It’s time to put one of my Ninjas in the spotlight again!
Sue finished her coaching at Christmas, after starting with me in October 2020.
Now, you might think that’s a long time to receive coaching to sort out your health.
But when I tell you that Sue had basically been on the same yo-yo dieting cycle for 20 years, just over a year to sort your health out doesn’t seem so bad after all does it? 💁🏼♀️
Sue had decided enough was enough:
“I was desperately unhappy 🙁.
I hated how I looked, I hated how overweight I was, I hated that I was always tired and felt like crap.
But mostly I hated how I felt about myself all of the time.
It was mentally and emotionally exhausting.”
So, we had A LOT of work to do.
The biggest thing we needed to do was help Sue change her mindset. To reverse years of negative self-talk, poor body image and obsession with the scales.
To get her to trust herself around food again, and to give her the belief that she could make the right decisions about her health.
So what else did Sue learn?
“I’ve learnt how to be comfortable within my own skin.
I’ve learnt the importance of listening to my own body, rather than just telling it to pipe down…your own bodies cues are sooo important.
I learnt a whole heap of things about nutrition…creating a calorie deficit, food quality, the importance and impact protein and fibre have on my body.
All about burning calories, how exercise and movement give you more energy and feel less tired (so quit whining and #jfdi sometimes).
This list is pretty endless!”
Wow – so with a list like that Sue’s life must’ve changed a lot right?
“You know when people go in for all that guru crap and say they’re going on a journey to become the best version of themselves 🤣, that’s pretty much what I’ve done!
I’ve lost a shit ton of fat, more than I ever thought was possible.
I gained a huge amount of confidence and self-belief…you weren’t joking when you said I could lend some of yours until I found my own.
My life has done a complete 360.
I do things now that I didn’t think I was capable of before. Not because I wasn’t capable of them but because I didn’t believe I could or should be doing them.
I’m active, I exercise….and I enjoy it, WTAF?!
I joined a gym and had a personal trainer for a while, it’s so far out of the old me comfort zone.
I wear clothes that I would’ve just looked at longingly before, now I snatch them up knowing my size doesn’t embarrass me and will be on the rack.
Probably most importantly, I started my own business, something I’ve wanted to do for as long as I can remember but never brave enough to take the leap. I didn’t think anyone would want what I had to offer, I was painfully uncomfortable in most situations and if I couldn’t be confident in my abilities then nobody would purchase my services.
But now here I am 12 months on and it’s been a success, hard work but absolutely worth it.
If I had to sum up the top three things I got from my time as a Ninja I’d say they were:
- A healthy family 👨👩👧👧 (we’ve all changed our behaviours and lifestyle), knowing that I can stop the cycle for my own children is priceless.
- An overall better life balance (knowing I have the tools to deal with whatever comes my way, without having a meltdown or burnout).
I’ve enjoyed my time being coached by a badass 😎 👌.
You don’t need me to tell you that you’re incredible at what you do….but you are!
I knew I could say anything to you and it would be OK (I never cried though, win for me).
I also knew that you would never fix my issues for me, but you would without a doubt help me find a solution and the tools to resolve it in a way that worked best for me without being all judgey and condescending.
Thank you for helping me and being a fucking legend.
In just over a year you’ve given me what I’d spent my entire adult life searching for.
And to know that I now have the Ninja Skillz to maintain this for the rest of my life is an incredible feeling.
I owe you so much 🤗 🥰”
And there goes another Ninja, waved off into the sunset with the tools to manage her health FOR LIFE.
Which means I have space for YOU…..do you want to start your journey?
Cos Sue has some words of advice for you…
“If you really want to change your life FOREVER, then just message her now.
It will 💯 be the best decision you ever make in your life.”
So what are you waiting for?
