How Lina lost 21kg in just seven months
37-year-old Lina is a busy mum to two boys, and she says a couple of years ago, she had some health issues and put on a lot of weight after the birth of her second son.
“I was tired all the time, not just running around after kids but I was feeling old and I couldn’t remember the last time I had spring in my step,” she says.
“A friend of a friend had a great success story with this program called The Healthy Mummy and so we both decided to give it a go together as well as exercising together.”
Lina started off with walking on the weekend then doing Dance Cardio from The Healthy Mummy app.
“For meals, I replaced my breakfast and lunch with The Healthy Mummy smoothies,” she says. “Dairy products don’t really agree with my body so it was great to find that the smoothie don’t contain any milk powder like many others on the market and I love the taste too – it’s so yummy.
“My favourite flavours are original vanilla and chocolate. My favourite recipe from the Healthy Mummy app are mocha wake up protein smoothie and green booster smoothie.”
For dinner, Lina also follows recipes from the app, as she likes all the variety.
“The thing that I’ve realised that I was doing so wrong was portion control,” she says. “It took a little while to get used to the smaller meals but the reality is that you don’t need more what is recommended.
“For snacks, I make the bliss balls from the recipe on the app and I also occasionally have Healthy Mummy Double Chocolate snack bar. If I still feel hungry I have Control X in between meals. I also make sure I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday.”
Lina has gone from a size 14 down to a size 6!
The gorgeous mum says she makes sure she does more than 10,000 steps daily also likes doing Booty Band Workouts, Dance Cardio and Fit programs on The Healthy Mummy app.
“My original weight was 82.8 kg and size 14. In the first two months, I lost 10 kg but has slowed a bit since then because of the Christmas and Easter break. My weight is now is 64 kg and size 10 or 8 (some brands I could fit in with size 6),” she says.
“So far, I’ve been on the program for a total of 6-6.5 months. I felt my energy levels have increased and I have energy to chase my boys around. My general wellbeing has improved and I feel much happier with life.”

Lina’s tips for success
- Do not give up if you have bad day. It’s important to get back into the program as soon as possible and not let a bad meal snowball.
- Have a smoothie to snack to curb cravings. When you are feeling like you want to eat something naughty I find that I just try to have my smoothie early or have a healthy snack because the longer I think about making bad choice the more likely I am to do it.
