This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering.
Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier.
As soon as I started it – I knew it was for me, it wasn’t a fad or a gimmick. It made me exercise more without even realising it. It made me feel so positive, it didn’t feel like a big effort like other programmes. It felt simple and over the course of it, it all trickles down and you start to feel so positive, more relaxed, happy and less stressed
There has definitely been a noticeable shift in my outlook, approach and behavior since I’ve started the programme. I feel encouraged to keep going, play to my strengths and to find solutions to the identified issues and be more positive overall. I think most people would benefit from evaluating their behaviours, mind set and skills in this way to reach their lifestyle goals, regardless of whether or not they are weight loss related. Most programmes out there in the food/fitness/lifestyle industry focus on the specifics of what you need to do/eat to achieve your goal and completely ignore addressing the underlying mind set, goal setting and skill building, I feel there is definitely a need for your combined approach to promote sustainable goal attainment.
It’s really been a light bulb revelation that doing things I don’t enjoy or that feel like punishment for quick results is only going to be detrimental to my mind-set, progress and maintenance in the long run. Starting as you mean to go on is a good way to describe it!
