Lost 37kgs and 107.5cm.

I am a Scout leader who loves getting involved and doing all the kids do, too. I have always been an active person but have struggled with my weight my whole life.

About 2 years ago we gathered at our Scout Den for a formal occasion; on my Scout shirt went but I was unable to do up half the buttons, so off I went sucking it in. Whilst at the event, a young child pointed out my buttons were undone (I am a real stickler for wearing the uniform correctly). I was so embarrassed and avoided any other occasions for a few months. I was struggling to get out of bed. I was miserable.

In July last year, after my GP said we needed to have that weight talk, I went in and enrolled with Healthy Inspirations.  Within a few weeks I was feeling so much better in my body and my mind and as time went on, I’m more active than ever!!! I have more energy than I often know what to do with!

I can’t thank the coaches at Lower Hutt Healthy’s enough for helping me regain my life back. The support is essential, they celebrate the successful days and motivate the not so good days.

Today’s the day, you’ll feel better every day after!

My top tip:

Each day is part of your journey, some days will be great, some days not. Don’t give up after a small hiccup, write it down, and continue the day on plan. You’ll get results!!
