Michelle’s weight loss transformation
Michelle has lost 50.1kg on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!!
Michelle reveals she disliked the way she looked and didn’t want to leave her home in fear of being judged.
“I hated the way I looked and felt. I was not the best partner or mother,” she admits. “Which made me even more depressed, feeling like my family deserved better.
Michelle reveals she came across The Healthy Mummy and watched quietly on our private facebook support group for a few months, purchased the Smoothies and also signed up for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Michelle says, “When I started putting myself first, it got easier. I did not have mother’s guilty because I knew that I was doing it for me, but also for my family.”
