Cork mum of three shares secret to incredible 3 and a half stone weight loss


A Cork mum of three has shared her secret to her incredible three and a half stone weight loss.

Anette Fitzgerald from Killeagh in Cork shed over three stone after years of struggling with her weight.

Anette told RSVP Live how she was motivated to kick start her journey after she was unable to find a dress that fit for her daughter’s communion:

“I had always struggled with my weight all my life. I was heavy as a child as well. I had tried numerous weight loss programmes and they just didn’t work for me. I’d lose weight but I’d always put it back on with more.

“It was last March that I got serious coming up to my daughter’s communion in May. I had been looking everywhere for something to wear and I couldn’t find anything that suited me right. So I came home and was a bit annoyed.

“I was sitting at home on the couch with a slice of chocolate cake and a coffee and Middleton Healthy Hub just popped up on my Facebook page and I went in the following week and that’s how it all started.”

Anette credits the support of the hub along with learning how to fuel your body with the right foods leg to her stunning transformation:

“Once they helped me get my nutrition right everything started working with me. By the time my daughter’s communion came around I was already down a dress size.”

“The support in the Hub made such a difference. They focused more on the nutrition to feed my body with the right foods that I needed more so than a plan. You’re cooking everything from scratch which is great because you know what’s in every ingredient.

Anette acknowledges that weight loss is more than just physical change:

“I feel so much more confident in myself and I have more energy. At one stage the kids were training and one of the mums asked me to go for a walk while they’re training and I was stuck in the car crying because I had no energy to even go out for a walk. But now I would run laps around it!

I’m 48 and I was thinking okay it’s time to cop on because my kids are still young and I wanted to be able to do things with them. I found I couldn’t do anything because I had no energy to even go out and play ball with them.

“I’m even sleeping so much better now and that had me exhausted. I’m down three and a half stone and still going strong!

“When I lost the three and a half stone it was all through food alone, I wasn’t going to the gym or anything – I was running after my youngest alright! The past couple of weeks now we have been doing the online fitness classes so that’s what I’ve been doing three times a week for toning up.”

And it’s not just Anette who is benefiting from it, the whole family are reaping the rewards too:

“My kids are eating more healthy as well because of what I’m cooking. It’s brilliant for them to see and they’re helping in the kitchen and all so it’s just been great.

“My husband Mike and I have been married for 12 years now, we got married in 2008 but I’m actually two stone lighter than when I got married. He’d love me whatever way I was but he is complimenting me more! My form would be much better which has been great for us too.

“I’m cooking healthier so he’s eating that as well so we’re all benefiting from it.

“When the hub is open you go in for your breakfast. It’s great to get that support and have some time after you drop the kids to school. I look forward to that every morning. Obviously it’s closed now but that’s my down time because usually in the afternoon then between homework and activities you’d be busy for the day. It makes sure I’m organized with my healthy snacks and I’m not snacking on chocolate or crisps.”

“The support you get there is just second to none. Even from the other clients, everyone bounces off each other with support, we’re all going through it together.

“Failed attempts were definitely discouraging. I had my daughter’s communion coming up and I would have tried anything at that stage. I wanted to do something for her, I wanted to look well on the day but for her as well.

“My progress and how I’m feeling definitely keeps me motivated. Even my hair, skin and nails are just so much better. I’m loving all the new energy I’m having. And I am loving all the new food and trying new things.

“I know now what nutrition my body needs and that’s what I’m going to feed it from now on.”
