Hey Everyone,
To date I have lost 17kg, going from 93kg down to 76kg since June 2014 using The Healthy Mummy Smoothies & 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges
If I can do it, you most certainly can too!
Today I am sharing with you a piece on PCOS.
I know this has certainly helped me on my Lose Baby Weight journey. I hope you can take away from it what you need and also I cannot stress enough that I am not a professional in PCOS, this is just what has helped me and this is what I understand to be true.
Lose Baby Weight-16kg LossPCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) comes up in the private facebook support group a lot with women seeking advice as to what works for others, “Does Lose Baby Weight work for someone with PCOS?”” How much weight and in what time frame have people lost it in” etc etc. First of all I want to say YES IT IS DOABLE!
And YES LOSE BABY WEIGHT IS THE ANSWER! (Well I know it is very much my answer to successful weight loss.)
Lose Baby Weight’s Low GI diet plans and exercise plans are exactly what someone with PCOS should be introducing into their everyday. For me personally I need healthy nutritious foods AND exercise combined together to maintain steady weightloss.
I LOVE the 28 Day Challenges! Healthy Nutritious meal plans that are completely customisable to suit your needs and daily exercises to incorporate into every day.


There are many factors involved with PCOS and I’m not going to go into everything as I’d be here all day but here are some that have been useful for me to help understand my body better to then help with my continued weight loss.

    As mentioned before a Low GI diet is best for PCOS. Foods that are full of nutritional value that will fuel your body, think wholefoods that are natural, fruits, vegetables, fibre and protein. If you have processed or refined sugars in your diet then ditch them!
    As some may be aware added hormones/chemicals are not good for our bodies let alone someone with PCOS. PCOS is usually linked with a Hormonal Imbalance, so doing what you can to help your hormone levels really helps your PCOS symptoms as well as aiding in weightloss. I know a major thing for me was finding out that Dairy has the hormone IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor 1) in it. Since reducing added hormones in my diet and limiting dairy products to a bare minimum, my PCOS symptoms have improved greatly and I saw a noticeable change in my weight when doing so and my hormone imbalance has improved too. The Healthy Mummy Smoothie is dairy free and uses non genetically modified soy protein isolate which is free of all oestrogen and hormone
    Most will know and for those who don’t (I sure wasn’t informed of this before looking into it) that PCOS is closely linked with Insulin resistance or at least heightened insulin levels compared to those who don’t have PCOS. Higher insulin in our bodies due to resistance or similar can lead to more fat being stored as our bodies are not processing the insulin as affectively as it should. High insulin levels can play mayhem on our bodies leading to those glorious symptoms we all hate such as increased hair growth, weight gain, skin tags, fatty liver and high cholesterol, polycystic ovaries as well as an irregular menstrual cycle.
    Following a Low GI diet such as what is on offer from the Healthy Mummy/Lose Baby Weight’s programs is exactly what a PCOS diet should be incorporating.
    Eat regularly to keep blood sugar levels stable. Lots of protein, healthy fats, fibre and avoid processed foods and refined sugars.
    Incorporate 30 minutes of exercise 5 times a week or as much as you can.


Introducing the Lose Baby Weight Low GI plans and ditching the High GI foods that I was eating previous to starting Lose Baby Weight.
I love the 28 Day Challenges as the weekly meal planner is completely customisable and meals are easily adjustable to suit all dietary needs.
The reason I am know following this is due to information I have read and also researched from www.pcosdietsupport.com (Please note before going on any type of restrictive diet speak to a professional, I am not and nor do I claim to be a professional in PCOS this is just what works for me.)
With Breakfast and most Lunches sorted with a Healthy Mummy smoothie adding in small snacks and eating a healthy nutritious Dinner was simple. It helps keep my metabolism going as well as keeping my blood sugar levels stable.
Introducing regular exercise into my daily routine from incidental exercises, daily walking, 28 Day Challenge exercises as well as the Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy DVD.
I love the 28 Day Challenges due to the HIIT daily exercise as well as the new introduction of the Pilates. A great variety which really gets your heart rate up.
Understanding my body with PCOS and being aware what is best for it and what will ultimately help not hinder where I want to be.

DO NOT LET PCOS DEFINE YOUR JOURNEY! I have never once let PCOS get in my way to where I have wanted to be on my weightloss journey, yes it can be damn hard compared to the next person and yes sometimes you will want to throw in the towel because it all seems to hard, but DO NOT GET DISHEARTENED BY LITTLE RESULTS! Those little results whether it be on the scales, measurements, non-scale victories are getting you one step closer to where you want to be.
Research PCOS, ask your GP or even speak to a naturopath about what PCOS means for you and your body and what steps you need to take.
YOU ARE WORTH IT! You are most certainly worth spending the time on to make you the best version you can be. You need this more than you know and you can do this, a little belief can take you a long way so start believing in yourself.
I wish you all the luck in the world and I truly believe you can and will smash it out of the ball park. PCOS is NOT what defines you, you are the creator of your own journey.

“1st photo 74kg, 2nd photo 58kg. All started with the help of Lose Baby Weight, I love my Healthy Mummy Smoothies for breakfast and the 28 Day Weight Loss challenges have taught me so much about how to eat well and nourish my body with the right foods. The support and encouragement from this group has kept me going when I have felt like giving up many times. Late last year I stepped out of my comfort zone and became a fitness instructor with the help and encouragement of my awesome PT. I still can’t believe this is me, haven’t worn a bikini in 10 years.”
