TRANSFORMATION-INSPIRATION: SIMONE CORBETT
Changing one’s lifestyle habits in the short, medium and long term is easier said than done. Strength of character and determination often make a difference in this process, especially when moments of discouragement arise. Throughout the process of transforming her lifestyle, Simone never stopped believing in herself and never lost sight of her desire to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Congratulations Simone!
🖤 WHAT KIND OF TRANSFORMATIOM DID YOU EXPERIENCE?
I underwent a physical and a mental transformation.
💛 WHEN DID YOU START YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY?
🖤 WHY DID YOU START YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY?
I wanted to look and feel better about myself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. What really put things in motion was I got on the scale and weighed myself. I was horrified of the results and I told myself I got to do something about this… and so I did.
💛 WHAT HABITS HAVE YOU CHANGED?
I changed my relationship with food. Food has been my emotional comfort for so many years, which was the main cause of my weight gain. I swap the junk for healthier options. Also when I would get into those feelings instead of eating my problems away I worked out. Whatever I was feeling, it would start in the gym and ended in the gym. After each workout I would walk out feeling better then when I went it.
🖤 WHAT HAS BEEN THE OUTCOME AND WHAT ARE THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF YOUR NEW LIFESTYLE?
Being more active, loving myself more each day, eating better has becoming easier rather than challenging. Also my clothes fit and look better on me. Did I forget to mention I lost over 100 pounds! :)
💛 WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO UNDERTAKE A JOURNEY SIMILAR TO YOURS?
Losing weight is more mental than anything. You have to channel your mindset to believing that you can do this because YOU CAN! I'm not going to lie: it's not an easy process. There have been times where I wanted to just give up. I'm sure anyone can relate but I didn’t give up and you shouldn't either. If I did, I wouldn’t be where I am now. I still have more work to do but I'm far past where I was before. I'm truly grateful and proud of myself.
