How Naomi Lost 1.5 stone and 6.5 inches (without it feeling hard)

So here’s what Naomi said after just 12 weeks (Naomi explains how she did it in the video here: watch the video above) 

 
“So far in 12 weeks I’ve lost a stone and half and 6 and a half inches off my waist
which is massive for me.
And I feel 100% better.
My skin, my hair…everything.
But it’s not been hard to change.
Every other diet I’ve done, you can’t eat this or that.
But now if I want a drink or I’m eating out
I can cater my day around it.
I’m really enjoying the exercise sessions.
Which is something I never thought I’d say.
I’ve tried Weight Watchers and Slimming World before. And I lose weight.
But I don’t get that energy from that I get from the exercise.
And it’s making me better in how I feel in myself from doing the exercise.
I’m eating differently.
I’m not hungry.
which is big for me.
As that was my problem.
my problem was snacking”
 
Well done, Naomi 🙂 Awesome work!!
You can check out how Naomi looked after just 4 weeks in above


But the thing is…

Everywhere you look, the fitness industry litters Before and After photos – used as a way

to help others believe in the relative companies products and services.

Slimming World.
Herbal Life
Slim Fast.
Cambridge Diet.
All endorsed by slimmer looking celebrities
For sure, they’re eye catching

But I kind of think that we’ve all become a bit bored of them…
They no longer have the impact that they used to.
I think that one of the reasons is that anyone can download google images of a before and after story and claim it as
their own. 

we do see lots of amazing transformations in our Programmes in Marlborough and Burbage (just like these ladies here – it’s what we specialise in after all 

—> specifically for ladies over 40 years old.

But their story is nearly ALWAYS more powerful.

Of course, a picture can paint a 1000 words etc.. (as Naomi’s does above)

But you can’t beat a STORY, right?
Which brings me on to Naomi’s story…
Naomi saw one of our adverts last year and having got to a point in her life where

she knew she needed to make a change for HERSELF

she reached out and joined our Programme.

Her her worries.

Could she do it? If these ladies here can do it, surely I can?

Is this legit?​​​​​ 
 
She had tried other stuff in the past – the usual things (as she said…Slimming World / Weight Watchers / classes).

Lost weight before..

But never quite had the energy she now has from the exercise.


So just​​ a couple of points that I would love to draw your attention to in the post.
Although the weight lost sounds impressive [and it is] –
it works out
at LESS than 2lbs per week on average….

​​which many people would give up on after a 
while…
This type of result is only achievable by being consistent.
Consistent positive weekly habits regarding nutrition and exercise.

We provide a personalised and totally flexible nutrition system to help out…

So you can still eat the foods you and your family love – even with a sweet tooth.

Now as much as losing this weight and dropping a couple of dress sizes is great…

The knock on effect, as Naomi mentions, is how happy she feels.

Confidence, fitness and energy.

It’s an amazing feeling.

And – for sure – everything is just easier when you have more energy and confidence.

Eating healthily 

the motivation​​

Saying yes to social events and the things you want to do…

Wearing clothes you want to wear (rather than ones that hide the bits we don’t like )

Sleep

Speaking up in meetings at work…

etc.

Naomi also mentions about the exercise.

As Naomi said:

“I’m really enjoying the exercise sessions.

Which is something I never thought I’d say.”


Unfortunately, most ladies come to me with the ‘experience’ of exercise is something that is boring
or intimidating.

Classes can be monotonous and you can easily get lost amongst a large group where no one even knows your name and checks up on you if you don’t turn up or go through a hard time.

And we’ve all felt the eye balls staring at the back of our heads when walking into
a brand new gym…not really knowing where anything is.

To summarise then.

What I believe to be the key ingredients to success to any transformation:

✅ Commit to 3 exercise sessions per week (these can be as short as 5 minutes…1>0)

✅ Commit to making positive changes to nutrition without giving up the things you love.

✅ Do something that is FUN.

✅ Do something where you feel comfortable.

✅ Don’t try and figure this stuff out yourself – choose something where you are supported / encouraged and can get questions answered.

✅ Set a goal but focus more on the daily habits that will help you achieve that goal (this is what we do with the areas of Food, Fitness and Focus)
 
You DO NOT have to be special.
 
There is nothing heroic about the above.

Anyone can do it – if they want to.

Naomi definitely wanted to.
