Hi, my name is Jodie Smith and I’m 46yrs old. Happily married for 29 years with 3 beautiful daughters.
Like everyone my life is busy and full on, so therefore I got quite happy over all the years with the way I looked and felt. It was a very comfortable place I was sitting.
Then on the 8th January 2012 I was faced with the most horrible thing I could have ever seen… i saw myself naked in front of a mirror. I was so upset with what I saw I could not believe it; I remember thinking to myself “How could my Hubby love me” “How could my daughters be happy with me.
I went to the chemist and got on the scales and the numbers I saw made me cry I was 100kg…Wow did i need the smack in the face. Things had to change.
That was what I needed the next day my life changed for the better I was about to start my journey.
I made the decision to join the gym and change the terrible eating habits, I had tried this many times but I mint it this time. I took on this challenge alone I was to embarrassed to have a Pt trainer at this stage as I had no energy, couldn’t do anything, running on the treadmill was way out of the question.
After 8 months of challenging myself I had finally learnt to eat better and do some average exercising I had lost a total of 21kg at this stage, Wow did I feel good, so I was ready for some extra help now as I needed to step up the goals.
I approached Chrissie asking her for some help, we discussed my last 8 months and she was so proud of me and advised she would love to take me on the next part of my journey.
Chrissie’s support was so over whelming both as a Pt Trainer and as a Friend having the faith in me that I could do more and also there was allot more to achieve.
Chrissie stepped up the mark and challenged me to a lot more exercise that I never new I could do I’ve even managed to learn to run on the treadmill…. and sweat oh my god I hate this feeling but secretly I’m enjoying it now.
Now I am 30kg lighter have done 2 challenges at the gym feel ever so PROUD of myself and to go from a size 22 to a size 10-12 is the most amazing feeling. My Hubby and daughters tell me all the time I’m Beautiful and they are Proud how can you ever get sick of hearing that.
I’m looking forward to seeing what else Chrissie has in store for me and I can’t wait to do the next challenge..
Chrissie you are truly amazing, you have gone so far out of your way to help me achieve so much already that I can’t thank you enough
What a trainer and what a friend you are…
