The woman was engaged in Thai Boxing to lose weight, and became a professional athletePictolic
Three years ago this lady weighed more than 80 pounds, I felt very uncomfortable and ashamed of his appearance. In addition, the gynecologist gave her a disappointing diagnosis, adding that with this disease is very difficult to lose weight. Yes, indeed: conventional methods like low-carb diet didn't work... But Thai Boxing was a real panacea.
Meet Scarlett Harvey, an English woman, living in Dubai (31). In 2018, weighed 83 kg and had since lost almost 30 kg what's lost weight — she has completely transformed my body and now performs at competitions in bodybuilding! And all this is the result of hard work and regular exercise.
Three years ago the situation was completely different — weight, loose body, medical diagnosis of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) associated with hormonal imbalance. Actually, the diagnosis and gave determined to change the way of life — not to crawl in thirty years to the cemetery, wrapped in a sheet.
Scarlett started with a revision of their diet and exercise regimen. Tried a few extreme diets, including refusal of carbohydrates (don't do that!), — all expected it eventually led to more weight gain and poor health.
She then approached the issue more carefully, and began to count calories and to choose healthier foods. And most importantly — went to the gym and opened a Thai Boxing and other martial arts. This was key, we can say, the turning point.
Scarlett says that it was always a dense Constitution, for which she was teased at school. Well and sweet abused, not without it. Then, when she became a teacher and started teaching, eating habits have changed a little — go for lunch was often a once-and she took it with me to work ready meals.
Unfortunately, when Scarlett in 2015 moved to Dubai (also for teaching post), she returned to unhealthy diet — at the new location for this was all the conditions... All this led to the urgent need to engage them and to lose weight. Well, next was gym — where she went on daily 30-minute workout at Thai Boxing.
"I liked the classes, says Scarlett. — First, only half an hour, second, the hall was located 200 metres from my front door. Training also helped me to throw out negative emotions, which I always kept that contributed to my mental health.
Coach asked me, "You've lost weight before, why give up? And when you surrender this time?" And I decided — Oh, no, this time I'll never give up. And she lost 6 lbs in 6 weeks".
In 2018, after learning about their diagnosis, Scarlett even more determined beginning to build a new way of life — from food to fitness. But beginning with the removal of the contraceptive implant (hormonal contraceptive), which could also contribute to fluctuations in her weight.
By January 2019 Scarlett lost 15 kg and enthusiastic about their new sport, I decided to apply for bodybuilding competitions Dubai Muscle Show. And won. In November 2020, she also participated in the Dubai Muscle Beach competition, and took second place.
Achieve fitness is not the only positive result of a new lifestyle. Two recent surveys on PCOS showed that the symptoms of the illness disappeared (along with cysts). That is, I must say, just a great result! The case when the sport is indeed human has changed and improved.
