Jemma has lost a massive 50kg with The Healthy Mummy and is proud that she has stuck at it for 2 years and is still maintaining her weight and has never been happier or healthier in her life!
Jemma Hahn tells The Healthy Mummy, “I have lost a total of 50kg thanks to The Healthy Mummy app – I first started with the Healthy Mummy recipes and lost 20kg then incorporated exercise as well and I lost a further 30kg.
I have lost and gained weight a lot throughout my life and lost weight because I didn’t like how I looked and would obsess on the scale.
This time I took time to work on myself first, found love for myself again and changed my lifestyle out of love and wanting to look after myself and be healthy not to ‘lose weight’.
Jemma loves The Healthy Mummy app and says it has helped her maintain her weight loss for the past 2 years.
“The Healthy Mummy app helped so much with the meal plans, recipes, exercises and also the supportive community, it is now 2 years later I’m maintaining my weight and have never been happier or healthier in my life!”
“I love how I have access to all these amazing recipes and workouts. The app meals are so completely incorporated into our lives that I don’t even have to check the app anymore!“
It’s not just the food that helped Jemma, she loves The Healthy Mummy workouts too! Jemma says her favourites are “Pilates, Dancefit and the Kids Workouts (I easily chromecast the exercises to my tv from the app) and sometimes I just walk if that’s all I have time for.”
It has been a long and painful journey for Jemma who lost 30kg in 2021 then had 2 major BRCA1 preventative surgeries (full hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy in Feb 2022 then a double mastectomy with reconstruction in June 2022). After her surgeries Jemma needed months of bed rest, patience and healing which saw her gain 10kg, “But it was worth it to allow my body and mind time to heal,” Jemma tells us.
As a result of many difficulties, Jemma knew she needed to recover holistically and understand how to reset her healthy lifestyle and overcome her bad habits. She took a course on women’s empowerment and through this she has discovered how important it is to nurture and love yourself for you to be the best for your loved ones.
In August last year Jemma was well enough to get back to her Healthy Mummy lifestyle and took it to a whole other level focusing on nutritious food and exercise and lost 10kg by January!
She then started swimming laps with her mum (and feeling good in her swimmers and not thinking that she would lose much more weight) and lost an additional 30kg to see her weighing 55kg and going from size 14 to size 8.
“As a mother I love that I have turned my health challenges into a positive mind, strong body and a happy healthy lifestyle for myself and my children.
Every aspect of my life has changed for the better so I not only look like a whole new person, I think differently, my mindset is healthy, I really am a whole new person and we love it!“
