Weight Loss

This mum lost 32kg* by taking 1 hour for herself each day

Melissa Timmer first started her Healthy Mummy journey 6 months ago, starting off at 107kg. By using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, Melissa is now 75kg!

Melissa was hesitant to start but after experimenting with the app and recipes she couldn’t be more committed and is a shadow of her former self.

“I love the motivation I get from all the amazing people in this group, especially Ash and her live feeds as it keeps me going.”

Consistency is key

Losing a total of 32kg is something Melissa, a mum of two, is committed to completely and her astounding results are proof!

Here is how Melissa did it…

What is your favourite recipe and smoothie?

I do love the Creamy Carbonara from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, pasta is my weakness. Sometimes I’ll have zucchini instead of pasta and just shred it like spaghetti.

My favourite Healthy Mummy Smoothie is banana and strawberry and I do love making the sneaky “Snickers”  for a sweet treat. My go-to smoothie is strawberry smoothie mix, frozen banana, skim milk, ice, yoghurt and honey.

Do you ever allow yourself to a day off?

I do. I usually have 1 cheat day a week but don’t go overboard. I think there’s nothing better tasting than feeling healthy and being able to fit into my old clothes, having that confidence has been life changing for me.

What’s your secret formula?

I put myself first for 1 hour a day. I make no excuses anymore. I’m a mum of 2, we have a mortgage, I run my own business, and my partner works, but I still make time to train. My health and happiness is more important than the cleaning or washing right now.

What do you do for yourself?

I’m such a better person now, I was falling into a bad depression and I knew if I didn’t get my self up and going I wouldn’t be able to get myself out of that hole I was in.

What’s your biggest tip for other mums on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?

My biggest tip would be consistency, you have to put the effort in. I worked my butt off to get where I am. It took about 4 months of hard work before anyone even noticed I was losing weight, so don’t let this deter you from keeping going.

Dedication is the key. Some nights I’d have people over and everyone would be eating ice cream, drinking soft drink and having pasta and they would always say to me to just go ahead and have an ice cream or eat more, but I wouldn’t and thats how I got the results I have today.
