Her initial motivation for losing weight came after she saw a photo of herself standing next to her twin sister. She felt her sister looked amazing and was ashamed at how she had let herself go.
“My sister looked amazing and I noticed I was wearing a loose top to hide my belly”.
While the photo was what spurred Holly on to lose weight it has been post-it-notes that have kept her motivated. She writes on them regularly, reminding herself why she is losing weight and why she is doing this for her family.
How Holly is losing weight
“Initially, I started off having 1 Healthy Mummy smoothie a day and now I am a two smoothie a day girl.”
Top left picture – “The realisation I had started to get bigger as my twin sister was looking amazing and I wore loose tops to hide my belly”. Top right – “When hubby and I bit the bullet and decided we needed to change” Bottom left – “A few weeks post baby #3. Almost back to the same size as my twin sister”. Bottom right – “4.10st. lost and heaps of inches gone.”
“I’ve currently lost 4.10st. (the combined weight of Mr 3 and miss 10 months).”
Holly’s goal is to lose another 1.8st.
“Although my Healthy Mummy journey has been long, it has been so rewarding. Not just with losing 4.10st. but my overall health is so much better. And I have learned to raise my kids healthier too.
Don’t give up if you aren’t seeing progress straight away. You will thank yourself down the track”.
