"I have been a member since 2006 and exercised regularly to keep my joints moving. I had put on a lot of weight during chemotherapy a couple of years ago, and it kept gradually rising, even though I exercised and didn’t eat “junk” food the weight continued to creep up. It was with some trepidation in 2013 I embarked on the nutrition plan with the team at SHW. All that protein! Little did I realise that I would relish eating cottage cheese for breakfast. Now I understand I was eating a little too much too often, too many carbs and not enough protein. In 90 days on the plan, I am over eight kilos lighter and feel great and so do my dodgy knee joints. It’s lovely to fit into my clothes again – it is like greeting old friends. I enjoyed following the nutrition plan. It was easy to follow, and I was never hungry. I managed to weather lots of celebrations during the 90 days – birthdays, Easter and I still lost weight. I still have some weight to lose, but I now know how to do it. Many thanks to Peta for her expert coaching, warm encouragement and unflagging enthusiasm." - Gaynor
As a woman in my 50's I know it's important to have regular medical reviews. I am pleased to say my doctor is impressed with my results, sugar levels - great, kidney, liver, heart - great, cholesterol - great, blood pressure of a teenager, improved bone density, I should stop while I'm ahead. I starting thinking about what I would be like if I didn't workout. I understand that exercising is part of my life now, it is essential to maintain good health, keep me out of hospital, I don't want to be a statistic. I remember back to what I could or couldn't do when I first started, I have made so much progress. I can actually do a push up now. After my workouts I have heaps of energy and feel great. I know it's about acceptance as you age, I'm not 20, my body has changed, it's about staying healthy and strong. Women my age are more aware of our health and do what we can to stay well.
