On returning from a holiday in Florida with extended family sharing a villa, Laura and her family decided to book again, this time at a hotel. It was as this point that Laura decided that she wasn’t going away again feeling like she did.

Here is her story in her own words:

“I started my weight loss journey in January 2015, weighing 14st 8.5lbs, not a number I’m proud of. I have lost weight in the past but not kept it off mainly because my reasons were only short terms goals. This time I decided would be different as I wanted to lose the weight and keep it off for good!”

A year later and Laura is now at her goal of 10 stone 7.5 pounds, total loss over 4 stone.

“Feeling better and fitter than ever before. Less lethargic and no longer out of breath all the time. Clothes are fitting so much better, and I am more confident in my appearance.

Much more than that, I was ecstatic when I purchased a size 10 pair of jeans.

Support and encouragement from glow and Jill has been amazing, so important to feel comfortable and relaxed in class as means you can give your all during the fitness classes, as Jill will confirm I always jump about mad at class as have realised that if you give your all at every class the results speak for themselves.”

By still attending 3 classes a week, Laura realises that the journey doesn’t end at goal, and is in it for the long term and looking forward to the future.
