Lean and Luscious Leanne…

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Success Stories

Another long awaited sharing of a testimonial I received from a gorgeous VIP in September of 2012.

I first heard from Leanne in October of 2011. I had met her a few years earlier at a business event and she had, unbeknownst to me, become a fan on my Facebook Page and been following me for some time.

There came a point that she felt the time was RIPE to do some work together. She had seen a naturopath for her complaints 3 years earlier, and whilst it helped somewhat, she still felt confused by all of the food information out there, was still struggling with digestive and IBS issues, was feeling foggy and lethargic and just not quite HAPPY, despite the sense she “should” be.

Additionally, being the mummy of 3 beautiful boys, and a full time business owner, she was struggling to lose the last of her baby number 3 weight, and was finding her memory and energy was failing her.

To put in a nutshell she just felt BLAH, KNEW she could feel so much better, and was ready to do something about it! And so our journey began 🙂

To say that Leanne has COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED her life is an understatement! This woman is a reformed POWER house and as time goes by, is becoming more and more and MORE energised, passionate and FIT! I often receive awesome email updates from her telling me which triathlon she is preparing to compete in, which new clean eating recipe she has discovered and is loving and how SUPER happy and on top of everything she is!

After baby number 3 Leanne’s weight settled at 84. She was around 74 kilo’s when we started our work together and now she is sitting at a lean and mean 64kg. Again though, the weight is truly a SIDE EFFECT of the INNER work that Leanne committed to with me.

It was such an honour to work with Leanne and to see yet another beautiful soul achieve their long desired dreams, as well as unleashing the REAL them into the world 🙂 DIVINE!

Enjoy her story and be inspired by yet another Yummy Mummy 🙂

“I was struggling with food ideas for my family and myself and with also suffering from IBS it was daunting to say the least.

I have gained so much since working with Bridget that my life has drastically changed.

Not only am I now down to my goal weight, my IBS has settled, my body feels clean on the inside and my mental state has improved out of sight.

I am so happy with all aspects of my life now.

Bridget is magic and a true gem.”

Super Fit Yummy Mummy!

Leanne AFTER

She is enrolled in at least 5 Triathlons at the moment! Just try and stop her! 🙂

How is inspiring is Leanne?

It just goes to show that there ARE no limits, no matter WHERE you are starting from, or how you feel NOW.

Mummy’s, ANYTHING is possible!

Leanne is now able to run the business, tend to house chores, look after her 3 boys and hubby, and has made training a big part of her life. When we have more energy, are in a good head space and enjoying life, SO MUCH more is possible in our days 🙂

If you too would like to access a renewed fountain of energy, shed the layers and just get IN to life, I would LOVE to hear from you.

Terrifically Transformed Tennille…

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Success Stories

I’m so happy to finally share this awesome Success Story with you 🙂

Miss Tennille and I began our work way back in March of 2011.

A 33 year old mummy of two, Tennille initially approached me regarding concern of her daughters weight issues and lack of confidence, yet after a little chat she realised that health in her family began with her. She wanted to role model a healthy love of self to her children, especially her daughter, learn how to be IN her body, connected to herself and be able to achieve and maintain a slimmer, fitter, stronger body forever after.

So, our work began, and the changes in Tennille came fast and on many different levels. Not just a physical transformation, but a TOTAL mind, body, soul shift.

To this day, Tennille is happier, fitter, sexier and more alive than she has ever been AND embarking on a NEW career as a dance teacher 🙂

AMAZE! 🙂

A complete testament to why I love this work so much and how far beyond just BODY it goes 🙂

Enjoy her story.

All my love,

BridgetJane

“Hi Bridge,

Wow! Where do I start?

Well, I remember when i first started with you that I didn’t have much faith in myself. This is due to all the times in my life that I had tried to “lose weight”, tried to “change” tried to “fix”, tried to resolve all my “issues”, only to be caught in a never ending cycle of diets, guilt and self-loathing. Physically every week I would experience a terrible headache or migraine, and I felt I had no confidence in my self when I went out in public due to how overweight I was. I pretended I was confident, but I loathed myself inside.  However, not having any faith in myself at all from my past failed attempts, I still signed up with your program and set an end result/goal for myself: Sustainable Transformation.

