Nadia has lost an incredible 38kgs at Fernwood Capalaba since joining in 2016. Read about what motivated her to take on her incredible transformation.
"What inspired me to make a change in my lifestyle was my two daughters. In 2015 I became a single mum and just never had any energy for them and I didn't want to do anything. I knew I needed to make a change.
When I first joined Fernwood in 2016, I weighed 98kgs. I had never joined a gym in my adult life, I had no confidence and I was so miserable. From the day I joined, I knew it was going to change my life.
I started off by going three days a week and slowly worked up to going six days a week. I started to gain my confidence back and see a real change in my overall personality! The weight started coming off and the more I saw it go, the harder I worked.
Fast forward to 2017 and one of my goals was to hit my 30kg weight loss milestone. In less than 11 months, I did it! I went from a size 18 to a size 10, I now weigh 60kgs and have lost 38kgs so far. I owe a lot of this to my experience at Fernwood, not only for the convenience of the 24/7 gym, but also for the support I have gotten from other members and staff.
But the biggest achievement is having my nine-year-old daughter tell me how proud she is of me that I lost all weight. There is no greater feeling than having your family be proud of you! I am so proud of how far I've come and feel so much better. I eat right and I religiously work out six days a week.
I am not yet at my goal weight but I am far closer than I have ever been before. My goal for 2018 is to do half a marathon."
