Meet our inspirational COVER GIRLS!!!

The magazine is full of inspirational stories of mums who have transformed their lives with The Healthy Mummy, including Julie, Samara, and Stephanie, the three incredible women that grace the cover of the magazines 1st edition.

Julie Banham

Julie is a 46 year old  mum to three gorgeous daughters, aged 24, nine and four. She has lost a whopping 48 kgs with hard work, determination and amazing support from The Healthy Mummy.

In January 2017, I weighed 120kg and I was rarely in family photo’s which meant I missed out on so much,” Julie says, “I was never able to wear anything nice and never felt comfortable. I found people treated me differently because I was overweight. I didn’t involve myself when I wasn’t happy with myself”.

Today, Julie weighs 72 kgs and feels like a completely different person. Since being on The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and losing the weight, Julie’s health has been transformed.  Julie wants everyone to know that they are capable of finding healthy, motivation and the reason to change. “Health is important, and the healthier you are the healthier your family is. But most importantly, do this for yourself, nobody else, try to put yourself first (for once) because you’re worth it!!”

Samara Syed

Samara is mum to two beautiful girls, aged six and three. She has been at odds with her weight for years and has experienced bouts of depression, anxiety and also postnatal depression.

I have struggled with my weight most of my life, and had postnatal depression with my second daughter,” Samara says. It was during this time that Samara discovered The Healthy Mummy and her whole life changed forever! She found something that she could grasp onto and it seemed that overnight, she became stronger and more determined than ever before to overcome her struggles and face the world head on.

Through The Healthy Mummy, Smara says she was “suddenly introduced to a completely new way of thinking. I could still have my chocolate treats and lose weight!”

Samara has lost 17 kg with The Healthy Mummy and has maintained it for more than two years.

Stephanie Marriott

Stephaine has three young children, aged six, four and three.  After being overweight for most of her adult life, the turning point came after her third child was born. She was weighing in at 77 kg and was incredibly uncomfortable and embarrassed in her own skin. She had no energy and found it difficult to play outside with her kids. She was constantly exhausted and found herself sitting on the lounge a lot.

Steph was introduced to The Healthy Mummy by a friend who had incredible success with the programme.

I told my husband that if I didn’t see any results within the first three months, I’d stop and try something else – safe to say I will never NOT be a Challenge member”, Steph says, three years later.

She now weighs in at 60 kg and is maintaining her weight just by eating the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meals and drinking The Healthy Mummy Smoothies.

The Healthy  Mummy has completely changed my life. I am now more confident, I enjoy exercise and I love going out and meeting new people.”
