Chelsea Dickson has lost over 60kgs with The Healthy Mummy in just 14 months and she’s been maintaining her weight for 16 months using The Healthy Mummy app!
“I started my journey with a thyroid issue which has been resolved through weight loss and eating healthier over time,” she says.
“The benefits of signing up to The Healthy Mummy are endless, I have gone from a couch mum to a beach mum, from not ever wanting to do anything because I just didn’t have the energy to now being spontaneous taking family trips, but most of all I’m happy within my own skin.”
How Chelsea lost 60kg and what she does when the scales don’t move
The mum-of-four admits that the pandemic did throw her off course for a bit but she managed to stay on track.
“I live in Queensland so it hasn’t been as bad for me as others but keeping things organised prepared has been helpful when things were closed or limited in shops as it meant I didn’t need anything,” she says.
Chelsea’s top tips for success are:
- Small sustainable changes, I’m all about slowly converting & making it your new normal.
- Don’t punish yourself for any of the choices we make, own it reset & move forward…
- Find an exercise you love an exercise you enjoy to make it a lifelong choice..
- Goals always having goals in place big goals with smart goals to get you to the bigger goal at the end…
What Chelsea does when the scales stop moving
Recalculate your BMR as you lose weight, as you may not be eating enough
Look at your clothes not the scales
Set goals and stick to them and keep moving
Keep it simple
“When you feel like giving up or things are too hard my advice is strip it back keep it simple don’t overcomplicate things find the triggers that are making you feel this way, just always do your best some days are easier than others but work on making it apart of your normal.”
“For me when the scales didn’t move I was absolutely shattered I had put in 110% I needed to work out why, so I recalculated my BMR and shifted my focus to clothing (measurements) rather than only using scales but still trusting the process knowing that by following The Healthy Mummy the scales would start moving again,” she says.
