Tell me About Yourself Mel
I am a 43 year old mum with two children, 10 and 8.
I work full time and have the busiest life you could imagine.
My husband works shift work.
My kids keep me busy most nights of the week and on weekends with sporting commitments.
Tell me How much weight you have lost
I've lost 30kg to date and lost over 140cm off my body.
Why did you want to lose weight?
I felt like a failure to myself that I had allowed myself to become so overweight and unfit.
I have two healthy active children and I wanted to set a positive example for them.
The way I was going I was afraid they would be embarrassed to be with me.
I couldn't live with myself if I passed on the legacy of being overweight to them through inactivity and bad food choices.
I wanted to be happy about myself again.
What part of your body did you want to change the most?
I wanted a flat stomach so I didn't have have to worry about muffin tops or looking 6 months pregnant all the time.
What was the turning point that made you decide – YES I am going to change my body and get into shape?
It was a family holiday to Sydney
I was very upset when I realised I had no clothes I felt comfortable in other than a pair of jeans and a few t-shirts even though it was the middle of summer.
I couldn't bear to see myself in shorts or dresses.
Photos we took on that holiday showed me to be the fat faced and unhealthy looking person I’d previously refused to acknowledge.
Tell me about some of the physical changes that you have noticed
I am leaner, stronger and more defined physically.
My skin is clearer and I look younger now than I did 2 years ago.
I have more energy to keep up with the challenges of my busy life and mentally I am so much more positive.
What were you eating when you lost 30kgs?
Each day I started having a Smoothie made with Flat Tummy Protein.
I found the Flat Tummy Protein Smoothie made me feel full and beat my cravings.
My Flat Tummy Protein Smoothies were also really yummy and a treat I could look forward to every day.
