All this mum needed to do was believe in herself!
Julie wanted to make a change and also make her health a priority, so that’s when she decided to join The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and started drinking the smoothies. And she really saw the results, as she managed to drop 15kg in 5 months!
Julie has maintained her weight loss for two years. Here’s how…
What Julie does
“It took me around five months to lose the 15kg and I have been maintaining the loss for around two years now,” says Julie, who is now a size 8 from a size 14.
Julie has been following the meal plans and incorporating the smoothies into her plan for breakfast and snacks, as well as running six days a week and using a range of exercises in the Challenge hub.
However, Julie’s journey did have some setbacks. Her second child was suffering from medical issues, she had a severe allergic reaction to cow milk protein at nine weeks old which resulted in hospitalisation, and this meant Julie had to remove all dairy from her diet while she was breastfeeding.
“Alongside this, my daughter has had a few other health issues which have seen her in and out of the hospital constantly,” Julie said.
But Julie has managed to stay on track by keeping herself as prepared as possible, she did this by making sure she was as healthy as possible so she could look after her daughter.
Julie makes it a point to be active so her kids can SEE what she’s doing and join in!
As a working mum, Julie cooks extra serves of dinner meals to have as lunches the following day to save time.
Julie says, “My whole family eats the meals from the Challenge.”

Julie adds, “Never underestimate a positive mindset – I spent so much of my younger life being negative and thinking negatively and once I was able to let all that go and start viewing the world in a much more positive mindset, I have noticed the difference majorly!
