43, senior civil servant working on education policy.
I have 2 grown up kids who I am devoted too. They are my number 1 priority but
that meant I gave up on me to look after them.
Non working time was for them….
I was member of a gym… Paid a fortune weekly to see a Personal Trainer,
and have been part of yoyo dieting with lots of comfort eating
as I really didn’t have any space to deal with me!
I’ve constantly focused on helping others and was too exhausted to
deal with my emotions!
My daughter got into med school and rather than being elated I fast
forwarded 6 years to her graduation and was worried at how obese I
would be and if I would fit in one seat 🙁 Sad but true.
Before seeing Michael I was scared. Totally scared, I really felt ugly
ungainly worthless and I truly didn’t think anything would help!!
But regardless I came along.
I thought I did ok, then I realised I had a long journey to go.
I Met some amazing people even on my 1st day and came back for the 2nd.
My diet was so bad where I really lacked nutrients I actually threw up.
It was a kick up the bum for me!
But MG is amazing. Calm patient knowledgeable and guided me on track.
Camp makes the days stresses worthwhile. I live a million miles away… But I feel
more alive after a session than at any other time!
My skin is better, I have more energy, I am more alert and I deliver more at work and home… It’s my time for me!
I don’t need to comfort eat or push the feelings down, I have my friends
at the session and in the online group for support.
I psyche myself up even to master ground star jumps but the feeling when
I finish them is just true elation…it’s my feel good factor!
Over past month have lost 23lbs and 11.5 inches!!!
Still some way to go but it’s just super super super good to be alive
and flourishing! Started at size 18 now a curvy 12!!!
