Her transformation, after just 12 weeks is something so inspiring to all of us. It’s amazing to see – and hear – all of the amazing changes that rebounding can bring about.
Angela, with her incredible mindset, grit, determination and perseverance through such a difficult time, is a true hero, and such a deserving winner and bounti Academy member.
The way bounti has changed Angela’s life – and the lives of so many others – is the true reason, and driving force, behind why the bounti team do what we do. Her story is a true testament to, not only the fact that rebounding is so effective, but also the fact that hard work and a positive attitude is what really reap results.
“When I started the re-set challenge, I was at the heaviest I have ever been. I felt sluggish and unhealthy. I had tried for so long to lose weight, but with little success. A few years ago I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance and also have mild hypertension.
When I saw the challenge advertised, I just knew I had to join. I signed up and saw one of Lisa’s adverts introducing dietician, Carly Seager – I decided to sign up with Carly afterwards. After my first chat with her, I went for a number of blood tests to see where exactly my body was at. From there, I had my first consultation and she sent me an eating plan that I would follow for the challenge. With all my various ailments, I needed to be on a more specifically tailored eating plan.
The first few weeks were tough, and the sugar cravings were hard. On Women’s Day I signed up to do the bounti Marathon - a 2-hour long rebounding session. Lisa saying that she hoped to see us there was the motivation I needed to get started. Although I absolutely died during that marathon, it was also my turning point. I signed up for a number of the live classes and tried classes with most of the instructors. It actually became so addictive – I was hooked!
Unfortunately, I suffer from chronic reflux and had to have a gastroscopy. They did a biopsy during the procedure, so I wasn’t able to bounce for a few days afterwards. The night before my procedure, I was also bitten by a dog so landed up having a tetanus shot and being put onto a 5-day course of antibiotics.
I landed up having keyhole surgery in my abdomen, and my stomach wrapped and stapled. I had a hiatus hernia, which was contributing to my reflux, and had developed Barrett’s Oesophagus. I definitely credit my quick recovery to having a strong core from the all the rebounding and having a healthy eating plan. My body was ready for the operation.
During the re-set challenge, I stuck to my eating plan 100%. I'm proud to say that, to this day, I have still not had a cheat – except for a small banting brownie for my birthday celebrations, which was factored into my eating plan.
When the challenge ended, I had no urge to go back to my old ways, and have continued with my eating plan. When I started, it wasn’t just another diet. I needed to do this for me. It had to be a sustainable lifestyle change, not just a quick fix.
I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this good in years. I am happier, not as tired as I used to be, have much more energy and feel more productive in my day. I really look forward to my daily bounce! I have seen so many people talk about how good rebounding makes them feel, and I am overjoyed to finally say that I have also found my ‘bounti glow’.
I’m also proud to say that I have passed my bounti instructors course, and cannot wait to start sharing rebounding where I live.
I have lost about 3 dress sizes – my total weight loss from the challenge is 15.7kgs with a weekly average weight loss of 1.31kgs. I'm nearly 17kgs down in total!
I set goals when I started, as I am a goal-orientated person. My goal is to lose 20kgs in total and then a further 10kgs. The way things are going, I might be making a start on those last 10kgs very soon! After struggling for so long, I still cannot believe I have lost so much weight!
Not only do I feel so much better, but my health and my confidence have also improved. I was so excited to order from the bounti Athleisure Range and have it fit me – perfectly. My family is so proud of me for taking control of my life, and trying to get myself to a healthy state again. Most importantly, I am so proud of myself for what I have achieved over these 12 weeks.
Thank you to Lisa and the bounti team for this challenge and for helping me get my start. It has been a wonderful journey for me, and one that I intend to continue. What started as a 12-week challenge has ended up totally changing my life.”
