A’Lisa’s Before & After Story

I was only 26 years old when I was told I had diabetes… was it a surprise? Simple answer – No. I didn’t do anything to help myself, I had the worse eating habits and all the excuses to avoid exercising. I was numb to the thought, like it wasn’t true. When it finally sunk in that I was going to have to manage diabetes for the rest of my life, I knew I had to change the way I was living my life. But after trying so many diets, you name it , I tried it. I always put the weight back on and more!

So after talking with my GP , my amazing partner and my family, I decided to go through with weight lost surgery. I decided I was going to save my life. During my recovery after surgery, I was doing a lot of thinking , I came to the realisation I didn’t want to return to a gym. I wanted help with exercise from someone who could help me, push me , motivate me, I wanted to just show up and be told what to do. I contacted numerous personal trainers and Keri was the first to respond to me. Keri arranged for me to come and meet her , when I arrived the environment just felt so right and then when I met Keri, I knew straight away that ‘this is it!’

At my heaviest I weighed 163kg , I now weigh 122kg! Thanks to Keri, I actually look forward to working out, I love that I hold accountability with Keri. I am so grateful to have met Keri and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve next!

On a personal note, thank you Keri, thank you for your kind words, your hard core training sessions, thank you for taking the time to help me understand the meaning of becoming a healthier version of me.
