I was very much cut off, I only ever left my house to go church on sunday and do my shopping on friday. I was not active at all, all my activity was in my head but that was not doing me any favours. I had no self esteem or motivation. So my doctor referred me to the center which I knew nothing about. I met with my mentor Hilna and we had a long chat, we arranged to meet at the centre and do a walk as I did not mind walking. This was a wet day and muddy but i still came and did it. After my walk that monday Hilna encouraged me to try the circuit class i really did not want to participate, but she did not give up. Hilna joined me in the class that day. Thus all happened back in February we are now in May and i can say today that i am more active the centre has helped to change my life style, i love meeting new people now and I didn’t before, i have changed the way i eat, and the way I see myself. My self esteem is at a all time high and i have in all gone from 17stones to 15.4stones to this current day. I truly feel that the centre has given me a new lease of life, and even after my 13weeks i will still attend even if it is only one class a week.
