“I’ve not got that much to lose really; I’ll never get rid of this tummy because I’ve had two children; I eat healthily so it can’t be my diet; I spin 4-5 times a week and burn so many calories, it’s weird how I’m not losing weight.”
A year ahead of turning 40, I had the idea that when that milestone birthday arrived, I wanted to feel as good as I could. Just 4 months ahead of the big birthday I started working with Nancy in face to face personal training sessions and I still strongly held onto all of the ideas and beliefs above.
From that very first session and beyond, Nancy educated me about diet and exercise and that has been the single most important factor that has enabled me to completely change the way I look and feel. As well as the face to face sessions, her constant support in between kept me on track.
When the big birthday milestone arrived, I honestly felt the best I have in my entire adult life – slim, fit and very importantly, strong. I had lost a significant amount of body fat and my body shape had changed beyond belief. When I reflect on the 4 month journey, it really wasn’t that difficult – I still had fun, socialised, went out for dinner, drank alcohol, went on weekends away and to parties – and therefore the changes that I have made feel totally sustainable
I really thought I knew what to do and that the reason I wasn’t losing weight or changing shape were related to factors beyond my control. How wrong I was!
Thank you, Nancy, for the education, the belief and the constant support. I truly feel Fabulous at Forty!

Turning the big 50 I decided I needed to try and sort my weight out. Having spent the past decade yo-yoing I managed to put on an impressive 8 kilos – good effort!! I’d tried numerous diets from protein only, cereals, shakes, to online household name companies. Initially weight loss was great but it was never sustainable. I’ve been attending Nancy’s classes for numerous years and was recommended by another pumper.
So how is Nancy different? She motivates you, her constant reassurance and contact helps to keep your focus. It’s not just about food but also exercise.
The food diary was excellent with great recommendations and assistance from Nancy. She is big brother constantly checking…there’s no point not recording as you are only cheating yourself. Plus I felt guilty as she’s such a sweetheart.
Exercise plans for home and gym were perfect and managed to fit in to my busy week. If I got bored Nancy would change the plans. Measuring – this is something I’d never tried, I’ve always judged weight loss by the daily standing on the scales. Sad as it is I know my weight for each milestone! The measuring was one of the key moviators. To start with I had no idea how I was fitting in my old warbrobe whilst only loosing minimal weight, it was lost inches.
The weekly weigh/measurement chart truly helped me.
What have I learnt:
– Everyone needs a Nancy in their life she makes weight loss fun, realistic and motivational.
– It’s not all about starving yourself but eating the right foods, plus have occasional treats.
– Exercise is as important as dieting.
– You need to be in the right mind set, I’ve always struggled with that but Nancy instils confidence and you want to succeed.
– Measurements this definitely worked for me.
Would I recommend Nancy? Without a doubt! She has a zest for life which is contagious. I not only didn’t want to let myself down but also Nancy. Nancy is a treasure!
Thank you Nancy 😘
