Deb writes: “ I weighed around 20kgs heavier than I was three years ago, my heaviest weight. I also found I wasn’t managing my stress at work and I was feeling constantly tired and lacking motivation. I had a career that was quite challenging and I would often get to the end of the day and realize I had not eaten and would grab the nearest available food to eat. There was also a constant stream of morning tea, cakes and junk food. I started to feel my weight gain in my clothes, in my energy levels and the things I loved like tennis and netball, I found myself feeling very heavy and my extra weight I could feel in my day to day movement.
So it was time to take back control of my health and my body. I saw Top Coach had late sessions at 6.30 pm and they also incorporated lots of variety in their sessions. So that’s when I signed up and was looking forward to the challenge and made my health a priority. Chris and Leisa kept me motivated and reminded me to slow down and get it right before just going full steam ahead. Then, when I was getting into a good rhythm of work, healthy eating and exercise, I had an injury to both my hands. I was feeling very deflated and at that time was ready to give up. I received constant emails from Chris and Leisa with encouragement and Brooke and Katherine adopted each of the classes where required. It was still a struggle to get motivated and I was in pain but I still showed up. I was kind to myself in this challenge and still had good results. Top Coach was supportive but also gave me the push I needed when I was struggling. The challenge was just the start and I am ready for the next one to continue to work at the 20kgs I need to lose. I am feeling fitter, stronger and healthier and managing my day to day stress much better. Thanks, Top Coach!
