How Nadia went from a size 18 to size 10

Nadia has lost an incredible 38kgs at Fernwood Capalaba since joining in 2016. Read about what motivated her to take on her incredible transformation.

"What inspired me to make a change in my lifestyle was my two daughters. In 2015 I became a single mum and just never had any energy for them and I didn't want to do anything. I knew I needed to make a change.

When I first joined Fernwood in 2016, I weighed 98kgs. I had never joined a gym in my adult life, I had no confidence and I was so miserable.

From the day I joined, I knew it was going to change my life.

I started off by going three days a week and slowly worked up to going six days a week. I started to gain my confidence back and see a real change in my overall personality! The weight started coming off and the more I saw it go, the harder I worked.

Fast forward to 2017 and one of my goals was to hit my 30kg weight loss milestone. In less than 11 months, I did it! I went from a size 18 to a size 10, I now weigh 60kgs and have lost 38kgs so far. I owe a lot of this to my experience at Fernwood, not only for the convenience of the 24/7 gym, but also for the support I have gotten from other members and staff.

But the biggest achievement is having my nine-year-old daughter tell me how proud she is of me that I lost all weight. There is no greater feeling than having your family be proud of you! I am so proud of how far I've come and feel so much better. I eat right and I religiously work out six days a week.

I am not yet at my goal weight but I am far closer than I have ever been before. My goal for 2018 is to do half a marathon."
