My name is Lizzie, I am 20 years old and
currently working as a hotel receptionist, this is my story.
When I was at school I was quite a heavy girl and I
didn’t like it, so I started exercising and eating properly. I went down to a dress size 10, it was great,
I was confident and happy at that time.
In 2004 I was a very fit girl, training at
a kickboxing club four times a week with a good job. Then everything changed for different
reasons. Last year was quite difficult to deal with and I got stressed
out, not only with my weight but I was also getting turned down for every job that I
applied for and I felt useless.
Without realising it I had continued to
put weight on, I felt that I was going back to how I used to be. So I tried going to the gym and controlling my
diet but it just didn’t work. I saw the 8 week
challenge in the paper and decided to do it with my mum.
Throughout the 8 weeks I feel my
highlights and achievements were meeting all of my 4 and 8 week goals. I worked hard and know I will continue with this
healthy lifestyle no matter what.
The trainers at New Image are extremely helpful and
it didn’t feel as if I was being bullied in to exercise instead I felt advised and
encouraged, after all that is what I was there for.
I now feel much more confident in the
clothes I wear and I now have the motivation to train for the Great north run and eventually
the London marathon. I would
advise anybody that is feeling stuck in a rut whether it be weight gain or any other problems
to start training, this will give them something to aim for. I thought that because I
hadn’t achieved anything in the last year I had to prove to myself that I can do something in
my life and I did, anyone can too.
Don’t say I’ll do it tomorrow if it’s
really bothering you, start today. It takes hard work and dedication but if you really want it you’ll get
