My motivation for embarking on the 12-Week Bodyblitz Challenge was my high risk of developing diabetes. During my third pregnancy I almost developed diabetes and both of my parents also have
the condition.

Over the last 16 years I’ve tried numerous diets and weight-loss products with varying results and always wanted a quick fix without the hard work. Yet this time with my health in mind (rather than my appearance), I decided working hard now would benefit me in the long run.

I started going to circuit classes each week and on my first night I saw October’s 12-Week Bodyblitz Challenge runner up, Rayleen Kemp. It was then and there I decided to take up the challenge. With the help of personal trainer Kate Loechel, I started my diet and training program.

The diets she devised for me were easy to follow and after years of low-carb and meal-replacement diets, it was nice to be able to eat real food. For the first time in my life, my love of food and losing weight weren’t mutually exclusive.

I was really scared that I wouldn’t last the whole 12 weeks, so I told my family, friends and the girls at work about the challenge. The extra pressure made me push myself that little bit harder.

As a mum of three boys and working two days a week as a nurse, I’ve always found it really hard to exercise. This meant being organised with meals and exercise were really important, but I soon noticed a huge improvement in my general fitness. By week six I was fitting back into my original work pants and by week nine I had to go buy a new pair – one size smaller!

At the start of the challenge I was too embarrassed to even wear a bikini; now I have more confidence and higher self-esteem. I’d like to thank Kate, my husband Travis and my boys Liam, Caleb and Dylan, for all their support and encouragement. I’m happier, sleeping better, and for the first time in a long time, I’m proud of myself.
