My self-confidence is the highest it has ever been in my life. For the first time i am actually looking forward to summer, not scared to be wearing bathers! I feel far stronger mentally as well.

Achieve new goals
The challenge provided an end-point to focus my goals on, and strategise my eating and work-out plans towards. This enabled me to work harder to achieve goals, given i had a time-frame and i was competing against others. Having the 4 week and 8 week check-in points were a fantastic reality-check to assess how i was progressing. Comparing these check-in photo's to my registration photo's further motivated me to keep working hard. Just as i was starting to feel exhausted or low, the check-in points would be upon me and comparing my photo's to my registration photo gave me a big motivational boost to continue and give 100% every single day. The support from the Maxines team both on the website and on social media, along with the support from fellow competitors on social media, was enormous and made a huge difference to my motivation and ability to keep giving my all. Daily support and motivation from people striving to achieve similar goals in life made daily choices with eating and exercise far easier.
The hardest part of this challenge was eating out, or attending functions which involved food, with people who had no understanding or appreciation of my goals and the life changes i have made. Their criticism regarding my food choices was frustrating and being pressured to eat things i have chosen not to left me feeling quite deflated and again frustrated. Surrounding myself with encouraging and motivating people played a large role in my success.
My self-confidence is the highest it has ever been in my life. For the first time i am actually looking forward to summer, not scared to be wearing bathers! I feel far stronger mentally as well. I feel that i finally have self control over my eating, something i have never had before.
The challenge is worth every second. You won't regret doing the challenge on bit! The impact this challenge has had on my life has been 100% positive and these changes i have made in life will continue. The support the Maxine's team provide throughout the challenge leaves you feeling strong and confident in your ability to maintain the diet and exercise throughout the challenge, and maintain the changes after the competition is finished.
I love the Maxine's products! I hadn't used them before and have completely fallen in love with them. The chocolate night time protein is my favourite. I will continue using them as part of a balanced diet.
