Tash Horrocks has completely turned her life around since joining The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.

Here is her story.

Joining The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges

Tash had seen her weight snowball while suffering Post Natal Depression following the birth of her son.

She says “I signed up to The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in October 2016 after seeing it all over Facebook and getting into a massive rut after being diagnosed with Postpartum Depression and stacking on a massive 17 kilograms in a matter of months after my son was born.

My twin sister signed up to the challenge too, which also inspired me to do so.”

Making simple changes to start

Without wanting to overwhelm herself Tash started off by making small changes to her diet.

She says “I started out with small changes – making The Healthy Mummy snacks first as snacks were often my biggest downfall”.

Then she started making healthy family dinner’s from the Challenge meal plan and then adding Healthy Mummy Smoothies for convenience.

Tash says “I have never looked back!

As The Healthy Mummy was a complete lifestyle change, I decided making small steps was the way to go, so I didn’t give up and chuck in the towel from it all being too overwhelming. An excuse I had used in the past by setting myself up for failure and creating unrealistic goals.

I remember the very first snack I tried was The Peanut Bubble Crunch and fell in love with it straight away”. Get the Peanut Bubble Crunch recipe

“Healthy doesn’t mean boring or bland”

Tash says “I discovered healthy didn’t have to be boring and bland at all.

It was all exciting and new!

Like this Roasted Pumpkin & Fetta Gnocchi available to Challenge members!  Do yourselves a favour and try it. It’s AH-mazing!!! Super easy to make too! Plus The Husband and Mr two love it.

“I have now been using all the products and recipes for over two years and my whole life has changed for the better.

The Healthy Mummy isn’t just another diet. You won’t stack all of your weight back on because it’s teaches you how to use alternatives and stay on track. (I am the first to admit, I slip up but I get back on the wagon) which has given me the ability to continue to succeed!”.

Weight Loss Results – 21kgs

Tash has lost 21kg and gone from a size 20/22 to a size 14/16

She says “I am now fully addicted. I owe my success to The Healthy Mummy.

I am two-thirds of the way through my journey having lost a total of 21 kilograms.

My goal is for this time next year is to hit 30kg loss. Only 9 more to go!

This journey is not a sprint it’s a marathon but I guarantee you it’s worth the wait”.
