Lost 27.1 kilos and 89.5 cm.

One of my good friends once told me, “Dallas, you will find what works for you”, and sure enough I found Healthy Inspirations.

I have been on the merry go round of weight loss for over 20 years. I have tried everything, all diets, plans, you name it, I’ve also had weight loss surgery. I was always successful short term then eventually I’d put the weight back on that I’d lost plus some more.

As my daughters got older I decided I wanted to be a good role model xfor them. I was successful in business but my weight was always an issue and I didn’t want my daughters following in my footsteps.

So my journey with Healthy Inspirations started in February 2016, I followed the nutrition plan and with the support of my amazing ‘coach’ Ellissa-Mae I’m almost there. Every week Ellissa-Mae was there to motivate and support me. Sure, I’ve had my ups and downs, I’m human after all. I like to drink with friends and family and I’m never going to give up chocolate. But it’s all in moderation. And for me the slower the weight loss the better. You need to surround yourself with people that support you, I had my Mum and sister that were there for me the whole time. They held me accountable but also were realistic that things didn’t always go as planned.

I remember the moment when I first realized that I’d lost quite a lot of weight, I was on a plane flight and I lowered the tray table and to my delight it went all the way down, it didn’t rest on my stomach. That was my first fist pump moment and I’ve had plenty more since then.

I’m close to my goal weight, and I have so much more energy to burn. I’m going to play winter netball this year and my daughters are so excited to watch me play. That right there is worth everything.
