Height: 1.65 m
Mum-of-one Rosanna lost 22kg. Since then she's ran the Sydney City2Surf and become a Weight Watchers Leader.
Always the bigger chick
Throughout high school years I was always a bigger girl. This made me self conscious about my weight from an early age and I constantly worried what others thought of me. To make it worse, I tried to lose weight using diet pills, appetite suppressants... even acupuncture but I failed every time.
Following bad habits
As adulthood crept by, so did my weight. I was 89kg and a size 18. 90kg on the scales was the number I did not want to reach! I always wanted an easy quick fix when it came to weight loss. I'd tried Weight Watchers before and knew it worked, but my heart wasn't in it previously. This time, really wanting success my fourth attempt just clicked!
With a little help from Online
I loved using the Online Plan Manager
as it provided 24/7 support whenever I needed it. I tracked all my food and exercise and entered my weight each week. It was inspiring to watch the graph go down.
Since losing weight, I competed in the City2Surf and I ran the entire 14kms! I finished in 93 minutes. I qualify to move into the faster group for this year. From someone who loathed exercise, I now love it. I'm studying to become a personal trainer!
Becoming a Leader
Weight Watchers really is the best program because you can do and eat what you like! Becoming a Leader has been the best fun. I love getting to know members as there are some really great people out there. Sharing my journey helps them see we all go through the same ups and downs.
My top advice
Measure, measure measure!
The best thing I ever did was take my measurements. If I didn’t I would never have known that I have lost a total of 98cm off my body. For the months when the scales were not so kind the measuring tape may have been!
Be true to yourself
If you really want it make it happen then make YOU a priority. My son spent three or four hours a week in the gym crèche at the beginning of my journey. I did feel guilty at times but realised I needed to do this for me, and now he is benefiting
If you lie you are only lying to yourself.
