"I just joined one of your webinars. It was amazing!!! Thank you so much!!! Very useful and inspiring with lots of positive tips!" Tess

"What really helped me achieve the new me was the support and email classes from Fresh Start. I have had to learn how the new man thinks and after 50 years of bad eating habits, the retraining of the mind was Fresh Start’s biggest contribution. I tried new recipes and combinations, and discovered new exercises to fit into my life style. I have interacted with the online community and found that a source of motivation, recipes, hints and helps. I think Fresh Start helped to cement the decision to face the change." Scott

"I'd like to thank Fresh Start. This keeps me in touch with the other people who have had the surgery, and the reality of what one must do to keep achieving. Keep up the great work!" Alana

"With Fresh Start's help I was able to recognise exactly what it was holding me back. Now I’m able to recognise my weight loss achievements and I feel confident that I’m going to achieve my goal of being healthy." Jane

"I have found the program of great assistance. The recipes and nutrition guides have helped me to keep on track, and the mindset resources and exercise tips have really got me going! I have continued to lose weight, even 18 months after surgery, and I am now able to exercise freely, and I am attending a gym and aquarobics classes 4 times a week. This I would not have considered six months ago. So thank you. The program kept me focussed. I would certainly recommend it to others." Jenny

"Many thanks for all your support . It has made a substantially good impact on my health, as I have a much better idea of what to eat and what not to eat, how to and how much exercise to do, and no doubt, quite a few other things. I have received weekly emails with exercise programmes, recipes, mind-sets, and general coaching ideas to help me along the way, as well as being able to join the fortnightly group calls where you can talk to other people in the same situation as yourself. I have also been able to send emails specifically to Amber and Alex to get any answers to any problems that I have had along the way, and with no personal/family support, this has been a very valuable addition."  John
