Transformation of the Day: Ambur lost 78 pounds. In August 2020, she decided that she was tired of “faking the funk” and wanted to get back doing the things she loves the most. Exercise was not a major factor in her success. Ambur transformed by fully committing to healthy eating habits.

Ambur lost 78 pounds

My name is Ambur Inoj, and I’m originally from Norfolk, VA. I started my weight loss journey back in August of 2020 at 5’5″ and about 280 pounds. Since then, I’ve lost 78 pounds, placing me at about 202 pounds within six months! I did this all by just changing my diet. 

What was your motivation?
I decided it was time for me to be happy after faking the funk for so long. I wanted to get back to the things I enjoyed the most, like going out with my friends, shopping, and dating. I got real with myself and admitted I wasn’t happy, and I wanted to make a change. I looked into getting gastric surgery but was too afraid of the side effects. Instead, I decided to pray over my journey this time and ask for guidance and strength to stay committed. 

How did you change your eating habits?
I started by choosing three of my favorite foods to eliminate from my diet. My choices were milk, cereal, bread, and soda. I saw significant results doing this. Eventually, I switched to a fully Pescatarian diet by October! The best thing about my journey was that I achieved these amazing results and never purchased a gym membership. Now and then, I’d do a few squats, sit ups, or jumping jacks, but my main change was committing to healthy eating. 

Amber before and after weight loss

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned throughout my journey is to change my relationship with food, not eliminate it. 

What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
If I could give any advice to the next woman on her wellness journey, it would be to keep your eye on the prize. Also, always keep this saying in your head, ‘If you would’ve started when you first had the thought, you’d be seeing the results of all your work by now.’

How good do these look? The recipe for these yummy muesli bars was sent to us by Healthy Mummy community member Kimberly Hicks.

Shop-bought muesli bars are usually marketed as a healthy option but all too often can contain lots of added sugar. That’s exactly why Kimberly came up with this recipe.  She says, “My eldest loves muesli bars and chocolate but I’m not so keen on the sugar content and hidden ingredients. We are all fans in this house. If you don’t like your muesli bars too sweet omit the honey.”

The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has heaps of amazing muesli bar and snack recipes that are low sugar and perfect for when you’re watching your weight, plus are great for the kids lunch boxes.

Most men will include weight loss when they work out their health goals but that doesn’t mean they need to continually watch the scales.

These three men have seen amazing changes in their health without being too concerned with whether the scales have changed.

Health goals are not just about the scales just ask these 3 men

Michael Locke

Michael is a 48-year-old wagon maintainer from Fennell Bay in NSW who isn’t one to weigh himself but that doesn’t mean he’s not seen changes in his health and body since enjoying The Healthy Man Meal Replacement.

“Not being one to weigh myself, my clothes and the way I feel is my true indication of how I’m going. I’ve seen an improvement in sleep and reduction in snoring, reoccurring heartburn has ceased.

My shirts and pants are all feeling a lot looser. I’m feeling less bloated, I sleep better and I have more energy throughout the day.”

So without the scales what changes has Michael seen since starting his Healthy Man journey 7 weeks ago.

“I have now been using The Healthy Man Meal Replacement for the last 7 weeks. I have one Healthy Man Meal Replacement Shake each day for breakfast. I’m sleeping a lot better at night and apparently, I’ve stopped snoring. My reoccurring heartburn has stopped and I’m no longer getting daily headaches. I have a lot more energy and instead of overeating I’ve been getting out and being more active.”

So why has he been able to keep up with The Healthy Man Meal Replacement?

“Loving the taste of the Chocolate Smoothie. I’m now looking forward to getting my next tub in Vanilla.”

Jason Stocks

Lost 3kgs in 4 months

Jason Stocks is a 54-year-old Melbourne spray painter who’s been enjoying The Healthy Man Meal Replacement for a few months and seen his scales drop and ready to kick some health goals.

The Healthy Man Meal Replacement is definitely not as grainy as smoothies I have tried in the past I am going to be more consistent with having them this month because I need to kick some health goals!!”

He’s not bee 100% consistent with enjoying The Healthy Man Meal Replacement but he’s still seen his scales drop in the last 4 months.

“I have been having the Healthy Man shakes off and on for 4 months but not consistently. I have lost 3 kilos in this time. The vanilla smoothie is my favourite so creamy and smooth. I love to add banana, strawberries and peanut butter. Definitely feel more energetic and less bloated when having the smoothies.”

