I am so happy to have met you and to be part of your journey. You have achieved so much and continue to do so every day.. a real inspiration to me and many others...Love Tracy x
‘’I have struggled with depression and stress most of my adult life. I have a very addictive personality and comfort eating became my go to fix. Of course food didn't help it just made things worse.
I was really active before my pregnancy.
I had gone through 3 lots of IVF which failed, relationship breakdown, problems in the workplace and a big court case and a very poorly Mum, just the usual pressures of life really but ones that all together took their toll on me.
When I conceived with my daughter I was on anti-depressants which were not to be taken in pregnancy. I had to wean myself off these and change to a different medication throughout pregnancy. I then needed to come off them after I had given birth to be able to breast feed.
It was a roller coaster of emotions/feelings doubled with a difficult early pregnancy.
I was absolutely blessed to have a beautiful, healthy baby but I still struggled with depression and would over eat and binge eat.
At my heaviest I went up to 18 and a half stone.
When I lost my Mum after a long illness in 2014 I decided that I needed to do something and take control. I wanted to be around for my daughter growing up and knew that it was down to me to make the changes, I lost 7.5 stone in about 21 months.
I very rarely weigh myself now but know when I am not in control and reign it back it. I still have treats but am usually on plan Monday to Friday. Doubled with Tracy's classes and walking I manage to maintain mental and physical health.
I started with Tracy a few years ago and I am passionate about exercise. I do at least 4 classes a week and sometimes more. I love COMBAT and Body Pump but each and every class that I do had an unbelievable amount of benefit to me.
I owe so much to Tracy and all of the people who I exercise with. Without you all I wouldn't be where I am now today. I still walk the fells regularly and maintain a great level of fitness.
I have created a great work life balance and life is good for me now.
I now know that I am in control and that I can make choices that keep me on track.
Winning at life’’!!!
