How this mum lost 20kg, is now feeling less anxious and reversed her fatty liver issues

Here’s how this inspiring mummy lost 20kg on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and learned to control her panic attacks and anxiety in the process.

Kelly Craven reveals it’s not just her physical health that’s improving, but also her mental health.

How this mum lost 20kg and is now feeling less anxious

“I’m finally on the road to better health and a better life. Mentally and physically,” she says.

“Less IBS, less anxiety, less panic attacks, no back pain, no hip pain. I no longer sink in the mattress.

How Kelly lost 20kg

The moment Kelly realised she needed to make a change was when she was eating and not feeling full.

“I had 5 meals in one day and had lost that sense of feeling full in my tummy. So I went to the doctor about it. I was actually frightened,” she says.

“They did some tests and I was told about binge eating and also being diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver in July 2020.

“It’s hard to lose weight as it is, but when you have non alcoholic fatty liver it’s actually a lot harder to lose because the weight just piles on around the mid section.”

That’s when Kelly decided she need to step things up a bit.

“I need to work harder and stronger and the Healthy Mummy recipe hub was a big help with that as I had to start eating healthier, cleaner and cut down on sugar and carbs.”

Kelly was able to reverse her non alcoholic fatty liver

Amazingly, this lovely mum has been able to reverse her non alcoholic fatty liver!

“My moods have improved and I’m smiling more, sleeping better and waking up with energy,” she says.

“I’m able to keep up with my three children and the housework .. everything else that comes along with it is just an added bonus!”

Beforehand, the mum-of-three didn’t think getting in shape was possible.

“I used to think that it was impossible to do it,” she adds.All you need is that positive mindset, patience and will power and you can accomplish anything you want!”
