My name is Gaye Crofts, I am 53
years old and a full time housewife and carer. I care for my mother who
lives with us. This is my story.
Lizzie my youngest daughter and I both felt unhappy about our figures so when
we saw Jago’s advert in the Evening Courier we decided to join the 8 week challenge. We did it together so we both had continuous encouragement along the
way. This was a great idea for the support we gave each other, also
the three trainers pushed us knowing that we could improve quickly.
I have tried to lose weight on
numerous occasions but I always put it back on. Jago educated me as to
why my previous weight attempts hadn’t worked and instead how to eat healthily and exercise
After a week with Jago I felt much
more energetic and now it is just part of daily life. I always manage to
fit in a run, a walk or a swim. I have also got in to the habit of
preparing wholesome and healthy meals and now steer clear of too much fat and sugar. I find the hardest thing is to drink 2 litres of water a day, but I have managed to
cut down on coffee.
I feel very good about myself and
I am proud that I lost my middle aged spread. I achieved all the goals I
set myself and my diet has changed considerably to a much healthier one.
I would advise anyone wanting to get fit to join one of Jago's groups, the
challenge has been really brilliant, I have enjoyed it very much.
The trainers and other contestants have been great fun. Everyone
encourages each other and the sessions are good and each one is varied. What an excellent way to kick start a new healthy way of life.
