I had been overweight since high school and had tried on and off for 10 years to do something about it. I needed someone to be accountable to who wouldn't let me use excuses or fall back into my old habits. Starting at Vision was surprisingly positive for me and so far I have lost around 37kg and had a massive increase in confidence in myself and my abilities. Instead of wearing orthotics I can now choose anything and not have to worry about feet or back pain, instead of being frustrated that I could only shop at plus size stores now there is too much choice. I'm no longer embarrassed for my partner to be seen with me in public because I feel 'normal' for the first time in my adult life. I don't feel like a hypocrite when discussing healthy lifestyles with the children I work for and I finally feel I can be a positive role model for them. I'm really proud of the person I have become.
