Lost 10.9kgs in Beat the Winter Blues 2022 12 week Transformation

I came to Healthy Inspirations at the end of 2020 after having been a member 10 years earlier and knowing the program works!

I am approaching menopause age and was keen to lose weight prior to that time, knowing it gets harder later on to move those kilos.

I lost 5kg when I started late 2020 but then made no progress at all for a bit over a year. I was lacking motivation and the weight wasn’t coming off.

As a result, I joined the 12 week program, through some good encouragement from the 6am Frewville crew, and it was exactly what I needed. Through the program I dropped another 5.8kg and feel great. I achieved all the goals I set for myself in the program and more.

I am now only 4.5kg from my overall goal weight and am motivated to continue on.

I had done the program before and I knew it was an incredibly supportive team and no judgement on where you are in life and what you can or can’t achieve, just encouragement.

I am much fitter and stronger than I was before. I can easily complete long hikes with my husband which I struggled with previously.

I need the monitoring that comes from the weekly coaching otherwise I won’t stick to the plan. It is great to have the chat and focus on the successes.

I am sleeping better and don’t have as many mood swings. I certainly have more energy and less cravings.

Do it! It works!

My 3 top tips:

  1. I am not good at planning or food prep so after speaking with coach Ally I organised home delivered low carb meals. This works for me and takes away the need of thinking about what food I need to buy, and stops me ordering takeaway.
  2. I signed up for the 10,000 steps a day challenge in August for breast cancer, and then for 10,000 steps a day in September for STEPtember. I have a desk job and may only normally achieve 3000 steps, so this has made a big difference for me.
  3. Go to the same consistent classes so you get to know the other ladies at the Centre you attend. This kept me accountable for turning up, and they are all so encouraging which helps motivate me to keep going.
