“I had a Healthy Mummy twin pregnancy and continued my Healthy Mummy journey whilst being postpartum. Between 1 month postpartum with the twins until now I have lost 14 kilos and over 60cm, as well as being a size 14 to a size 12.

“I have maintained my weight loss for a few months and in between that time I have increased my strength and fitness.

Enjoying my journey and loving the person I see looking back at me in the mirror.”

Stacey’s top tips:

  • Remember why you want to change then just start making small changes. This will help you establish what works for you and your family.
  • Remember it is not a race. Sometimes you have to be patient and stay consistent for some of the changes and goals you have within yourself to happen.
  • Not every day will be perfect or go according to plan. So make sure you love yourself every day especially on those hard days.

Tarryn Eames has lost 23 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

Tarryn, 28, is a mum of 3 (aged 1,5 & 7) and lives in Campbelltown, Sydney.

Tarryn shares, “In 19 months with the help of the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the Healthy Mummy products I have lost 23kgs, over 100cms from my body and gained confidence and self-love!

“My goals for 2020 are to lose another 10-15 kilos and see me reach my healthy BMI, be able to run 5km, gain strength and continue to share my journey with women all over the world!

“I signed up to the Lifetime Membership in March 2019 when it was on a super sale with a payment plan after seeing results from using the products and free recipes. So this will be my 9th x 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

“One of the biggest changes throughout my journey has been my mental transformation. I went from a sad, emotional, depressed woman who had zero self confident and dreaded doing out in public to a woman who enjoys socialising and meeting new people, who is happy, has confidence and self love and someone who was able to use that confidence to bare all and be photographed in bra and undies for the upcoming 2nd edition of the Healthy Mummy Magazine!

“My reason for doing and absolutely LOVING the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, because it’s so simple. All the hard work is done for me! I have everything I need at the touch of a button! I have family friendly recipes, I have workouts I can complete in the comfort of my own home and I have a place to log all of my day to help keep my accountable and on track! Also because it has helped me become the happiest, healthiest and strongest I have ever been, both physically and mentally!”

Tarryn’s top tips:

  • Start small, focus on changing one area of your lifestyle at a time to avoid overwhelming yourself! Remember baby steps still move you forward!
  • Trust the journey – Don’t focus only on weight loss. Focus on becoming healthier in all aspects of your life and trust the process. Measure your success in photos, measurements and how you feel. Don’t only rely on those pesky scales!
  • Share your journey, all of it. Even the tough times! Where it’s in the main group, or privately to a loved one. It will help keep you motivated, accountable and on track! Plus the support will help you push through when times get tough.

Healthy Mummy Smoothies

“I absolutely LOVE the Healthy Mummy Smoothies! My all-time favourite flavour is banana! They have been a real life saver for me! I have one every day for breakfast and almost every day for lunch. Sometimes even dinner on those nights where I cannot be bothered but still want something that’s good for me!”

Tarryn’s favourite Healthy Mummy recipe:

“My favourite meal on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge would have to be Creamy Mushroom and Bacon Ravioli, it’s actually my whole families favourite! So quick easy and delicious. My favourite snacks by far would have to be the Crackers with Cheese and Salami, the Wholegrain Crackers with cheese and tomato and the Weetbix slice! YUM! I could honestly never get tired of them!”

Ashleigh

Ashleigh, 26, from Dubbo NSW, is mum to a 4 year old son and a one year old daughter.

Ashleigh shares, “I am a super busy Mum, I juggle full-time study, part-time work, a small side business, and the normal household stuff.

“I started with the Healthy Mummy in mid-2015 and over 6 months I original lost 12kgs and over 100cms- size 22-24 to a 12-14. I ended up maintaining this loss for 2 years and in 2018 fell pregnant. I had an amazing pregnancy journey thanks to the Healthy Mummy and I was able to not gain any weight.

“In those early few months I battled through postnatal depression, the excuses and emotional eating crept in. I am now sitting at only 5kg from my heaviest weight but still a size 14-16. I am healthier and more toned. The scales are definitely just a number.

Ashleigh’s 2020 goal:

‘My goal for 2020 is to ultimately lose 10-15kgs. My body likes to lose weight extremely slowly. As this is disheartening the scales are only a number I would like to see an over improvement in my fitness, toning and clothes size. As a tallish girl (172cm) with a bigger frame, I WOULD be ecstatic if I was a comfortable size 10-12.

“My goal for between now and the end of January is hopefully 5kg ready for a night out for my 10 year anniversary with my partner.

Why Ashleigh LOVES the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge:

“I love that the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is made for busy Mums like me. I love that everything you need is in one space, recipes, exercise videos, mindset, trackers, meal planning. You can choose to do it all or just follow along as you need. You can add on other products like Healthy Mummy Smoothies, Super Greens or Metabolism tablets. Even Control X. Which I cannot wait to try!

