Women's Health (South Africa) - - WEIGHT LOSS -

“Be­ing a bit over­weight was the norm for me and I had ba­si­cally ac­cepted it,” says Fal­lon of her life be­fore sport. At school, she dab­bled in swim­ming, but never con­sid­ered her­self par­tic­u­larly fit or healthy. Her par­ents had al­ways fed her nu­tri­tious food, but what Fal­lon ate in be­tween (choco­late, burg­ers, pies and dough­nuts) was her true vice. Since swim­ming was the only thing she en­joyed, labour­ing in the gym was a chore. “I at­tended a few aer­o­bic classes a week, but that, along with the junk food eat­ing, didn’t do any­thing for my weight loss,” she says.
