A sedentary job and busy lifestyle meant that I gained weight and the healthy activities I used to enjoy went by the wayside. Without any conscious decision on my part, my diet and exercise routine had stopped being a priority, my husband had fallen into the same pattern and there never seemed to be time to sort it out. I asked Anne-Marie to help us lose weight and plan our way ahead.
Anne-Marie worked with both my husband and I on an individual level and then together at times. I’m a vegetarian and I love being active, fit and strong. When I completed my food diary, Anne-Marie reviewed my nutrition. I wasn’t eating enough of the right foods and as a result my motivation and energy, to do the things I love, was low.
Anne-Marie’s way of working was like having a transformation coach check in regularly. It was an incredibly positive experience. I changed my diet, it wasn’t difficult. My energy increased, I started running and cycling again. I lost the weight, we both did but better than that was the mind-set change that happened in the house. The energy, support and motivation increased. I have the tools to continue to work on personal goals. I can take the time and space that I need. When there’s a busy week, I can acknowledge that and re-boot soon after. I know now that I can do it and that when I’m living my values, exercising with friends and family, having fun, eating well, catching the negative thinking – that I am happier and living my best life. Making the appointment and just following the plan was the best thing we did this year. I’m so grateful that I got the support I needed to make my own health and happiness a priority
