Summer is just around the corner and beach season is nearly here. Here at Healthy Mummy H.Q, we certainly cannot wait to laze around on the sand and soak up the sun (with our 30+ SPF on of course).
In the meantime, we are sticking to our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Meal Plan, refining our weight loss goals and moving our booties…after all we are determined to rock our swimsuits with MAJOR confidence this year. And it seems we are not the only ones.
Below are 10 other healthy mummy’s working hard to HIT their weight loss goals by Summer. Thankfully, between the 10 of them, they are sharing 30 ways they PLAN to achieve their goals (which you may be inspired to adopt yourself).
30 ways these mums plan to hit their weight loss goals by SUMMER
Healthy Mummy Eleanor has lost an incredible 40+ kilograms with following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. What’s more, the Challenge has helped Eleanor find ways to prepare and make healthy, family-friendly meals for a brood of 6 on an incredibly tight budget.
You can check out HOW and WHAT this mum makes for her family of six with a week’s budget of $100 here.
Before Summer is here, Eleanor is on a mission to lose 14 kilograms. Eleanor says the below points are how SHE intends to do so:
- Make realistic and daily goals to break down overall, bigger goals. For example, today I will drink x amount of water, today I will perform x amount of squats, this week I will aim to lose 1 kilogram.
- Take advantage of The Healthy Mummy Support Groups and connect with other women on a similar mission. I will also use my Challenge App to log my daily food intake, keep track of my fitness activity and water intake to help me keep on track.
- I will use clothing to keep me focussed.
Annette is 30 years old and a mum to 3 children. She discovered The Healthy Mummy a couple of months after the birth of her second child.
Annette had her youngest bub earlier this year via caesarian and since then lost 9+ kilograms. Before summer arrives, Annette hopes to get back into the ’70’s’ range on the scale. Here’s how SHE plans to hit that goal:
- Meal plan and meal prep every single week until summer is here.
- Make an effort to schedule in my exercise.
- Use The Healthy Mummy Support Group for daily motivation and inspiration.
Jessica May Magill
Jessica recently had a beautiful little baby. Prior to giving birth to her youngest bub, Jessica lost an incredible 20+ kilograms on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Again, Jessica is another mum who has been able to lose weight and save BIG bucks while sticking to the Challenge Meal Plan. Jessica says, “My groceries are $120-$150 a week (including nappies and wipes for my other 2 kids).” Which is absolutely amazing.
Jessica plans to take advantage of the next couple of months and lose 10 kilograms by swimsuit seasons. She is on a mission to:
- Meal plan and meal prep as much as possible. I love having healthy options on hand and ready to go.
- Squeeze in exercise everywhere and anywhere. I want to be able to exercise at least 3 times a week.
- Set reminders on my phone to drink more water.
In just 17 months, Clare has lost an impressive 22 kilos, 3 dress sizes and over 70cm from her body. And it’s down to following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies – amazing!

In just 12 months, Natasha lost an incredible 30 kilograms.
Natasha says, “I never thought I could accomplish this. I tried everything under the sun before finding The Healthy Mummy and would give up 3 months later, and just think it was way too difficult, there was no hope for me.”
However, before Summer is here Natasha would love to lose another 10 kilograms. Here’s how she plans to hit her goal weight:
- Use 30 minutes of my day, everyday, to get in exercise.
- Sunday Meal Prep is a must. It helps me stick to my meal plan for the entire week.
- Log in my water daily on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App to make sure I stick to my water goal.

Despite suffering from PCOS most of her life, Libby credits the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges for helping her lose 14 + kilograms and improving her overall sense of well being.
“Nothing I had tried previously worked for me. Being able to customise the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Meal Plan has meant that I can change the program to suit me, my family, our preferences, our budget and my health needs.”
- Ensure my meal plan and prepared food gives me the nutrients I need so I stay fuller for longer and don’t overeat.
- Use visual reminders at home to keep me on track to avoid mindless snacking.
- Manage my time better in order to resume “no excuses” exercise so I reach my goals.
