Robyn Jurd lost 19.5kg on the challengesFlash back Friday weight loss results - Robyn Jurd

Robyn says “I have lost 19.5kg in the time I have been following Lose Baby Weight. I have almost completed my 9th 28 day weight loss challenge and love how convenient the meal plans are, I’m cooking things I would never have even thought about before.
