FLABBY ARMS no more! Mum shares how to achieve strong, shapely guns

Share this article

Flabby arms, bingo wings, whatever you choose to call them are the bane of many women’s lives. And for mum Amy Thomson, hers were no different.

Amy hated her arms so much that she spent many years keeping them covered up. But today she stands tall and proud of her shapely new guns.

She shares how she completely transformed her body including her arms and how you can do it too. Prepare to be INSPIRED!


“I felt extremely uncomfortable with my upper arms”

Amy says “One of the most sensitive areas I had was my upper arms.

I would hide away and feel extremely uncomfortable whenever I wore a short sleeve shirt as I would get a roll under my arm.

It was embarrassing!”.

Starting her Healthy Mummy journey

Wanting to improve her health and weight Amy signed up to The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.

In addition to becoming healthy and strong, Amy was determined to improve her arms.

She says, “Over the past 17 months with The Healthy Mummy, I have really focused on changing my arms, determined to never feel embarrassed about them again.

“Although I still have a bit of loose skin, I have made a huge transformation!”

Wow, you certainly have Amy!


How has Amy achieved her amazing arm definition?

Amy spends around 10 minutes a day doing arm exercises – sometimes less and sometimes more, depending on how busy her day is.  

She says, “I do boxing, tricep dips, push ups, weights, bicep curls, arm circles (with weights), planking, and every night I do an arm workout to music.

“Basically I just keep them up and moving.  It’s hard to explain the actual movements but things like arm circles really help.

“I try to do some kind exercise each day, even if it’s just 10 tricep dips off the side of my bed before I sleep”.

“I also use the Healthy Mummy Body Sculpting Lotion which has helped with loose skin”. Buy Sculpting Lotion.

Here are Amy’s results after just 3 months using the Body Sculpting Lotion.


It is not just Amy’s arms that have been changing since she embraced her Healthy Mummy lifestyle by following the meal plans and exercises on the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App.

Her overall body has changed dramatically too.

Weight loss results – 40.3kg


She says “40.3 kilos lost and never to return (down from120 kilos to 79.7kgs)

And 117cms GONE!

“I can’t wait for the NEW Healthy Mummy ‘Get Strong’ Program to really focus on muscle tone.

“Time to tone up and get even stronger. I have always said, I want to be STRONG not SKINNY!”.

Wow! The Healthy Mummy team think Amy is absolutely smashing it and we couldn’t be happier for her.  Talk about an AMAZING transformation. We love that Amy’s focus is on being STRONG! What an INSPIRATION! Well done Amy!

Lauren has lost over 46kg

Jo Has Lost 41kgs

Jo says,“There is 12 months between these pictures (above). I have lost over 41kgs* since starting The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges in April 2016. 

“I love my daily Healthy Mummy smoothie and exercising with my two very active boys aged 2 & 3 years. I’m forever grateful to The Healthy Mummy for giving me a life that is a healthy one and a sustainable one too!!”

Renee has lost 46kg

This beautiful and hard working lady has lost an amazing 46kgs using the The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and Smoothies.

Renee says, “At times I feel as though progress is slow. But in hindsight, 17 months is such a short amount of time in the grand scheme of things, considering that I lived every single day as an obese young woman for well over a decade.”

“The Healthy Mummy is just a part of my everyday life, I live and breathe it every minute of the day.

“This weight loss journey has been so much more than me losing 46kgs*. The Healthy Mummy has given me the ability to make better choices for myself and my 7 year old son.”


Elle has lost 20kg

“I have lost 25kg in just over a year following the Healthy Mummy lifestyle, but so much for me has changed, much more than just my weight.

“From the age of 11, I always wanted long skinny legs – just like the models I saw on Fashion TV. I always HATED my chunky thighs. As I’ve lost weight and gained more confidence I now have learnt to embrace my legs. They are strong and I work them hard to look toned.

“I have accepted I will never have gorgeous long skinny legs. But I will try to look the best I possibly can without compromising my health. Loving your body and nurturing it, finding your strengths is a BIG thing.”


Sascha lost 30kg

Sascha says, “Over 30kg gone from using The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and maintaining it couldn’t be more enjoyable.”


Cicily has lost 56kgs

Cicily says, Now I’m feeling so happy in myself, full of energy, confidence is back and excelling. 

“I’m just so darn ME! I feel like I can finally be myself, like I was being held back and didn’t even realise it! Healthy Mummy you are my rock! Trust in the plans. They’ve changed my life forever!”
