Nicola (Kickstart Normal)

I’m Nicola, 48 years old, married with two boys 14 and 11. I work 4 days a week as a School Business Manager. My catalyst was a health scare which made me start to rethink my priorities. Not only do I want to be there for my family for as long as I can I want to enjoy my life to the full. I was tired, stuck in a rut with my food, enjoying exercising but knew I needed to push myself more.

Nicola's Story

I was excited about starting but I was worried whether I could fit the exercise into a busy schedule. I also didn’t want to be cooking different meals for everyone. I went for normal Kickstart because of the cost. I was unsure if I would follow it and decided that the normal price could be justified because if I succeeded I wouldn’t need a new outfit for Christmas events as hopefully my old dresses would fit again!!

In the end I loved it all: the articles, the workouts (particularly the podcast keeping me going when out running), the support from the facebook group, the recipient, Lorna’s enthusiasm. I felt much more positive about everything general. I had more energy and it was great to receive positive comments from people about how well I was looking.

I lost 10cm from my waist, 5cm from each leg, 7 cm from my bottom, 2cm from each arm and lost 15lbs. Fitness wise I am now able to run 5k without stopping which I didn’t think would ever be possible. I’ve also lost my “sweet tooth” which meant I couldn’t ever stop at “just one”. I think healthy eating all the time but do not worry if I can’t always avoid everything. A little bit doesn’t matter. In the past a little bit of something would lead to more and more and more. With “next day I’ll be good” never happening.

Since finishing the 8 weeks I've continued to lose weight and I feel fab!
