Weight Loss

“The Healthy Mummy has completely changed my world,” says Mum who lost 8.3st

Cicily Goodwin’s life changed forever four years ago when she embarked on a weight loss journey that saw her lose a whopping 8.3st in 18 months. Since then, she has overcome personal challenges that led to some weight creep back, but with help from her Healthy Mummy lifestyle and experience, she was able to get back on track and has maintained her initial weight loss since. She’s now living her healthiest and happiest life.

“The Healthy Mummy has bought me so much quality of life. It has helped me to gain a freedom in myself that I’ve never felt before. I am genuinely happy in myself, confident in my body, and live a healthy life.”

Cicily is now starring in the Healthy Mummy’s Brand New Real Mum’s Workouts in The Healthy Mummy App, inspiring and helping other mums reach their weight loss goals.

Cicily’s Incredible Weight Loss

Mum of two Cicily started her journey with The Healthy Mummy in July 2016. In the first few months, she lost 3.1st by using The Healthy Mummy Smoothies twice a day and making the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meals. She lost another 5.5st over the next year.

Cicily says “I started the year at 17st and got to 12st. The lifetime goal I’ve dreamed of my whole life. “

Cicily admits that her when she started her journey it was all about weight loss but after living a healthy lifestyle it became a lot more about happiness.

“The Healthy Mummy has given me so much happiness, confidence and self-love. I have so much more energy and for the first time in my life feel truly happy in myself.”

Maintaining the weight loss

Whilst losing a large amount of weight is one part of the story, maintaining that weight loss is another.

Cicily shares, “Maintaining weight loss is a whole different ball game because the natural response to weight loss is weight gain. So I won’t deny I’ve fluctuated a few lbs. Trolls would say to me ‘you’ll just gain it all back again and then some in a year’  but an amazing thing about The Healthy Mummy is that you are not restricted to 1200 calories, I ate over 2000 calories a day to lose this weight.”

Dealing with Life’s Challenges

As we all know, life gets in the way with unexpected challenges.  For Cicily, this year brought some personal issues that effected her lifestyle, weight and how she felt about herself.

She shares, “After going through a divorce this year and gaining some weight back, I was feeling pretty terrible in myself. But with persistence and consistency, I’ve managed to lose again what I gained back. I feel a huge sense of body love and confidence within myself.”

“So I’m now a single mum, juggling work, university and kids, but I always make time for a walk on the beach to keep active.”

Cicily has dropped 53kg and gone down 6 dress sizes in 15 months!

The Healthy Mummy has bought me so much quality of life. I’ve pushed myself beyond comfort and done things I’ve never dreamed of. I can hike up mountains, run around playing with my kids. My life is amazing and I’m so incredibly happy in myself now.”

Cicily’s Tips to Stay Motivated

Cicily even has a great tip to stay motivated when you don’t always feel like exercising.

“Getting dressed in my favourite activewear.  Also choosing a fun style of exercise like paddle boarding or beach walking.”

“Find something you love. You still burn calories walking! Grab your bestie and go for a walk, you get to move your body. These workouts with Wendy are a great way to get your body moving.”
