Sharon’s was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism at age 15 which resulted in her to progressively increasing her weight each year despite the amount of work she was doing at the gym and the good nutritional food she was eating. By the time she was 22 her weight increased to 145 kg. Under the advice of her doctor she under took Gastric Sleeve Surgery in an attempt to combat the weight gain.
Three weeks after surgery, Sharon contact Break Habit to help her with her weight loss and so began her training. Along the way Sharon did more than just bring her weight down from 145 kg to 70 kg a loss of 75 kg, she learnt about herself, she grew in confidence and self esteem and developed a love for health and fitness.
The number 1 objective was always to bring the weight down. Incremental weight targets were set to achieve which help to break down the large goal into smaller manageable sizes that became the main focus.
One of the main problems with Gastric Sleeve surgery is the loss of muscle mass as well as fat. Therefore a critical component of the training program was it lean more towards weight training using heavier weights and less reps rather than muscle toning which uses lighter weights and more reps. This approach combined with an appropriate diet help maintain the muscle mass whilst the weight loss continued.
