I have learned to put my health first then let everything else come together on it's own. It is working for me. I've lost 4kgs! I'm starting to gain more energy and learning to be mindful of my food choices and portion sizes. Trying new foods has changed everything.
With some help, support and guidance I have taken back control of my body. I am more concerned about the quality of the food that I eat and how it’s prepared. I “spend” less on junk and more on the things that I really enjoy. I’ve lost eleven pounds, but more importantly, I feel really good!
This is a brilliant initiative from D.V.A. I wouldn't enjoy the fitness that I have or the drive to continue without it. The instructors involved are patient and dedicated to their task.
