Weight Loss

These mums lost 85 pounds combined and say their lives have changed forever

We love to celebrate the amazing weight loss achievements of our lovely Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge mums and these mums results are well worth celebrating!

Sarah Varney-Wiseman has lost more than 42 lbs

Sarah says, “Ok apologies for the essay but I’ve had a bit of an epiphany. So last week, I ended up eating out five times (bad planning and unfortunate coincidences).”

“Before the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge knowing I was eating out in the evening would usually make me blow out the entire day. Or if I went out for lunch, I would have spent the rest of the day eating junk because I thought I had blown it.”

“And then one day would spiral into two or three or a week, and before I knew it, the wagon was entirely lost.”

“However, something has happened to my brain after three and a half months of The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.”

“For the first time in my life, I just automatically choose the healthy option. And believe me, when you are dairy and egg free, there aren’t usually many options at all when you eat out.”

“Of my five meals out, two I had soup, two I had salad and the last (and most limited pub menu) I had ham and chips with salad and left half of the chips. I have never ordered a salad in my life and yet I really enjoyed both! I didn’t “blow” any day, I didn’t go home and binge, I didn’t feel like I was missing out and I didn’t feel guilty.”

“I have literally never had a normal relationship with food, I’ve always been an all or nothing person and I’m just stunned that I seem to be “cured”. I don’t live to eat any more!”

“Another example is this week, I’ve had a very poorly baby who has let me sleep even less than usual. On Tuesday night, I had about an hour of sleep, got up and went to work, ran a load of errands, generally had a full on day and I didn’t revert back to sugar to sustain me through the day.”

“The old me would have started on the biscuits at 8am and just ridden the sugar rollercoaster until I crashed hard and went to bed.”

“So yes I’ve lost more than 3 stone with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in a very short space of time. However, the biggest change that I am most grateful for is in my head!”

Kaire Konton-Smith’s life has changed for the better

Kaire says, “Almost a year with the Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, but it’s not about what I’ve lost – it’s all about what I have gained!”

  • “confidence” 
  • “knowledge of fuelling my body properly”
  • “energy”
  • “positive mindset”
  • “better role model”
  • “new healthy relationship with food”
  • “And it’s not just me that’s been affected – my whole family is getting more adventurous with food, they try new meals and get involved with cooking as well.”

“The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has changed my life for the better.”

Alyson Hackett has lost 5 lbs


Alyson says, “I’ve dug out my measurements from last year mixed with a pic from our holiday the same time.”
“Although I felt pretty good on holiday I know this was purely down to me being at pre-pregnancy weight, at this point I focused solely on the scales.”
“However, since joining The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, I know the scales aren’t everything and how you feel and measurements are more important.
Based on my recent measurements I’m smaller than last year but weigh the same.”
“The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has helped me get to where I am today and I’m looking forward to seeing where the next few months take me, I say months as I realise this isn’t going to be a quick process!”

“Thanks to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for:”

  • “I’m no longer an emotional eater”
  • “I’m no longer focusing on the scales”
  • “I’ve lost 1st 5lbs in less than 3 months”
  • “I’ve gained knowledge about healthy eating and portion control”
  • “I’m a dress size smaller, well mostly but maybe an awkward size 11 now” 
  • “I’m loving the smoothies, so many recipes”
  • “The support group is amazing”
  • “I no longer skip meals”

Hazel Cooke is finally happy and confident with her body


Hazel says, “If you had told me seven months ago that I’d be buying a belly skimming tassel size 10 top I think I would have literally laughed in your face!”

“I hadn’t showed my stomach to anyone and would always wear big baggy jumpers and tops to cover it up. I’d be mortified if when taking off my jumper it lifted to show my several muffins top!”

“Well seven months later and (with some ups and downs) I can truly say I’m confident and happy with my body! Is my stomach amazingly toned? No. Do I still have some tummy rolls? Yes. Am I ok with it? Absolutely! “

“I do know that if I was strict in myself in terms of food and exercise that I could change that but I’m not sure I want to enough. Life is about balance.”

“What I’ve learnt about myself doing the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is that it isn’t a journey as a journey has an end, but it is truly a change in lifestyle.”

“Sometimes I’m not great with my food intake, other days I’m not great with exercise and more than often I’m a balanced version of both, good with what I fuel my body and what I do with it and to me that’s what makes it sustainable!” 

“I love how much the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has changed my mindset and outlook to eating healthier and looking after myself!”

“I can only think this is how my two little girls will think about food and exercise in their lifetimes too and that is worth every penny in the world!”

Siobhan Docherty has lost 28 lbs

Siobhan says, “I joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge at the beginning of 2018 after seeing Xmas photos of myself!”

“The Healthy Mummy popped up on my Facebook and I loved all the transformations so decide to sign up for a year and what an amazing decision that was!” 

“I decided it was time for new pants a few weeks ago as the ones I was wearing were ridiculously big! I couldn’t believe the difference when I bought some new ones! Here is a photo of said pants and of me wearing new pants! I unfortunately never took any photos from the back when I first joined!”

“So far I have lost just over two stone but gained confidence, cooking skills and a love of being in the kitchen! If you are unsure of signing up really what have you got to lose! Go on give it a go, you will love the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.”

Victoria Zinopoulos has lost 10 lbs

Victoria says, “So, this is me! Since having my son I gained weight and lost confidence. Not a good combo!”

“Then I found the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge! Since I joined I have lost a modest 10lb and several inches, but more importantly I have gained lots of confidence and I’m feeling happy again!”

“I know more pounds and inches will come off and I know the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge will help that happen!”

“The real game changer for me is the smoothies! I post smoothie pics quite a lot, but that’s because I drink them a lot and they are truly amazing! Tasty, nutritious, filling and so creamy they genuinely feel like a treat! In my opinion they are magic!”

“Oh, and the other day my husband said I’m getting my curvy shape back in the middle! If that’s not encouragement to keep going, I don’t know what is!”
