Charmaine has lost 53kg and has improved her blood pressure and cholesterol

Charmaine Lee has lost an impressive 53kg through The Healthy Mummy! What an achievement!

The 33-year-old Victoria resident reveals the turning point for her was after seeing a photograph of herself at a friend’s wedding.

“I needed too change and put my health first. I had terrible blood pressure issues, high cholesterol and liver issues amongst very bad anxiety and depression,” she admits.

“I had no motivation I just wanted too sleep my life away I lived on very unhealthy amounts of take away foods, I barely ate any fruit or vegetables.”

Mum-of-four Charmaine reveals she also ate huge amounts of soft drink and never drank any water at all.

“I now eat heaps of fruit and vegetables and I also cook my own healthy meals from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and drink The Healthy Mummy smoothies,” she says.

“I also workout, something that I didn’t before. It’s taken me four years and there have been ups and downs.

“I now exercise daily drink heaps of water and my anxiety and mental health are the best they’ve ever been my cholesterol has dropped and my type 2 diabetes is getting better.”
