Since committing to the Wesley LifeShape program, Bernice has been able to lose over 13kg and drop 4 dress sizes in only 3 months^! "Once I joined the program, I was committed to lose weight and I have been amazed at what I have been able to achieve in such a short amount of time" Bernice said.
Bernice made a promise to herself to lose weight and become a healthier person, using her 7-year-old child as motivation. "I decided that I wanted to be around for as long as possible for my 7-year-old and joining the Wesley LifeShape program was going to help me become a much healthier person."
Bernice believes that ongoing stresses as well as a social life with plenty of food and drink on offer were the key contributors to her accumulated weight gain. "Stress really contributed to some bad food choices that I made over a long period of time and I also found it really hard to say no to food and drink if it was on offer in social situations."
Bernice had tried other weight loss programs previously, but wasn't able to take away with her a good strategy that would help her achieve weight maintenance in the long-term. "Wesley's individual, weekly sessions were tailored to my needs and the health professionals each dealt with my issues that were causing me to put on weight."
Bernice has also seen some real improvements to her health since completing the program. A recent visit to her GP showed a significant reduction in her cholesterol levels and she finds that she has more energy to go about her daily life. "I feel fantastic, I am sleeping a lot better and not requiring as much sleep as I used to just to get through the day."
Bernice has also been able to transfer the habits she learnt during the program into her daily life. "The exercise component really helped me start to enjoy exercising again and the team at Wesley taught me how to monitor my activities so that I was burning fat and not just carbohydrates." "I also had an excellent session towards the end of my program on weight maintenance and something just clicked. I knew that I could incorporate this into my daily life."
Bernice's success has really had an influence among her family members, with her father also now completing his program in Central Queensland.
