Weight Loss

Mums Goes From Being Short-Tempered To Happy And Confident After Dropping 2 Dress Sizes*

It’s amazing how a healthy eating and weight loss plan can transform everything. This mum went from being anti-social and short-tempered to a happy and positive mum with a home environment she always wanted.


Alisha Has Not Only Turned Her Life Around But Also Her Family’s.

Alisa is from Maitland in NSW and she’s married and has two children, Drake 3 and Marcus 1.

What Was The Heaviest You Weighed?

I don’t know the heaviest I got to, but when I decided to start losing weight I was 65.5kg*.

What Made You Decide Things Had To Change?

My son’s christening – I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes, and looking at the photos I felt ashamed of myself.

How Did You Lose The Weight?

I signed up to the 28 Day Challenge and bought the smoothies to begin with. I then added in some of the free recipes along the way.

How Long Did It Take To Lose The Weight?

It took me seven months to lose 10.2kg*. My focus is now on my body fat and muscle percentage, so my weight hasn’t changed due to muscle increase.

What Has Been Your Motivation?

My motivation is my children, but also my own self worth and confidence.

Any Advice For Those Looking To Join The Healthy Mummy?

  • My advice would be to look at this as a lifestyle change.
  • If you slip up, just jump back on the wagon and keep going.
  • You do not have to punish yourself or feel horrible.

Who Are You Doing This For?

I’m doing this for me. I want to look back and love my life. I want to feel confident and excited, and do everything I want to do without wondering if I look okay or if I’m too big for that.

Also for my children, they don’t deserve to spend their life inside because their mum is ashamed of how she looks or isn’t active enough to get outside and play with them!

What Has Changed In Your Life?

Everything has changed!

I’m a better mum, I no longer have a short-temper, I’m now social and my kids get to do things. We have a happy positive home environment.

I am a completely different person – I’m confident and happy. I’ve made new friends, joined a gym, and started to do things I never thought I would.

We’re incredibly proud of Alisha, and the life she’s created for herself and family. For more information on the 28 Day Challenge click here.
