When mums support each other incredible things happen! Here at The Healthy Mummy we have a huge community with over 2 million like-minded mums globally, who offer daily support to other Healthy Mummy members.
Two mums found health, weight loss and a friendship for life through the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the Facebook Support Group. They might have never met in person but together have lost a staggering 25 kg’s, 100 cm, 6 clothes-sizes between them.
Siobhan, 39 a busy working mum of two joined The Healthy Mummy after seeing it advertised on Facebook and thought it was exactly what she was looking for.
Siobhan says “I was breastfeeding and knew it was dangerous to “diet”, I wanted to lose weight but do it the healthy way and did not want it to affect my milk supply, then I came across the Healthy Mummy…a program that not only SUPPORTS weight loss but SUPPORTS breastfeeding and is suitable for breastfeeding mummies!
I was attracted to the community with all the incredible results and losses! It seemed a really safe, positive and friendly community that I felt I wanted to be part of.
I met Vanessa in the support group and we automatically clicked, our friendship has grown ever since, both of us wanting to lose weight, be healthy and with young kids the same ages I found we had loads of things in common. It turns out we have a lot of the same interests and love very similar recipes.
We now message daily to see how each other is doing! We help motivate each other and keep each other on track. I know when I’m tired Vanessa will give me a kick up the bum to do a workout! Will we ever meet? Hopefully the near future. I have lost over 12kg’s, 76 cm of my body and went from a size 16 to a Size 10.
What I love the most about the Healthy Mummy Community is that I feel safe to post and love that all the amazing ladies pick you up when you are down and offer amazing advice when you need it. Not only have I lost weight but have made lovely friends from it! Since joining I haven’t looked back.”
Busy working Mum of two Vanessa, joined The Healthy Mummy in December 2017. Vanessa says “Joining the Healthy Mummy has changed my life! I have lost just over 11 kg’s and gone from size 18 to a 12!
I’m doing it to get fitter, healthier and have a better relationship with food that my kids can also benefit from. My goal is to be fit and healthy, stronger, and make better choices!”
Siobhan and I met in The Healthy Mummy Private Support Group in February 2018, we had loads in common, seemed to enjoy the same foods, both had two young children and juggling work and family life. We were both trying to increase our exercise and make lifestyle changes. Siobhan has kept me in track many times – if I was having a bad day, and tempted to eat chocolate or sabotage she has, in many occasions, told me to put the chocolate down and go for water instead or make a better choice. The support has really helped keep me focused. She has been an inspiration with her weight loss and maintaining it, and the support definitely keeps me motivated. The distance is what has kept us from meeting up but I know that one day in the near future we will, it’s just a matter of time.”
What I love about The Healthy Mummy Private Support Group is the support and friendships and non judgemental ladies in the community. Everybody is keen to help each other, encourage and push to get results. It is so supportive, and it is probably one of the main reasons this has worked so well for me. The other ladies totally understand the demands of family life, and how changing our food choices and lifestyle makes of a happier and healthier house. For me the community is like family and a part of my life now.
What a great story! We’re so pleased Siobhan and Vanessa found each other through The Healthy Mummy and are supporting each other through their weight loss journeys!
