Corinne lost 22kgs* with the 28 Day Challenges.  
“I was scrolling through Facebook one day and saw the add for the 28 Day Challenge. I looked into it and thought why not? 
That was the day I realised that only I am in control of what I put in my mouth. I took control of my life and haven’t looked back.
I’ve lost 22kg since October 2015, and I have never felt more fantastic & confident in myself. I LOVE trying on clothes because they don’t fit funny like they used to” 
You won’t regret it!
