“I have lost 22kgs so far in nine months and dropped from a size 22 down to a size 16. I have more energy, better skin, digestive health has also improved,” she says.

“I’m seeing mostly my stomach area get firmer and my shape improve. I’m seeing my mood elevate, seeing my energy levels change. I’m feeling a new appreciation for my body, my emotions and what I can do everyday to fuel me (physically and mentally).”

What a typical day looks like for Elizabeth

Breakfast: Mostly smoothies, eggs on Sundays
Morning snack: Macadamia milk coffee and Tummy Snack Bar
Lunch: Varies depending on where I am – corn thins with ricotta and tomato, tomato soup, left overs
Afternoon tea: this is my weak point in the day – I like something sweet – current favourite is a brownie bite or chocolate banana bread (from app)
Dinner: We cook fresh every night – mostly meals from the Healthy Mummy App, occasionally meals I’ve made but changed slightly to be more nutritious.

“My favourite snack in the Snickers mousse…amazing! My favourite meal is hard, I love the sweet potato gnocchi, peanut butter chicken curry, devilled sausages, slow cooker pork ramen…the list could go on!”

“My favourite app sessions are the no equipment workouts with Jo and the take 10 step sessions with Jade.”

Elizabeth’s 3 tips for success

  1.  Start slow, change one or 2 things at a time, this will help it stick.
  2.  Find support, keep in contact. Without people in my corner, I would have given up.
  3.  It’s not about being perfect all the time, it’s about making changes that fit you, and help you reach your goals.

“Find your reason for going on this journey. I needed to have a reason and a goal to motivate me to keep going. Keep this goal visible and always remember what drives you,” she adds.

“Also, take pictures – before during and after – this is such a motivator to keep pushing and stay on track!”

How Matthew lost 13kg

Matthew Roberts, Elizabeth’s husband was able to lose 13kg alongside his wife with the help of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

“The defining moment was November 2020, when my wife saw a photo of the two of us. We both looked rather over weight, and needed to change our dietary habits,” he says.

“I got started because my wife started with The Healthy Mummy. I wanted to make it easier for my wife, by eating the same meals and cutting down on deserts.

“I was heaviest at 108kg, I am now maintaining 93kg. I started end of January 2021, and reached my goal weight 95kg in early April.”

Best of all, Matthew reveals he’s noticed heaps of health benefits.

“I am feeling much happier and enjoy running around with the two boys. I have noticed my fitness level has increased compared to the years previously,” he says.

The benefits of losing weight with a partner

– Having support with you, another person who can keep you accountable for any weight gain.

– cheer you on when you get to a goal.

– Setting smaller goals more frequently.

– Using an app to track weight, exercise and calorie intake.

“My current goal is to maintain my weight till the end of the year less then 95kg, while increasing my weekly exercise,” says Matthew.

“Currently, I am doing a few walks and one work out. Prior to kids I played rugby and trained 3-4 times a week.

How the Healthy Man Meal Replacement has helped

“I use The Healthy Man Meal Replacement smoothie powder two days a week. For breakfast I have 1 cup of full cream milk, with frozen fruit and the powder blended. I am able to make it through to lunch without feeling hungry and needing food.

“I used the meal replacement shake more often while I was trying to lose the weight, the shake flavours are surprisingly tasty, I have had many different types of protein powder for weight training and all had a really bad after taste.”
