30 Oct A poem by former client, Mary
This week’s blog is a special one! We have a poem written by a former client, Mary Clifton who recently completed a lose weight with achieve course in Banbury! We are so pleased that Mary had such a great experience with us at Achieve Oxfordshire and would love if her words inspire any one to give the course a go…
I was fat and sluggish, and my joints were stiff and sore,
I joined Achieve Oxfordshire and leggings new, I wore.
Frances introduced me to Tai chi, soft and kind,
“I can do this” I thought, and to the task I set my mind.
At each class, I wondered whatever I would learn,
each time was a little harder and I began to feel the burn.
I progressed onto circuits and used resistance bands,
it was then I noticed, the fat had gone off of my hands.
My hips no longer grumble and my knees I now can bend,
I realise that exercise is becoming my best friend.
With Frances’ help and encouragement, getting me to move around,
when she asked me to do a star jump, I nearly left the ground!
I’m losing weight and feeling better in body and in mind,
the exercise is hard, but it’s worth putting in the time.
So, join a course like I did and bend and stretch and sweat,
getting healthier is serious and something never to regret.
My husband is happier having a better looking wife,
and putting all the jokes aside, it may have saved my life!
