Looking out my window today it is cold and grey and dreary… what I need is something to look forward to next year that is the complete opposite.

Oh yeah I have it

The Too Fat to Run health and happiness retreat in Rhodes in May.

This years retreat was incredible (you can read about it here) and I simply can’t wait to take another group of ladies out on this life changing adventure.

Its 5 months since the May retreat so I thought I would ask the ladies who came on the retreat this time round how life is different now they are home, and what they got from the experience….

Not sure I can find the words really, but I’ll try. Is it really only five months ago? It feels like my life as changed so much. I lost my fear of trying something new (the retreat was the first time I had travelled out of Perthshire on my own) so just going was a massive achievement for me. I am so much more active now, run regularly and have found a support network that really works for me. I have tried to use the stamina and strength that I found through running in other aspects of my life. I now have goals that I look forward to achieving and have much more belief in myself and my ability to achieve them. I met people who I am now lucky enough to call my friends and they help me do things I would never of dreamed of otherwise!

Since my hypnotherapy session with Donna I have been literally freed from the weight of diet and food obsession. I now eat to appetite, stop when I’m satisfied and have no stress around food whatsoever. I’ve lost 6 kilos since the retreat (a stone) and am still losing it.  I was already running regularly and practicing yoga, but I loved a special session run by Julie which I can’t give too many details on as I think she might do it again next year!

I gained belief in myself and lost self doubt. I came away from Rhodes with new life long friends.
I try new fresh healthy foods now and this is a big thing for me (the food was amazing). I cant explain in words the support from the Julie and the team and from the fellow ladies on the retreat. I came away with so much more under my belt then simply running. Oh and i have not laughed so much on a daily basis for years

I took a lot from the meditation and I learned sometimes silence is actually a good thing and being still. It was such an amazing experience I also learned to push myself when we did hill sessions. I was so so proud of myself and I have been doing that in everyday life meditation is a regular part of my day and I push myself to the best of my ability weather its physical, college or personal. It was such a life changing trip and I was lucky to go with such amazing ladies. xxx

I gained an amazing group of new friends, more confidence, a reminder that taking time for and doing things for yourself isn’t selfish or a waste of time but essential for your wellbeing. I’ve started running regularly, I eat better, I’ve done a couple of 5k ‘races’ which I never dreamed I’d do (and probably still wouldn’t have without the first being a retreat meet-up!) and signed up for a couple of 10ks. Sometimes I wonder who I am now! Particularly when I looks at a washing line full of exercise gear or realise that the thing I’m most excited about on my days off is trying a new running route.
