Jodie Lee’s Healthy Mummy journey

Before The Healthy Mummy Jodie Lee says that there is no way she would have I would have had the courage to go out like this. She says she remembers when the before photos were taken, she says she was at a wedding and had so many layers on underneath, “it was uncomfortable and hot!” She says that is pretty much how she spent the warm weather “layered up and sweating.”

“Not anymore,” says Jodie Lee, “I have loose skin, I have plenty of stretch marks thanks to three kids, including a set of twins, and I’m 35. But goddamn can I rock it now!”

No more missed meals

Jodie says she doesn’t miss any more breakfasts and snacks. “I’ve found eating to be absolutely crucial in making sure I don’t binge later in the day and that’s super important in weight loss and maintaining.”
“Who would have thought you actually have to *eat* to lose weight?!?!?” she says. “Before The Healthy Mummy, I thought the way to drop kilos was to starve yourself. No way! I’ve been with The Healthy Mummy for four years and I have never ever gone hungry to get results.”

Jodie Lee says she wouldn’t have done as well as she has without the ease and nutrition in the Healthy Mummy smoothies!

Being a mum

Jodie is 36 years of age, 168cms tall and has a 15-year-old daughter and 7-year-old twin boys.

She says that she is not at her smallest, but that is ok with her. She says that her achievements are more than enough for her now.

“Balancing shift work, three kids and some semblance of me-time on my own is HARD WORK and yep, I’ve sacrificed exercise for sleep on most occasions. But when that happens, I make sure my nutrition is as good as I can get it thanks to what I’ve learned from The Healthy Mummy.”

Thank you Jodie Lee for embarking on your journey with The Healthy Mummy.  Well done on your amazing achievements!