John F

John is a busy dad of 2 from regional NSW who’s been enjoying The Healthy Man Meal Replacement for the 6 weeks and although he’s not seen a change in the scales he’s seeing his health transform.

“I’ve been using The Healthy Man Meal Replacement for 6 weeks approximately 4 times a week. Previously I would reach for a quick breakfast fix of toast or sugar-loaded cereals. It has been a game-changer for starting my day as it keeps me full and going until lunchtime. The vanilla and chocolate flavours are both delicious, smoothie and creamy. I highly rate The Healthy Man Meal Replacement.”

The convenience of The Healthy Man Meal Replacement has seen John change his habits and although the scales haven’t moved he has seen some changes in his body for the better.

The Healthy Man Meal Replacement is quick, convenient, and yummy. I like the convenience, creamy texture and flavour of The Healthy Man Meal Replacement. I’ve seen muscle gains, confidence gains, healthy mindset gains. They keep me full and no nasty sugar high.”

Weight Loss

This incredible mum has lost 20kg and now she has MORE energy than she ever has before.

Louise Basdekis decided she was going to make herself a priority and focus on her health, that’s when she signed up to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Here’s how she did it…

Louise has lost 20kg and no longer feels sluggish or bloated

The 36-year-old from Melbourne, who is mum to two boys, says she was so puffed and out of breath after running around after her kids.

“I couldn’t keep up with them nor did I have the energy to. I was miserable and I would eat my emotions,” she says.

“I have lost 20kg so far with the help of The Healthy Mummy and I would love to lose a further 10-15kg. I started my journey in June of 2020.”

Amazingly, Louise has gone from a size 18-20 to a size 14.

“I have so much more energy I actually wake up in the morning and feel like I can take on anything,” she says.

“Physically, I feel more energetic and healthy not sluggish or bloated like I used to. I’m also mentally well and feel more focused and can concentrate more.”

Louise reveals she suffered with postnatal depression with her first child and turned to food for comfort.

“I barely ever exercised. Now I use The Healthy Mummy Premium Smoothies everyday,” she says.

“They are my absolute saviour each morning because I’m always on the go. I work four days a week so life gets super busy.

“They keep me full and they’re absolutely hands down the most delicious smoothies I’ve ever tried. My favourite at the moment is the banana sundae!

What’s more, Louise reveals she also uses The Healthy Mummy Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets, The Revive Face Oil and The Healthy Mummy Snack Bars.

A typical day for Louise:

  • Healthy Mummy Premium Smoothie with almond milk for breakfast and a coffee.
  • Morning snack is either some fruit or a Healthy Mummy Snack Bar.
  • Lunch would be a wrap or salad I mix it up with different recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.
  • I drink 2-3 litres of water a day.
  • Afternoon snack is generally a Healthy Mummy snack. My favourites are the Banana Oat Muffins or Bliss Balls and can’t go past the Super Food Rocky Road!
  • I always prep my dinners for the week on a Sunday, so our family favourites are the Mexican Lasagne or the One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese. We also love the Rice Paper Rolls or Pizza using the 2 ingredient pizza dough.
  • I love the dance cardio exercises or HIIT with Wendy.

Time-poor mum loses 20kg and now has more energy than ever before!

Louise’s 3 tips for success

  1. Always remember your why. Why you started your journey and wanted to make a change.
  2. Drink lots of water
  3. Start with small changes

“My advice would be to not focus on the number on your scales. The amount of times I would get disheartened when the scales didn’t move yet my clothes felt more loose and I just felt better. I would only weigh in once a week or even once a fortnight.”

These inspirational MOTIVATING MUMS will help keep you on track this month

“Hi, I’m Sophie, I’m 26 years old and live in Adelaide. I have 5 month old boy and 14 year old fur baby.”

Sophie’s success with The Healthy Mummy

“I first joined The Healthy Mummy August 2020 with the goal to loose a few kg and become healthier prior to trying for my son. Since having him in October 2020, I have lost 10kg and still have more to lose.

“Since being apart of The Healthy Mummy, I have improved not only in my physical health but my mental health too. I’m still continuing to do the Challenges to lose weight but also just continue with this healthy lifestyle, not only for me but my whole family.”

Sophie’s goal for this month

“Exercise 5 times a week, drink 2 litres of water everyday and lose weight no matter how small.”

Sophie’s top tips for getting started

1. Start simple and make small changes.

Such as focussing on just your water intake to start.

2. Set small achievable goals daily

These can include going for a walk, drinking your water, taking time for you and taking part in self-care and eating your calories.

