15kg loss and half marathon*



In August 2012, on the recommendation of a friend I apprehensively walked into Vision Personal Training at Baulkham Hills. To be honest, I wasn't feeling excited or optimistic about joining. You see my track record with weight loss wasn't very good. I had struggled with trying to loose weight for around 15 years, the classic yo-yo dieter and I was now at my heaviest. I had previously signed up to all the well known weight loss programs I tried them all, some twice! With limited or short lived success. I decided I was willing to except that my days of being a size 8 - 10 were long gone and I should just embrace being a size 14 -16 it was easier that way, it was comfortable. But I was never ever happy about how I looked or how I felt. It took only a couple of weeks after I joined Vision to realise that this was going to be different. This was going to be the very last time I ever had to loose weight. For the first time in my life I have been educated in weight loss, nutrition and excerise. I feel so empowered by this knowledge, everything makes sense to me now and I know why no other program gave me long lasting results. The support I have received from all the trainers has been phenomenal , in particular my trainer Sebastian. What an unbelievable feeling it is to know you have someone in your corner 24/7. Someone who will guide you and wants you to be the best version of yourself, that believes in you even when you don't. I have made so many wonderful friends along my Vision journey some are more like family to me now. It's such a fantastic studio to be a part of. With Vision I have kept my weight off for nearly 3 years and have made training a part of my everyday life. I have found a love of events whether it be running, obstacle courses or adventure racing, I have competed in many. The two that stand out and I'm most proud of are the 2014 Tough Mudder and running the 2015 SMH Half Marathon. These are two events I said I would absolutely never attempt, just thinking about them would nauseated me with fear! Now that I have accomplished these massive goals, I can't wait to see what I'm capable of next. The journey continues ……
