I decided to join Vision Engadine just on 4 years ago; it wasn't an easy decision to make as I was an obese person and thought I can't make a change to my body. It was only ever a dream I had! I had serious health problems; I avoided looking at myself in the mirror as I hated what I saw and was sure everyone I met did too. I definitely didn't have any self confidence in myself and always tried to become part of the furniture when out so people didn't see me.
My journey so far, is far from complete and has hit many large potholes on the way but I have learnt to dust myself off and just get back into the training and of course doing the dreaded food diary all the time, whereas the old me would most probably have thrown my hands up in the air saying it's too hard and given up.
My trainers, the seminars and group training classes have all help me to expand my knowledge on food or training technics and kept me accountable to myself and not to worry about what others think of me. I haven't always enjoyed training, sometimes making excuses why not to go but have always turned up and given my best.
I have now gained confidence and the knowledge that I can do anything that I set my mind to even with obstacles popping up in my life.
I will win this battle this time so watch this space.
