Mum loses 40kg and celebrates her weight loss with a meaningful tattoo

Setting goals for yourself is a great incentive on your weight loss journey, as it gives you something to work towards.

Christine Stewart has managed to lose a huge 40kg following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, but before she did she promised herself if she reached her goal weight she’d get a tattoo to mark her success.

Christine has dropped the 40kg after having two kids in just 18 months and is more than 30kg under her pre-pregnancy starting point. Incredible!

Losing the weight

Christine reveals it all started in October 2016 after she stepped on the scales and noticed she had put on weight.

“Enough was enough and I decided it was time to put myself first,” she says. “I’d been overweight all of my life and was always shy and scared to enjoy life.”

Christine says when she started her weight loss journey, she believed the changes would take forever. But she quickly joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and decided to purchase some Healthy Mummy Smoothies too.

“I started following the meal plans and I fell in love with the foods,” she says. “I began by just walking and pushing my 35kg double pram for an hour five days a week, plus gym sessions six or seven days a week.”

Christine decided to reward herself with a tattoo if she lost the weight, choosing a design that had a strong meaning.

After losing 40kg, Christine decided to get a beautiful water colour lotus flower tattoo.

“The flower itself has a strong meaning to me, I grew up fast raising my brother and looking after my mum from 10 years old, so the lotus growing in the mud to a beautiful flower was a representation of me,” she says.

“I have been through tough times but now I can be proud to call myself beautiful due to the confidence my weight loss has given me.

“The colours I picked also have their own meaning – green is for health, pink is for love and purple is for rebirth.”

How beautiful! Thanks for sharing your wonderful story with us, Christine.
