Lost 15kg, (and 22cm from her waist alone)

I am in my mid 50s and for more than 20 years my weight had gradually crept up and up. I didn’t like the way I looked but I also didn’t want to do anything about it. I had been borderline diabetic for a number of years and last year was advised by my doctor that I needed to go on medication. When I went to get the prescription filled, there was no medication available. People were panic buying metformin.  I decided there and then that if I couldn’t get the medication, I would need to make the changes myself. Yes, it took a pandemic to get me to change my life. 

So 12 months ago I made a phone call to Ally at Healthy Inspirations Frewville, and 3 days later I was sitting in front of her discussing a plan that would change my life.

The first 3 weeks were the hardest. Changing many years of eating habits was challenging however I was really well supported with recipes, food lists and Ally at the end of the phone.

After 3 weeks I fell into an easy food routine, and started going to the gym. Since then I have continued with the gym regime (two visits a week) and my food plans have become more flexible and varied as I lost weight and I am proud to say that after 9 months I achieved my goal weight, losing more that 15kg. I have since remained under my goal weight. My dress size has gone from a size 16 to a size 12. I have lost a total of 22cm from my waist. My blood tests show that I am no longer diabetic. I can look at myself in photos and feel proud of what I have become. Thank you Ally and the Healthy’s Team. The desire to make these changes came from within, but I really couldn’t have done it without you.
