Vicky’s Story

Before starting coaching with Rachael I found it really difficult to lose weight on a consistent basis with emotional eating often sabotaging my progress, making me feel like I would never be able to achieve my goals.

Four months into coaching I can now see my body starting to change into the body I have always wanted, it’s not perfect but it’s mine and I am finally starting to like my body after spending most of my life hating it.

The emotional connection I used to have with food doesn’t exist anymore and for the most part I am consistent with eating healthy food that I actually now really enjoy. My mindset has also changed beyond recognition. I have even recently joined a gym, which is something I have wanted to do for years (even had the gym clothes at the back of my wardrobe!) but I had been terrified to do it as I haven’t exercised in public since I was at high school about 20 years ago.

I couldn’t have achieved what I have done without Rachael’s support, not only in educating me how to eat properly but helping me move beyond some significant mental blocks that I have had from being a young girl.

I always find Rachael very easy to talk to, she is always understanding and when I am struggling gives me some good advice that is easy to apply. I am also so grateful for her hand holding me through getting to the gym for the first time as that is one of the most difficult things I have ever done.

The best thing about coaching for me has been to finally develop a good relationship with food after about 27 years of dieting. This time last year I felt like I was destined to be fat for the rest of my life and now I am within reach of being what is clinically classed as a healthy weight.

Where weight loss is concerned though the biggest shift is that I am no longer obsessed with what I weigh and I am now focused on being strong, healthy and most importantly happy. For the longest time I just used to think I could only be happy when I lost weight but I am choosing to be happy now and enjoy the process.

I am smiling and laughing a lot more than I have done for years, it feels like a real burden has been lifted from my shoulders, and I can’t tell you how good that feels!

Thank you Rachael!
