The Healthy Mummy SKIN: “It’s working! My skin is slowly but surely shrinking back!”
Dani Stormont is a 40-year-old mum to three kids aged 12, 10 and 8 from NSW. She joined the Healthy Mummy in September 2017 after finding it on Facebook. Dani has lost a total of 26 kilos and 100’s of centimetres, she says, “Honestly I have never felt better in my whole adult life.”
Dani shares, “I suffered from depression and anxiety since my late teens. The depression is gone. My anxiety is still there but not nearly as bad, and I believe I owe that to a Healthy Mummy lifestyle change. A healthy diet and regular exercise does more than any pill ever could.”
Dani’s weight loss story
Dani had recently split up with her partner of 11 years and was miserable and desperately needing a change.
Dani says, “I had never really had any major issues with my weight until my first pregnancy. I am not sure exactly how much weight I had put on, but I do remember my doctor being concerned about my weight gain, I was totally unphased.
“It’s just baby weight” I would tell myself all the time, “I am going to breastfeed. I will lose it so easily!” Oh man, was I wrong? The weight did NOT “fall off” even though I was breastfeeding, in fact the opposite happened, I gained more weight.”
One night, searching Facebook for a solution to her weight problems Dani stumbled on the Healthy Mummy support page.
“I saw some amazing results and thought why not? Sceptical I signed up for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. I had NO idea how much it would change my life.”
Dani loves The Healthy Mummy Lifestyle
Dani submersed herself headfirst into her new Healthy Mummy lifestyle. The Healthy Mummy Smoothies became a daily thing, and so did frequent exercise.
Dani shares, “I read everything I could on weight loss, weight gain, and the psychology behind it all. I read all the tips, hints and success stories I could.”
“The weight started falling off! IT WAS HAPPENING! My family and friends were amazed. I was amazed.”
The Healthy Mummy SKIN range
Dani noticed one problem she wasn’t sure how to fix until she found the Healthy Mummy skin range.
“By January 2018 I had lost 24 kilos. I was so close to my goal weight. Then I noticed something, skin. Loose skin.
“Noooooo! I wasn’t counting on that. I pulled the breaks on the weight loss, fearing that I may end up looking like a Shar Pei.”
I then started googling loose skin. Omg, will I need surgery?!
For the next year, I worked on maintaining my weight (really wasn’t hard now that my lifestyle had changed and The Healthy Mummy way of life was my own now.) I kept my water intake up religiously and moisturised like there was no tomorrow. I was taking chemist bought Collagen Tablets and just basically praying to the skin gods to shrink it back.
Then something amazing happened!
In 2019 The Healthy Mummy Skin range came out and it was like a dream come true for Dani.
“As soon as I was able to get my hands on the product I started using them. The Healthy Mummy Skin Collagen Powder was added to everything I could – yoghurt, cold water and I also added it to my Healthy Mummy Smoothies.
“It’s working! My skin is slowly but surely shrinking back! It just takes time and some TLC.
“I need to remind myself that my skin did not stretch like that overnight, it took months, even years. Why should I expect my skin to snap straight back overnight? It’s just not possible! But the human body is an amazing thing, just look at pregnancy and childbirth, to begin with. So don’t doubt what your body is capable of!”
Dani’s tips for success
- Keep a diary. Record your feelings, any triggers, food, water, exercise. EVERYTHING! It’s a good way to start recognising unhealthy patterns and dealing with them, also a good motivational tool.
- Set Goals and get them done!
- Be kind to yourself. But also tough! Always ask yourself, “Am I hungry, thirsty or bored?”
“Feel like giving up? DON’T! Remind yourself WHY you started. Remind yourself how far you have come!!”
