Just wanted to share a story with you about one of the ladies at my Ladies Only Size 16+ Club.
Monday was the last workout before Christmas and we had a weigh-in… the results were amazing!
We also had a good chat about nutrition and health in general.
One of the ladies, started to tell me a story about why she joined the Ladies Only Size 16+ Club.
Keep reading, this will amaze you!
I’m not going to name her in case she doesn’t want me to…
But ‘D’ had been to the doctors because she had high blood pressure and had been put on medication to help lower it.
She was also told by the doctor that she needed to lose weight.
So she started Weight Watchers – 5 years ago!
Her weight went up and down. Lost some, gained some, lost some, gained some – for 5 years! Jeeeeeeezus! 5 Years!
She even tried going to weight watchers in other areas in case it was just a bad group in her area!
But, the results were the same – yo-yo weight loss.
Anyway, the doctor told her that she needed to increase her activity levels in order to lower her high blood pressure.
So she chose the Ladies Only Size 16+ Club.
I guess it was because she felt more comfortable knowing she would be in a group of women that were all a similar size and fitness level.
Anyway, D came along to the 16+ Club and she took on board all of my advice….
- She worked out with me once a week at the 16+ Club.
- She increased her activity levels away from the class (with workouts that I set to do at home)
- She made small changes to her diet.
- She drank more water.
- Plus other little things that I teach at the 16+ Club.
And after 2 months of the Ladies Only Size 16+ Club….
She went back to the doctors to get her blood pressure taken…
Bet you can’t guess what happened??? 😉
Her blood pressure was back in the NORMAL category.
She had tried for 5 years —– and within 2 months she managed to get her blood pressure under control!
She also lost a stone in weight.
I was so pleased for her, the hard work that she put into the workouts and the changes she made to her diet has really paid off!
But it got me thinking….
Lots of people get too obsessed with ‘that number on the scales’
What about all the other health benefits?
- Controlling Blood Pressure
- Controlling Cholesterol Levels
- Improving Energy
- Improved Skin and Hair
- Reducing Stress
Those things are much more important than the weight on the scales!
P.S. The Ladies Only Size 16+ Club restarts on Monday 11th January.
4 spaces of the 8 have already been taken and paid for. If you would like one of the remaining places go here…
