This amazing mum loses 20kg and discovers how to enjoy time with her kids again

Hayley Campbell never expected to lose 20kg* on the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and was amazed not only by the weight loss but by the rewards that came with it.

The result of her kids having their slimmer, fitter mum engaging in active games like chase and football with them for the first time has brought her ‘happy’ back.

Hayley says, “The most valuable thing about my weight loss is that running and playing with my kids is now easy. Hearing them laugh while we play is BEAUTIFUL and being active is now FUN!”  hayley campbell plays ball with kids after losing 20kgs

Hayley is not just a mum who has lost a significant amount of weight, she has also transformed herself both mentally and physically.  She no longer lacks energy and suffers mood swings. Hayley now leads an active lifestyle and has discovered a new joy in sharing this with her children.

Here is Hayley’s story:

“My name is Hayley Campbell. I am a 31 year old mum to a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. After my son was born my weight ballooned to 140kg. Unhappy with the way I looked, I started incorporating Healthy Mummy Smoothies into my diet and lots of walking. I managed to lose 24kg in 12 months.

Then 10 months after having my second child I realised my weight had crept back up to nearly 130kg again. That’s when I decided to commit to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Being active is something I always wished I could be, but just didn’t think I was capable of.

I have started running for the first time in my life and now choose exercise over sitting on the couch.

I no longer look at food as a source of comfort but as a source of fuel.

My moods so much more stable now that I have a better diet and regular exercise and I have a more positive outlook on life. I am fitter, healthier and stronger than ever before – even my teen years!

“I have lost 20kg in the past 12 months going from 129.8kg – 109.8kg.”

The best part is that my family follow my healthy eating and active lifestyle too.

Being able to model healthy living for my kids and see them reflect this lifestyle is incredibly rewarding. I can now run and play with my kids. And enjoy their laughter and excitement when I play chase and football with them. I have never been happier!

It’s a beautiful feeling to see their laughter and joy now that I am now an ‘active mummy’.

One of my favourite things about the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is that the meals are sensible. There is no cutting food groups and the recipes are easy and delicious – even chef hubby thinks so!”.

We would like to congratulate Hayley on being such a positive role model for her young family and wish her a lifetime of joy and laughter ahead.
