The 30-year-old mum-of-three signed up to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in 2014 after the birth of her second daughter and successfully lost 20kg

However, after the birth of her third daughter she says she put on weight and it was the heaviest she’d ever been.

Committing to the 12 Week Challenge was just what she needed to drop kilos and enjoy some other benefits.

“I have noticed my mental health has improved, I don’t feel as stressed as I once did. I have also noticed my complexion has improved and I feel physically stronger,” she says.
