I Nursed my husband at home for 9 months which led to me not getting out very often. We had carers three times a day.
My Husband died suddenly and I was left with just visits from my family. I'd lost my confidence going out.
I also needed a knee replacement which was told I needed to lose weight for and had to do gentle exercise.
I Saw a message on Facebook from Richie and new I wouldn't go to a class as that would be taking my self out of everything safe sitting in the house.
I got in touch about 1-1 coaching.
Richie arrived at set time and date. We talked for first session about me and what goals I wanted to achieve and how he could help me get back to being me.
For the first few weeks as he came to the house I had every excuse why I wasn't able to do any training.
I thought my main issue was my weight but after talking to Richie I realised that I actually just wanted to have a better quality of life for my self and to get back to being the sociable person I once was.
8 weeks later I'm going out more, have few new hobbies and I'm back Volunteering at the local community centre with I love.
Still trying hard with a healthy diet but as I'm happier in my self my weight is less of an issue.
I met him today for a walk in wind and rain thought we would cancel.
We don't do cancel or can't anymore.
Having someone to listen to you outside of your family is such a great thing. I kept telling family I was fine. Richie gave me so much encouragement and praise.
I've just had my 70 birthday booked three small holidays and he keeps saying it's my time now and not to waste my life.
