What Our Members Say

We’re seeing some life changing results…

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!

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!!!

What was your health like before you joined Get Gorgeous?

“I’d noticed that I was getting a lot of colds. I’m also an academic so being in a school type environment so I was getting a lot of colds, but also I was feeling rather lethargic.

From a nutrition point of view, I felt that I wasn’t putting the right things in my body but I didn’t know what the alternatives should be or could be in order to just feel that physically, feel more improved physically.

What have you tried or done in the past to improve your health?

“When I was a lot younger, it was easy just to cut certain foods out, you know, because predominantly, it is a weight thing for me but actually it’s not.  I appreciate now that my weight is the outcome of what it was that I was putting into my body

I’ve tried typical other diets which worked for two to three weeks and then as soon as I eat normally, as I would call it, it all comes flooding back.

Rachel explains:

“I don’t want to feel deprived”

I like food and I’m the sort of person if you tell me I can’t have something then I want it all the more so I don’t want to be deprived and obviously what had happened is that you know, ‘

“I am active and I don’t want to feel hungry”

I have a dog and I’m quite active, but my body’s got used to that, so in order for me to change anything about me physically, there needed to be the combination of different food choices and moving more.

So whereas previously it was just a case of just not eating as much, and not changing anything on the movement side, and I think for a long time, actually, I was eating the wrong things and also not enough. My body was feeling constantly starved. – Yes. – But I’d be thinking, “I’m very hungry, “therefore I must be losing weight,” and then being disappointed. When actually, the scales were going the opposite way and I was confused, you know, because historically, put less in, the weight dropped off but that’s because my makeup was different then. I was a lot younger,

I realized when I hit my 40s that actually I needed some additional help with that because my old-fashioned habits weren’t working anymore and I think that’s been it, and as a result, I know when I’ve not drunk enough water now because I’m thirsty, and I know what thirsty means and I know what hungry means in my body”

“Now I feel more confident, proactive about managing my business because I am mindful of looking after myself”

“I feel more confident, more proactive about managing my business because I feel well, content and more mindful of looking after myself.   Looking after myself which is in harmony with my business not in lieu of anything that I should be doing, as a businesswoman. I am not starving myself”
 
I know that I live a million miles an hour that because of my work so I wanted something that would be naturally absorbed into my day to day life. I’ve tried other things before and I have to change my way of doing things too much, it didn’t fit, Get Gorgeous fits my lifestyle”

All I can say is wow! Adele is a beautiful, supportive and an intuitive coach. I cannot believe that after just 6 weeks into my Get Gorgeous journey how empowered, healthier, and happier I feel.

Adele helps you to address the whole package from inside out, with no judgement, quiet support and that listening ear to help you understand that life is full of ups and downs, and a gentle hand to help you get back on the road when you wander off in the wrong direction.

Adele has a genuine desire to help you to become the better self, that you deserve.

Thank for supporting me to change that imbalance in my life and helping me for the first time ever to look in the mirror and see a happy, imperfectly perfect confident woman.

Every woman needs and deserves an Adele in their life. X

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

Catherine Yeandle Primary school teacher

Celebrating a big birthday Karen knew that this was her LAST CHANCE to get it right and look after herself. After decades of dieting, she had done it all – Cambridge diet, Slimming World. She as great on the diet, stuck to the rules, but as soon as the diet was finished and she let go of the strict 800 calories daily count she was lost. She quickly put all her weight back on.

Karen had done this so often that she felt Get Gorgeous was her last attempt. She was at a low ebb when we first talked.

Only a 1/3rd way through her journey and Karen is transformed, she loves the challenge, her skin looks great, fewer wrinkles and she is not craving chocolate anymore which is something she would have never believed.

Rachel has a busy professional career as a University Lecturer and in her words needed to look after herself in a way that could be “naturally absorbed in to her day to day life”, she had noticed that she was getting a lot of colds, feeling lethargic and she knew she wasn’t putting the right nutrition in her body.  Rachel was great at picking up a quick snack that kept her going in her busy life but was offering no nutrition and she knew the snack was not making her healthy.

With a demanding role and busy home life, Rachel’s health was NOT a priority but she realised it was something she had to address.

Rachel is a busy gorgeous girl, a hardworking bunny who lives life at a “100 miles an hour”. She fits a lot into her day and she was looking for some help with her health that could be “easily absorbed into her day”

I adore working with Rachel, she knows her mind and in her words I’m the sort of person if you tell me I can’t have something then I want it all the more” I know exactly what she means, so it is my job not to provoke her inner teenager, to work with Rachel so she feels empowered and energetic and able to live her life the way she wants to. Which to be frank ladies is an absolute essential. I want your health to be second nature, I want your mind chatter and self-deprecation to go away so you can get on and enjoy what is important to you, cos that is what life is all about!

Previously Rachel had felt that she had been able to just cut back on a few calories and lose weight but her body was constantly starving.

