I had 3 children under the age of 4 by the time I was 26 years old. Being a good “Italian Mama”, food and taking care of them was my life! I have always had a passion for food. I love to cook, and I love to eat! For 20 years, my children and family’s needs always came first.
When my youngest son turned 18, I stood in the middle of my hallway in an empty house feeling worthless and broken and thought, “what do I do with my life now?” The impact this had on my mental health was profound.
It was the week before my 50th Birthday when my mental health hit rock bottom, which was my turning point.
I finally stopped and looked in the mirror … there stood a 49-year-old weighing 140 kilos! Even at my heaviest, I was always happy, but I had so much more living to do, and I wanted to do it at my best. I realised I didn’t want to be like this anymore and, with mind over matter, set about on my journey.
I changed the way I ate, took myself out of the kitchen with the help of Lite n’ Easy and found a gym.
Lite n’ Easy made the transition very convenient. I didn’t have to think about what to eat. It gave me more time to focus on myself. The choices, the flexibility, and easiness were contributing factors in choosing Lite n’ Easy.
Everything is provided so neatly in day bags, making it easy to fit in smoothly with my everyday lifestyle. There was no longer a need to spend hours at the supermarket. No need for meal prep!
The different cuisines and choices make it easy to forget that you are on a weight loss journey because you are not missing out on flavours. There’s even dessert!
I have lost 70 kilos in two years with the guidance of Lite n’ Easy. Going from a size 22 to a size 10!
During my weight loss journey, I decided to take up boxing as a form of exercise. At age 48, I had my first charity fight and jumped into a boxing ring at The Star Casino in front of family and friends.
Boxing has set me on a path that transformed my physical and mental health. I literally smashed the ‘blues’ out of my life. With every punch, I found more determination; with every kilo lost, I discovered vitality and renewed enthusiasm for life.
Age is only meaningful when choosing wine or cheese …… for everything else, you are only as young as you feel.
A mind is a powerful tool! As long as you believe in yourself, anything is achievable!
