Lainie Armstrong is a mum-of-three based in Canberra and has lost 18kg following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. She credits The Healthy Mummy Smoothies for her success!

“I had no real defining moment, I was asked by a friend to accompany him on a bush walk one day and that is when I realised how much I enjoyed it and decided to keep it up,” she says.

“I have lost roughly 18kg all up since December 2021.” AMAZING!

In fact, Lainie says she is more active without really trying!

“I used to sit on the lounge most days watching TV but I’m now constantly moving and hardly sitting down now that I’ve returned to working full time,” she says.

“I also don’t feel as tired as I used to, I have more energy and don’t feel ‘blah’ and lethargic all day anymore. I can see small changes in my body.”

Amazingly, Lainie says that she rarely goes a day without exercising.

“As I progress, I will see more changes, but the changes so far in the amount of time is amazing,” she says.

Mentally, I have noticed that I can’t go a day with out doing even a small workout. My self control has also improved immensely.”

What Lainie eats on a typical day

Breakfast: Smoothie with spinach, banana, chia seeds, almond milk and whatever smoothie powder I feel like that day. (I used to always skip breakfast)

Lunch: Usually, a salad with either chicken or tuna.

Dinner: Meal cooked from the app, based on what my picky children and husband will eat. 

Snacks: I make the healthy snacks from the app. Muffins, slices etc. nothing too sweet as I’m not a big sweets person now. 

“I also have at least 3 litres of water each day. I have daily smoothies. Salted Caramel is my absolute favourite! 

“I also use the body firming lotion, collagen powder, Carb X and Control X.

Workouts: I do a 1.5 hour power walk around my neighbourhood or 40 minutes on my elliptical each day. 

Lainie’s tips for staying on track

1. Drink lots of water, it helps to keep you full.

2. Don’t push yourself too hard. Slow and steady wins the race. Changes won’t happen overnight

3. Not all victories are weight victories.

4. Don’t try and do it alone. Try and involve the family, or The Healthy Mummy Facebook groups are great for support.
