Growing up I was not overweight, in fact, I was quite slim. It wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s that I started to put on weight easily and then struggled to lose it. By my late 20’s I had gained almost 20kg since I had finished school. I then fell pregnant and while pregnant developed gestational diabetes. This was a blessing in disguise as it stopped me from putting on any additional weight while pregnant, I even actually lost some weight.
Then, in April this year, I was going through some recent photos and realised there were very little of me with my family and the ones I did have I felt I looked hideous. My face was full, my skin was red and blotchy and I just didn’t really seem happy. Clothes no longer fitted properly and the ones I did wear were elastic waisted. I was in denial as to how much I had let myself go, again. It wasn’t until I stood on the scales I knew I had to do something. Being at risk for now developing type 2 diabetes since having gestational diabetes, it had to be now.
I was no longer on a diet, I was changing my thinking about food and this was going to be my lifestyle going forward.
I had yoyo dieted for years, followed calorie controlled diets, and shake diets. I had success with all of these but I also did not have as much weight to lose as I did now. I also felt like I was really restricted with what I could and could not eat.
While scrolling through Facebook, the Kim Beach ad popped up and intrigued I clicked for more information. With a weeks free trial I had nothing to lose.
As soon as I started I knew this was a program I could not only follow but would enjoy. The meals were easily adapted for the family, could be bulk made and were delicious. The exercises were hard at first but I soon got in a rhythm and found myself looking forward to going to the gym. The information regarding the principles was what helped me. I was no longer on a diet, I was changing my thinking about food and this was going to be my lifestyle going forward.
One of the most important parts of my success has been the support group and the Kim Beach Team.
In the stage I dropped 3.5kg and around 25cm. It motivated me to keep going and while the following months’ my weight loss was slower I was still losing weight so I was happy.
To date I have lost 11kg and 65cm. My shape has changed drastically. My skin is clear. I have more energy and I am so much happier. I still have a little way to go and I am ok with it taking time.
One of the most important parts of my success has been the support group and the Kim Beach Team. Having this platform to interact with a group of women going through the same experience as me has been wonderful. They will celebrate your success but also support you through your failures. There is no judgement.
I am so honoured that Kim asked me to share my story, thank you for reading. I hope that it inspires someone on a similar path.
