Julie’s Weight Loss Journey
What do you call a person who has a vision of the future for themselves that they are compelled to realise?
I met one such lady in March 2017. Julie came to see me after having a long-standing battle with excess weight. What struck me about Julie was that she had a compelling vision to run a full marathon on by 2019. At 47 years of age with a weight of 140.6 kg I had some conflicting thoughts going on in my mind, however by the end of our consultation her energy and the passion of how she believed in this vision completely bowled me over.
Julie had her weight loss surgery in May 2017 amidst doubts that her family members were casting on her, that she was taking the easy way out. However, I knew that Julie took every bit of advice to her heart, letting nothing deter her from seeing herself crossing the finish line of a full marathon.
