This last month has been a challenge for me to stay on track and I have branched out of my comfort zone 🙂
I have battled with depression for the majority of my adult life. When I was at my worst, I would grab a bottle of wine (or 2), not eat and then binge on whatever I could find. When I was pregnant, I was diagnosed with pre-natal depression and I refused medication and couldn’t drink… So eating it was!!!
Motivating Mum Brooke
Once my son was born, I was diagnosed with post-natal depression, which was no shock! I tried to keep it under control, but medication was quickly the answer and I returned to work when he was still so little. A year later my dad passed away, and I was back into my old habits of drinking my pain away.
Then one day, I decided I had to break the cycle. Diabetes in my family is as common as blonde hair, and I didn’t want to be another statistic. My dad was 64 and had terrible diabetes and passed away from a stroke. All of a sudden I was 33 without a parent and thinking “I can’t do this to my son” So instantly it all changed on January 1st, 2016!!!!!
I started taking my son for walks and thought I was making a difference to my life. The fresh air was doing my brain wonders and I had lost a bit of weight and was feeling on top of the world! I had lost 4kg and was doing something great for my son. Then I was introduced to Healthy Mummy!! Realising that I could make the same meals we loved, but healthier options was amazing to me! And cooking everything from scratch was a novelty!
Fast forward 5 months and I have now lost around 13kg on the 28 day weight loss challenges and have not only gained confidence, but gained some beautiful lifelong friends. I have never been a part of such a supportive loving group that’s filled with women!!! The only jealousy is of a gorgeous new body or a goal that our friends have achieved. I love to be able to share my new achievements without feeling silly that they “mean nothing” Being called inspirational or motivational is something I never thought I’d hear.
I wouldn’t be where I am right now without Healthy Mummy. My son loves seeing mummy active and eating all the new meals. My husband loves simply seeing me smile every day. And best news ever – no more medication!! I wouldn’t say I’m “cured” of depression, but I know how to control it now and have so much more life to live!!

 Tania says: “87kgs to 63kg in these pics. The before pic was after I had my daughter in March 2013, I got down from 96kg to 80kg after having her, and then tried for baby #2. in July 2014 I had my twin boys, and settled at 86kg after their birth. Now sitting at 63kg and aiming for 58kg and a whole lot more muscle.”
