Janette Turner has lost her pregnancy weight TWICE with the 28 Weight Loss Challenge and the The Healthy Mummy app!
In fact, she was able to lose 2.5 stone in just six months after giving birth and also reduce the symptoms of her endometriosis pain.
Mum loses 2.5 stone in just six months after giving birth through The Healthy Mummy
The 36-year-old Loughborough-based mum reveals she first saw a Facebook ad for The Healthy Mummy on her 34th birthday.
“I’d had a bad day in terms of hating all the photos of my from the day and thought what have I got to lose?!” says the mum-of-three.
“The first time round I lost just over 2 stone in around 9 months, I put most of that back on in pregnancy but was within the healthy weight gain for my starting weight. Second time round I have lost a little more, currently at 2.5 stone in 6 months.
“That’s the equivalent of my three year old!”
Thankfully, Janette can see some amazing health benefits now she is on her healthy lifestyle journey.
“My hair and skin is less greasy, I used to get eczema which was triggered by caffeine and sugar intake which has gone,” she says. “I have endometriosis which can have really painful flare ups but these are now few and far between.”
What’s more, Janette signed up to be a lifetime member of 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge after about three months so she had access to all the meal plans throughout her pregnancy.
“I didn’t count calories but stuck to my three meals and three snacks a day. Either Healthy Mummy recipes or Healthy choices like fruit and nuts for snacks or pretzels and dark choc,” she says.
“I’ve always got a stash of the smoothies and find them super easy to whip up when I’m short on time. I continued to have a couple of smoothies a week in my pregnancy and have been really enjoyed the new Tummy Smoothie since it was launched this year.”

Janette’s tips for success
What advice do you have for others trying to lose weight after birth?
“Try to focus on your food primarily, making sure you eat at regular times and that you are actually eating enough.
“Ensure you get your extra if you are breastfeeding, you really will need them. Make sure you listen to your body, I always allowed a little extra if baby was cluster feeding or not sleeping well as looking after yourself is so important when you have little ones to look after.”
What about mums trying to stay healthy while pregnant?
“Sometimes you just have to eat what doesn’t make you nauseous. But you can still make a healthy choice in the foods that you can eat. I had low iron so I started chucking spinach and greens into everything.
“Gentle exercise will boost your mood and energy levels and keeping up your fluids.”
