On Monday 18th April 2016 I started my lean journey by doing The Body Coach SSS 90 day Plan. I completed it with nearly a stone lost and about 18". A year on and I am still eating sensibly and exercising 3-4 times per week. I have improved slightly on my results and I am maintaining.
I am so happy I did this. I am so pleased that I got started properly. I feel so much better about myself and I am much more confident. I am looking forward to wearing my bikini in July and I love that I can now wear size 8-10 clothes again comfortably and not have to search around for lose styles that 'skim' my tummy.
What have I learnt?
Sometimes I honestly can't believe I did this. That I started a lean journey, completed it and achieved great results then decided to make it a lifestyle! Really!? Pinch me! For so long I wanted to do this but now I have actually done it and I still doubt myself sometimes, it's hard to see what others see, which is a petite 50 year old woman who looks pretty good for her age!
My advice to others - if you really want it then anyone can do it. I admit I didn't have much to lose but it still took some determination to stick to it. I have learnt so much about health and nutrition along the way. And I am learning more with my 8020 Lifestyle plan from Life Changing Fitness that I am currently doing. It is teaching me all about a balanced approach that can be sustainable forever.
