Lost 11.9 kilos and 41.5 cm.
After a week away with my husband, I came home and weighed myself. I was so disappointed with myself, not one ounce had shifted. We went walking every day for hours exploring our great coastline. I obviously was eating wrongly when I thought I was making good choices.
At first I thought I wouldn’t be able to cope eliminating some of the foods from my lifestyle, but I really surprised myself. Not eating high carb foods hasn’t been a problem. I didn’t feel like I had to give up all my favourite things whilst on my weight lost journey. I still don’t eat pasta, only because now I don’t like how it makes me feel so bloated and uncomfortable. Occasionally I eat some bread but don’t beat myself up over it because I usually treat myself to some out at dinner. I still enjoy the glass of wine or two but again only on a weekend.
Without Nola’s weekly encouragement I would have continued to struggle. The coaches at the centre and members were so supportive. I still like to see them for accountability because no one’s perfect and occasionally we need a push to get back on track (well I do).
My family are proud of my journey because they can see how much healthier and happier I am and I’ve instilled some good eating habits into their lives also.
I have a zest for life!! I’ve made new friends. I haven’t been this fit or healthy since my early twenties. I sound clichéd but shopping was something I feared because I looked so overweight and frumpy whatever I wore. I also love exercising every day and don’t feel right even if I miss a walk.
