Lost a whopping 16.57% of her body weight & 11.8kgs
I’d always maintained a fairly steady weight for most of my adult life until suddenly in my 40s the kilos started to creep on. I tried lots of different diets and exercise regimes, but nothing really worked. One day I got on the scales and found that I was 10kgs over where I wanted to be. I remember standing in front of the wardrobe and realising that I had nothing that fitted me properly and that I didn’t feel good in any of my clothes. That was my tipping point. I decided I needed help to do something about it.
Friends had recommended Healthies so I made an appointment and came in for a chat with Coach Nola. Best thing I ever did! Almost straight away I started to feel better.
Within 2 weeks I was sleeping better (a miracle as I’d struggled with sleep for years), had more energy and just felt happier.
It’s taken me about 5 months to reach my goal, averaging about a 500g loss a week. I’ve not felt hungry at all even though I changed my eating habits quite dramatically. I’m back into my old clothes and even treated myself to a new pair of jeans, shopping is fun again!
I think there’s a few reasons that Healthies has worked when nothing else did. Number one is the amazing support from the team and the weekly check-ins (knowing I have to get on the scales every week has kept me on track). The help from the coaches with changing my thinking around food initially was crucial and I found the recipes and food ideas really workable with a family – all easily sourced and made. For someone who struggles with “what will we have for dinner tonight”, access to all the recipes and meal ideas has been brilliant. The key has been preparation and organisation. I’d never done a weekly meal plan but I do now and it’s been a revelation – less shopping and less stress.
I really look forward to coming in to the centre to do my workouts, it’s such a welcoming and happy place and I enjoy the camaraderie of the other ladies. I’m in better shape now than I have been for 20 years which is a great feeling. I would absolutely recommend Healthies to anyone who’s looking to lose some weight and just feel better.