I have really loved your “holistic” approach to helping your clients on a mind, body spirit level.  Personally, this has helped me look at all areas of myself that were affecting my health, wellbeing and confidence.  You really helped me look at my stress levels, which unbeknownst to me were probably the biggest factor affecting my health and wellbeing.  I have majorly benefited from your “no weigh” policy.  What I’ve found is that the numbers on the scale are NOT important and in fact detrimental to my success.  What you have taught me is that it’s not about the numbers on the scale, its about how I feel about myself, and how confident I feel within myself. This advice has been invaluable.  When people tell me how great and healthy I am looking, they ask me how much weight I have lost.  I tell them that I don’t actually know. But I do know that if I jumped on the scales to look, and saw that it’s not as much as I thought or had hoped, it WILL send me into a downward spiral as it had many times in the past.  I don’t even need to know.  I feel great, I am two dress sizes less than when I started, and my confidence levels are sky high most of the time.  That’s all that matters to me.  The numbers on the scale do not matter any more. And I will probably never jump on any scales again. The numbers are irrelevant.

All in all, what this has led to is a way of eating and living that IS sustainable for me. I have eliminated the foods that do not serve my body and that make me sick, tired, lethargic and cause me migraines. These foods are dairy, gluten, wheat, grains, msg.  While it may seem restrictive to some and may not be for everyone, it is just right for ME. I have never felt or looked better, and believe me, it has taken me 34 years of yo-yo-ing to get to this point where my health and well being are more important to me than eating foods that make me sick.  (And my headaches only happen when I have a little too much to drink on the rare occasion – hehe 🙂  

I don’t think I would have got here Bridge were it not for your guidance to be aware of and listen to my body. I have tried to do it many times by myself in the past – with no long term sustainable success at all.

One day recently, of my relatives asked me if I have been on a diet. I had a think about that for a second, and for the first time in my life I said “No, I’ve just changed the way I eat.” Because I really had! I have never said this before. It was always, “yes, this diet, or that diet”, but I have realised that this time around it really has been a lifestyle change! Finally!! I have a way of eating and living that is perfect for what I want for my body, I feel healthy, confident, have high energy and I still get to eat the treats I most love – potato chips, hot chips, Loving Earth raw chocolate, coconuts, and have a sexy body at the same time 😉 And I enjoy healthy, living foods more than ever too! I never feel like I miss out.

Your service really has been invaluable.  I would recommend anyone who is wanting sustainable transformation in their health, well being and vitality to come to you. You are so dedicated to your clients and I have felt your energy, love and dedication to me over our time together.  You really do put your money where your mouth is so to speak 😉  Thank you for your love, support and guidance over our time together – I am so happy with the outcome and I really have achieved my end result – Sustainable Transformation!!”

Meet Magnificent Michelle

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Success Stories

I first met Michelle in July of 2008. To say she had been somewhat “hand-balled” by health professionals and doctors to date is fair. She, as well as her mother, were feeling very frustrated, yet they were determined to find answers. In their quest, they came across me :)I am so glad they did! Michelle is now firing along in life having completed her Diploma in an area of study she is passionate about, and now moving out of home and in with her boyfriend! Her confidence, self-acceptance and happiness have really blossomed!It has been incredibly fulfilling to work with Michelle and to see the changes it has meant not only for her life and self-reltionship, but also for her mum, who is incredibly proud of her beautiful daughter.Life is now flowing for Michelle and she can finally move on from something that was haunting her and holding her back for so long! 🙂

Here is what Marion, her mother, had to say:

“When my daughter first met Bridget, she was really struggling with her weight, food choices and motivation. She had recently joined a gym where she heard about a ‘nutrition guru’.

After some discussion together, we decided to set up a consultation with Bridget. The rest is history!!
Bridget hit on some key information that really helped my daughter begin to make very good food choices, eg she now always has a bag of carrots in the fridge at home and work for munching on when she is peckish, and she understands so much more about making lifestyle changes with food rather than to ‘diet’.
Now she has lost over 47 kg, feels so much healthier and loves being able to buy clothes off the rack that fit.
Prior to meeting Bridget, we had met with other dietary professionals but always came away feeling overwhelmed having been told information that really didn’t work for her. We are so glad to have met Bridget as she unlocked important weight loss keysthat have brought great success. Thanks Bridget!!!!” Marion, Buderim, QLDCongrats Michelle! You are an AWESOME inspiration to SO many people out there! Thank you for sharing your story! 🙂
