Shantelle Brumfield reveals her weight has yo-yoed over the last 10 years but after discovering The Healthy Mummy she has dropped 20kg.

Mum-of-five Shantelle says she has suffered with ankle problems since 2018 and that’s why her weight has been up and down.

“When I was just about to have my last baby, I was 130kg and my body ached.  It was then I decided I needed to get back to a fit and healthy weight so that I can play with my kids and chase after them,” she says.

“I started with The Healthy Mummy making the free recipes and some smoothies in May 2021.

“Then as I started losing weight and getting my motivation back, so I become a platinum member of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, and now my  family and I are following it strictly. 

“My husband has lost 15kg and I have lost 20kg in 6 months. Health wise, I feel better in myself  my  body aches less, I feel less tired.”

Shantelle’s day on a plate

Breakfast: Healthy Mummy smoothie.  Normally with chocolate, banana, ice, spinach, almond milk and peanut butter.

Morning tea: Fruit

Lunch: I mix it up between left over dinners, baked potato, the sweet potato and pumpkin soup, hidden veg sausage rolls.

Afternoon snack:  Normally a choc brownie cookie, Weet-Bix slice, Hidden Veg Sausage Roll or rice cakes with peanut butter and banana.

Dinner: My fave would be curried sausages and Stove Top Lasagne.

Dessert: Panna cotta or hot chocolate.

Workouts: Dance workouts with Jade.

Shantelle’s 3 tips for success

*Start small

*Plan and prepare

*Be proud every little step you take to a healthier you.

“Other advice would be to remember there’s no quick fix.  Stay off the scales and go by how you feel. 

“Remember not to punish yourself for a treat meal here and there.  Less guilty feelings make it a lifestyle not a diet.”
