Meet Bernadette - Healthy Inspirations

Meet Bernadette

Lost 27kgs and 70cms

I have struggled with being overweight since I was in high school; I became obese after having my children. I have tried various fad diets to try and lose weight, some worked for a short time but I always put the weight back on.

My health prompted me to change my lifestyle. I watched people around me, my age being diagnosed with things like high blood pressure and diabetes, and I didn’t have either but I knew it was only a matter of time if I didn’t do something about it.

I joined Healthy Inspirations in 2017 and have made steady progress with my weight loss. My Healthy Inspirations coach, Simone, taught me about the program and has motivated me along the way. We catch up weekly, we discuss my food diary and she gives me helpful tips about planning for the next week and how to best manage events like going out for dinner to a restaurant.

I feel more energetic. I have an issue with my knee and since losing 27kg with Healthy Inspirations I have less joint pain and I am more active, and I can actually run (or jog). I have training sessions where Simone runs me through an exercise program she has set for me: she knows my strengths and weaknesses and she introduces me to different exercise so I don’t get bored and I’m working different muscle groups.

My life has changed so much: I walk to visit friends or go to the shopping centre down the road instead of driving.

I recently tried on my wedding dress that I wore 22 years ago and it fit and was a little loose. When I achieve my next mini goal (I have 3kg to go) I will be the lightest I have been in my adult life and when I achieve that goal I will try on my Debut dress that I wore when I was 17 years old.

I have vowed that because I have come so far and I feel so healthy now that I will never go back to where I was. I am still enjoying the nutrition plan and trying new recipes from the website. Healthy Inspirations has changed my life, I only wish I had done this sooner.

Join now, I’ve tried many different diets in the past but this is the first time I’ve had long standing success. The nutrition plan is easy to follow and the staff are very helpful and supportive.

My top tips:

  1. Try the delicious recipes from the website.
  2. Food is fuel for your body, feed your body the right fuel and it will reward you.
  3. Talk to your consultant about how you are feeling and be honest as this is the only way they can help you.