“My favourite feature at the moment in the app is the Meal inspiration tab. With so many recipes you will never get bored. Plus the recipes are family friendly, easy to prepare and delicious. No food groups are missing, I still get to enjoy, chocolate, pasta, cakes, and slices.”

Ashleigh’s favourite Healthy Mummy recipes:

“Some of my favourite meals are the Stovetop lasagna, Chicken and mango filo parcels, Pesto salmon, Porkchop with mushroom sauce.”

Stovetop-Family-Friendly-Beef-Lasagne-2

Healthy Mummy Smoothies

“My favourite Healthy Mummy Smoothie flavours are choc fudge and caramel. I love mine with 300mls almond milk, frozen banana and baby spinach for a vegetable hit. I am going to aim for a daily Smoothie for breakfast or lunch during January.”

Ashleigh’s top tips:

  • Small changes add up to big results. You don’t have to change everything at once. Focus on a few small goals. Once you are hitting them add a few new ones.
  • Water is amazing. Keep hydrated. If you forget to drink regularly try adding 250mls to your intake at meal times.
  • Take those photos. Grab a goal outfit pop it on. It may look horrible now but sometime in the near future you will rock it. Sometimes you cannot see the changes in the mirror or on the scales.

Ashleigh adds, “I cannot wait to share more of my journey with you as one of your January Motivating Mums and hit those goals alongside you.”

Courtney has lost 27 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

Courtney, 32, mum of Zoe, 6, from Melbourne, Vic.

Courtney shares, “I have lost 27kg with The Healthy Mummy and have maintained this loss for over 6 months.  I have been following the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for 22 months.

“I have seen huge changes in my body over the last nearly 2 years. I have been able to regain full use of my knee, after a full knee reconstruction a few years ago. I had very little use of it while I weighed nearly 90kgs, at 60 kgs I have reduced an enormous amount of pressure from my body and can now play a full game of netball comfortably.

“I am doing the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to improve my whole life. I have changed the way we eat, the way we exercise and the way we live as a whole. I love being a good healthy role model to my 6-year-old daughter, with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge I can really show my daughter how to treat our bodies well.”

Courtney’s goal for 2020:

“My goals for 2020 are to maintain my weight loss and improve my fitness. I’d also love to tone up my body.”

“My goal changes with each loss I had. I started with The Healthy Mummy weighing 87kgs, my initial goal was 70-75kgs – and I wanted a healthy BMI as I was in the obese category. I got to 75 kgs and loved the way I felt. I loved how The Healthy Mummy worked, and I knew I was going to get to wherever I wanted to with this. I kept working on myself and hit 60kgs after 14 months. I have maintained 60kgs since May this year. I am in a healthy BMI category and love how I’m feeling.”

Courtney’s top tips:

  • Be realistic, you are unlikely to lose 10kgs a month and maintain that. Aim for something acheivable, 500 grams to 1kg per week is a great goal.
  • Cook for your whole family. Choose family friendly meals and make sure everyone is involved. You are much more likely to stick with it if you’re not cooking multiple meals each night.
  • Ask for support, use the Healthy Mummy support group to your full advantage. There are thousands of women going through the same things, make sure to ask questions, ask for help, shout out your victories – absolutely everything!

Healthy Mummy Smoothies:

“I love The Healthy Mummy Smoothies. I have a Smoothie most days, either for breakfast or as a snack – or sometimes even dinner on those super hot or busy nights. I also love my Smoothies in a bowl. They are an absolutely delicious meal when you can dress them up with delicious toppings.”

Courtney’s favourite Healthy Mummy recipes:

“My favourite meal changes all the time. In summer it is the Pear, Rocket and Parmesan Salad. I use this salad as a side with heaps of different meals, or have it as a full lunch. It is super delicious. My favourite snack is Snickers Mousse. It is super yummy on a hot summer night.”

Bernie has lost 16.7 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

“My 2020 goal is to lose 6.25 kgs to get to 60 kgs and to tone my body.

“I have noticed my physical health has improved I find myself having more energy throughout the day, my mental health has improved I find I’m so much happier. I am doing the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to create a healthier and happier lifestyle for me and my family.”

Bernie’s top tips:

  • Start small change one thing at a time
  • Increase water intake

Sally Stepniewski has lost 41 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge


Sally, 36, full-time working mum to 6 year old twins and little miss 3.

Sally shares, “I found The Healthy Mummy in April 2017 and lost 41kgs in 15 months.

“I have the energy to keep up and run with my kids and found a confidence I never knew existed. We are active as a family.

“I started so I could be there for my kids. I used to sit on the side and watch, everything hurt and I was breathless. I want my kids to have fun, to try new things and be healthy.

