Meet our Motivating Mums this month
“Hi, I’m Sophie, I’m 26 years old and live in Adelaide. I have 5 month old boy and 14 year old fur baby.”
Sophie’s success with The Healthy Mummy
“I first joined The Healthy Mummy August 2020 with the goal to loose a few kg and become healthier prior to trying for my son. Since having him in October 2020, I have lost 10kg and still have more to lose.
“Since being apart of The Healthy Mummy, I have improved not only in my physical health but my mental health too. I’m still continuing to do the Challenges to lose weight but also just continue with this healthy lifestyle, not only for me but my whole family.”
Sophie’s goal for this month
“Exercise 5 times a week, drink 2 litres of water everyday and lose weight no matter how small.”
Sophie’s top tips for getting started
1. Start simple and make small changes.
Such as focussing on just your water intake to start.
2. Set small achievable goals daily
These can include going for a walk, drinking your water, taking time for you and taking part in self-care and eating your calories.
3. Being kind to yourself
Making any change to becoming fit and healthy is positive. It’s not all about losing weight it’s about making healthy changes for the long term.
“I have been using the smoothies since I joined The Healthy Mummy and have really loved the flavour the convenience of the smoothies.
“The Challenge app has so so so many delicious recipes, for meals I love the easy cheesy eggplant parmigiana, Mexican Lasagne and for snacks. I love the Choc Lava Microwave Cake and the New York Baked Cheesecake.”
“Hi, I’m Elyce. I’m 29, from Townsville and a mum to three beautiful kids – 8 year old twin boys and a 6 year old daughter.
“I’ve previously lost 30kgs with The Healthy Mummy before I hit a dark spot and regained 10kgs. I’ve been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since November 2017.”
Elyce’s goals for this month
“Horror hit me the other day when I realised I’m 5 months shy from my wedding and I’m still far from my goal weight. My aim for April is to get 100% back on track again, find my worth and successfully lose 5kgs!”
Elyce’s success with The Healthy Mummy
“Before The Healthy Mummy, I was tired, lethargic and had next to no energy, but since I’ve had such success I’ve found confidence, energy and more time for my children! B
“At the beginning of 2017, I was diagnosed with depression and that’s what made me turn my life around. Since losing weight, I’ve been in a healthier mind set and have had a clear view on what’s ahead!
“I aim to get to 80kgs before august this year! Ideally I think 75kgs will be where I’ll stop, but 80kgs will be my decision on whether I need to lose more!
“My favourite has to be the Mongolian Beef Stir Fry and not to mention the Choc Chip Banana Bread for dessert to finish it off!”
Elyce’s top tips
1. Start small
You don’t change overnight so there is no need to change your life around in an instant! Start with the small things and work your way up.
2. Be kind to yourself
Having a bad day? Let it be and start fresh tomorrow. Life isn’t perfect!
3. Drink smoothies for breakfast
Healthy Smoothies are my life saver and I’ve been using them since 2016! I’ve never been a big breakfast eater, so having a smoothie every morning gives me the start to my day I need and I begin on track!
