Leanne’s Health Scares Leads to a Healthy New Life

Every year, The Natural Way officially recognize the great efforts of our fabulous clients and run an annual ‘Clinic Slimmer’ competition.  This year we have six (6) fantastic finalists and I will write about each one of them over the coming weeks.  Let’s kick off with Leanne Casey from Collingwood Park. Leanne’s story is not only inspirational but highlights how a health scare can kick-start a healthy life-change.

Lovely Leanne after losing 14.7kg

Leanne’s story is typical of most women we see in our weight loss clinics – up until her 40’s she found that she could control her weight quite easily but once her hormone’s started to change, so too did her weight.  Leanne experienced menopausal symptoms in her early 40’s and coupled with the gradual weight gain, Leanne felt ‘ out of control’  emotionally as she suddenly found herself to be much more moody and irritable.

However, it was just 5 days before her 47th birthday, that Leanne suffered a double stroke and spent 8 days in hospital:  as the cause of the stroke could not be determined, so she was advised not to exercise.  Six months later, when Leanne got the all clear, she was horrified to see that she had gained 8kg in 6 months – and that was all the motivation she needed to get her weight & health back under control.

Leanne worked with Sue Jones, a client of The Natural Way who had lost 30kg, and feeling motivated by her excellent results, Leanne joined the program too.  Leanne’s determination and support by Tomas at The Natural Way Ipswich, has seen her successfully lose 14.7kg and 97.5cm.  Leanne has achieved the 2 goals she set herself at the beginning of her weight loss journey:  she now weighs in at under 60kg and has run 10km in under 60 minutes.  To think that only 18 months ago she suffered a stroke…what a transformation.
