Simone Sowade

My  Success Story

I have lost 62.9 kg so far and am exercising 5 times a week.  I am doing Cardio three times per week and Power Plate twice a week.

Before my operation, I was wearing a size 28 and now I’m a 12 and sometimes even a 10!

My 20-year-old daughter and I are sharing clothes!

My shoe size was an 8 and now I’m a 6!

My whole outlook on life has changed. I am loving life and living it to the fullest. I have made new friends and it has broadened my horizons….

I am truly happy for the first time in 20 years and am finding myself again.
