These ladies have been each on their own individual weight loss journey but when they needed support, advice, motivation or just a little push to keep going they found each other.

After a long time of just chatting online or over the phone these mums decided to fly in from all over Australia to meet up in person and finally get to give each other a big hug!

How the friendship developed and Amy helped plan the meet up

“We have formed a sister like friendship since meeting on the Healthy Mummy Support Group and being Motivating Mums back in October 2017.

Zoe originally contacted me to see if I would help surprise Tegan (another Healthy Mummy mum). I then organised a Tassie catch up and planned a dinner.

Once the event was made, I said to the other girls that it would be amazing if they came too, so we could all be officially in the same room”.

The rest, they say is history!

How Zoe triggered the meet up

“We met up in Tassie after I planned a surprise visit for Tegan and was informed that these lovely ladies were going to be there too. I got to meet 5 people I’ve never met before, all at the same time. It was great, and now we have formed an amazing friendship“.

These 5 mum’s share 8 tips for success on the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge:

  • Set yourself small goals. Rather than focusing on losing eg. 30kg look at it as 5kg at a time
  • Meal prep when you have the time as you will have days where you won’t feel like cooking so having that healthier option there makes it easier to grab.
  • Take photos and measurements in addition to weighing yourself. Those scales can be pesky things and play mean.
  • Eat your recommended daily calories.
  • Drink up!! Stay hydrated.
  • Reward yourself with each milestone you make.
  • Make Exercise fun and include the family.
  • K.I.S.S method – Keep it simple sweetheart
