In January 2017, Julie Banham weighed 120kg* and she says she tried to avoid being in any family photos.
“I missed out on so much. Fast forward to now I’m 55kg down and I’m a different person. I feel happy and confident,” she says.

Strong, confident and in control Julie is loving her new life
Julie Banham from Fennell Bay is 45 years-old and says, “I was never in family photos. I’m strong. I’m confident. I’m in control.”
“I go to the gym five days a week and play indoor netball with my 23-year-old daughter. I can keep up with my 3 and 8-year-old girls and I love life!
“I meal prep and love to make new recipes off the 28 Day Challenge App each week. The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge keeps me on track.”
Julie’s 3 tips for staying on track are:
- Be organised. Have a clear plan for your week ahead. Meal and snack prep is so important to keep you on track
- Keep track of your daily calories as you eat them making sure that you don’t exceed your daily calories each day.
- Learn to love exercising. Try to incorporate exercise into 5 days a week and have two days rest.
“Most importantly do this for yourself. Nobody else. Try to put yourself first for once because you’re worth it.”
Support keeps Julie on track
Julie says “I’m 46, a mum to three daughters aged 24, 9 and 4. I’ve been a serial yo-yo dieter my whole adult life which found me at 118kg.
I thought that was going to be how life would be for me until I found The Healthy Mummy.
Through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the constant online support I’ve lost 55kg.
The Healthy Mummy Facebook Support Group has been my constant support and encouragement. They are always there for me through thick and thin.
Not being alone in your weight loss and maintenance journey makes all the difference. Make the life changing decision and join The Healthy Mummy. You’ve got nothing to lose but the weight.”
Over 45 and rocking a hot bod!
Julie says “Today I took my top off at the gym and just wore my Healthy Mummy crop and tights.
Never have I ever been brave enough to do that.
I go to a Crossfit gym where there are no mirrors. No muscle men hanging around on machines.
I attend the 9.30 class that’s usually made up of women just like me with an awesome free creche.
There’s no judgement just a positive, caring, uplifting environment where there’s no comparisons to each others ability.
My coach Yonni is totally inspiring and wants to see us all be the best version of ourselves possible.
Today she took some photos during class then sent them to us after.
I’m super proud of how far I’ve come physically and mentally since I made the life changing decision and became a Healthy Mummy.”
Life changing and in control of her life
Julie says, “120kg to 75kg. 45kg gone forever! The Healthy Mummy has completely changed my life. I have gone from a terrible yo-yo dieter to a happy healthy person in control of my eating.
The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge keeps me on track. It has helped me lose the weight, helped me maintain my weight loss and it will help me lose my final kgs and maintain my weight loss for life.
It helps me be organised and provides me with healthy and delicious meals and snacks for my family. At 46 I’m finally in control of my eating and my body.”
