Despite battling depression and anxiety, this mum has lost 30kgs and has finally regained her confidence

Mum of three Peggy gained weight after her youngest daughter was born and due to some ill health, found herself at a weight she had never been at before. Along with suffering severe depression, PTSD and anxiety, she saw a photo of herself that she hated.

That photo prompted her to take control back and now two years on, not only has she lost 30 kilos, she has gained her confidence back, has more energy and is feeling so much happier.

Peggy’s motivation to join the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

“I got sick after my youngest daughter and due to my health, I gained all the weight I never had before. I had severe depression, PTSD and anxiety. When I finally got my health issues sorted I saw photos of myself I hated. That’s when I decided it was time to lose the weight”

Peggy’s incredible weight loss results

By using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies and following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, Peggy had shred 30 kilos and is feeling a million times better than she was two years ago.

I’ve lost 30kg with The Healthy Mummy. It took me 2 years because of underlying health issues.

I still suffer from depression and anxiety not as bad but I gained my confidence back.

I have a lot more energy to be able to run around with kids and be the happy mum they deserve”.

Peggy’s Healthy Mummy favourites

By meal prepping the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meals and using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies, Peggy has embraced the Healthy Mummy lifestyle.

“The Banana Smoothie is my favourite and my favourite snack from the Healthy Mummy App is the Mint Choc Bubble crunch.

Some of Peggy’s other favourite Healthy Mummy meals include the Mexican Lasagna, Stove Top Lasagna (pictured), and Pizza.

Workouts from the App

Peggy finds the Healthy Mummy App easy to follow and loves the variety of exercise videos. She says “I love all the exercises on the Challenge and that it’s so easy to access so you can do it anywhere with no excuses.

“Dance cardio and dance strong are my favourites as I also do Zumba.”

Peggy’s advice to others wanting to lose weight

“My advice on losing weight is don’t be so strict on yourself and have faith you will get there.

It might take you 12 months or more to get to your goal weight but you will eventually get there…baby steps.”

What has kept Peggy motivated

“I always gave myself one treat day. This was to stop myself indulging on the bad stuff during the week as a treat to myself to sticking to the lifestyle change.

I found if I stuck to it completely I caved every time.”
