This is Rebecca’s story

Rebecca says she started with The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge just over a year ago. She had been contemplating taking the journey and was inspired by everyone’s results in the community.

She says she was “sitting on the fence for a couple of months, but I am so glad I did it!”

“I couldn’t wait to get onto the smoothies!”

Rebecca says she has lost 26kg and 3-4 dress sizes, thanks to the smoothies and The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.  She says she couldn’t wait to get into them!

“It’s easy to get into the right mindset with The Healthy Mummy”

Rebecca says she has learnt so much about what her body is really capable of when she had the right mindset. “I honestly thought I’d never get this far, but it is so easy with all the delicious recipes and the wonderful support from this community.”

“Focusing on my physical health has also helped my mental health, I was suicidal with Post Natal Depression after having my second child, and while anxiety can still be an uphill battle I’m stronger and happier than ever.”

Setting summer goals

Rebecca has set herself three summer goals:

1. Keep toning the booty! “I’ll achieve this by focusing on lower body exercises from the workouts on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app, and SQUAT SQUAT SQUAT!”
2. Practise mindfulness and meditation for stress management. “I can achieve this by taking some time out for myself every day to use the Mind, Body & Breath meditations from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.”
3. Stop emotional eating! “This is a struggle for me, so I’ll try and distract myself whenever I want to nibble, like make a cup of tea.”

Favourite things about the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

Rebecca’s explains her three favourite things about the 28 Weight Loss Challenge

1. The recipe hub on the app! “This is an awesome tool with so many delicious recipes to choose from if I have something to use in the fridge I can easily find a way to use it.”
2. The exercise videos. “I love the variety of exercises and duration, whether I have four mins or 30mins there’s never an excuse not to break a sweat!”
3. The wonderful community. “All the other mums are so helpful and inspiring, whenever I need some advice or a motivation boost the support is always there!”

Staying on track during summer

Rebecca’s five tips on staying on track this summer

1. Keep a food and exercise diary. “I use the fabulous Healthy Mummy diary to track my exercise and water intake for the day.”
2. Don’t forget how far you’ve come! “Check out your old progress photos as a reminder, this is a great motivation booster.”
3. Check in with The Healthy Mummy community! “This lovely group of mums is going through the same thing you are and we all keep each motivated and accountable.”
4. Keep your meal plan interesting. “It’s easy to get in a rut with food and get bored so I like to try at least one new recipe a week. There are always new recipes coming into the recipe hub each month.”
5. Have a workout buddy! “Exercising is way more fun and easy when you’re doing it with a friend. Find a boxing class or a park run together.”
