Weight Lost - 54.4lbs

Good evening Ger and the Team,

Well here I am, 3rd course under my belt, a much looser belt than at the start of 2023.   What an amazing year I have had. I found out about BS from a parenting forum, the more I read about it the more I knew this would work for me. I spoke to my cousin in New Zealand, who had weight to lose too.  She listened to one of Ger's lives and said, yeah I am in. 
We started in January, neither of us could walk far at all.  We listened to Ger, and we did exactly what he told us to do. By the end of the January course, we both had lost a good lot of weight, we were at good but not brilliant.  
We signed up for the April course.  By the end of the April course I had reached my DTD weight, my cousin hadn't just reached it. I lost 55 pounds. We signed up for the September course, 2023 year was dedicated to us.  I finished the September course the exact same weight, to the ounce, as I was the day I finished the April course.  The maintenance also works. Between us, my cousin and myself have lost a total of 136lbs, a whole person. 
Before starting the programme, we never imagined we would be walking 4 mile a day (and loving it) wear the clothes we wanted to wear or ever have a positive mindset about our weight and body image. 
BS has truly changed our confidence, our thought process, body and mind alike, and we are and forever will be, so grateful for the journey of self discovery that BS has led us on.  We don't walk into a room anymore, we swagger :) 
Thank you so so much., 
Janine and Julie.
