I joined Be Strong after being inspired by friends losing weight and achieving goals. I had never counted a calorie in my life, I thought I had a healthy diet besides the weekend ‘drinks and treats’.

I have learnt so much about food and drink I eat. Its true that Be Strong is a lifestyle change and not a diet.

I love attending group every Wednesday for exercise (much more fun than any gym) the weekly discussions are motivating and really make me think about what I’m doing. Rick, Rachel and members are so inspiring.

The website content is great for those days when you’re motivated, or when your not so motivated, I like looking back at discussions to keep me going. I love the recipes for trying new things. I feel healthier physically and mentally. I’ve almost lost a stone and I feel great.

Thank you for your support Rick and Rachel x
