she has lost 35 lbs with The Healthy Mommy.
She says “Since starting The Healthy Mommy it has changed my outlook on life, to me it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change.
I started doing Healthy Mommy at first because I was at the lowest point in my life…my confidence was non-existent and my weight was skyrocketing.
I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror without a feeling of disgust and failure.
Since starting Healthy Mommy I am more confident and I’m learning to love the skin I am in.”
Nasarha has been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and finds it super easy to follow. “I am now eating healthier and I love to exercise because it makes me feel good and I’m ready to tackle any day.
I was a member of a gym but I no longer had any use for it because I was unable to find the time to attend with 2 young kids under 3 years. Instead, I can use the Healthy Mommy 28 Day Challenge App for as little a 5 minutes and even longer if I have extra time”.
“Real moms… real results I just love it. The support from the Moms from the Healthy Mommy group has been amazing.”
Hellevi’s wedding dress fits better after two kids than it did on her wedding day
Busy mom of two from Scotland joined the Healthy Mommy in May 2018 and so far she has lost 36 lbs.
She says “Before having kids my weight would fluctuate like the stock market. Now after two kids and thanks to The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges I’d say I’m probably the fittest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my whole adult life.”
Hellevi joined The Healthy Mommy in May 2018 a few weeks after she’d had her second baby.
“I was the heaviest I’d ever been and deeply unhappy about the way I looked. I wanted to lose weight but really had no idea where to start.
The beginning of my Healthy Mommy journey was slightly overwhelming, but thanks to the amazing Healthy Mommy Facebook support group and the fact that there were so many ordinary moms like me achieving amazing results, my faith in myself grew and negative thoughts turned positive”.
“I have found balance in my life and have become the person I always wanted to be.”
Hellevi thinks transforming her life with The Healthy Mommy has not only changed her physically but mentally and physically too.
“I feel stronger mentally and physically and good about myself and my life.
I went from hiding away to saying yes to all sorts of new experiences and opportunities.
Hellevi says “After having had 2 kids my dress fits even better than it did on my wedding day!”
We think you all look absolutely incredible! Congratulations to you all!
