Weight Lost - 56lbs
Hi, I’m Jen Martin, a Project Manager living in Sandyford. Oh my goodness - I can’t believe I’ve got here!!!! I have been talking for YEARS about getting slim enough for summer so I could feel “better” about myself when the weather was warm and (just maybe) I could wear clothes that were not about just covering myself up.
My friends and family are probably sick of my talking about it. On 18th September 2017 I started Bodyslims, having seen a couple of my friends having brilliant results - “well, I’ve tried everything and they look great, so it’s another weight loss system worth trying right”?? From that first night, I don’t know how many times I felt that Gerard was talking to me directly - how did he get inside my head? How did he know what I was thinking??
Since September 2017 to June 2018 I’ve lost 54 lbs and love how much more confident I feel and just happy in my own skin. I’ve been able to buy the type of clothes that I’ve looked at for years but felt I’d look like I was pretending to be a young ‘wan’. My husband and kids have been so fantastic in supporting me throughout the whole experience, cheering my achievements with me, and they have now joined me in my walk each day, even after I got to my goal weight, because I feel I’m missing something if I don’t walk every day and they want to feel as fit as I do.
Gerard and the whole BodySlims team are so supportive. When I was trying to get a faster walking time one November Sunday in Dun Laoghaire, Seán kept me going by saying “you’ve no problem - you’re chatting to me now without even being out of breath, push on”, and I did. I’m still improving my walking time and loving it!!
Thanks Gerard, Sharon, Seán, Jenny and the whole gang for empowering us to understand what we need to do - it’s not hard but we just need to do what you tell us, when you tell us and learn a new way of life. I’m there now and refuse to give it up.
Look forward to joining you in Dun Laoghaire in September, as a veteran!!
