“I joined Huba and did a thorough clean-up of my kitchen cupboards,” says Sheree. She sought help with preparing healthier grub through FitChef, a meal-delivery service, and went to training sessions twice a week, doing high-intensity functional training with a PT. “Ungainly, unfit and very afraid, I started personal training with my daughter-in-law, who smashed her goal in no time and now goes to group sessions. I continued for a while, then resorted to listening to my old negative self and I dropped out,” she says. “I made every excuse possible and began to affect my loved ones terribly with my inability to get out of the hole I had dug for myself.” Eventually, Sheree pulled herself together to drop a total of 30 kilos.
