Growing up I was always unhappy with my weight. I was never so called small but not too large either as I played high level Netball.
When I met my now husband at 16 my weight from then on slowly increased (yes i blame you Adam!!). I always tried different so called diets but never managed to shift weight and was always told i was doing something not right with the food.
I think I was 20 when I had had enough... i had heard of a program called sureslim which is all about the food your prepare and they guide you through an eating plan.
It was obviously extremely tough to start with but I then became completely obsessed with it and was losing weight weekly.
Over the next 8 mths I stuck at it hard and lost a whopping 30kgs....
All this just in time for my 21st Birthday and then my engagement to Adam.
I exercised alot during the 8mths but my advice to anyone wanting to shift a few kilos.... it is all what you put in your mouth.
Yes exercise is important and even a daily walk etc is worth it but the food is the main thing... Change that and you are on the way to success...
I am proud of how committed I was and it has well and truly helped me to be the person I am today. Being ashamed of how you look defiantly holds you back and making the change has made me a happier and healthier person.
Here are a few photos of the before and after....
And this has now motivated me to lose a few of the kilos I don't want now... Who is with me???... lets say goodbye to them for summer :)
