Jemma hit the 5 stone marker last night! She has lost 55 inches in total since joining KSFL in September last year! Jemma you look amazing girl!
Last Saturday I booked Jemma in for a photo shoot with Emma Collins to congratulate Jemma on her success. The pictures will be posted up here early next week. On the way to the photo shoot Jemma was telling me that before she lost all the fat she never wanted her photo taken because she was bigger. Now, she doesn’t have a problem with her photo being taken. She is a real natural beauty and looks stunning. Can’t wait to get the pictures on Saturday.
Hey! I am giving away FREE tips, challenges, nutritional & fitness advice over a 28 day period. What it involves:
Begins 28th April 2014 – You will be invited to a secret Facebook Group where I will be setting you KSFL lifestyle challenges to help you improve your nutrition & fitness. You would be mad not to hop aboard and try this.
To sign up for this go to http://kickstartfatlossbanbury.co.uk/contact/
Lot’s and lots to cover this week!!
We welcomed Mal Waddell to the KSFL Club. Hope all is going well Mal and that you are enjoying the KSFL lifestyle so far. Also shout out to Rachel Foster who is just looking amazing after two weeks!! Go girl!!
Congrats to Rob for hitting the 1 stone off!
Shout out to Linda Pridmore who won the goody bag after getting back on it and everyone else who stepped it up last week. Keep this going everybody. Once you are in the right mindset try your best not to slip back into old habits. It is a slippery slope. Which leads me onto giving you some motivation for the rest of the week.
Goals! I believe that setting goals is absolutely imperative to your success. Without goals you don’t know where you are heading. What the destination is? Now – I know/hope when you all signed up to KSFL you all wrote down your goals. I like to write things down personally as I love crossing goals out once I have achieved them. It just feels so good! Here are my top tips on goal setting:
- Put pen to paper and set achievable short, medium and long term goals;
- I suggest starting from the long term goal and working backwards;
- See the ultimate goal and then you can start to map your journey in a logical way;
- Don’t worry if the path on the way towards the ultimate goal changes, that’s life;
- Put you goals somewhere you can see them on a daily basis so you can keep track of where you are and cross off any little goals that you have achieved.
- Once you have set the goals, share them with a friend or a on the Facebook group and make that commitment to HIT those GOALS!!
Do you think you can do that? Can you commit? When you are in a positive mindset everything begins to head in your favour. But if you carry a weight on your shoulders you are just asking for trouble and to be honest people will begin to avoid you as you begin to start bringing them down. Be the person that people want to be around, spread your positivity like it’s virus. Whenever, I am feeling doubtful about my personal journey I pick up a book or I talk to my family and friends. Do this to help you get some perspective. I can recommend a number of different books if you like to read and also some great meditation websites/apps for you to try for FREE!! And finally – I’m here for you all. Don’t suffer in science.You have my contact details – so shout when you need a BOOST! (Not the chocolate bar lol!!!).
