It wasn't until I saw them that I realised, that something had to change. I was heading to a place where I was likely to feel older than I should, fat, frumpy, unhappy, much heavier than I should be for the long-term, this was no longer a blip ... yes I felt rubbish!!
Now I know that we all tend to be more critical of ourselves than others but for me, this wasn't being critical this was me looking at myself for the first time in a long time.
I had to take control and get my shizzle together!
How could I have let myself get to this point?
How did I miss the signs?
How could my husband find me attractive?
How could my clients take me seriously?
How could I take myself seriously?
This was a huge revelation to me, thank goodness for photos right?
They don't lie ...
So as soon as we got home, I took the first step, took a photo of myself in my underwear (yes that was hard) then I found a photo of myself that made me feel proud (I was younger, care free and happy) and then I started doing loads of research into how to shift the flab in a healthy, sustainable way. I was tempted to starve myself but I knew that wasn't the answer.
You see I got to the point where I realised the extra 2.5 stone I was carrying was holding me back, I had no energy, my sex drive was non-existent, I was heavier on the scales than ever before, and if I was really honest, my health and fitness was spiralling out of control, the girl that had become physically and mentally old, that had aged before her time, was looking back at me in those photos.
She had to go!!
So my mission, my commitment to myself (in my early 40's) was to feel young, sexy and fun again!
I set about on my journey to get my body back, to get my health under control and to take back my time because I realised I wasn't looking after me. The lessons I've learned along the way are the things I share with you. The formula I've discovered, the series of steps I took to get myself back are exactly what I share and do you know what? If I can do this so can you! There is nothing special about me and I know we share a drive and determination to get there.
I know I can help you get your body back, get your life back and I would love to show you how I have done it. I have helped hundreds of women just like you do exactly the same. If we can do it so can you.
