R’Echele Mjadwesch has transformed her health by taking control of her lifestyle and losing a whopping 22 kilos in just 10 months!
Determined not to develop any health complications due to her size, R’Echele turned her lifestyle around with the help of The Healthy Mummy and cannot believe how good she feels!
“I’m no longer tired all the time and have energy to spare. I can be active with my kids and they love seeing their mum active and are my biggest fans and support team!”
R’Echele’s Weight Loss Journey
R’Echele Mjadwesch from Lithgow is 42 with two kids aged 11 and 8.
Being able to care for others was R’Echele’s main motivator for wanting to lose weight and live her healthiest life. Back in November last year, she found herself at the heaviest weight she’d ever been. As the primary carer and support for not only her elderly mum and unwell father-in-law, but also her husband and her own kids, she knew she need to make a change.
“I thought if I don’t take care of myself how can I take care of anyone else??”
“My mother has many health problems that predispose me to many problems in the future if I didn’t make some lifestyle changes now. I needed to be a good role model for my kids and mould healthy habits for life long wellness for us all.”
R’Echele purchased the Healthy Mummy Busy Mums’ Guide to Weight Loss on a Budget last December and as a family planned the first weeks meals, shopped and got to cooking.
“In February 2021 at size18-20 and weighing 99kg I joined The Healthy Mummy on a 3 month membership to explore more dietary options. Having the app was great and helped boost motivation. In no time at all, I upgraded to the Platinum members pack and began enjoying the dietary products on offer.
Weight Loss Results – 22 kilos!
“In a few short months I’d transformed from a mumma who could walk 600m in 20mins to a mumma walking 7km in an hour and I make exercise of some description a priority every day.”
“I have 22kg total loss 18kg since commencing my Healthy Mummy journey.
R’Echele is enjoying the health benefits since losing weight. She’s no longer short of breath and has fewer headaches.
“I’m no longer tired all the time and have energy to spare. I can be active with my kids and the love seeing their mum active and are my biggest fans and support team!”
“My body shape has changed so much and my mindset has too. I look forward to my daily activities, mostly walking and feel much happier and fulfilled for reaching my daily goals.”
R’Echele has incorporated the Healthy Mummy Smoothies into her routine enjoying them for breakfast 3 to 4 times a week.
“My favourite is the premium caramel one but am excited to try the premium banana one in my next order.”

R’Ecele’s Three tips for success
- Set achievable goals and be kind to yourself.
- Don’t change everything overnight – you didn’t gain the weight in a day, it will take time to adjust to a new lifestyle (it takes 3 months to form new habits)
- Get a good fitness tracker to help you keep on top of your daily activities and help you push that little bit more.
R’Ecele also has some awesome advice for mums starting out on a new health journey.
“Start. Just start small. You can’t change anything if you don’t start somewhere. Pick a few recipes from the app to try. Reduce your meal portions for meals not from the app. Try and drink a little more water each day until you are able to drink 2L a day at least. Have fun and be kind to yourself.”
