We recently interviewed this amazing mama – check out what she had to say below.

What inspired you to join the Healthy Mummy UK Support Group?

I was inspired to join the Healthy Mummy UK Facebook Support Group following its launch late last year.

I had previously been a member of the Australian Private Facebook Support Group. I also have some friends who live in Australia who were having fantastic results and I wanted to get involved and learn more.

I totally fell in love with the WHOLE ethos of the Healthy Mummy lifestyle and was SUPER excited when it was announced it would be launched in the U.K.

Have you joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?

I am a 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member and have been since January 2018.

What inspired you to kick start your health and weight loss journey?

I was inspired by all of the amazing transformations in the support group and how simple it seemed to change my lifestyle (and my families) to a healthier and happier one.

You can check out some of these INCREDIBLE TRANSFORMATIONS stories that helped inspired me here.

What has been your greatest obstacle while on your health and weight loss journey thus far?

My biggest obstacle is myself!

I am very good at self sabotage and falling into bad habits so I have to make sure I’m super organised and plan in meal prep/exercise time into my days and weeks so it stops me from straying off course.

 

What has been your greatest achievement while on your health and weight loss journey thus far?

My greatest achievement thus far is getting comfortably into size 16 clothes after being a size 20 for what felt like forever! As well as beginning to fit into some of my size 14’s. This was something I thought would never happen!

What is your main HEALTH and weight loss goal?

My current weight loss goal is to get to a healthy BMI which would put my weight at around 11st 7lbs. I have gone from 16st 9lbs to 13st 6lbs so I know this is doable.

You can calculate your BMR with the Healthy Mummy here.

The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App also has great tools to help you track your BMR, calculate your calories and totally smash your weight loss goals.

What are your smaller, monthly goals?

My smaller monthly goals tend to be aiming at loosing around half a stone a month.

This isn’t a quick fix. I’m in it for the long game so I’m not pushing myself too hard as I know I’ll want to give up.

I know I will get to where I want to be if it takes 1 year or if it takes 2 years at the end of the day the end result will still be achieved.

Do you have any tips for other mums starting out on there health and weight loss journey?

My main tip would be to be kind to yourself!

This is a lifestyle change, not a diet!

It’s not about starving yourself or exercising from dawn till dusk. It’s about fitting things in around a busy family life and not being too hard on yourself if you stray off course along the way. Sometimes we all have to hit the reset button.
