50kgs* down and Renée is looking fantastic! But this mum is proof that you can become healthier and happier and you don’t just have to be in the triple digits and be unhappy. Read her inspiring weight loss story here from using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges!


116kgs to 66kgs*, Renée says “You don’t have to live in triple digits & just accept it”

Renée says, “Girls, I want to show you living and breathing proof that you DON’T have to live in triple digits and just accept it.”

“This WAS me, the whole 116kg of me. I can’t tell you how or when I let myself get like this. I guess it was a perpetuating depressing downward spiral. I was in a relationship that caused me a lot of unhappiness. I lost respect for myself, I gave up and as the months and years rolled on, this was the end result.”

“I can, however, tell you how my transformation began. It was the day I separated from my husband. I was a single parent raising a 5 year old son. What would happen to him if something happened to me? Something I could have prevented?

I didn’t want him to see me unhappy about myself, I didn’t want him to see his Mum laze on the couch watching TV eating anything and everything in sight because it ‘made me feel better’. That’s the thing, it didn’t make me feel better, it made me feel worse!”

“I can’t believe I let myself get that way and think it was okay. I think it had more to do with the fact that I failed soooooooooo many times in the past with other ‘weight loss programs’, pills and ‘weight loss shakes’ and I thought it was all too hard. I had the similar mindset as many of you do who are reading this right now, I was so focused on ‘the end’ – ‘I need to lose 30kg, 40kg, 50kg’ instead of ‘Let’s go for a walk today,’ ‘Let’s have a 28 Day challenge meal for dinner instead of Maccas,’ ‘Today I’m going to walk an extra kilometre’.”

“None of us got like this overnight, so we shouldn’t expect to be champion athletes when we wake up one morning. It’s all about the journey – reprogramming your brain, leaving old bad habits in the past, learning more about your body and how nutrition plays a big role in weight loss, mood, hormones etc. It’s all about hard work – what you put in you get out, persistence – you didn’t fail it was just a trial run and we can start again tomorrow.

“Goals – set them, smash them and be damn proud! Self belief – do this for yourself, do this for your family, do this for your health, do this for the little eyes watching you and do this for all the people who thought you couldn’t. The best view comes from the hardest climb.

I have lost 50kg from following the 28 Day Challenges. They have been so easy to follow, are family friendly and without them I couldn’t have lost the 50kg. Give it a try today – I promise you won’t regret it”

Renée you should be so proud of yourself, you really are an inspiration!
