How Belinda lost the weight on the 12 Week Challenge
The Adelaide mum-of-one reveals she decided to join the 12 Week Challenge as a way to kickstart her weight loss journey.
“My Pledge for the 12 week Challenge was to commit to the challenge and see it through. This was my pledge because in the pass I have had a history of starting and not seeing things through,” she says.
“This was really important to me.”
What Belinda has lost over her body:
Total: 84 cms
Bust lost: 19cm
Waist lost: 19 cm
Hips lost: 27 cm
Thigh lost: 12 cm

Best of all, Belinda says over the last 12 weeks she’s seen a heap of improvements with her overall health.
“I have improved energy levels, my skin is glowing, my lower back pain is gone, I’m able to go to shops and buy clothes,” she says.
“I am mentally more resilience and emotionally more happy. I feel like now for my daughter I am a role model for her.”
Most importantly, Belinda says she’s had FUN losing the weight and it hasn’t been a chore.
“I have had fun these last 12 weeks and would you do it again a thousand percent. I have learned things about myself and found out that when I set my mind to a goal and will achieve it,” she says.
