How losing 3 dress sizes has helped me become a better role model to my daughter
Anna is a 30 year old mum-of-one from Suffolk.
Anna joined #TeamHealthyMummy (and become a member of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge) following the Healthy Mummy UK launch in late 2017.
“I joined up after some of my Australian friends told me about the Healthy Mummy. I initially signed up before the UK launch and was in the Australian Facebook Support Group. However, due to finances, had to leave.
“Thankfully I managed to get a good deal when it launched in the U.K. so I signed back up!”
Anna says she was determined to tackle her health and fitness for HERSELF as well as her family.
“I’m doing this for myself and my family. I want to set a good example for my daughter and be able to run around with her. Also my husband is a runner and runs ultra marathons so I want to be able to catch up with him one day”, she adds.
Weight loss wins
Fast forward to July 2018, and Anna has lost 3 dress sizes (going from a size 20 to a size 14-16) and feels ‘healthier’ and ‘fitter’ than ever before.
“In May 2018, I even walked up a gorge in France which was steep and about 7 miles round trip – I loved it! It’s something I would never have volunteered to do before!”

3 tips to women thinking about joining the Challenge
“I would totally recommend the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to anyone (and have done so already)!
“It’s fantastic it’s totally holistic in that it covers the whole family and all aspects of health and fitness“, says Anna.
3 tips Anna has for women starting the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge include:
- Be kind to your self (this is a lifestyle change not a fad diet – take it at your own pace).
- Make use of the exercise videos – they are short and easy to fit in around a busy family life.
- When first starting out don’t over complicate your meal plan. Stick to 2/3 meals an 2/3 snacks so you minimise the cooking and prep time while you get used to new recipes.
