Last month, 1,950 of our Healthy Mummy members took a few minutes to tell us a little bit about their lives. We were absolutely blown away by the quality of the feedback we got, and we’re excited to share what we learned with you.
You told us you’re sleep-deprived and time-poor. You’re flat out juggling multiple people and priorities, such that skipping breakfast has become commonplace and grabbing a takeaway on the weekend is essential for survival.
We hear you!!!!
The rest of what you told us can be found below, and we’ll be responding to this research with helpful articles filled with practical suggestions and healthy alternatives.   What we found out about you Results of our healthy mummy survey

DID YOU KNOW that 65% of mums think the hardest part of weight loss is staying motivated.

Motivation is something that comes and goes in waves.  We often start our weight loss journey with huge motivation, but after a few weeks it can begin to dwindle.  This is perfectly normal and we have 10 tips to help you stay motivated when you feel it starting to slide.
Winter can often be the hardest time of the year to keep motivated, especially when it comes to exercise.  It’s so much easier to stay rugged up indoors than brave the cold to do a workout.  Luckily we have 7 great ideas for exercising during the cold winter months.
