Colleen’s story

Colleen after losing 39 kilos

Hi my name is Colleen

After having 4 babies in 4 years I hit the scales at 108kg! With help from Annette’s fantastic recipes, exercise and changing my eating habits I was able to lose 39 kilos and maintain it. I now weigh 69kg. From a size 18 to a size 10 in 2 years, cholesterol down from 8.9 to 4.1. I am now a more confident, happier and healthier person.

Colleen before losing 39 kilosOne of my work colleagues ‘dobbed me in’ to Annette and next thing I knew, Annette had asked me to be part of her amazing 7th book… I was so excited to have had this fantastic opportunity to go further into my weight loss journey.

One of the questions Annette asked me was “What was the turning point for you?”

The turning point was actually the family photo you see here – I looked at it and literally said “have a look at me, that is disgusting!”  I gave my body 3 months to get over having my last baby, then I joined the gym. That was in 2010 and I haven’t looked back since. Sure I’ve had good days and bad days, but giving up was never an option.

When I started this journey my doctor did a few blood tests. Then in January 2012 I had some follow up tests and am pleased to say the results are outstanding.

Not only do I look and feel great but I am healthier on the inside as well.
