- My results 'thus far'......
Like many Australians I watched and admired Lisa Curry throughout her swimming career. I was impressed by her comebacks AND subsequent brilliant performance in New Zealand in 1990 at the Commonwealth Games. Incidentally, during her 23 year swimming career she collected 24 Gold medals, 21 Silver and 8 Bronze medals at International Competitions!
My first experience of being 'up close' to Lisa, was when she was Guest Speaker at a Business Women's Breakfast in Townsville in the 1990's. I was totally captivated by her raw honesty and openness. For the next 15+ years, EVERY time she'd come to Townsville, I'd be there in the audience to listen and be inspired yet again! I even wore Hot Curry bathers and taught myself how to improve my stroke in freestyle! Aside from being a truly great Motivational Speaker, Lisa is an all round genuinely NICE person. From day dot, that had always impressed me. No ego. Just genuine, down-to-earth Lisa.
In August 2012 I heard about the KiSS program Lisa had created and checked it out. Having been very fit & active all through my 30's, 40's & into my 50's, I hated that 'middle age' and self indulgence had caught up. (what I used to be able to 'get away with' I no longer could, and had gained 15kg of bodyfat!). I felt uncomfortable and fat & frumpy and was very unfit. Yet it took more than a month for me to get to that point of "gotta wanna" and get started on Lisa's program!
On 24th September 2012 I signed up to Lisa's KiSS Club, and joined the Online Forum on Facebook for additional support and motivation. I cleaned out the fridge and I took my 'before' photo and was actually shocked at just how FAT I had become! Clearly, I'd been in denial for some time!
To date, I have lost more than 12.5kg of body fat, I've created lean muscle mass, I've gone down 2 dress sizes, AND I've become fitter and stronger than I've been in years. Suffice to say - Lisa's KiSS program works! In fact at 59 I am now far stronger in my upper body and through my core than I ever was during my 25+ years as a long distance runner!
What excites me, is that what Lisa has created is so "do-able". Seriously! Let's face it - if a 59 year old woman, travelling Australia in a caravan with her husband with no real access to 'work out partners', gyms or fitness clubs etc. can get results YOU CAN TOO!
And I've managed to do it on my own - because it IS "do-able".
I get support and encouragement online. I get my exercise & nutrition documents weekly together with videos, so I can learn the 'how to' AND I get to keep all this info for life. Because it's not a fad or a 'quick fix' - it's something I can continue to do both exercise and nutrition wise for the rest of my life. AND it's affordable! PLUS the food is all natural, easy, everyday stuff! I've learnt to 'shop around the outside of the supermarket' where the unprocessed, fresh food is!
Positive People in my life? YES! Absolutely! Recently, I was very fortunate to be able to 'follow' Lisa (literally) on her One Life, One Chance Roadtrip whilst she was on her road trip through Victoria. I attended her Free Seminars as she visited Camperdown, Warrnambool, Portland and Casterton and was inspired every time! I attended all the training sessions at each of those towns PLUS Lisa and I got to do a workout together! Just the two of us. That was AWESOME! (and bloody hard work, for both of us!), but it also showed just how incredibly giving she is.
As a bonus, I was invited by Lisa to accompany her as she visited & spent time with a Special Needs group of adults at a Day Centre in Portland, followed by a visit to an Aged Care facility. This girl just continues to give & give & give!
So how can Lisa inspire YOU? Learn how easily you can improve your life by visiting her website www.LisaCurry.com.au or catch up with her as she tours Australia on her One Life, One Chance trip over the next 3 years! 100 Towns is the goal! Don't miss her :-)
