Surprised at how easy it has been
“Everyone said that the fat round my middle was part of ageing. I was unsure as I met many people of my age who had beautiful figures. I was disgusted with how I looked and wanted my waist back.

Exactly the help and support I needed!
I can’t thank Christy enough for the help and support she has gave me. My eating habits were not great and I have learned to look at food with a healthier understanding.

Almost instantly I felt better and had so much more energy

I now understand the principles behind nutrition for weight loss
Christy is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition and educated me from the beginning about how to fuel my body and the things to avoid.

The… Read more “I now understand the principles behind nutrition for weight loss”
Christy was a delight to work with
“I hadn’t realised just how carb filled my diet was. I initially believed I was a healthy eater. It goes to show you that education is key. Taking responsibility for your own eating is also key.

It is the best decision I have made in years
“I have followed every diet under the sun and my weight has gone up and down for years. No matter which diet I was on I always wanted to reach my goal weight so that I could stop starving myself!

Support sessions enable you to refocus
“I had always regarded myself as a healthy eater. Like most I don’t eat many processed foods and had the occasional treat, or so I thought!

The plan was difficult to begin with as I was… Read more “Support sessions enable you to refocus”

I love this way of eating
“Just over 12 weeks ago I found an advert and article about Christy – Lose it and Love it, in a local publication. I read it with interest because I felt I really needed help.

Highly recommend Lose it and Love it to anyone
“I would highly recommend Lose it and Love it to anyone. I signed up for the 12 week programme. It is not a diet as far as I am concerned.

I can now eat without the guilt

I feel like me again
As a fitness instructor, I have always strived to have a healthy balance to exercise and food. But last year, I was admitted to hospital with abdominal pains and after exploratory surgery, I woke with the news that they had removed half my bowel and that they were sure I had bowel cancer. Fortunately for… Read more “I feel like me again”
Best thing I’ve done
Lockdown had me even more addicted to sugar than I normally would be relying on full-fat Irn Bru and bread to get me through the long days. The comedown from cutting out the sugar was tough but worth it.
Christy quite simply showed me a knew way to think about food and how to… Read more “Best thing I’ve done”
In the past I always struggled to remain at my racing weight
As a competitive cyclist of 12 years, I wanted to make 2017 my most successful racing season to date.

You won’t regret logging on and picking up that phone
“I contacted Christy in January at my wit’s end and she was kind and supportive taking me through lots of little steps and explaining “diet” things over the years that haven’t helped me. I made small changes and the difference was incredible. Getting sugar out of my system was hard and it felt dreadful but… Read more “You won’t regret logging on and picking up that phone”

