I started gaining weight 10 years ago, steadily increasing after the birth of my son. Despite a few attempts at losing weight, it was always short lived with bursts of healthy eating and exercise followed by inactivity and poor eating habits. I suffered from depression and lethargy. Despite instilling healthy eating in my son, I knew I was setting a bad example and not being the positive role model I should be. Even though I knew what I had to do I felt trapped by my unhealthy habits. I decided to join Vision Personal Training because I knew I couldn't achieve lasting change on my own and that I needed help to change my unhealthy programme.
My initial week was disappointing until I embraced the changes I had to make and got totally on board with the programme. The 9 Week Weight Loss Challenge focused my determination and weekly goal setting was a key in taking it one step at a time. I couldn't have done it without my trainer Josh who really understood my issues and what motivated me and both pushed me and supported me when I needed it most. The constant reassurance and camaderie from not only my trainer but the Vision Personal Training team made me feel part of something positive and actually enjoy the journey to good health. I have so much energy and my mood is so much improved. The best reward of all is making my son proud of me.
