Krystle Allan has lost over 20kg on the challenges flash back friday weight loss results - Krystle Allan

Krystle says “The other day I posted my current photo and think I got a little down on myself. Then someone asked about my before photos and wow!! Over 20kg and stacks of cm’s!  What a change! Yes I do have more goals I want to achieve with toning but look how far i have come! Not only that but my confidence has grown so much!

I couldn’t recommend the Healthy Mummy smoothies any higher and wouldn’t have achieved this result without the 28 day weight loss challenge, smoothies, books and of course this group!
Thank you for keeping me on track!”
