Hi, my name is Sarah Jane and I am a mother of two grownup children based in hertfordshire. Not many people have been on the roller coaster I have been on in life. I have achieved some remarkable things – my biggest achievement was losing 25 stone. People often ask many questions about my weight loss journey.
I believe I have been on this journey to help and inspire other people on theirs,
I was a chubby child with a potbelly. I was bullied at school and over the years I grew up dreadfully unhappy in myself. I never knew who I was. As the years went by, I got bigger and bigger. I attempted to diet, but as quickly as I lost the weight, I gained it back. I continued to yo-yo diet, until I ended up so big, I struggled to get around in everyday life. It was such a strain on my body and I struggled with the basics. To give you some idea, I had to go through a door sideways and hold myself in, My weight issues were caused by several things – that is a story for another day,
There were a couple of turning points that changed everything.
One day I was sitting with our family Doctor. He had seen me grow up, and both my children come into the world, . My son was very different from other children from his age group, The doctor sat down with me and explained that he is a very complex child. At the time my son was only 3 years old, the doctor said “I can tell you now the services for his needs are not very good. They are overstretched and as time goes on more and more cuts will be made in this area, the support for him is going to be very limited, this was proved to be true over the years,
He commented on how I was a trendy mum and how I’d done so well with him already. He then asked, “If you are not around, who will be there? Who will take him on? This child is going to need more support than the average child”. I looked at him and said there is no one I would trust him with. I had my children to raise and wanted to give them the life and the childhood I never had. I covered two chairs in the doctor’s room,
I struggled to breathe and to move around. The doctor weighed me. As I stood on the scales, I watched the needle carry on going round to its max. My last weigh-in was 30 stone. and I was bigger than then. At this point I was so big; he couldn’t even weigh me to get the true reading. He then asked again, “If you’re not there for the kids, who would be? What kind of life will they have?”
I remember walking out with the kids thinking I have got to do this for them if not for me. It was then I decided to cut myself off from the negative people around me – the people who put me down and told me I would never amount to anything. I was regularly told I would always be fat and have nothing in life. For the first time, I had realised that there was so much negativity in my ear that needed to go. So, I quit my job, left my kid’s father, , and embarked on my healing journey. I went through so much. I had no help from others, no surgery, no slimming clubs,
I Learnt to plan meals, looking at healthy food's options and slowly, incorporating health options in to my meals,
I was slowly building the foundations off a healthy life style, asking myself what does my body need to fuel it and repair itself, back then there was no laptops and social media so it was down to me just thinking about healthy options, i gave up driving and walk most places I needed to go be active in my daily life,
I got to the point where I could go to the gym four days a week. I would drop the kids off at school and walk to the gym where I would do classes and swimming. This was my life for one to two years. I would walk to the gym come rain or sun shine, I was building routines in to my daily life, keeping the kids active, I visualised what I wanted to achieve, how I wanted to look and I believed I could do it. I educated myself on food – nutrition vitamins and minerals. I did supplement my diet with vitamins and mineral where I needed to.
I would visualise each day on how I could help myself, asking myself what do I need , this is where I learnt not to be a follower to do what was right for myself, we can all be pulled off a track easily with are everyday life so I built my healthy life style into my life for what was right for me,
I found not telling people what I was doing & just doing it for myself kept me on track, My goals were so much easier to achieve without the negative people telling me what I couldn’t do & listen to other people opinions.
I soon found myself sitting in training and seminars, building my knowledge with people from all over the world, learning deeper aspects of the body, I would just go off at weekends or the evening using my time wisely, attending workshops & talks this entered me into the world off self-devolvement. sometimes things were not for me some was, there was things I dismissed in the early Days, which I found resonated more with me late on in my journey. it's all about the right timings off life,
I learnt open new ways of thinking and new life skills sets that I could use in everyday life,
I started to look at how I spoke to myself & created positive thinking being accountable for my action & choices,
Look Guy's , We all hit struggles in life and brick walls in life, In life we hit roller coaster & life chanaglleges , yes life can be a struggle, I had more than most, but I soon learnt to brush myself down and look at what I need & let go, to be able to move on in life, not keep myself stuck, by keeping a good routine in place not to over think things, using the skills i had acquired along the way,
Over the last 20 years I learnt it was not just about the food we eat and how we think, I learnt how to work with the body natural energy field, I wanted to work naturally as possible, I found many ways of doing this through a holistic approach, by Stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new thing's opening my mind to new possibilities, looking on how I could help my body naturally, the one thing I did have to do is have a stone off skin remove from a overhang surgical removed but heal so quickly and doctors was very surprises at my quick healing time, it was the only option, the rest of my skin with routine and the right nutrition & techquines I learnt I did well, People would know looking at me I was ever as big as I was,
