Find out how health trainers helped Teresa loose over ten stone in seventeen months!
In August 2012 I was preparing to go back to work for the next academic year and ordered my size 26 black tailored work trousers. They arrived and didn’t fit. I had refused to accept that really I was a size 28 – my biggest to date. I knew that it was time to change my bad habits.
I had tried lots of fad diets before, lost weight and then gained it back again often with more on top so knew I didn’t want to go down that route. I had seen an advert for the Health Trainers and their facility to support with weight loss. I thought I would give it a try because this time I really wanted to change.
