‘The small changes lead to the big ones!’ Mum lost 21kg and becomes a swimming teacher

This mum says she wasn’t one hundred per cent committed when she first started her weight loss journey last year. It wasn’t until she saw a family Christmas photo of herself that Kylie knew she needed to do something more.

That’s when she decided to give it her all on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

“I have lost 21kg using everything Healthy Mummy,” she saysLike other inspiring results from mums on our plans and products Kylie says, “I’ve lost huge numbers in cm from all over my body, 50cm from my waist alone!”

The mum-of-three’s Healthy Mummy journey has also inspired her to make more changes with not only her body – she’s since gone back to studying and has also now completed her training to become a swimming instructor!Kylie Martin 12_12

A role model for her kids

“As a single income family, I wasn’t going to let being a busy mum put my health on the back of my priorities list, I want it for me and my kids,” says Kylie.

As a new role model to her kids, Kylie is showing them healthy habits by eating right and moving her body more.

Kylie says that in order to succeed in your own weight loss journey you need to be prepared and not stand in your own way, “Be honest with yourself and the small changes lead to the big ones.”

A new found love for food

Kylie meal preps for most dinners by cooking triple the amount and saving the rest for future meals in the freezer.

“Hearty chicken soup and lasagna is one of my freezer stocks and bliss balls and doughnuts all freeze really well.”

The gorgeous mama preps snacks in the morning or gets her kids involved in the process in the afternoons. Try get your kids involved in the kitchen with some of these treats. 

Kylie’s all time favourite recipe from the The Heathy Mummy is the lamb meatballs with sweet potato mash because of its simplicity and time factor.  

Using meat from the butcher and fresh food from the farmers market, Kylie finds her shopping to be cheaper as she makes her own snacks, dips and sauces!

Advice
