I first started attending my local Wellness Club in Kensington, and entered my 1st weight-loss challenge in March 2008. I had been attending weight watchers for 2 years and lost 1 stone, however I felt that I had gone as far as I could at weight watchers and needed a fresh look at my weight-loss goals.
When I first attended the wellness club I was shocked to find out that even though I had lost 1 stone, my body fat was 49.5% and still at very dangerous levels. The coach in the wellness club explained how throughout the 12 week challenge I would learn all about my body, food, exercise nutrition and lifestyle and I how could lose body fat in a healthy nutritious way, and keep it off forever.
My starting weight in March 08 was 16.10st, and in November 08, I was 13.12st so in 8 months I have lost just under 3 stone, which I am very excited about. I have more energy, feel fantastic, and have learnt some very valuable lessons on healthy weight loss diet and nutrition.
During this time by body fat has gone from a very unhealthy 49.5% to 39.3% and I am very nearly in the healthy BMI and body fat % range. My visceral fat has lowered from 15 to 7, so I know I am getting healthier and healthier every week I attend. I have also lost a total of 75.5cm of body fat from my waist, bust, hip, thigh and upper arm. I owe it all to the wellness club and my fantastic coach who has helped and supported me every step of the way. I have met lots of new friends in the club, and we all support each-other every week.
