Living My Life to the Fullest
Ritu Ghumman (37-year-old veterinarian)
My journey with happy body began in 2007 and I have not looked back since. I am a working mom of three children ages 7, 6 and 1 year old. Happy body has changed my way of living, eating and thinking. It has taught me how and why to make the right choices.
I came across an article about happy body in the Gentry magazine two years ago and the article was very inspiring to me because I was trying to find a weight loss program that would help me shed my last 15lbs after my second child was born. I had been with personal trainers working out three times a week for almost 3years before I found Aniela and Jerzy. I had pretty much tried all the weight loss programs that are available on the peninsula but my last 15lbs just stayed on me.
I remember meeting Jerzy and Aniela for the first time back in 2007 in their warm home in Woodside and listening to what they had to say about happy body and the best part for me was when they took me to the meditation room. That just completely took me by surprise. Meditation at a weight loss program! I soon realized that happy body is not just about losing weight but about changing your lifestyle. It sculpts your body and mind. It improves you physically and mentally.
I lost 12lbs in just 6weeks right after joining happy body. I was ecstatic. I just couldn't believe it!
Well, three months into the happy body program I was pregnant with my third child. I tend to gain a lot of weight with my pregnancy and this time I ended up gaining 60lbs. I came back to Aniela and Jerzy 4months after the delivery and have lost all my 60lbs. I feel great and I look great not just because I have lost weight but I have also learnt how to live my life to the fullest.
