We continue the incredible transformation story of Jaymini. Throughout the year, Jaymini will give us an insight into her journey with U Fit Studio, explain how she went from a size 16/18 to a size 6 and lost over 4 stone.
I used to love swimming as a child, I would go to a swimming club twice a week after school until the age of 11 or 12. I won several competitions and certificates, I was so proud of myself!
This stopped however when I started high school, and I slowly but surely began to steer away from all forms of exercise. I always wanted to swim but didn’t feel confident enough to wear a swimming costume (definitely not a bikini!) in a public pool environment.
Whilst in Thailand, we had our own private villa with an infinity pool – it was absolute bliss. For the first time in over 10 years I swam, and it felt incredible. My body ached after the first day I had been in the pool, at first I didn’t realise why!
Feeling comfortable enough to wear a swimming costume on holiday was also a huge step for me, I hated the idea of any skin being on show, even the thought of wearing a sleeveless top/ vest wasn’t appealing for me.
Whilst in Phuket I have also had time to reflect on the past 2 months and how happy I felt to finally be working on improving myself, I felt excited for the future and returning home. I was missing the gym, something I never thought I would say!
