I’ve been Get Gorgeous- ing for about a year too and I’ve noticed all sorts of changes. when I joined I too was hoping for a quick fix despite having read the blurb I still wanted the weight to drop off by magic! anyway I have moved away totally from weight as a measurement -we have no scales in the house.
I feel as though I am in a good place. I too look forward to exercise and I actively seek out new ways to exercise and new people to exercise with. actually doing enough cardio is something I need to work on in the weeks when life gets in the way of my cycling to work (I need to timetable some HIIT workouts more regularly) but I’m great at getting my 10k plus daily steps in and doing pilates and yoga weekly – I’m managing 1 run a week I want to up that to 3 short ones (and I still haven’t done my park run watch this space) I feel that I am actually looking after my body (and my soul with help from Adele Stickland) at last.
The emphasis every day in my head is on putting good things in to fuel and support and nourish my body not on depriving my body of anything. I feel proud of how strong and toned my body has become. I struggled a bit at first with the earning of the carbs but now its just a genuine habit – I don’t eat starchy carbs unless I have exercised I eat bolognasie or chilli etc without pasta or rice on those days and cheese it up – its delicious. planning ahead is becoming ingrained too and we always have enough veg in the fridge for a tasty salad – we add cooked green beans and asparagus and all sorts of variations on a theme and I’ve become a lidl /Aldi convert for their great selection of fresh fish. even the kids are eating fresh fish now! this post is too long but you get the idea. keep the faith and the rest will follow xxxxxx

I have been on this Get Gorgeous journey for about a year. It’s been an up and down journey, but really feel I am in such a good place! I look forward to exercise, can’t imagine a week without it! Don’t make excuses not to go but always make time to go! 💪 Naturally now choose healthy foods, haven’t had a take away for months and no desire to! And my body, well never perfect but I love it ❤️ have learnt that not all size 12’s look good on me and I am happy to get rid of them rather than ‘wait’ to see if they fit!!! The big life changer is having the self belief and confidence to change career path. Just had a lovely comment from a reflexology client ‘slept like a baby’.
Thank you special gorgeous lady Adele Stickland x❤️

“I do not feel the need to hide less healthy food away but nor do I feel as someone commented that they do not want to eat sweet things at least sometimes. This made me realise that I am feeling generally more confident about food choices.
I think the main reason for this is that your programme is not a diet – so there is no need to feel deprived of anything or feel hungry. This in turn means not only that I don’t feel cravings for things I “can’t have” and also there is not the feeling that “I have messed up today so it doesn’t matter anymore, I will have to start again tomorrow” which could lead to further unhealthy choices for the rest of the day.
Now I know that the occasional biscuit (or ice cream in hot weather) is not a problem as long as it stays occasional and the good habits are kept up most of the time I am feeling much more confident. Of course logically I knew this already but now really understand it.
This feels like one of those “light-bulb” moments – realising the benefit of that changed mindset.”

Adele ……..is a wealth of information on nutrition and the body. Most of all, she is always upbeat, encouraging and inclusive.

This is the perfect package for people just like me. It’s easy to follow, accepting of who I am, who I want to be and mistakes that I may make along the way. I really liked the flow and by the end I felt like an expert – you had given me the tools and the support and the motivation. I am a huge fan and will be your number one fan all the way!

Get Gorgeous has helped me boost my will power. It is a fresh new idea that has made me think again about how I eat and exercise. There were a few things in the course I knew already but didn’t want to face up to, such as the amount of sugar and additives in my food that I was ignoring, but now I feel renewed and empowered by Adele’s words to change mine and my family’s life for the better. I am now exercising more, sleeping more and no longer suffer from sugar cravings. 2016 is going to be a great and successful year for me and my family.

Before I did Get Gorgeous I used to look in the mirror and feel so disappointed and upset with myself. I had no control over what I ate, I used to obsess everyday, all day about food, I used to constantly think about sugary foods, crisps, wine and the rest. I would get such strong urges to binge that it would leave me feeling stressed and depressed. I would over eat at every meal. I was grumpy with my family, short fused with my poor children and never happy with what I was wearing. I would walk around all tense and self conscious. NOW I feel energised, I feel sexy, I feel HEALTHY! I love my family more than ever as I have put my self obsessions away and there is more time in my head and heart for them. I have a new obsession EXERCISE!! I love it! It makes me feel fab, it puts colour in my cheeks and it makes food taste better than it ever has!! AND when I do have those naughties, I am at peace with it because I know that I am in control of how much and when and I know that my new lifestyle will be able to sustain that sugar. THANK YOU THANK YOU Adele Stickland and all you GG ladies for your support and guidance. What a fabulous community of women! Now where are the TSHIRTS so I can advertise the course whilst out EXERCISING!!!
