The number on the scales is not always the best way to measure our weight loss success! In fact, we can be making BIG CHANGES, with very little number change! But fear not – your hard work is PAYING OFF! Just ask this incredible mum, Clare!

My Weight Loss Is Health Driven, I Want To Be Able To Keep Up With My Kids

The scales don’t always matter! This mum says she’s fitter and stronger than ever

Clare says, “My weight loss is health driven, I want to be able to keep up with my kids.”

“I have never been one to be unhappy with my body image. Big or small. I was happy in the first photo; but 19 kilos* lighter, I am happier because I am fitter and stronger. I have energy that I never had before. I am nowhere near finished, but I will not quit because I love how being healthy makes me feel.”

Don’t Lose Heart

Clare has become part of our awesome Healthy Mummy Community, where she shares her journey to inspire and motivate other mums just like her.

Clare says, “Ladies no matter how quickly or slowly the scales moves, don’t lose heart. It has taken me 14 months to lose 19 kilos*. I have had weeks where I lost nothing, weeks where I did everything right and still gained.”

“While a loss on the scales is great, it’s not as great as the amazing feeling that comes with being healthy and even if those scales don’t move as fast as you like. The changes you are making are going to make the rest of your life amazing.”


“Take lots of photos and measure measure measure. The scales are not your friend. DON’T STOP, NEVER QUIT.”

Way to go Clare!
