An Australian mother-of-three has detailed exactly how she lost a whopping 53 kilos in just 18 months using a weight loss challenge and portion control.
Growing up Ms Ready admitted that she was ‘never really that into fitness’ and watched as the number on the scales steadily increased – until having kids made her more determined than ever to get in shape.
‘I’ve been overweight my whole life and the one thing I don’t want is my kids to go down the same path I did,’ she said.
Jasmine Ready, who lives with her family in Queensland, has embarked on two successful weight loss journeys using The Healthy Mummy workouts and cooking tips
Ms Ready had tried a number of different strategies before following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge by The Healthy Mummy, including cutting out food, working out all the time and opting for ‘healthier meals’
‘I want to be positive about my body and show my little ones how important it is to nourish yourself with good food and also take care of yourself.’
Ms Ready had tried a number of different strategies before following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge by The Healthy Mummy, including cutting out food, working out all the time and opting for ‘healthier meals’.
‘The lightbulb moment for me was when I realised the best thing to do was to watch my portion sizes. I learnt you don’t need to cut out certain food groups to lose weight,’ she said.
‘In fact, by cutting down my portion sizes and meal prepping my family’s grocery bill is now down by $400 a month!’
What is Healthy Mummy?
The aim of The Healthy Mummy has always been to empower mums to live a healthier life and it started off with just a few hundred mums using the programs on Facebook to more than 825,000 mums being part of The Healthy Mummy Community and transforming their health, life and body on the plans.
The two biggest products are the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the Healthy Mummy Smoothies.
There are also over 52 books, supplements, singlets, active range, snack bars and lots more which cover Healthy Kids products and Healthy Pregnancy products. There are also 130 Healthy Mummy Consultants who are working mums themselves.

Healthy pizza recipes are popular among those who follow the Healthy Mummy program
Pasta is also encouraged but is often loaded up with vegetables and low fat cheese
After finishing the 28 day challenge – and losing 39 kilos in the process – Ms Ready continued to lose weight just by using the program’s app and watching her food intake.
‘My success has been that I don’t eat after 7pm, I eat five times a day and I exercise 30 minutes a day,’ she said.
‘My food diary is very boring but it’s easy and cheap.’
Breakfast used to start with a smoothie but now Ms Ready prepares overnight Weetbix so she can be on the move quickly.
Morning tea is watermelon before she prepared a fresh sandwich with meat and salad for lunch.

Afternoon tea is watermelon again followed by an Uncle Toby’s Milo bar before a dinner of either meat and veggie bake, apricot chicken bake, risotto, spaghetti, or pumpkin soup.
What’s more, Jasmine is a big fan of The Healthy Mummy smoothies, salted caramel being her favourite.
‘I love the smoothie range so quick and easy, my favourite flavour is salted caramel tummy powder with strawberries and milk,’ she said
‘Set yourself small goals and little rewards. I was always excited when I reach every five kilos down and would reward myself with either new gym wear, hair or pedicure.’
