Falling off the ride to physical fitness is never an easy recovery. To return to his/her healthy course, a person must abandon the traditional lifestyle and boring routines s/he has been following.
Take the mother known as Karen Sharpe, as an example. This 37-year old's resolution was quite easy and promising. She simply got rid of her usual nightly takeaways, adopted a balanced diet, and invested more time in exercising.
Her weight has been on the rise since her early years. Food was her company and eating was her exercise. She has been subject to bullying and body-shaming.
Karen was an avid fan of evening pot noodles along with snacks such as chips, and chicken. She computed that she would shell out almost £20 for takeaways every day. And then, she was also a full-time mother of 4.
There came a time when she observed her lack of strenuous physical activity. Six years ago, her body was in a state of immobility. She wanted to walk but was unable to.
The experience has been tiresome and degrading on her part. After realization crashed on her, she consulted a doctor for a valid medical advice. Getting herself enrolled in a gastric band program was proposed to her.
After knowing that she still have to wait for years for her operation, she decided to get up and join an alternative fitness program while waiting.
Karen scrapped the idea of the surgery and settled on the healthier options. She made a change in diet and paired it up with a vigorous exercise routine. She enrolled herself into another exercise class right away. Her weight gradually lowered.
Look at her now, her efforts paid off. Currently, Karen has her weekly physical fitness routines. Now, she is one of the fitness mentor at Weight Watch. Her life is more prosperous than before!
