I am genuinely and totally gobsmacked by the results I have achieved on the #noexcuses program! I never would have believed that my body and mind could be transformed the way that is has.
I came across the program from a friend’s Facebook page. Like many others, I read all the reviews and there was not one negative comment but instead lots of incredible results. So I bit the bullet and signed up. The motto #NOEXCUSES totally resonated with me!
Previously I felt lethargic, constantly tired, was not sleeping well and suffered from headaches. I was sick of buying huge clothes that looked like tents. Going clothes shopping always ended in tears. I’ve been a yo-yo dieter for years and done many weight-loss programs. I was in a dark place after I lost my beloved sister almost 2 years ago and fell into a hole. I sought comfort in food. I felt her size 8 foot kick me swiftly up the backside. The final straw was when I had to shop for an outfit for a family wedding in July. I wanted to buy a beautiful dress but knew there was no way I was going to look good in it. I started the program one week later.
Fast forward just over two rounds and I have lost over 20kgs and 66 cms from bust/waist/hips! Crazy, right ?! However there were other benefits – I no longer suffer from headaches, I sleep like a baby, I’m never hungry unless I’m “due” to eat, my skin is silky smooth and have lots more energy. And more importantly, it’s had a positive outcome on my twin teenage daughters, who are at a very impressionable age when it comes to body image and how their skin looks. They now make better choices eg. they take tuna & sweet potato patties as a school snack. They also join me on my walks once a week – which means getting up at 5:30am! Even my husband enjoys the food – “I’ll have what you’re having” he says. Some of Kim’s recipes are now staples in our home, such as Turkey Bolognese and San Choy Bow.
I stuck to the program 100% and exercise around 90%. That’s 126 days with no wine, sea salt chips, chocolate, take-away food etc. I was on a mission and nobody or anything was going to get in my way. Whenever I went out I always had food with me so I was never caught out. I now drink black coffee, even though it’s something I thought I could never do. I didn’t do anything special – I just stuck to the program. I couldn’t think of an excuse not to stick to it! I even enjoyed the training – I did all my exercises first thing in the morning. A great way to start the day feeling energised.
Since finishing the program, I was afraid of going back to my old ways and forget what I have learnt on the program. And you know what, I haven’t! I no longer see food as comfort but more about nourishing my body. I’m not eating for the sake of it, instead ask myself “is what I am putting in my mouth of benefit me in any way?”. I have cleaned out my wardrobe and now wear clothes that I never dreamed I would fit into again. It’s like shopping in my own wardrobe. I signed up for #noexcuseslife which has a little bit more variety and loving it.
I could not recommend the #noexcuses program highly enough to anyone looking to make a change in how they look and feel. You will not regret it. The program absolutely works!! It is simple to follow, I loved all the food and no fancy gym equipment was required (I did the home version). I am a busy full-time working mum, so for me the meals had to be quick to prepare which they were. Sure, there’s a bit of preparation involved (I do mine mostly on weekends) but in order to get results you need to put in the effort – and this goes for all aspects of life.
Don’t ever say you can’t. You can do anything that you put your mind to. I’m no different to anyone else – you just have to want results bad enough, and I did!
Lastly, I would love to thank all the fabulous KB support ladies for their wonderful guidance and encouragement – you all rock! The private Facebook page is a fabulous network of women who are non-judgemental and are invaluable for any advice and feedback. But best of all it’s been so rewarding to be able to support all the women on the program. A huge thank you for everyone’s positive posts along the way.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Kim Beach ♥