Rachel Hayward University Lecturer

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.”

Her advice is clear, practical and simple to follow and what she doesn’t know about health and nutrition probably isn’t worth knowing! With her kind and caring nature and approach, she is always in your corner to give you support. Give her a call you won’t go far wrong”

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.

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❤️

Gail had followed Weight Watchers and Slimming World for nearly 20 years, yet she was going nowhere and knew that the results were short term. They never worked in the long term and it didn’t feel like a life change they were a temporary fix.  She felt out of control with food and unhappy about it. She knew what she was doing was unhealthy but not knowing how to stop that, she needed guidance. She had read a lot about nutrition and the best things to do to get yourself fit and healthy but she couldn’t fit it into her family life. Gail is a legal secretary with twins.

Gail felt shame and guilt around her food choices, she felt out of control. She had the information on how to eat better and how to feel better but she needed to be part of something that was and guidance.  Working together Gail began to identify her binge eating was caused by boredom and feeling overwhelmed with her work and family.  She now eats intuitively and nourishes her body. she has now found a new direction and changed her life

Trying to do too much at once was overwhelming so she concentrated on the nutrition and worked towards to increasing her exercise

Gail’s results include:

  • Listening to her body and intuitive rather than mindless eating.
  • “Not stuffing her face” because she is eating emotionally
  • Thinking of her day as a whole instead of moving from one meal or snack to another.
  • Binge eating under control, she has identified she ate out of boredom and feeling overwhelmed emotionally or eating because she wanted to put things off.
  • Feelings of shame around her behaviour have gone.
  • Initially, Gail delayed starting the programme because she was scared of failing and she didn’t think she could do it, she didn’t eat of hunger,
  • Feeling full from proper food rather than eating because she was bored.
  • The mental load has been lifted there is no longer point counting, or weighing things, or have I had enough of this? Looking back that was such a waste of time.

What brought you on board with Get Gorgeous? What inspired you to connect with me and come on board Get Gorgeous

“I was was missing something in my life.  I was not confident and  I just felt really empty. I followed you on your Pilates, I followed some of your blogs, and it’s just literally an email came in one day and said, why don’t we have a chat? And I just reached out, and from that very first conversation, I felt comfortable talking to you.”

So, from that position that you were in, what was it, was it seven, eight months ago, how are you feeling now, what is the transformation that you’ve seen in yourself?

“Everything’s changed. My life has completely changed,  I have just found the person that I want to be, and it’s not about creating myself, it’s just about being confident to be the person you want to be. I used to think everybody was judging me.

And now, you’re comfortable being yourself?

“I love being myself. I love the fact I can look in a mirror, and like, like myself. You have no idea, how powerful that has been.  The whole of my adult life, there are a handful of photographs of me, because I would not let anyone take my photograph, I didn’t like my looks, I was very detrimental about myself, and now, I will go out without makeup, I will have my hair into tousled, because it doesn’t need to be perfect. Because I’m not perfect, I’m so grateful for how I look, but I’m more grateful for how I feel”

You stepped into yourself and you are confident. And how has that affected your business?

“Oh my God, my business is flying. Flying. I have gone from being, that little girl behind the desk, who was too scared to come out from the desk, who was quite happy to shout and demand and push, because, that’s how you run a business, of course that’s how you run a business, isn’t it?

And the reality of it is, no, you don’t. You open yourself up. Opening yourself up and  sometimes, people look and don’t quite like you, I actually don’t worry about that any more, because, that’s about them, that’s not about me, I love how I can connect, especially how I can connect with other women. Never had that in my life. Never, always surrounded myself with masculinity, I now crave female contact. I am networking, something that I have never done.

And you’re speaking, as well. You’re speaking onstage, aren’t you?

 

 

“I am and that is so out of my comfort zone, I love the fact that I push myself out of that comfort zone, and I do that, and what I get back from it, is also my true self and I speak from the heart, because that is massive, I love that, and I love how it makes me feel.”

Good, that’s superb, am I right in thinking that you had a background with Slimming World and you were a leader, is that right?

Well,I’ve done Slimming World for two years, I’ve lost four stone, which was the start. 

But it didn’t help me with not liking myself very much and then I got to a point where I was thinking to myself: How can you tell yourself, you can have 15 sins a day? What is that  you’re saying to yourself? 15 sins, sins, the word sins.

I didn’t understand any nutrition, and it was the fact that I really wanted to understand more about how my body worked, what I ate, fuelled it, being told, yeah, you can eat endless low-fat things, and all of those things, and of course, now it’s coming out, isn’t it all those sugar in low fat things. It’s an absolute eye-opener, starting this journey. Opening my mind to learning about nutrition and just educating, educating myself.

 

I understand what it all does, it’s not about restriction, it’s about education.

Excellent. Brilliant. Inspiring words. Thank you so much, Sandra.

“No, thank you. As you know, my famous words are, everybody needs Adele in their live, So grateful you came into my life, so thank you.”
