“I’d been promising myself for a few years that I would lose 2 stone. I tried a variety of methods – weight watchers, CSIRO and running, Juice diets, to name a few. I either found the plans difficult to do (calorie counting) or just got bored. I first noticed the #Noexcuses plan on facebook as it had been liked by a couple of my close friends who care about what they put into their bodies. I also completely loved the name as I was very good at making lots of excuses! I joined the community and started reading the stories and was amazed to see they all sounded like me! I thought about it for a few months and mentioned it to my husband who probably quite rightly said – not another plan? why don’t you try and do it yourself? Do you really think this one is going to make any difference?
I couldn’t get out of my head how much the stories could have come from my mouth. A photo was taken of me out with my son in June last year and it was the final straw. I didn’t even recognise me, I had no energy – physical or mental, I travel a lot with work and I’d just stopped doing regular exercise.
So I requested a sample of the plan. What I liked is it was prescriptive, so for me perfect! I just had to follow the plan. I signed up to #Noexcuses and started immediately. I can’t say enough positive things about the facebook group or the KB Team. What an amazingly positive group and so reactive to any question. With the Aussie/GB group & trainers, any question I had got answered immediately. If I doubted myself or fell off plan I just read the posts and again people were saying what I was thinking or feeling.
I prepped and got up early to exercise so #noexcuses would creep in during the day. I really enjoyed the variety of exercise and the meals didn’t upset the family routine. I did the home version and bought some weights. I took what food I could away with me on business trips and tried to stick to the plan as much as possible. I could not believe how quickly I felt better than I had in a long time. Clarity of thought, energy levels up, healthier and eventually stronger from the exercises.
I measured and weighed myself at the start but that didn’t seem as important as the other benefits I was getting from the plan. I completed one round and lost about 7kgs and over 30cms. I didn’t feel ready to stop or move to something else (limits or life) so decided to do another round.
By my 50th in November I’d lost 15kgs. I felt like a different person. To be honest I didn’t really think about the difference in how I looked. My friends had arranged a get together and those that hadn’t seen me for a few months couldn’t get over how great I looked, not just the weight loss but how healthy! So that was amazing … yes I lost weight but in all the right places (one friend said), I looked and felt fantastic. My kids and husband were really proud of me, but most importantly I was proud of myself.
It’s now nearly February and I’ve continued following the principles, very much an 80/20 approach as I do go ‘off plan’ when I want. I’ve continued with the variety of exercise and my results have remained. I really notice if I go ‘off plan’ and don’t eat well so that’s all the convincing I need about this plan. It’s so good to be in control. I would absolutely recommend this plan to anyone. Thank you Kim Beach! – Kate x”
