I wouldn’t call this before and after, but I’d call it before and current. I still have a fair way to go but I know I’m going to get there I’m 29 years old and a mother of 3 living in Batemans bay. I started at 184kg and have currently lost 39.9kg so far!
I have always been overweight and had unhealthy habits. After each child, the weight would pile on. But more and more lately I had been struggling to keep up with work and my kids on a daily basis. I’d come home from work and not be able to stand up for the rest of the night. This often meant ordering take out for dinner and was just getting worse. I couldn’t do many things that I would like to do. We had planned a family holiday to the Gold Coast which I was so excited for until I realised that I didn’t have any nice clothes to take with me and that I wouldn’t be able to go on any rides with the kids. They would miss out on so much because of my weight. I’d often think about this and be sad about this while eating junk food. Constantly saying I need to stop this. I definitely ate out of boredom!! And I used excuses such as you only live once, or as long as I’m happy it’s ok, or this is just who I am.
I had tried various diets before and have been going to the gym for a few years. But wasn’t making any progress. My husband heard of the man shake through work and wanted to try it. I jumped online to order for him and found the family pack and got excited and placed an order. Something in my mind just clicked the moment I started. I was finally in the right mindset to do it right this time. In the first week, I felt amazing! My energy levels had already lifted and my motivation was high. I started going back to my gym regularly and didn’t skip any days.
Over the next few weeks, I even started adding in a short session before I started work. I can’t believe how much my lifestyle has changed in the last 5 months. I eat healthily, I don’t snack when I’m bored I look forward to every one of my shakes. I train at my gym 5 days a week and I always get my 10k steps in. I have so much energy and I’m just happy all the time. Now when I finish work, I’ll do some kind of activity with the kids, cook dinner, clean up, even go out to the shops. I just feel amazing. I still have a long way to go but My determination is so high and I’m so excited for what’s coming next.
I feel like there is no right and wrong with this. You just tailor it to suit your individual needs. I was in no way expecting what would happen when I found the lady shake! I will never look back!
