My name is Jacinta. I am a 28 year old Mum to three beautiful children and have a wonderfully supportive husband.

I started my weight loss journey in August 2012 when I gave birth to a lovely little girl who is now 14 months old. When I gave birth to her I was weighing in at well… to be honest I’m not actually sure how much I weighed as I stopped checking. With my first two children I put on 15-20 kilos for each pregnancy and on my third I didn’t weigh myself

Jacinta Loses 17kg

At a few months after my third baby I was stuck at around 86 kilos. I had been looking into the The Healthy Mummy plans for a while as they were breastfeeding friendly. I was ready to take on the challenge. But I thought, wait, how do I go on a ‘diet’ with 3 kids, a husband that does shift work and a tight budget?

So I decided not to do it, then one day I got up and thought I will just peek and see how much it is, $50, $70, $100? No, to my absolute surprise it was much less than that and I thought, well I can do that. So I pulled my finger out and bought the 28 day diet and exercise plan, went out and got everything I needed and started the plan. My kids and husband have liked the majority of things I have cooked from the 28 day healthy eating plan.

At the end of the first week of eating what felt like more than what I usually would eat I was VERY surprised to find out I had lost 3 kilos. That’s right in one week I had got myself down to 82 kilos and had so much more energy and the kids LOVED it.

Since that first week I have thoroughly enjoyed the so-called diet that I have been on. I have strayed here and there from the diet like over Easter and on birthdays and so forth but weighing myself this morning I am proud to say that I am now 69 kilos and it is the easiest weight I have ever lost.

Now that I am down to my pre-baby weight I am now aiming to get down to my pre-husband weight – so another 10 kilos to go. A few people commented on how great I look and asked what I’m doing and I haven’t hesitated to tell them all about the wonderful things I’ve been eating and how great I feel.

And to top it all off I have purchased my first bikini in about ten years and I look the best I have looked in about ten years too.
