Lost 14.9kg in Beat the Winter Blues 12 week Transformation
There were several events that triggered my decision to start at Healthy Inspirations. As a larger woman I have always been reasonably strong and active, as I have got older those two things had began to decrease.
In the weeks leading up to me joining HI I started realizing that I had been neglecting myself for a while, my ability to be as mobile in my job had decreased, my lack of energy, aches and pains had almost got the better of me. I realized that I needed to do something to help myself.
We had celebrated my daughter’s engagement to her partner and I had seen a few of the photos from her party and my thoughts were that I didn’t want to look like this when she got married in 18 months time. I wanted to be able to buy something really nice for her Wedding. I also had a months holiday booked to Western Australia and I knew that there would be lots of walking and some hiking involved.
That week I had an advertisement come through on my Social media about Healthy Inspirations Blackwood, at that stage I had never heard of them. I had been a member of several gyms in the past and didn’t mind going to a gym but this one seemed to offer a little more.
I work up in the Blackwood area and thought that I would ask my boss if she had heard of the gym, her reply was “Oh yes Jodie, I am a member there and she thought that it would be a great program for me to join. I thought about it for another week or so, I did a little more research and then another advertisement popped up on my social media about Healthy Inspirations and this time it was with someone else that I knew with her success story.
That day after work I contacted Jodie from Healthy Inspirations and made an appointment to start the program, I also made an appointment for the Doctor and the Dentist.
I did have concerns for my ability to be able to lose weight, as I had been eating reasonably healthy without any change in my weight. My idea of healthy eating wasn’t working!
I have noticed huge benefits with my health, I am sleeping better, my appetite is under control, minimal cravings, my energy levels have increased, I have little or no indigestion. My mindset has improved, I feel as though I have had a shift in my thought processes, my will power and desire to succeed gets stronger each day, I’m happier and am loving feeling fitter.
My mobility has improved, I am stronger, fitter and look forward to being active every day. My balance has improved along with the ability to walk faster and further.
I find my weekly coaching is immeasurable, it helps increase my confidence, keeps me accountable for my actions and I feel that the coaches are a huge part of my support network. I feel comfortable to be able to ask any questions regarding eating and exercise.
My Daughter and Husband have joined me in my healthier lifestyle, this also gives me a walking partner, I see this as a huge benefit. My muscle tone has improved. I am more organised with our weekly shopping and meal prep and the meals aren’t difficult so I am saving time.
It’s a fantastic program, it’s easy to follow and the whole program just makes sense.
My 3 top tips:
- Learn to be mindful while eating, sit and enjoy your meal.
- Follow the program, it works.
- Preparation for the program can be quick and as simple as you need it to be, but preparation is the key to being successful.
