If you are using the Healthy Mummy App you may have heard about the awesome 12 Week Challenge and want to know what it’s all about.
We run them every three months to give our mums extra motivation and accountability.
What is the 12 Week Challenge?
Put simply, the 12 week challenge consists of following three conventional 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges in the Healthy Mummy App.
For those taking part, they will pledge their 12 week goal, and along with receiving a free 12 Week Challenge Tool kit ebook, two lucky people will get the chance to win $1,000 each!
They’ll also have access to a 12 Week Challenge Private Support Group on Facebook, where there will be weekly prizes drawn and where they can chat with other mums taking part in the 12 Week Challenge and get regular support emails.
The results from previous 12 Week Challenges have been absolutely INCREDIBLE! Check them out here!
Why 12 Weeks?
No matter what your goal, be it weight loss, body confidence or simply better health, 12 weeks is a great time frame to measure real results.
While you can expect to lose between 4 -6 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, committing to three challenges back to back will ensure that small but consistent lifestyle changes, will soon become healthy habits that turn into long-term results.

Mums smash their 12 Week Challenge goals
If you need some more inspiration, check out some of the incredible results from the last 12 Week Challenge!
Cassandra Perrin lost 30 kilos and 80cm in 12 weeks!
Cassandra is 41 from NSW and is mum to six 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.”
Kirsty Whitehead lost 18.5 kilos and 72 cm in 12 weeks

“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.”
In total Kristy has now lost a massive 33.9kgs! See her results below!
