Children often draw their parents, and these touching portraits cannot but touch. But kids depict dads and moms honestly and without embellishment, so adults don't always look perfect in drawings. In the case of Wendy Candlish from Australia, such a kalyaka-malaka played a decisive role. After seeing her portrait painted by her young son, the woman realized that she urgently needed to change her lifestyle. Since then, the mother has been actively engaged in fitness, as a result of which she has changed beyond recognition.
In 2019, 40-year-old Wendy Candlish from Canberra came to pick up her eldest son from school. She noticed new children's drawings on the window in the classroom. One of them depicted a woman with a huge belly and the caption: "Being fat is normal." It was her son's drawing, and the ugly figure was herself.
Despite the signature in the spirit of a body positive, the young mother realized that she urgently needed to change. She struggled with excess weight all her life, but often broke down and ate stress with fast food. During her pregnancies, Wendy continued to overeat. While waiting for her fourth child, the Australian woman got so fat that it was almost not noticeable that she was in a position.
The son's drawing became a point of no return and motivated the woman to reconsider her lifestyle. Wendy hired a personal trainer and began to exercise regularly in the gym. Most of all, she likes strength training.
By the end of 2019, the Australian has so polished her physical form that she became a participant in the World Beauty Fitness & Fashion fitness contest, which was held in Sydney. Wendy competed in the category "Transformation". In this category, participants who are on the path of transformation of their body are considered. There, Wendy met sports nutritionist Alicia Gowens and began to collaborate with her.
Wendy and Elysia destroy stereotypes about the harm of carbohydrates and promote the ideas of healthy lifestyle. Now the former fat woman is not afraid to post her bikini photos on Instagram. She says that she does fitness not only to lose weight, but also to become an example for her children.
Now Wendy trains in the gym four times a week and walks up to 12,000 steps daily. She is eager to continue the path to a healthy and slim body and inspires others to make positive changes.
Meanwhile, the British woman dropped 57 kg while walking her dog. Labrador Missy helped the hostess turn from a fat woman into a slender beauty.
