IN HER OWN WORDS IZZY TELLS TRIB3 HER INCREDIBLE WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY
Hi my name is Izzy Dunning I am 23 years old, I have always really struggled with my weight as I am 100% an emotional eater.
My weight loss journey started when I saw a photo of myself at a family party 5 and a half years ago I was HUGE, from that day I started my weight loss journey. My starting weight was 16 stone and my target weight was 10 stone.
I researched long and hard for a diet that I thought I could do, I didn’t find any that I thought I had the will power to do on my own so I found a personal trainer. He was great and personalised a 10 week programme for me; including all my meals and exercises for me to complete 5 days a week (when I started I couldn’t even walk without being out of breathe). I saw him twice a week throughout the 10 week programme which kept me going, at the end of the 10 week programme I had lost 2 stone in total.
When I finished my 10 week programme, I carried on doing the programme he had set me, however I wasn’t as strict and did allow myself 2 cheat meals a week, with this I did loose another two and a half stone and felt amazing! I then hit a plato last year and was struggling, I couldn’t seem to get below 11/11 and a half stone no matter what I tried to do.
I found out about TRIB3 and thought I’d give it a go, I attended my first session in February 2017 and I lost my last stone and a half, I hit my target weight of 10 stone in July 2017 and I have managed to keep it off. I do eat very healthily during the week but I do have cheat days and some days I just have a wobble with food but I now know I can do this and it is acceptable as long as I get back on it when I am ready.
It has been a roller coaster of a journey and far from easy, it has taken me nearly 6 years but it has been worth it!!!
WELL DONE IZZY
