My weight has fluctuated a lot throughout my adult life. Ive counted calories on and off for decades with varying degrees of success.
I could probably accurately tell you the calories in just about any food, but calories was where my knowledge of nutrition ended.
Then I had two babies in 14 months.
With no time between pregnancies for my body (or mind) to recover, by the time my second daughter arrived I didn’t even feel like myself.
Surrounded by loving and supportive people who always told me “be kind to yourself, you look great for having two kids!”, I just plodded along, trying to accept that this new, larger, softer, post baby body was as good as it would get!
But I didn’t feel good, my confidence was low and I didn’t want to accept that looking good caveated by ‘for someone who has been put through the wringer’ was a compliment I would receive forever more!
I reached out to Martin to go All In for 12 weeks after seeing on Instagram that he was taking on new clients.
After our initial chat I was delighted when he said that he would work with me and that’s where the hard work began.
The whole journey has been a lifestyle overhaul. I expected to be starving myself, as that’s all I’d ever known when trying to lose weight but this was different. I was eating, and I was satisfied…It was a revelation for me!
I followed my programme meticulously and consulted with Martin over how to maintain my progress whilst on my holiday to France or on the odd special outing with my friends.
I found that Martins approach delivered on results and flexibility. What’s more, Martin focuses a lot on education and so I definitely feel assured that after my TeamTank journey ends, I will be fully equipped with the knowledge and resources I need to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Yes, I’m still a busy mum, but now I prioritise some time for my own health & wellbeing and many of the changes I’ve made include benefits for my children too - getting outdoors and being more active together, eating more nutritious food and the biggest improvement - having a happier mum!
I’ve loved being part of the TeamTank group which is an entire support network of likeminded people who have helped and encouraged me along the way.
Thank you TeamTankers! I’m excited to be continuing my TeamTank journey for another 12 weeks and seeing what sort of shape I can be in for my birthday which conveniently falls at the end of this block!”
