Jenny’s Next Step Journey
“I am finally starting to believe that I can develop a healthy relationship with food, lose weight and keep it off, without having to count and track everything.”
Jenny is a business owner, landlord, and someone who has tried every diet under the sun to varying success.
Following the same cycle all of us follow, Jenny would lose weight, and then regain it once the diet was over.
This led Jenny to contact Next Step Nutrition, where she learned how to track her calorie and macro intake.
Jenny had great success, finding it amazing how much she could actually eat and still lose weight.
She also enjoyed the flexibility this allowed her in her food choices and social life.
However, Jenny has always struggled with an ‘all or nothing’ attitude, so when things got difficult, she found it hard to find balance, and would either be ‘counting and good’ or ‘not counting and bad’.
This led us to switch things up.
We dropped the calorie counting and started working on habits.
Jenny is now adopting behaviours that will last a lifetime and are the key to being healthy for the long game.
Learning that life is all about balance.
Through the habit focus Jenny has lost a further 4lb and is continuing to progress toward her goal of running a 10km before 2017!
“I have struggled with my weight my whole adult life, I was a slim, healthy child who loved food an awful lot and would eat as much as possible when given unrestricted access to things i particularly enjoyed.
This led to weight gain during adolescence and my first calorie counting at 16. Since then I have lost and gained significant amounts of weight several times, doing fine while counting and tracking but putting weight on as soon as I stopped.
Working with Jonny and following a macro plan revolutionised the way I looked at eating for weight loss and my beliefs about how much I could eat and still lose weight. I had fantastic success on the macro plan losing about 20lbs in 4 or 5 months.
Now I am working with Jonny on my eating habits and for the first time since I was 16, I am actually starting to believe that I can develop a healthy relationship with food, lose weight and keep it off, without having to count and track everything I put into my mouth!”
