1. Cassandra Perrin – lost 30 kilos and 80cm on the 12 Week Challenge

Cassandra Perrin 12 week Challenge

Cassandra is 41 from Bredbo in NSW and is mum to 6 beautiful children aged 19 to 6 years old. She admits that pouring her heart and soul into her amazing family for the last 22 years meant that she lost herself a bit along the way.

In fact, Cassandra says that following a couple of stressful pregnancies, special needs children and dealing with the challenges of them as teenagers, led to her weight gain.

“I got depressed and it was a vicious cycle. I was stoked when the 12 challenge was announced as this was what I needed,” she says.

“I had 12 weeks of support and accountability with a group of women who were all there doing the same thing, I could do it in the safety of my home and still be connected to a support system of an amazing community and be held accountable each week with my weigh-in, measurements and progress photos.

“I didn’t have to go to a gym. As a morbidly obese lady with social anxiety and depression, this was amazing. I was excited to be a part of a community and still be hidden.”

2. Kirsty Whitehead – lost 18.5 kilos and 72 cm on the 12 Week Challenge

Kirsty Whitehead has lost a whopping 18.5 kilo and 72cm on the 12 Week Challenge. The 39-year-old SA-based mum has been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since 2015 and had lost 38.9kg in total.

“Just before the 12 Week Challenge was announced I made a decision to focus on ME and my wants. The timing was perfect and I wanted to give it my all,” she says.

“My pledge was to be committed to myself. To not give up, to focus on my whole self, my physical, emotionally and also my inner health. To lose 10 kilos.”

3. Christine Hamman – lost 13 kilos on the 12 Week Challenge

The South Australian-based mum-of-three decided to sign up to the Challenge because she needed to give herself a kick start.

“I had become complacent on my health journey and the scales were slowly starting to rise again,” she admits.

“My pledge was to lose 5kgs and to stay consistent the whole way through and I surpassed my pledge and lost 13kg and 32cm.”

“I decided to join as I saw a photo of me full length on our holiday in April 2021 and it was so terrible that I said I couldn’t look like this anymore and my son needs a healthy fit mum to keep up with and not to be an embarrassment to my son,” she says.

Jasmine signed up to the 12 Week Challenge because she wanted to lose between 10-12kg and fit in her dress!

“Amazingly, the dress was able to do up at six weeks and I changed my pledged for the other six weeks to get my back rolls gone,” she says.

“Now, I am stronger and fitter every week and keep heading towards my goal. I used the app for everything during the 12 Week Challenge and continued on using it.”

What’s more, having tried and failed at lots of different diets before, the Healthy Mummy gave her all the tools she needed to succeed.
