I have struggled with my weight since I turned 15. Once I reached an accountable age, I tried Weight Watchers and Slimming World many times and it worked while I was going each week, but once I stopped the weight would pile back on, so I needed to find a way to have a healthy eating regime that was both realistic and manageable. Being a single mother of two, I had a habit of picking, eating my children’s left over dinner and even emotional and stress eating.

Turning thirty was a time of change for me. Time to start taking care of myself and educating myself. As luck would have it, that was the year I met CJ KEEP FIT and she did an amazing job at helping me to understand; I can do more, I can push further. I am strong in body as well as in my mind and I should stop saying “I can’t” do something, because I can do anything I put my mind to. I started by taking part in classes and then asked her to be my personal trainer.

CJ KEEP FIT has helped me by looking at my eating habits and helping me to find healthy alternatives, giving me the knowledge to make healthier options and pointing me in the right direction to educate myself on nutrition. Making my life healthier has also made my boy’s lives healthier and I have given them the knowledge to make healthier food choices and they even take part in my home workouts and encourage me to workout and eat healthy when I am having an off day.

Since I started attending sessions with CJ KEEP FIT I have lost three and a half stone, dropped three dress sizes and managed to maintain it. It has been an incredible journey and I am seeing the changes in my body and my eating choices.
