The New Year is here – 2018 is in full swing and we hope it has started off well for all our clients and readers. What better way to encourage positive change and improvement than hearing how
others achieved success? Dwaine shares his story after seeing dietitian, Jessica Pieterse, from Nutritional Solutions Bryanston.
“After my trip to Mauritius with family I returned at 108Kg which is the before picture, this was around the end of July 2016.
For 6 months, I tried to lose the weight by running in a gym and making small changes to my diet however, I only lost 4Kg.
I went to Jessica as part of my 2017 new year resolution goals. I started off in mid-January 2017 weighing 104kg.
On the 29 July 2017, a year after returning from Mauritius, I weighed in at 88kg. I had lost 16kg in the 6 months from first starting the program with Jessica. I had also lost about 15cm off my waist.
The way I changed my lifestyle was that I followed the diet given to my dad and I as closely as possible. We often had conversations about how do we best manage alcohol intake. Another thing that worked for me was that I stopped going to gym but rather walked on average 5km every day. This habit soon developed into running at ParkRuns. I am proud to say that I have also managed to now break the 30-minute mark for the 5km. I find that even although I am no longer strictly following the diet, my idea of food has changed dramatically. I am eating a lot less at one given time, which is helping to keep my weight under control. My dad and I have both had awesome success with the diet and I must say the experience we had from Jessica has been amazing.
Jessica’s professionalism and personal touch has been amazing and I think that is what has given us both the attitude of we will do this because we want to and not because we should. 🙂
So, thank you, Jessica, for all your help and I know that from my side I will keep pushing to lose those last few kg’s.”
