Certified WILDFIT Coach
At 49, I thought this was it!
My life….. was I destined to be a few pounds over weight forever.
I loved my life, living an expat lifestyle, a solid marriage of 15 years and two beautiful daughters but I had emotional mood swings, lack of energy, chronic IBS and of course, carrying those extra 20 pounds.
I have tried numerous diets over the years, Weight Watchers, Scottish Slimmers, Dukan, Atkins, 5:2, Cabbage soup, Jason Vale - Juicing, and the most recent Zone diet. These are to name but a few of the diets I have tried over the years, not to mention the exercise regimes, I have invested in.
I must admit, when I start, I do have this great diet mentality and I have experienced some great short term wins; the weight released but within months of stopping, I would regain the weight, usually more. I have never re-found success returning to a previous diet regime.
During the COVID 19 pandemic, with lots of time at home as a family, we spent time reminiscing of the days when we could travel. Whilst skimming through family photos, I noticed that I was absent in many. This was heartbreaking and it was like I did not exist, especially when we visited a beach or water park as I hated the way my body looked. At this moment I knew I had to do something to correct insecurities around my body image, so I would not project this negativity on my children.
It was obvious that I had been ignoring my health and wellbeing; just accepting my ageing body. I thought I was fairly healthy, through eating in moderation, but I had no energy to do anything. Was my body telling me, it had nothing left to give?
Clearly driven with a plan to lose weight and be happy, I stumbled upon Mind Valley, promoting WILDFIT. I was captivated with Eric Edmeades and his methodology; needless to say I began the WILDFIT 90 day challenge in February 2021 with a large group of like minded individuals to improve my health and hopefully, lose those excess pounds.
Immediately, I knew I had never started a ‘diet’ like this before and realised this was different. I became mindful around food, I was more aware of types of hunger, loved the weekly videos and the group check ins. I felt part of something bigger and I could listen to Eric all day.
This challenge opened my eyes to the food industry and the tactics they utilise through marketing to get us hooked; those amazing advertisements that make you feel hungry just by looking at an image.
As the weeks progressed I felt more inspired, by the end of the challenge I had released those excess pounds and felt 20 years younger.
But what was truly amazing, was that now I had no IBS symptoms, no more brain fog, I slept soundly and had new found energy stopping me needing afternoon naps. What I have gained from WILDFIT is priceless - positivity, self- esteem, mental clarity and HAPPINESS!
Ask my husband, the benefits of WILDFIT!
