Chocolate is not the enemy on weight loss journey
This week’s inspiring article is about a client of mine, Bella, who initially joined my Wellness Membership with her main goal being weight loss and how her health journey has evolved since she started.
Bella had always been able to keep the weight off, even after having her . However, in the recent years she noticed her weight slowly creep up and wanted to do something about it.
Bella is a busy working mum and she had looked for programs that would help her achieve her weight loss goals. But, was not able to find something that catered to her dietary requirements, or some programs were , making them unsuitable for her.

She had been following me for some time on social media and when she came across my program, she was interested by the fact that it was a non-restrictive, affordable program, that catered to all dietary requirements. She had some questions, so we set up an initial call. During the call, I assured Bella that she would not need to give up her favourite treat, chocolate, and that she would not have to cook separate meals for her family. So, she decided to give it a try and sign up!
Being part of the program, she has learnt so many different things at a pace that worked for her given her busy schedule. She now realises that it is never just “one thing” that will make you see results; the journey to getting healthy is made up of several small steps and changes.
Has more energy
Lost 1 stone
Clothes fit better
Feels good from within
Is more confident
She has come a long way and because the changes were small and made gradually, they have now become a habitual part of her day. This makes her feel confident that she will be able to successfully sustain this in the future.
