The epic weight loss journeys of these amazing mums

Amy Bunce

Amy says, “Hi, I’m Amy. I’m 33, from Swadlincote, South Derbyshire and a stay at home mum to my two beautiful girls aged eight months and three years. So far I have lost 14kg and have another 6.3 stone to 7.8 stone left to lose.

I decided to join the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge as I need to loose weight for health reasons. It was a plan that is designed with breastfeeding mums in mind. My pledge for 2019 is to consistently adhere to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge lifestyle diet AND exercise.

For anyone starting out my advice is that you remember that this is a journey, it doesn’t matter how many times you get off track, you can’t fail a journey. So be kind to yourself.”

Amy’s pledge for 2019

“To follow the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge lifestyle (diet and exercise) consistently.”

Tips for staying on track

  1. “Prep is key, make sure you have a good stock of healthy snacks available so you can grab them easily.
  2. Drink plenty of water. Being well hydrated has so so many benefits including helping to keep hunger at bay
  3. Use the support group whenever you are having a tough time. The ladies in there are amazing and will always try to help.”

Vanessa McAdam

Vanessa says, “Hi, I’m Vanessa. I’m 43 and have two boys aged four and three. I’m an Aussie living in Bangor, Northern Ireland. 

I have lost 1.5 stone and over 20cm and 2-3 dress sizes. 

I started Healthy Mummy simply to lose weight but have gained a total lifestyle change that works.”

Vanessa’s pledge for 2019

“I will continue my 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge journey, allow more time for self care, and run a 10k!

If you are thinking about joining, start simple, just try some of the meals and add in the snacks, they are delicious! And now more.”

Vanessa’s 3 tips for staying on track

  1. “be consistent 
  2. have snacks prepped and ready! Having muffins or bliss balls in the freezer can be a godsend!

Eleni Ogbue

Eleni says, “Hello, my name is Eleni and I am 35 years old. I have two children aged four years and 11 months and live in Cambridge.

I started the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge at the start of November, and have lost 11 pounds so far and can feel a big difference in the way my clothes fit. I have to go up to the loft tomorrow to find some smaller trousers as the ones I’ve been wearing for the last few years are now all way too big and baggy, they keep falling down!

You probably can’t see a difference in my photos, but my husband has noticed it, and he never notices anything! I started the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge because I was fed up of feeling fat and ugly and worthless.

I didn’t want my children to be ashamed of me and wonder why I am so much bigger than their mum’s friends. I want to be fit and healthy so I can run around with them and have fun.”

Eleni’s pledge for 2019

  • is to make exercise a regular part of my routine.

Advice for anyone who is thinking of joining is just do it. It’s so cheap and you get so much on the app!

Eleni’s 3 tips for those just starting 

  1. Start with snacks. Prep them in advance and have them ready to turn to when you feel tempted to go for junk.
  2. Don’t feel you have to stick to the meal plan. I look through and choose a couple of meals I like each week and just focus on those.
  3. Don’t worry too much about what the scales say.

Sar McGowan

Sar says, “My name is Sar McGowan, 37 yrs old with a 2 yr old boy and 4yr old girl from Surrey.

  • “be the best I can be in 2019 to be the healthiest me I can be.” 

“If you are thinking of joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges, just go for it – you won’t believe the changes you will see both physically and mentally.

Just ease yourself in and get to know the 28Day Weight Loss Challenges routine. Before you know it, it will all be second nature. Prep as much as you can to help save time and money. Ask for advice when needed in the support group – we are all here to help.”
