Stacey’s weight loss journey

Now studying to becoming a personal trainer and help others achieve what she has, Stacey is realising the importance of health.

Skipping breakfast is a well-known contributor to weight gain and or disrupted blood sugar levels. For example, you can read how eating breakfast EVERY day helped this mama go from a size 16 to 8.

Drinking The Healthy Mummy Smoothies (particularly banana) for breakfast everyday, means Stacey is nourishing herself as soon as she starts the day as she previously wouldn’t eat breakfast or if she did it would be sugar laden jam on toast.

Stacey says, “I was so unfit, puffed to walk even a few hundred metres, it was really affecting my health. I hated doing anything with my kids, I was so depressed, fast food was my go-to food, not to mention the chocolate and soft drink I craved and had daily.”

Food is important

The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge also helped Stacey realise just how sticking to a healthy meal plan and food in general is.

Only buying what she meal plans for, bulk buying at Costco is a way to save on food for Stacey and her family.

Meal prepping snacks once a week, Stacey searches in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Recipe Hub what snacks to make for the week, getting her kids input also! “I love having bulk sweet potato soup in the freezer, even in summer,” Stacey adds.

Stacey says that food is so important to lose weight, so you need to be eating the right food. Without food your body won’t be able to burn anything, have energy to exercise or continue its bodily functions. 

Making sure she gets to 10,000 steps is also a must on Stacey’s to do list. 

Today at 74kg, Stacey feels amazing, “I am so fit, I can run and I don’t get puffed out, I love joining in with my kids, I am the best mum now that I have ever been in my life.”
