So, this is my story it’s not one of an overnight success but more a rollercoaster ride of trials, errors and a collection of small milestones along the way. Over several years of trying to lose weight, and I’ve tried a lot of different weight loss diets and even the odd gimmicks! Here’s just a handful of things I’ve tried: Weight Watchers, Protein World Slender Blend, Joe Wicks 90 Day Plan, Weight Loss Pills, Juicing etc. They all worked for a month or so, I just didn’t find them sustainable. I’d say I was your typical “yo-yo dieter” lacking in any substantial long-term results.
About six months after having my son I joined David Lloyd, brought myself a Fitbit and downloaded My Fitness Pal – I was going to try my hand at calorie counting (I didn’t really understand it but thought why not?) with a mix of exercise alongside it, for the first time in a long time I was actually heading in the right direction of weight loss. However, I was only really comfortable using the Elliptical Cross Trainer, I was scared of the weight machines, I found the thought of classes intimidating and the free weight area? Not a fucking chance. Everyone always seemed to know what they were doing, and I just… didn’t! Weight loss became non-existent, I spent a lot of money on coffee and over the summer months, I got a wonderful tan sitting by the outdoor pool and reading! During the summer of 2017 my mum introduced me to Angi (Get Peachy) and nearly three years later I haven’t looked back.
