Lost 12.6kg and 30cm.
After 2 years of dating the most amazing man, he proposed!!! All my dreams were coming true, but imagining myself in a beautiful gown at the weight I was…that was a nightmare! I knew that I had to change my habits.
Both my parents struggle with their weight and tried different weight loss programmes, some having better results than others. I didn’t have a concern about my weight, but then I turned 18 and moved out of home and purchased a car. I found myself an extra 10kg heavier without too much effort. That is where my struggle with weight really started. 17 years later, I am still in that battle.
I love food, I don’t mind exercise, but I could never quite work out a good balance. A year ago, my Mum responded to an ad for a weight loss challenge with Healthy Inspirations. I thought to myself, ‘go Mum, hope it works, but I’ll pass on that one’. I watched her diligently exercise, eat EXACTLY to plan and within 5 months she lost 27kg!!! 27!!! I was floored…she looked so amazing…and she has kept it off a year later! But I still wasn’t convinced that it was something I could do. It just looked too hard. But then the proposal happened. I told Mum I needed to try Healthy Inspirations, met with Ange and started.
The first week was really hard, I found myself in tears almost every day, but by week 2 I got stuck in. The weight was coming off thick and fast and that motivated me to keep going. I have currently lost 12kg and I have another 18kg to go. I am confident that I will achieve my goal because of the support, programme and motivation I am surrounded by.
I have SO much more energy, throughout the entire day even into the evening. My wardrobe has DOUBLED…because now I can fit my ‘skinny’ clothes.
I have consistently lost weight every week and I can see that I now have more shape and tone to my body. I feel happier, I feel lighter and I am feeling a lot more confident.
I absolutely could NOT have got the results I have at this point in my journey without the weekly meetings I have with my coaches Ange and Leigh. They are so supportive, they keep me accountable and when I look at food that I am not supposed to eat I picture myself sitting down with them a couple of days later and know that it’s just not worth it. I am not very good at motivating myself, I really need external motivation – so this programme works perfectly for me.
- Stick to the programme EXACTLY
- Ask your coaches for some recipes to keep it exciting so you don’t feel like you are eating the same thing every day.
- Exercise at the very least 3 times a week – do the circuit twice each time you go if you can manage it.
