Cassie’s 10kg weight loss story

Cassie says she no longer has to fake confidence, she has it for real now! Here’s how this mum lost 10kgs through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge by learning to make time for herself!

Cassie McKay 7-11

There is one year between these photos and Cassie has been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies for 10 months. And in that time, 10kgs have GONE!

And to say this mama is excited is an understatement! Cassie bought the dress on the left on holiday in November last year but she only wore it out with layers of control underwear and a long top over it.

She says, “I knew my body wasn’t where I wanted it to be, but I was doing everything I could to embrace it.”

“This body had carried and nourished two babies and had endured a c-section and hip surgery. I was a busy mum giving everything to my family. I wanted to be body confident but it just wasn’t happening.” 

Since then, Cassie has learned to find time for herself. And while life still gets a bit hectic for her as a busy mum, she says she’s blossomed by finding that time.

“Time to nourish my body, time to exercise, time to get my hair and eyebrows done, time to see friends, time to meditate and time to reflect.” 

“I don’t have to fake confidence anymore- it is shining out from within me.”

So would Cassie recommend having some me-time? DEFINITELY!

“It doesn’t have to be hours a day. Start with a few minutes and take it from there. Trust me- you’ll be pleasantly surprised.”
