Mum Nicole never dreamt that one day she would one day be posing in underwear at BODY CONFIDENCE photo shoot. But after losing a MASSIVE 60kg and getting her life and health back on track she has good reason too.
She shares how she lost 60kg and and has gone from hating herself to being body confident and proud! And why her life has never been better.
Nicole Marnell is one of 7 AMAZING mums who were invited to take part in The Healthy Mummy’s EPIC BODY CONFIDENCE photo shoot in Sydney.
The first of 3 photo shoots around the world (others in New York and London) celebrating women of all sizes and ages who are living their best and healthiest lives.
But Nic has not always been the energetic, body confident mum she is today. Here is her story.
“Some days I didn’t even know if I would wake up!”
Nic found The Healthy Mummy during one of the darkest times in her life – just after her marriage had ended.
Feeling the weight of the world on her shoulders and in a deep depression, she says “Some days I didn’t even know if I would wake up.
I couldn’t look after myself, let alone my 3 kids!”.
Ready to make a change
One day Nic woke up and knew should needed to make a change. She says “I just knew I needed to do something for my kids, but most of all for me. I needed to find ME”.
Joining The Healthy Mummy
When Nic signed up to The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges she was at her heaviest – weighing 146kgs.
She says the day she found The Healthy Mummy was the first day of the rest of her life.
With access to thousands of delicious recipes, meal plans, and exercises videos via the Challenge App together with the encouragement of the incredibly supportive and non-judgemental online support network of mums, Nic was able to lose significant weight and transform her body and mind.
Nic says “The menu plans help keep me on track and the exercises at my fingertips are great for the days when I can’t get out of the house.
But it’s also more than that. It’s a community of support, motivation, inspiration and friendship. There’s nothing out there like it.”
“If it wasn’t for my local consultant group I would not have found such amazing friends and a passion for running.”
“I run. Let me say that again, I’M A RUNNER!! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that would be me.”
Weight loss – 60kg
Nic has lost 60kg all up and 43kg of that lost with The Healthy Mummy!
“I owe The Healthy Mummy my life!”
“The Healthy Mummy is more than just a weight loss program” says Nic. “It’s a lifestyle.
I’ve found ‘ME’. I’ve found my passion; a zest for life; and I’ve forged some amazing friends. I’m happier, healthier and fitter.
My mental health is fantastic. My marriage is back on track and better than ever. I have a real smile now. I’m happy. My kids are happy and best of all we are happy together, being active and healthy.
I owe The Healthy Mummy my life and family.”
Wow! What an INSPIRATION you are Nic. The Healthy Mummy team are so incredibly happy for you. You deserve the wonderful life and happiness you have created for yourself.
