I have lost weight, gone down a dress size and fitted into clothing that has been sitting in the wardrobe for years

“Back in 2012 I didn’t want to be a fat bridesmaid and was having a lot of stress in my personal life. I needed an escape and to use up some pent up energy. My friend advised me that the gym was a good way of helping with stress and also would help me lose weight.

 

I wanted to solve the problem because I was getting fatter and unhealthy as time went on. I was caring for my sick mum and was becoming increasingly tired due to being overweight. read more…

 

My friend asked me to be her bridesmaid and this kicked me into action when I saw myself in a dress. I didn’t want to look fat in her wedding pictures. It also kicked me into taking a look at my lifestyle, I was telling patients the risks of being overweight… but I was one of them. I thought to myself… How can I tell others about the dangers of obesity if I’m not following my own advice?

 

My biggest obstacle was my own mindset. I didn’t believe I could do it at first. I laughed when I first got told by Callum that he would help me lose weight and drop dress sizes. I thought at my age It wouldn’t happen. I was just happy to get a bit fitter

 

At first, it was hard to change what I ate and break all the bad habits I had become used to my whole life. Getting myself motivated to attend the gym at first was also hard, I always used that good old excuse that I don’t have enough time. I can only manage to get there once a week and other silly excuses. Over time Callum helped me to break these limiting beliefs about myself and my situation

 

I dropped from a size 16 boarding 18 to a size 10 to 12. I feel a lot healthier and fitter than I ever have been in my life. My mental health is excellent, and if I feel stressed at work where I would usually turn to food or even alcohol, I now turn to the gym. I walk into the gym in a bad mood and walk out feeling so much better than I did.

 

I’ve developed a great relationship with my body and with exercise and now train at UF multiple times a week. I absolutely love it and I’m so happy that I took the plunge and made the decision all those years ago.”
