“Weighing in at a whopping 96,7kg I was at my lowest, feeling depressed and I didn’t want to go outside or do anything. So after following the SleekGeek page for a long time (seeing the results and the support), I took pictures send it to Elan and said I will never look like this again and I will do the next challenge, Lucky me Elan ran a twitter competition for an entry and I won Whohooo. SO now I was not going to waste my money but OMW Elans’ money. Then my lifestyle journey began.
I followed the Paleo way of eating and did park runs and some 360 classes on Saturdays. I was very scared to exercise in the beginning.
It’s really now or never, don’t say Monday or next month. If you want to change do it NOW!
When you feel down and want to cry just cry, don’t eat something you’re going to regret. It will make you cry more. Make use of the SG pages, without it and the people on there I wouldn’t have been able to have changed the way I did.
The support as a group is what makes Sleekgeek. They don’t force anything on you and when you feel down they pick you up! They give the best advice and I have learned that Healthy is fun.
In the beginning people said: “She’s way too fat to be that confident” (I was wearing a beautiful pin striped skirt to work and super proud of fitting into it)
“Is she REALLY losing weight?”
And my favorite: “How long will this last?”
So today after 3 months, I have 6 people in my office having our own mini challenge. Why? Because they have seen my results and they too believe they can do it and that it’s not about diets or how long it will last. It’s a way of life.
Thank you Elan for what you have started and for what you want to achieve. Thanks to my wonderful husband, my Sleekgeek family and my 3 amazing SleekGirls. Adriana Prins, Katherine Du Plooy and Ilana Van Rensburg for all your support and ass kicking. I couldn’t have done it without you.”
