Husband and wife team losing big numbers together

In June 2013, Jade married her loving husband. The couple had been together for three years and were already incredibly comfortable with one another. Marriage made them even more so.

Jade loves cooking and feeding her hubby. The pair also enjoyed eating, snaking and drinking with friends together.

However, come December 2016, Jade said she got the shock of her life.

“In December 2016, I stepped on the scales and they tipped a whopping 129kgs*.

“I knew I was obese and I had to change.”

The following month Jade joined her local Healthy Mummy Facebook group, signed up for her first 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and ordered 3 tubs of Healthy Mummy Smoothie Mix.

“I was determined to lose weight and be healthy for myself but also for my family,” reveals Jade.

Getting the hubby on board

Once my husband realized the Healthy Mummy recipes were delicious he jumped on board to support me but also because he wanted to be healthy and gain his fitness back,” says Jade.

Jade’s husband had also put on weight since getting married. At his biggest, he was tipping the scales at 115 kilograms.

Jade admits, “We started excising together (and separately too) we bought a treadmill so we had the convenience of working out at home as we had a young baby.”

“I started doing some of the Healthy Mummy Challenge exercises along with some light weight training.

“In 5 months I lost 22kgs* on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, having 1 smoothie for my lunch everyday and exercising 5 times a week.

“My husband lost 18kgs* too just from eating the Healthy Mummy meals and snacks I was cooking and exercising 3-4 times a week.”

Though the husband and wife duo haven’t hit their goal weight yet, they are feeling better than ever. “We have agreed this is a much better lifestyle and are proud of our achievements and that [we] are being better role models for our kids.”
