The Healthy Mummy program was developed to help support mums in losing weight, improving their health and regaining their confidence after having children.

But it is helping thousands of dads and other family members get in the best shape of their life too!

Dad Jeff decided to give the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge a go after seeing his fiancé Melissa lose 37kg and completely transform herself mentally and physically.

He has now lost 10kg in 10 weeks, bringing their combined weight loss to 47kgs. Wow!


The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is a budget-friendly, family friendly program and that has helped mums to lose over 3 million kilograms.

Jeff’s fiancé Melissa lost 37kg (down from 107 to 70kg) in 19 months and has been maintaining her weight loss for over a year by following recipes on the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and enjoying the delicious Healthy Mummy Smoothies.

But it was Melissa’s recent post about her fiancé’s weight loss transformation that got our attention.

A tidal wave of support and congratulations flooded in from our community of mums who love seeing couples supporting each other in their weight loss journeys. And so do we!

Watching Melissa’s incredible mental and physical transformation and wanting to look and feel healthier himself,  Jeff decided to commit fully to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Melissa says “I guess he saw the results that I was getting and noticed his weight slowly creeping up. He wanted to change so he could keep up with me.

“He knew how fit I was getting and how I loved exercising and realised it was something fun that we could do together. And something that would make him feel great as well”.

“He had never stepped into a gym before”

Melissa and Jeff have been together for 5 years and she has been following The Healthy Mummy lifestyle for the past 2.5 years (doing a combination of smoothies and recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge).

Although Jeff had been enjoying meals that Melissa has been making from the Challenge for the past 2.5 years he would also give in to takeaways, ice-cream and chocolate.

Referring to her husband she says, “This dude right here had never stepped into a gym or eaten healthy before he met me”.

10 weeks ago he decided to give The Healthy Mummy Challenge a real go

Melissa says “10 weeks ago he made a commitment to himself to give this (The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge) a real go. 

“Following the meal plans and committing to exercising 3 days a week – doing 1 x HIIT session, 1 x weights sessions and 1 x cross training session”.

Determined to support her partner as best she could, Melissa prepped all his meals and snacks from the Health Mummy recipe hub, including lunches for him to take to work.

Healthy and creamy carbonara pasta

Some of Jeff’s favorite meals and snacks include the weetbix balls, banana choc chip muffins, chocolate mint bubble crunch,  hidden veg spaghetti and creamy bacon carbonara.

Melissa says “He had 1 cheat meal a week and it could be whatever he wanted”.


“During the past 10 weeks, he didn’t slip up once! Almost everything he ate was a Healthy Mummy meal and he had a Healthy Mummy Smoothies for breakfast each day too”.

“His favourite being the Snickers Smoothie. He has it with half light milk and half water”.

“He is loving this so much he wants to continue”

“Today was meant to be his final day, but he is loving it that much he wants to continue and see where this journey takes him”.

So dedicated to his new healthy lifestyle Melissa says “I even offered him some choc chip ice cream and he said No!

This guy would refuse to believe in eating healthy or exercising and now I can’t even give him a spoon of ice cream!.

“His will power is much stronger and he doesn’t feel like he needs or wants the foods that he used to eat. He is happy to eat healthy and his loving the way it makes him feel.

Having a sweet tooth just as Melissa does, she says “It helps that there are plenty of healthy sweet snacks available on the challenge because he feels like he is not deprived of anything”.

Weight loss results- 10kg in 10 weeks


Starting weight 96kg.  Now 86 kg. That’s a 10kg weight loss.
He has also lost 28.1 cm from his body.

Not only has he lost 10kg many of our Healthy Mummy mums agree that he looks 10 years younger too.

Exercising together has bought them closer

Melissa says “It’s so good to finally feel like we have something in common!


“It’s great when we train together because he loves it and it makes us closer. 

“When he first started he could barely do a sit-up, now he can now smash out a few hundred sit ups.

“He always thought he was fit but hadn’t realised that after 20 years of doing very little exercise, his fitness level was no longer what he thought.

“In just 10 weeks, however, he is now at a similar fitness level to me and I have been working on myself for over 2 years!”. 


“He is loving his new body”

“It honestly doesn’t take that much to improve your health, lifestyle and make those changes for the better. He shines confidence and is loving his new body.

“I can’t wait to see what another 10 weeks will do stay tuned. In total we have together lost 47 kg That’s almost a whole person!” says Melissa.

And what’s more, Jeff is now HOOKED on this new healthy lifestyle.

Wow! What a wonderful story and serious couple goals right there! Two hotties in the house!

Losing weight and improving your health is always easier when you have a partner, friend or colleague to support you.  And when it is someone that lives under the same roof, even better.

The Healthy Mummy team love that Melissa has been a source of inspiration for her fiancé to want to get healthier. Congratulations to this beautiful couple, living their best and healthiest lives.
