It’s a life changer
I joined Be Strong around a year ago, after hearing my running friends talk about how amazing it was. I set a small achievable target as I didn’t really have a lot of weight to lose. It isn’t all about what you see on the scales, but how you also… feel inside. I have made lots of new friends, got fitter, become more social and got out of a rut!! It is also food for my mental health too. Best decision I ever made thanks to the support of Rick and Rach 😁 Read more “It’s a life changer”
Be Strong has changed my life!
I’ve struggled with my weight for so long! I’ve tried loads of different diets and crazy weight loss tablets in the past and I’ve never managed to sustain a steady weight loss until now. Be Strong has shown me how to look at food differently, it has changed my relationship… with food, and has taught me how to love myself again! I’ve lost 1 stone 8 pounds so far and I am so excited for the future! I’m at the lowest weight I’ve been at since I was 17! Read more “Be Strong has changed my life!”
I feel part of the Be Strong community
I joined as an online member in January and have already lost 7lb. I am also gaining a greater understanding of calories and that to achieve my target I need to put the work in, move more and take responsibility for what I eat. As I lived in Buckingham, and… now on the Isle of Skye, and wasn’t able to get to meetings, I was excited that Rick and Rachel made Be Strong available online and happily signed up. My first contact with Be Strong was following my friends weight loss, seeing them get repeated stone wristbands and how their movement and body confidence soared. Thanks for making the jump and adding online membership and all the support you are providing. Read more “I feel part of the Be Strong community”
I joined Be Strong after seeing a post that a member had posted on social media. She was the same age as me, I had been to secondary school with her so I knew it was true and not an enhanced photo. I couldnt believe how much weight she had… lost and how well she looked. I then thought if she can do it so can I. I had no self confidence although I always smiled it hid how I really felt. I didn’t go out, I even missed a school reunion because of how I looked in the photos of the previous one. I hated clothes shopping and looking in mirrors, nothing I wanted to wear looked good on me, I was covering up with “baggy clothes” which were getting more like fitted clothes. I was nervous that first meeting on 20th June 2018, I didn’t know what it would be like, I was scared of being named and fat shamed. I shouldn’t have worried (other than when I found out how much I actually weighed!) The Group was fantastic. Everyone made me feel welcome, the pep talk to group made sense. The first exercise glass made me realise how truly unfit I was. But I wasn’t put off, there were people of all shapes, sizes and ages, we were all there for the same reason. Rick, Rachel and Be Strong have changed my life, I have followed all the advice and pep talks, I drink more water now than I have ever done, I know my calories, I think before I eat anything. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. At this weeks weigh in my total lost to date is 4st 10.5 lbs, I am now only 9lbs away from my goal, I am fitter and healthy that I have been in decades. I am 50 this coming Friday, I’m not going to be 50 frumpy and fat, I feel fabulous and I believe my life has begun again thanks to this fantastic group, I will be forever grateful to them all.

I joined Be Strong about a year ago and can honestly say it is the best decision and life choice I have ever made. I have struggled with my weight for ever! I have tried various other weight loss groups and stuck to plans for a while but never for… long…..Rick and Rachel are amazing and something has finally clicked in my brain! The groups are friendly, informative and motivational, and other group members, along with Rick and Rachel, make me feel I am part of something special. I look forward to reading the weekly newsletter available to members, which reinforces the weekly talks. Since joining I have lost nearly two and a half stones, have a healthy bmi, am motivated to eat healthily and attend every week for the inspiration and motivation from others and the really enjoyable, inclusive exercise. What is there not to love! The membership fee is excellent value and the support from Rick and Rachel, if you need it, is fantastic. Thank you Be Strong. Read more “Transformational!”
