Bye bye dimples! Mum reduces cellulite and now wears bikinis

Kristie Brice reveals she carried most of her weight in her lower body and never felt confident enough to show off her legs and tum.

But after losing 26kg by following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges, she was able to achieve the gorgeous hot bod she had always hoped for.

Kirstie says “ I noticed a drastic reduction in the amount of cellulite on my thighs and bottom. It has always been a real issue for me.

“Wearing denim shorts and knee length dresses were something I would dream about. But I never had the courage to do it until I joined The Healthy Mummy program.”

Kirstie had been sitting on the sidelines of The Healthy Mummy Facebook pages reading about all these amazing women achieving fantastic results. And on September 23rd 2016 she decided it was time to join herself!

“Within my first month of the 28 Day Challenge I lost 6kgs, which I used as motivation to keep myself on track,” she says.

“I have gained so much self-confidence and have gone from a TV lover to an outdoors adventurer.

“Thanks to The Healthy Mummy I now have a healthy relationship with food and my body. Joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges was the best decision I have made.”

Kristie’s top tips on how to beat cellulite

1. Hydration

“One of my biggest health issues was that I didn’t drink enough water,” she says. “Have you ever looked at an old piece of fruit or vegetable and notice it’s gone soft, the skin has gone wrinkly and the inside is dry?

“This happens when the item has lost its moisture and the same goes for our skin. In order to keep our skin looking full and smooth on the outside, we need to keep it hydrated from the inside. I now aim to drink a minimum of two litres of plain water a day and incorporate green tea when I’m looking for something extra.”

2. Nourish your body

“The foods I now consume have also helped rid me of cellulite. I now try to avoid fast foods or anything that’s high in saturated fats. I choose to fuel my body with fresh whole ingredients and healthy fats.”

3. Exercise

“Once I started exercising on a regular basis my cellulite started disappearing. As my muscle mass grew my cellulite reduced and my skin smoothed out. By keeping my body active and consuming the right foods my weight and body fat percentage went down.

“I really enjoy bike riding and stair sprinting so I try to do both of those multiple times a week along with the Challenge exercises.”

What an amazing transformation, Kristie! We’re glad you’re proud to show off your incredible figure. You’ve earned it!
