” I haven’t always lived a healthy lifestyle. The life I live now was a CHOICE. “

MOTIVATION TO CHANGE

I wouldn’t say that I had a particular ‘a-ha’ moment that made me notice my unhealthy weight or lifestyle as I’ve been overweight since I was about seven years old.

I was always teased at school and never did any sports as I was scared of being last or failing to do an activity due to me being overweight. At one stage I actually weighed 90kg, but managed to get down to 80kg at the age of 17. It was somewhere during this stage of my life that I just decided that I had enough of being overweight.
I didn’t want to be laughed at anymore and I also wanted to be able to fit into nice clothes.

I hated being overweight and I hated feeling self-conscious about it all the time.

MAKING THE SHIFT

I really wanted to lose weight, but I wanted to lose it in a healthy way. No quick fixes. I wanted to change my habits & eating habits. I wanted to change my life & be able to stick to it long-term.

I woke up one morning and started dieting. I started at the beginning of June 2006 and five months later I had lost 20kg.

I’m the type of person that when I put my mind on something, I do it –
I don’t think twice about it and I don’t look back.

Losing the weight has changed everything about my life. I love the fact that I now live a healthy life. I love how exercise makes my body feel and look.

Going through my transformation has made me realise that I’m passionate about helping other women who may be struggling with the same issues as I did. I want women to realise their worth and I want them to be able to honestly say that they love themselves.
