Linda’s story

Hust before giving birth with my 3rd baby, I was weighing 122kg (BMI 39.8)! I felt like all this weight was literally suffocating me and making me sad. I avoided photos because I did not like the way I looked.

At my 6 week post birth check-up, I discussed my weight with my Dr, I was 109kgs (BMI 35.6), 3kgs heavier than when I got pregnant with number 3.

After reading about the Healthy Mummy plans and seeing that I could still breastfeed my then 3 month old while using the healthy mummy smoothies, I decided I needed to try it and everything about it lived up! The products, healthy mummy smoothies and 28 day diet & exercise plan has transformed me and I could not be happier or prouder. And my milk supply has increased dramatically.

Sometimes it was hard and I particularly remember the first 10 days being the hardest, I stopped putting sugar in my tea. I used honey. I was sitting there feeling like if I just ate some junk food I would feel better, but I had to break these habits.  This was a tough time for me because there was still so much of this food available in the house. But I stayed strong.

I have now reached 69 kilos and feel like I have reached the light at the other end of the tunnel. I achieved my goal with the motivation, healthy mummy smoothies and meals plans that are available on the website. It was nice to feel like I was not alone – The healthy mummy team has always made me feel like I have someone on the weight loss journey with me.

Of course I have had bad days – I have not lived 100% on food free from sugar, salt and fat. But a few meals and a long walk or two and I quickly return to feeling like the new transformed person that I have fallen in love with.

I love that I can run around with my kids. I love that all my back pain and knee pain is gone. I love that I can pick up clothes that I like and just wear them. And with all the imperfections, I love my body.

Linda Lost Over 40kg In 12 Months

 

My body has carried my babies, brought them into the world, fed them, and held them in my arms through many sleepless nights. My body did not fail me – I failed my body. I knew with family history of diabetes and heart problems I needed to do better with my body for myself, my children and my husband.

And now I am so much happier. And last year I also went on the Morning Show to talk about my weight loss (when I had lost 36kg) – you can see the video below

Thank you so much!
