How did you feel before joining Vision Personal Training Castle Hill?
Before I joined Vision Personal Training, I had become anti-social due to my weight gain. I was embarrassed of the way I looked which made me a very angry person with in myself. I lost my confidence and zest for life. I was basically hiding and in denial of how much weight I had put on. I felt disappointed to myself. My attitude was generally negative in life. I knew deep down what I needed to do but always found excuses. I used to be that person who was always positive, fun, energetic and mentally strong.
What was the trigger for you to join?
I was at a charity ball and was surrounded by slimmer women beautifully dressed. I said to myself that slim woman used to be me. This made me very emotional and sad. I came home that evening looking in the mirror and said to myself, "What happen to you…Mangala do something about your weight - that's enough. You are fat and you've been fat enough for too long."
What results have you achieved?
I've had the most amazing results since I've been at Vision. I've lost 30kilos, I can run now without feeling breathless. I've regained my confidence again and I'm full of life, full of energy. I feel like I'm in my 20's I've achieved the 1504 Sydney Tower Stair Climb and never imagined myself to complete the 9km Blackmores run. I've regained myself again.
How do you feel now since achieving your goals?
I'm feeling on top of the world now. It's changed my attitude too. "I can do and achieve anything I want in life." I've become that positive person again, particularly with my family circle and friends. Life is exciting again.
