Healthy Women of Blackwood 2022 ‘Inspiring Story of the Year’ Winner

Lost 32.4kg and 39.5% of her body weight in 12 months

My decision to start a healthier lifestyle and lose weight began when I had seen a couple of photos of myself at an event that I had attended. My thoughts of being fit and healthy for my daughters up coming wedding was also a factor, and of course the real possibility of getting Covid 19 and my health being severely impacted due to being obese was a scary thought.

I had been a member of several other gyms over the past 15 years and quite enjoyed going to gym, although one my last experiences had not been a positive one.

I have been able to lose some weight going to gym but it has always found its way back to me.

I had seen an advertisement on Facebook about Healthy Inspirations and they were offering a membership promotion, this happened to be ‘just at the right time.’

I had not heard of H I before so I was a little intrigued to find out more. I had spoken to a work college about H I and she said that she was a member and had lots of good things to say about the program. Further investigation found another social media post with a success story of another work colleague, and so this was the start of my journey.

After nearly 12 months with Healthy Inspirations my general well being has grown immeasurably. My thoughts on exercise and my diet has totally transformed’ which has made me a happier and healthier version of myself.

I am happy and am feeling more confident in myself, the way I look and feel, my ability to exercise and enjoying life. Especially buying a new wardrobe.

The weekly check ins with your health coach certainly help with your confidence to know that you are achieving your goals, along with some guidance and assistance when it’s needed.

I am living a healthier happier lifestyle along with the rest of my family. My weight loss journey has also had a very positive impact on my family.

Healthy Inspirations Blackwood is a fantastic place to be, the coaches and the other members are welcoming and always supportive.

My 3 top tips are:

  • Be committed and follow the program, it works.
  • Make your meal plan at the start of the week.
  • Exercise regularly.
