Let us give you a quick introduction to this amazing woman who calls herself “Se7en”.
Mother of 8 (yes, EIGHT) children, and avid blogger, we were thrilled to have Se7en become our Healthy Weight ambassador in March of 2017. A year ago, Se7en began a journey back to healthy living. She was tired of not being able to keep up with her kids, she was tired of eating all the wrong things to try and keep up with her kids, and she was just tired. Really tired.
“Motherhood can do that to you. I was faced with a decision to hide behind the fact that I was a busy mom of eight kids, and lose the chance to get moving again… or say, yes I can do this and step forward and sign up,” says Se7en. And so her journey with the SSISA Healthy Weight programme began, and she has achieved some amazing results!
SOME OF SE7EN’S ACHIEVEMENTS AFTER ONE YEAR:
- 20 kg lighter
- 20 minutes off her ParkRun time
- Completed the 5.6km Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Fun Run
- Completed the Gun Run 10km
- Training for the Two Oceans Half Marathon
“And I cannot tell you how many dress sizes smaller. More than all that, there is a spring in my step and a sparkle in my eye that I thought I had lost forever. It has totally been worth every single very early morning workout.
The one thing I have learnt from this year is: Don’t Ever Give Up on Yourself. My dreams have gotten bigger, my goals have stretched further. And if you think you can’t start moving – for whatever reason – chances are you can, and the sooner you start, the better”, says Se7en.
