3 & 1/2 Stone GONE in 26 weeks!

Julie Ju, 43 from Preston, Lancashire, is a mum of three grown children, 22, 24 and 21. She has been following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since 31st July 2019 and so far has lost 3 & 1/2 stone.

Julie shares, “It’s taken roughly 26 weeks to achieve, I’ve not really noticed much physical difference as I have arthritis in both knees and osteoarthritis, also I’ve got fibromyalgia, so my whole body is still painful.

Mentally it’s made me a lot healthier, I don’t reach for a quick fix anymore, I make sure I have Healthy Mummy snacks prepared in the fridge or freezer, snacking was my downfall.

Julie’s favourite Healthy Mummy recipes and Smoothies

“I have a Healthy Mummy Smoothie every day. My favourite smoothies are Sneaky snickers and Paddle pop.  My favourite Healthy Mummy snacks are Raspberry muffins and a Skinny latte with almonds.”

Julie’s tips for other mums

  • Plan ahead so you know exactly what menu you’re using.
  • Prepare snacks, I always make sure I have sweet and savoury in the freezer, chocolate cravings still do appear.
  • Keep up your water intake, it’s so important, your skin will thank you as well as your body.

I loved the belly and booty blaster we’ve just done, this was my favourite challenge so far. I follow the workout plans daily on the challenges, with an added few arm exercises.

It’s so easy to use and you can sync your Fitbit to it too, there are many workouts to choose from to suit your needs.”

The Healthy Mummy Community

Julie adds, “The Healthy Mummy community is amazing, they offer so much encouragement, support and advice, if your feeling down, they pick you up, they spur you on, the admin and other mummies are like a family.

“I still have a way to go on my journey, to be my ideal weight, but The Healthy Mummy has changed my relationship with food and exercise, and I’m looking forward to continuing my journey.” xx
