Brooke Baker decided it was time to make a change!

She says she had an unhealthy relationship with food and was constantly tired, always bloated and struggling to keep up with her two young kids.

That’s when she decided she needed to become a healthier version of herself and signed up for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Incredibly, Brooke, 29, has managed to lose 30.5kg in nine months and dropped from a size 22 to a size 10!

“I have so much more energy then I have ever had before. Instead of sitting back watching I can be involved in all activities with my children and not feel totally exhausted which is what has kept me motivated all along,” she says.

“I just want to be the healthiest and happiest version of myself for not only me but my family.”

What’s more, Brooke says her mental health has greatly improved since finding The Healthy Mummy.

“It has introduced me to exercise which I never thought would become such a big part of my daily routine and such a great way to clear my mind,” she says.

Advice for others trying to lose weight

  • Drink plenty of water!
  • Meal prep your snacks to stop you from grabbing at unhealthy choices
  • Move your body when you can however you can
  • Take progress photos and measurements and don’t always rely on the scales
  • Be consistent
  • Have a good support network around you
  • Remind yourself this is a lifestyle not a diet!

“I personally still enjoy takeaway with my family when I like to and just add it to my calories, I don’t dangerously restrict myself and still live a very happy balanced lifestyle,” adds Brooke.

“Remember, this won’t happen overnight, not everyday will be perfect but as long as you show up everyday and give it your best that day!

“Trust in the process and believe in yourself.”
