July’s Motivating Mum’s

1. Clare


Clare has lost 21 kilos using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and Healthy Mummy smoothies since April 2016 aims to lose 2 kilos this month.

Clare says, “My July goals are to stay focused on eating well. More savoury less sweet and to incorporate more veggies. To keep up my boxing class as well as my walking, weights and challenge exercises. I want to work on my core strength as well.”

“I plan on staying on track by being prepared especially food wise. I also book my boxing classes in advance so much harder to back out of. Will start my visual food diary again to keep myself accountable.” 

We’re sure you’ll smash it Clare!

2. Laura

michelle knight

This will be Michelle’s third 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and so far she’s lost 13.5kgs and gone from a size 18-20 to a size 14.

Michelle says, “I love helping out those that are struggling, a pack of Super Greens in a kid’s school bag for their mumma to say thank you for her help, a week’s worth of frozen prep meals to a friend who is struggling to eat right. A kind word and yes I’m that one that says tag me when you are doing your exercises and I’ll do them with you. Kinda makes some feel less like they are doing it on their own.”

If only everyone has a friend like you Michelle! You go girl!

17. Renée

renee harrison

To date, Renée has lost 47kg using the Healthy Mummy smoothies and the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges.

Renée says, “My goals for July is to tone! I originally had a goal weight of 80kg, I have now surpassed that goal by 11kg!”

“Throughout my journey I have learnt that the numbers on those scales never reflected how I felt. I gauged my success on how I felt in my own skin, my mood, my energy levels and only ever weighing myself (out of curiosity) when someone would comment “Have you lost more weight?””

Incredible achievements Renée, more confidence and happiness is coming your way!
