Amanda Grace is a 42-year-old mum of 7 kids aged between 26 and 3 years old from Adelaide so understands the need to plan especially when it comes to food. She has not only successfully lost 40 kg with the help of The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge but she’s been able to maintain this for at least 4 months.
See how she has managed to lose the weight and keep it off with a day on Amanda’s plate including her favourite Healthy Mummy products and recipes.
After losing 40kg in 7 months this mum has maintained the weight for 4 months
Like all of us, Amanda has had successes and some small setbacks but after getting back on track she has continued to thrive!
“I lost 40kg but gained back 5kg and have lost 1 kg since getting real with myself again.”
“My goals when I started out were to lose the weight in 5-kilo losses. That way it wasn’t so overwhelming. My big goal was to reach 65 kg. I’m now sitting at 60kg so I surpassed that which is amazing in itself.”
Losing that first 40kg was the biggest hurdle but she’s loved how The Healthy Mummy community has supported her through it all.
“Losing 40kg took 7 months and have been maintaining 60kg for at least 4 months I’ve been part of The Healthy Mummy community for now 13 months.”
Amanda reveals that the pic on the left was taken 2 years ago at her daughter’s year 7 graduation.
“I was at my biggest I’d ever been and so uncomfortable in my skin. I tried so hard to find something to wear for my daughter’s year 7 graduation and this was the only thing I found that even came close to respectable neat attire for such an occasion. Fast forward to now I fit into her dress!
“I smashed goals I’d set for myself out of the park. Why? Because I chose to put myself first and turn my health completely around. I now am so completely comfortable in my skin and learning to love aspects of myself that I thought were long gone.”
