“Kids giggling helped me see that enough was enough.”
I am a Physical Education Secondary Teacher and have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember! During my own schooling I was bullied heavily because of my weight and before Bodytrim I felt hopeless because it was happening to me again, but this time I was the teacher!
“I felt like a fraud!”
We all know kids can be cruel and I used to be so embarrassed to stand in front of a class and teach students about Health and Physical Education when I was clearly overweight! I simply felt like a fraud! I studied at University for 4 years and being involved in a P.E. which of course meant I was surrounded by athletes and toned bodies and much to my humiliation I could never keep my weight down! Now I know I was just fed the wrong information!
The defining moment
During a ‘class party’ my students took a photo of me tucking into potato chips. I was horrified at their giggles, my appearance and I thought enough was enough.
At my heaviest I weighed 81kgs. It took me almost half a year to lose that initial 4kg. I cringe at all that hard work with little reward. Then I started Bodytrim and I have lost a massive 12.5kg and 63cm off my body! I’m certainly not done yet!
Bodytrim + Annie Slattery = more laughter, more taken opportunities and being told for the first time I was beautiful!
