Hi its Vix here, Catherine lost 30kg using the Transform Program, what a Superstar.
I have so much ADMIRATION and RESPECT for Catherine, checkout her story below….
Tell me about Yourself Catherine
I am 46 year old wife & mother and I also work 30 hours a week as an accountant.
We have 2 girls (15 & 12) and 2 young dogs.
Why did you want to lose weight?
I have had an ongoing weight problem for most of my life.
And I have an ongoing lower back injury from a car accident in 2000.
I remember as a kid being bullied because of my size and shape.
After I had kids I did manage to lose some weight, but it slowly came back on until I was back to my biggest ever.
What part of your body did you want to change the most?
I was extremely unhappy with my whole body, but my stomach and hips were the parts of my body I most wanted to change.
My stomach was so big and bloated, I would try to hide it as much as possible and my hips just had far too much padding.
I was extremely unhappy with my weight.
It was very slowly creeping up towards 90kg, I was desperate not to hit that mark, but I could not control it.
No matter what I did my weight just would not go down consistently.
I would lose a little, then immediately put it back on the next week.
I knew I was doing something wrong with food and exercise, but had no clue on how to fix it.
What was the turning point that made you decide – YES I am going to change my body and get into shape?
The turning point was when I found my size 15 jeans were getting too tight, and my back injury was becoming more acute.
I was so unhappy with my size, and shape.
I also wanted to lose weight because my parents were having their 50th wedding anniversary in England.
Firstly, I wanted to lose weight so all the flights to England were more comfortable for me.
And secondly, and probably more importantly so I could show off my new slim body to all my friends and family back in England.
What were you eating when you lost 30kgs?
In the Transform program Vix sends you a meal plan and extra recipes to use every week.
Once the meal plan has been posted I don’t have to work out what to eat, its all there in black and white – less opportunity to ‘fall off the wagon’.
I enjoy the variety of all the Transform Recipes including Vix's fried Rice with chicken, Delinas Dhal, Vix’s Thai Noodles, Fitgirl Hotpot, Like Chow mien, Black Forest Cake Slice and the Clusters
What exercise where you doing when you lost 30kgs?
Due to my back injury, I initially was only able to start off slow with the workouts (which was not much in the beginning).
I complete the scheduled workouts Vix Writes for us each week.
I have found that starting the day with a workout really sets up my day well.
I am full of energy all day.
I have improved the strength in my back, I am able to complete parts of the workouts I only dreamed of before!
Tell me about some of the physical changes that you have noticed
My clothes began to fit better within the first week.
My Confidence is so much better now too, I am prepared to wear more fitted clothing.
I have been able to get back into some dresses I have had in the wardrobe for 3-4 years.
In fact I have a couple of pairs of work pants I was not able to wear 3 months ago that are now hanging off me – too big!
I now regularly get compliments from others which is very motivating and helps me to keep going.
What would you say to anyone who is thinking about starting the Transform Program
Go For It!... In the first 2 weeks I lost 2.5kg and I never looked back!
I started at 88.4kg, I am now 58kg.
I could not have done it without Vix, her program and the other members.
The Program provides so much positive encouragement.
The support is amazing!
