I am a 42 year old, single mum of 2 lovely girls aged 8 and 11. I work part time in a shop and I have my own little business.
”You could say my life is quite hectic!”
I run my children round try to keep a clean and tidy house as well as cook healthy food, and go to the gym. Which leaves very little time for me.
2 years ago I went through a very difficult divorce, it left me demoralised with no self confidence and very sad. My eating habits were very poor and alcohol consumption very high,
”I couldn't see a way out of the fog known as my life!!”
A couple of good friends told me how great born2move was and suggested I contacted them. At first I didn't really get it all. My very good friend Nicola had been seeing Becci for a year or so and looked amazing, so in August 2012 I decided to give it a go and started with FITISM.
On my first session I was asked lots of questions about my diet, drinking and general lifestyle, some of which made me feel rather embarrassed as I started to realise how bad my life had got. My trainer Ali was professional and honest, he talked me through the nutrition programme advised me on supplements, and our training sessions started.
“I was very skeptical at first as I could not imagine life without wine, lattes and chocolate. However, FITISM’s encouragement was brilliant always supporting me, monitoring my progress and keeping me on track.”
I completed FITISM’s first nutrition course, no problems at all. i upgraded my membership to have more personal training sessions and began FITISM’s second nutrition course, and my life started to change in every way imaginable.
“My skin and eyes are bright and clear, my body shape has changed completely, my sleep pattern is a regular 8 hrs solid sleep and most importantly to me my confidence is growing.”
I had self belief my children also enjoyed their newly modified happy mum, FITISM has had a massive impact on our lives, each and everyone of the FITISM team has not only welcomed and encouraged me they have included my girls too, and as any parent will know that is hugely important.
”FITISM has been the most inspirational thing I've ever done.”
I've done many diets before, they work for a while, but i've never embarked on something that has changed my life as this has. Our 'diet' is very healthy as a family - we eat together and the same foods, the girls still have their treats but generally speaking they too enjoy trying new foods. I cook completely different foods and I love it, I often cook in batches and freeze foods for busy days so I've always got something to hand.
11 months on and I've had a couple of ups and downs, as always the team have been there encouraging me to get back on track, I'm not perfect in any way and I still enjoy a glass of wine or 2 but I also love the food I now eat, and the healthy feeling.
“Two years ago my life was a mess, today I'm the happiest I've ever been, I love my life. I couldn't ask for anything more.”