“The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has simplified the stress of meal planning, shopping and I love having everything I need at my fingertips. As a coeliac, I love being able to get a customised meal plan that tastes delicious!”

Sally’s 2020 goal:

“I want to be strong, fit, healthy and focus on fitness as I work towards running my first full marathon. Any weight loss along the way is a bonus.

Sally’s top tips:

  • Keep it simple, start small, making drastic changes can be overwhelming. Focus on food choices, driving your water or stepping up your exercise and step it up when you’ve got your head around it.
  • Take photos!!! Don’t be so focused on the scales or on other people’s progress. It is YOUR journey and a picture shows more than any number ever could. I regret not getting good full body shots at the beginning of my journey and not being in the photos.
  • Make time for you. You are doing an incredible job juggling all the crazy of life, you deserve some time!!! Whether it be bath, face mask, good book, or a walk in the fresh air, make it happen. You can’t pour from an empty cup.

Sally’s favourite Healthy Mummy recipes:

“My favourite meal is the Beef San Choy Bow and Peanut Butter Chicken Curry. My fave snack is Choc Cherry Slice and Chocolate Lava Mug Cake.

“I start every single day with a Healthy Mummy Smoothie, it is the best to prepare and drink on the way to work, school or drink at home. Also the best way to prepare for my morning run.”

Angie Shannon has lost 10 kilos on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

Angie, 22, is a mum of two children (an almost 3yo son and a 1 year old daughter) from Dubbo NSW.

Angie shares, “I have been following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for my second journey since January 2019! In this time I’ve managed to lose 10kg while breastfeeding and also lose numerous centimetres and 2-3 dress sizes. I’ve gone from 75.8kg to 65.5kg, currently fluctuating between 65.5kg-65.9kg!”

Angie’s 2020 goals:

“I have so many goals for 2020! One being to be able to run, lose another 10kg-15kg, start to tone and really be more consistent overall to create more healthy habits.

“I’ve seen some AMAZING benefits of following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge not only weight loss! I’m so much healthier, my skin is definitely clearer, I wake up feeling energised and ready to go even on minimal sleep, I can breathe easier and run around and play with my kids without becoming puffed out which is a MAJOR plus since I have asthma!”

Angie’s top tips:

  • Make sure to keep your water bottle on you or around you all the time! Water plays a huge part in keeping you healthy and flushing out all the toxins! It’s an amazing key ingredient for weight loss!
  • Keep it super simple! Keep your meal plan really simple to start with so you don’t become overwhelmed. I keep my breakfast, lunch and 3 snacks the same all week, only changing up our dinners.
  • Take it one day at a time. If you focus on now and not the long run it becomes easier to do and less overwhelming again. Focus on making it through 24hrs! Wake up and feel proud and do it again!

Healthy Mummy Smoothies:

“I use the Healthy Mummy Smoothies most days for breakfast and one for a snack, I absolutely love the convenience and that they’re super tasty which makes it feel like a treat! I also absolutely love boiled eggs, you can eat them whole, smash them, add curry powder to them or even take them with you! It’s a good source of protein and keeps you full!

Angie adds, “I am so ready and so excited to be a motivating mum for January and I cannot wait to share my journey with you all!”

  • Sit down and get used to the meal plan, watch the videos that show you the app features and how they work.
  • Customise the meal plan to foods you already like, have a look through all the recipes and see what you might like to try.

8 year old daughter and 6 year old son. I don’t have a favourite but the baby is the easiest.

“I decided 2019 was MY year and I was finally going to focus on my health and mental wellbeing.

“I started Jan 1st at 132.9 kgs and am now 101.7 ( I did get down to 99.8 but somehow those sneaky kilos found me again).

“I have lost over 150 cms over my body and 32 cms in my waist alone.

Kim’s goals for 2020:

My goal for 2019 was to lose the bulk of my weight in a healthy no quick fix way.

“My 2020 goal is the last 10-15 kgs, tone and increase my fitness and run a half marathon in August at the sunshine coast marathon with a few more races in between.

“I used to live off junk food and use bad food to help with the stress of raising 4 kids and work. I now know fueling my body with healthy food makes me feel so much better, my mind is clearer and I don’t feel as stressed from sugar overload.”

Kim’s top tips:

  • Take it one day, one foot at a time. When you’re starting your journey, the distance or amount of weight can seem unachievable if you look at the end goal/ number. But take small steps/ make smaller goals
  • The number on the scale doesn’t always reflect your efforts. Take pictures and measurements. More than 1 way to measure your progress.
  • Don’t beat yourself up if you’re are having a bad day, or have a ‘cheat meal ‘. 1 day or meal won’t undo all your hard work. Tomorrow is a new day.
