The benefits are endless and becomes a positive way of life
I retired from the NHS in March 2018 after almost 40 years service, first as a nurse but for 35 years as a medical secretary, nursing had to go due to a back injury. I felt very fat and uncomfortable! By following the Adele links I thought I would take the opportunity to book a call to have a chat with Adele. Little did I know how this would change my life. Sounds dramatic, but it absolutely has.
I don’t think I had thought about how committed I would need or want to be, I just thought Adele would help me to lose weight and get fitter, but at the end of that first call when I cried, sobbed and was an absolute mess, I realised I was on a path to a better way of life which I knew Adele would help me get through.
I was in the process of selling the family home which was taking a horrible amount of time and which was traumatic as the decision to move had been a hard one in the first place. It was where we had lived for 20 years and where my darling husband Stuart had died in my arms after a short cruel illness but one he had fought so hard against. On that first call, Adele helped me realise I was still grieving even if I believed I was fine although I knew the mask was still evident a lot of the time, safety net rules.
I signed up to the Get Gorgeous programme and got going with wholehearted commitment. Within a short space of time, I was completely hooked on what the process was about and the possible end results. Even though I was committed it was the support and encouragement of Adele that kept me going. I was doing the workouts set out in the modules I was following. I found doing the workouts on a daily basis easy to follow and enjoyable. I was doing these on the suggested three times a week but as I progressed through the modules I was able to mix and match them through the week and so I was doing something every day, as well as walking and golfing. Great strides. I was also losing weight and feeling so much better for it.
The weight loss was becoming noticeable and I was receiving compliments from family and friends, which was a great morale booster for me. I was starting to believe in me! Alongside me all the way was Adele whose encouragement, positivity and commitment to me (she made me feel as if I was the only person she was doing this for and so made me feel very special) was endless and worth so very much and to whom I will be forever grateful. With the zoom meeting calls, Adele was able to see the changes in me and obviously my weekly submitted adherence sheets. It was obvious it was working for me and I felt so incredibly positive and excited by what I was achieving.
Before I started the programme I was very sad, even though I believe I covered it well, I missed Stuart so very much and although I was busy in my life he was missing. Since becoming a part of this journey I believe I am a bit more outgoing, although probably still feel more comfortable with those I know well and happy to be a part of the background. I don’t think that is a negative thing but will change as I continue to grow in confidence. I cannot tell you how much seeing and talking to Adele has done for me in self-belief and confidence.
Adele is one of the most positive, encouraging, committed people I have met. She is so obviously knowledgeable about her subject and is keen to share this and help anyone achieve whatever they want, can’t wait for the book.
She is so exuberant and delightful that I just want to do my best for her and myself. For me the benefits are endless and although I have completed the modules the journey continues and becomes a positive way of life. I feel that I am more forward-looking than I was before and that is a massive plus and I feel very proud of myself.
Along the journey of Get Gorgeous I have lost a stone and a half in weight and lost lots of inches and have become much fitter and so I think I have achieved what I set out to achieve. Overall I feel so much lighter in mood and positive in my outlook which is a massive achievement and which is ongoing. Adele Stickland is a most extraordinary woman who I adore and feel I can call a friend. Thank You Adele.
