Centre: Chermside, QLD
Weight Loss: 26kg
Time: 11 Months
I have always struggled with my weight and for the most part of my life, been overweight. I was unsettled and a big comfort eater, I lived alone for a long time and takeaway just always seemed like the easier option. Being overweight was a daily struggle, I lacked energy but more importantly, I lacked confidence. I started shying away from attending social events because I just wasn’t comfortable putting on some nice clothes and being seen in public – life became a trip to work and back and the rest of the time I hid in the comfort of my own home where I knew no one could judge me.
My ‘aha’ moment came shortly after I met, my now, husband. We had a wedding to attend for a friend of his and that meant I needed to go shopping to buy a dress to wear – I hadn’t been clothes shopping in a long time! I picked out a dress and was horrified when I realised that I needed to purchase it in a size 18. We had a photo taken at home before we left for the wedding and my heart broke when I saw it – I had let myself go way too far and that was the moment I knew I had to turn it all around. That was in October 2016. I tried dieting on my own for a few months but then Christmas hit and it all went back on. My partner then proposed to me in January 2017 and that was when I got serious about my weight loss and contacted Jenny Craig for help, I’ve never looked back!
My experience on the Jenny Craig program was nothing short of amazing. The girls were supportive and motivational but also firm and honest without ever making me feel judged. I had a huge journey ahead of me but they kept it fun and helped me to just take one step at a time without letting me lose site of the end goal. They gave me so much flexibility when I felt certain things weren’t working for me and they supported me through trying new things and then guided me off on my own to continue the journey by myself.
My life has completely turned around since losing my weight. I have a confidence I hadn’t seen in over 10 years, I have more energy, I sleep better and I love my life again, I’m back to just being happy! I got married on April 26 this year and for the first time in a very long time, I’m not scared of seeing the photos of myself!start your journey now
