The last 2 years have been an extremely traumatic and trying time for mum Gemma. Her daughter having open heart surgery, losing her mum, losing her mother-in-law to cancer and moving house.
It’s enough to make anyone sink into a dark hole. And she did.
However, during this heart wrenching time, with the help of The Healthy Mummy Private Support Group and 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges, she has overcome depression, gained mental and physical strength, lost weight, and found happiness. She shares her story below.
Gemma’s weight loss journey
Gemma is 32 years old and has a 4 year old daughter. She lives in far North Queensland and has been following the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges since July 2017.
Gemma is now only 3Kgs away from her goal weight of 55Kgs, and the bikini body she has been striving for. And best of all, after a very traumatic 2 years, her depression is gone and she is fitter and stronger than ever.
