Top tips:

  1. Use a motivational board.
  2. I also have a white board with daily goals on it that I tick off each day. This includes drinking two litres of water, working out, eat my daily recommended calories, self care, and having a healthy mummy meal, smoothie or protein shake.
  3. If you feel like giving up think about your WHY, then when you have your why write it down so you can visualise it every day. For example my WHY is to feel happy, fit and strong, to be a good role model for my daughter and be able to have energy to play with her.

Joann Johns, 52, mum-of-three from NSW

TIPS from the mums who smashed the 12 Week Challenge

Weight loss in last 12 Week Challenge: 8.8kg
  1. Don’t weigh yourself anymore than once a week, and make sure you take measurements. The measurements are where you will see the difference.
  2. Try to get as much support as you can. Family, close friends or the amazing ladies doing the 12 Week Challenge with you. They will help keep you on track and will be there to support you if and when you need it. I was lucky and had my daughter doing the Challenge with me and it really made a difference. Even hubby joined in! It’s a healthy lifestyle the whole family can enjoy.
  3. Don’t forget your pledge! Place it somewhere where you can see it at all times, and keep reading and reminding yourself of your goals.
