After a lifetime as a highly qualified fitness professional and Pilates instructor things started going down hill in a big way during my second pregnancy when I had to move 3 times to 3 countries. My husband was not around and I had no access to a gym and all I could do was eat. I indulged all my cravings, I didn’t care and resigned to fact that I was going to be another overweight 38-year-old Mum. I never wanted to leave the house or go out to dinner and felt awful when I looked in their mirror. I was depressed and the doctor prescribed medication.
The turning point was when none of my clothes fitted and I saw a photo of myself. I knew it was not just about losing weight; it was about getting my life back.
I found Belinda looking like a teenager lol, so relaxed and down to earth with her sweet accent. I felt like everything we did had a purpose – not just a pre-packaged recipe. It took a little while for my weight to drop and my body to change but I felt so good it didn’t matter. Then out of the blue I started losing weight very quickly!
I have close to 30 years of exercise, ballet, aerobics, weight training, track and field and Pilates and I was astounded to see the difference. Get Lean re-sculpted my body by changing the way I ate and alternating a lot of unique exercises that helped me achieve a sexy feminine physique. It is a very meticulous and personalized experience.
It made me realize that when you become a mum you don’t have to lose your place in society as a women…sexy was not my goal I just wanted to simply feel proud of myself and be able to buy the clothes I wanted without thinking I am too old, or they are not suitable for a Mum. But I was shocked as I started getting attention from men!
I began wearing makeup again and taking time with my appearance – it was like the trickle down effect. I have a saying “what’s best way to eat an elephant – one bite at a time” and that’s how it was for me. I saw a bigger difference with Belinda than all the antidepressants I ever took. Now I am a way better mother, happier with more patience and I am proud to be a role model for my daughter.
Belinda walks the talk and is living in proof in real life of what can be done – she isn’t some 20 year old and she wasn’t always in amazing shape. She transformed later in life, she knows what it feels like and how to do it!
