Mums are kicking health and weight loss goals with our 12 Week Challenge
WINNER – Renee – 14 kg lost in 12 weeks
After living through the Melbourne lockdown, Renee was looking to get new clothes but didn’t have a great experience when shopping. So she joined our 12 Week Challenge and found her confidence all over again!
“I pledged to lose 5kg in 12 weeks, and then after I wrote it, I thought I could do better than that, so I deleted it and wrote 10kg. I honestly thought there was no way and would have been happy with 6kg.”
“Before The Healthy Mummy, I was convinced there was no time for me, so there was no time to make lunch, we were now having takeaway at least 2 times a week as I was just too tired and lazy to cook.”
“I am now happier than I have been in a really long time. I’m making time for myself, to walk, catch up with friends, even go shopping. I’m now sleeping through the night, even eating lunch, and I didn’t need to buy new jeans yet. I fit into my old size 14 jeans now.”

“My pledge and challenge will help me kick my postpartum journey’s butt!”
“I smashed my pledge goal of getting to 75kg and got to 70kg! Not only was I able to do a full 5km Parkrun nonstop, but I smashed my personal best and, for the first time, completed it in under 30 minutes! And I ran 10km NONSTOP for the first time!”
“The 12 Week Challenge has been so motivating. It’s helped me stay on track and to smash my goals. I’ll definitely be doing the next challenge!”

“I started at 114.3kg, and I refused to weigh myself throughout because I didn’t want to let my mind get caught up in the numbers. At the end of the first eight weeks, I dropped down to 106.8kg – I lost a total of 7.5kg.”
“Even though I still have down days 90% of the time, my mind is clear and free and happy; physically, I’m able to balance,” she says.