3. Being kind to yourself

Making any change to becoming fit and healthy is positive. It’s not all about losing weight it’s about making healthy changes for the long term.
I have been using the smoothies since I joined The Healthy Mummy and have really loved the flavour the convenience of the smoothies.

“The Challenge app has so so so many delicious recipes, for meals I love the easy cheesy eggplant parmigiana, Mexican Lasagne and for snacks. I love the Choc Lava Microwave Cake and the New York Baked Cheesecake.”

These inspirational MOTIVATING MUMS will help keep you on track this month

“Hi, I’m Elyce. I’m 29, from Townsville and a mum to three beautiful kids – 8 year old twin boys and a 6 year old daughter.

“I’ve previously lost 30kgs with The Healthy Mummy before I hit a dark spot and regained 10kgs. I’ve been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since November 2017.”

Elyce’s goals for this month

“Horror hit me the other day when I realised I’m 5 months shy from my wedding and I’m still far from my goal weight. My aim for April is to get 100% back on track again, find my worth and successfully lose 5kgs!”

Elyce’s success with The Healthy Mummy

“Before The Healthy Mummy, I was tired, lethargic and had next to no energy, but since I’ve had such success I’ve found confidence, energy and more time for my children! B

“At the beginning of 2017, I was diagnosed with depression and that’s what made me turn my life around. Since losing weight, I’ve been in a healthier mind set and have had a clear view on what’s ahead!

“I aim to get to 80kgs before august this year! Ideally I think 75kgs will be where I’ll stop, but 80kgs will be my decision on whether I need to lose more!

“My favourite has to be the Mongolian Beef Stir Fry and not to mention the Choc Chip Banana Bread for dessert to finish it off!”

Elyce’s top tips

1. Start small

You don’t change overnight so there is no need to change your life around in an instant! Start with the small things and work your way up.

2. Be kind to yourself

Having a bad day? Let it be and start fresh tomorrow. Life isn’t perfect!

3. Drink smoothies for breakfast

Smoothies are my life saver and I’ve been using them since 2016! I’ve never been a big breakfast eater, so having a smoothie every morning gives me the start to my day I need and I begin on track!

Transformation of the Day: Marquita lost 61 pounds. She had symptoms of diabetes but was not diabetic. She was diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Tired of weight gain and symptoms like swollen feet and skin discoloration on her neck, she decided to make health her top priority. She had Gastric Sleeve surgery in 2019, and it’s been a game-changer.

Marquita lost 61 pounds

My name is Marquita, and I’ve struggled with my weight my entire adult life. In 2013, I had a tummy tuck. I was trying to cut corners, but without the right mindset, it was an epic fail. Within two years, I gained so much weight that my stomach was essentially larger than it was before the tummy tuck. I weighed 197 pounds when I got the tuck, and a few years later, I weighed about 225 pounds. From there, I continued to gain more and more weight. 

My doctor diagnosed me with metabolic syndrome. I had all the symptoms of diabetes, but I’m not a diabetic. I suffered from swollen feet, intense sweats, and a darkening neck [Acanthosis nigricans]. Nothing I tried would work. 

I got married in September 2018. On my Wedding Day, I weighed in at 267 pounds. After returning home from Las Vegas, my husband and I decided I would take advantage of his excellent medical benefits and have a Gastric Sleeve operation. On October 29, 2019, I had my VSG surgery, and it was the best decision I’ve made in my life.

Marquita before and after

What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up? 
What inspired me was the desire to be here for my family. My health was declining fast. Knowing there was something I could do to turn it around pushed me in the right direction.

How did you change your eating habits after surgery?
Changing my eating habits was so hard, but the fear of undoing the results I achieved kept me focused. I stopped eating all my late-night sweet treats and focused more on low-carb and high protein foods.

What did your workout routine consist of? 
Cardio, cardio, and more cardio! Cardio was my main focus, along with training with light weights.

How often did you work out?
Daily! Sometimes even 2-3 times a day!

What is your current weight?
206 pounds is my current weight.

When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I started this journey (or should I say restarted this journey after several failed crash diets) in June 2018.

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that consistency is key. It’s “mind over matter” if you want to be successful.

What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
If you don’t like anything about yourself, CHANGE IT. We live in a technologically advanced world. If weight loss is what you need to boost your confidence or self-esteem, go for it. 

Always start slow and keep REALISTIC expectations. Be the best YOU that you possibly can! Lastly, anything is possible if you put in the work!
