Virginia has lost 27 kilos following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and drinking The Healthy Mummy smoothies since joining last year. Her goal for August is to get herself back on track after a vacation.

“I’m absolutely over the moon to have been chosen to be one of your August Motivating Mums! I’ve lost 27kg in total, 14kg with Healthy Mummy, since I joined last year! I love everything about this program and the support you get,” she says.

“My goal for August is to get myself back on track after the last 3-4 weeks of my holidays. I’ve gained a little bit and become a bit lazy with my exercise, water and nutrition. I want to get back to feeling amazing because I’m fuelling my body properly, and doing my daily exercises to build my strength and fitness. I plan to drink 2-3 litres of water a day.”

We’re sure you’ll smash it, Virginia!

Sam has recently been diagnosed with PCOS and underwent surgery to have a cyst removed. But she says she’s feeling inspired this month to get her health back on track.

“This is my second time following the Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge after the birth of one of my children and I absolutely swear by it,” she says.

“I have lost over 20kg in total and have gone from a size 18 to a size 12. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and in July underwent surgery to cut out a cyst that was growing in my ovary, so I was unable to exercise much last month. But have I let this derail me? Hell no!!!!

“This month I plan to continue on working on toning my body. Watch out August, I’m coming for you!”

We can’t wait to see the results, Sam. We’re glad you’re feeling better now!

Nikki has lost 25 kilos in eight months following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and drinking The Healthy Mummy smoothies, and she says her lifestyle change has rubbed off on her whole family.

“We are now saving money  because I don’t waste food now and I only shop for what I need. Before The Healthy Mummy I was unhappy and tired all the time. 

“My goals for August are to meal plan and prep every week, to push myself even further and fit into a size 8 pair of jeans. It’s been a long time since I have.”

You can do it, Nikki!
