Yes I'm fancy, I have a personal trainer.

What’s the best thing about having a personal trainer? You’re thinking it’s the results you see after getting dedicated, tailored one on one sessions with a fitness professional, aren’t you? WRONG. It’s getting to feel all fancy saying that you have a personal trainer.

I still can’t quite believe I fork out for a PT; I’ll be voting Tory next if I carry on with this kind of behaviour.*

Jodie, my trainer, is absolutely amazing and has helped me go from looking like a right butterball to a healthier, happier version of me.

I feel sick & anxious letting anyone see that hideous* picture of me on the left so hence why I'm posting this at 4am on a Saturday & will most likely delete it in a few hours. Obviously it's a really bad angle and I don't think I ever did look quite *that* bad but I had let myself go. Anyway, the difference between these two pictures is roughly a year and I'm so happy I made positive changes. I was in a horrible place when the before picture was taken & had stopped going to the gym and eating healthy, for various reasons. I'm only 5'1 so even a couple of extra pounds on me looks a lot. Training with @jodiemartinpt once a week has got me completely back on track and I'm almost the same size I was before I piled on all the weight. It's not just the weight loss that the sessions have helped me with; I'm also learning to love and like my body more, getting physically fitter and stronger and taking more of a care in my appearance generally. Self care innit. 💪🏽 PS * I know that you shouldn't lose weight & hate your "fat" former self and it's dead unhealthy to be associate your happiness & self worth with your dress size – I'm working on it. #beforeandafter #weightloss #personaltrainer #personaltraining #girlswholift #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #gym #healthy #instafit #weights #transformation #weightloss #bodytransformation #fitnesstransformation #fitness #workout #health #gains

*It hurt me to even just type that as a joke.
