How this mum has lost 20kg and boosted her confidence

This amazing mum-of-one says she’s lost 20kg and dropped two dress sizes, and she’s now aiming to lose 35kg.

“I’m from Melbourne and we were heading into the long six month lockdown and I was heading towards 120kg and I did not want to get to that point,” she says.

“I decided I wasn’t going to let lockdown make me gain anymore weight and that’s when I signed up for Healthy Mummy and I haven’t looked back!

“I have lost 20 kilos so far. I am aiming for 35 kilos.”

Jacqueline feels less breathless and feels more confident

Best of all, Jacqueline has noticed a heap of positive changes with her weight loss.

“I have so much more energy to be able to play with my daughter. I have an all around of just feeling so much better and feeling healthier,” she says.

“I can walk a lot more without feeling breathless, I’m able to feel better when working out, my thighs aren’t touching as much which is massive for me!

“Plus, I have so much more confidence. I’m not so hard on myself as I used to be.”

What a typical day looks like for Jacqueline

Breakfast: A Healthy Mummy smoothie

Snacks: Weet-Bix slice and balls, apple and cinnamon bars, cauliflower

Dinners and lunches: Feta fritters, pork and lettuce cups, beef nachos.


“I do the same four work outs everyday. Real mum work out #4, Tabata core work out, the full body Tabata and the beginner step work out.”

Jacqueline’s 3 tips for success

  • Don’t focus on the scales
  • Drink lots of water
  • I have found having a meal replacement smoothie has really helped
“Don’t get so caught up with the scales. I got to a point I was checking the scales daily and would get upset if I had gain weight. Focus on how it makes you feel & how lose your clothes start to change!”
