Her newfound confidence means that even when she slips up from time to time (like at Christmas) she doesn’t let it derail her hard work. She quickly gets back to her healthy lifestyle.

Amy says “They’re all six and under and they know that I’m different. They look back at old photos of me when I was heaps bigger and inactive and they don’t even know that it’s me.
They love that I’m able to go down on the slide at the playground with them and I don’t have to worry about that now.”

Chloe and her husband separated this year, but she has managed to continue on her weight loss journey by using all the tools she has learnt from The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to avoid emotional eating.
“I’m not sure how much more I want to lose until I reach my goal. I don’t want to put an exact number on it. My goal is to be fit, healthy and 100 per cent comfortable in my own skin,” Chloe explains.

Prior to signing up to the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and adopting a Healthy Mummy lifestyle, Dani says “I was the one always taking the photos. I literally hid from the camera.
I hated what it showed me. I now regret that for so many reasons but mainly because I was not captured in those memories. I know I was there… but when I look back through photos I am absent. It’s kinda sad”.
It also meant that she had limited photos in which to compare how far she has come in her weight loss journey.
Her important message to other mums “take those photos peeps!”.