30-Day Jump Start Challenge
Hair, skin everything is glowing
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone for your motivation. I lost 8lb in 30 days and restarted my exercise regime. Felt amazing at a social event on Saturday night. Hair, skin everything was glowing. Thank you, Christy, I will deffo be signing up for the next challenge.
Jump start was good for me to start to make changes in the way I think
“Jump start was good for me to start to make changes in the way I think, plan and choose what I eat. Christy was always there to answer any questions and help you to stay on track. If things didn’t work for you one day it’s not the end of the world accept it and plan ahead for the next day. Being part of the group was nice too sharing tips, recipes and giving each other words of encouragement. Lovely bunch of people thank you Christy.”
The support from the other members keeps you motivated
“Christy’s 30 Day Fit and Healthy Group Challenge is a great way to kick-start your plan! There are 4 weekly challenges which keep you focused. The support from the other members keeps you motivated and on track and gives lots of recipe ideas!”
Great bunch of people
“Great bunch of people. Christy is so knowledgeable and supportive.”
I can sustain this and continue to lose some more weight
Thanks Christy, it’s been fun and easier to get organised than I thought. I weighed myself today and I’ve lost 7.5lb, which is fab and hopefully, I can sustain this and continue to lose some more weight.
I feel I’m in a good place
Thanks Christy – got back my love of cooking! Learning to plan my meals too! A huge pot of chicken soup all made for going back to work tomorrow! I feel I’m in a good place! Thanks so much
I like a challenge to keep me motivated
“I have really enjoyed the challenge, I like a challenge to keep me motivated. I’m sure I’ll be looking back through all your emails to remind me of recipes and ideas. Thanks again”
I’ve lost a stone now and I’m totally off the sugar
I would just like to say because of your 30-day jump start challenge and been following you on social media – I’ve lost a stone now and I’m totally off the sugar and have been since I started your challenge. No cravings .. I am feeling good .. You are a great inspiration. Thank you xx
Christy gives you clear guidance that you can put into practice
“Christy gives you clear guidance that you can put into practice. She gives realistic advice and is there if you have questions. She’s on your side!! (But won’t take any nonsense). If you need someone to give you some daily encouragement sign up.”
This has been a great kick-start for me
“This has been a great kick-start for me and I’ve learnt so much. Takes time to change the ( bad) habits of a lifetime but this has definitely been a great start. Really enjoyed your challenge Christy and your guidance. Would love to do another later in the year to keep on track!” 30 Day Group Jump Start Challenge
No intention of going back to my old ways
Too much sugar was my downfall! I haven’t had any in 32 days!! The jump start challenge really helps because you’re on a journey with others in the group and it encourages you to keep going. Having finished the challenge I have no intention of going back to my old ways, it changes your mindset towards food. Sometimes I think I’ll give myself a treat cause I’ve done so well but when it comes to it, I don’t actually want to eat something that isn’t doing me any good nutritionally! Thanks to Christy and her amazing knowledge I’m finally on the right track!!! The weight loss will happen if you just eat well! Thanks Christy! X
I have loved doing this challenge
I have loved doing this challenge over the last 30 days and focusing on what I am eating. I kind of knew my big downfall was skipping meals and too much sugar. But it has been sooo hard for me to stay on track longer than a few days at a time, particularly when I went back to work in the middle of the challenge. But I am determined, my focus for the next few months is to plan and make sure I eat 3 nutrient-packed meals a day. I think with that focus, cutting out sugar will come easier. I have been eating badly for a long time, so will probably take me a while to get back on track and change my lifestyle. Thanks for your guidance over the last few weeks and thank you to everyone for sharing all your meals and tips, its been very inspiring! X
Jump start-says it all really
“Jump start-says it all really. If you follow Christy’s guidance your body will get the jump start it needs into a healthier, happier you. Don’t be afraid to ask Christy or the other group buddies anything. You will have a few giggles along the way.”
I have seen a great start to my weight loss
Thank you so much, everyone, for all your posts, ideas and support. I’ve been quiet with posting the last week but I’m still sticking with everything I have learnt over the last 4 weeks. I have seen a great start to my weight loss goal but most of all I am learning how to eat healthier. And that’s thanks to you all and especially Christy!
I feel much more in control
I loved this challenge! Christy’s straightforward advice & encouragement made it easier to break my bad habits. I also enjoyed the group dynamics & the daily chat. I feel much more in control of my health & nutrition instead of being completely out of control and am looking forward to continuing along this road. Thank you Christy! Xx
An absolutely fantastic challenge
“An absolutely fantastic challenge, if you want to change your eating habits and become much healthier Christy is the one that will help you along the way, she will encourage you and guide you. And will answer any questions you have.”
30-Day Body Blitz Challange
I have lost 7 lbs and 12 inches. I am really happy with that. Will be carrying on with it all. Thanks to Christy & Colin for all your expert advice on nutrition and fitness. I have really enjoyed the 30-day body blitz. I have lost 7lbs and 12 inch overall which I am really happy with. I had got myself into a rut. And with the support from the group, I have got back to being more positive and have changed my mindset. I plan on carrying on with the workouts and eating healthier.x
Thank you so much to you and Colin for all your help during the body blitz. All your advice really made me think about my eating habits. What I eat, when I eat, how much I eat. Colin’s homework outs are absolutely brilliant. Simple to follow and very effective. In terms of results, I’ve lost 10lbs (I didn’t take measurements but clothes feel great on again) doing the 4-week body blitz. I intend to keep going and continue with the home workouts which are fab when I have a 2-year-old and 5 year old. I’m determined the changes I’ve made over the last 4 weeks are going to be long term. I had slipped into too many bad habits. One of the worst was snacking in the kitchen on rubbish (ironically while cooking and preparing my boys the healthiest of foods/ meals), and eating late at night when my hubby got home. I’ve started to eat the same as the boys and with them at tea time. Thanks so much to both of you again. I will definitely recommend to others.
Over the 4 weeks, I’ve only lost 4lb in weight but I’ve lost a total of 12 inches including 3 1/2 inches from my waist! Really enjoyed the workouts and found they fitted in well to my busy life. Definitely feeling stronger and fitter and that my diet is more balanced now and that this eating plan is sustainable long-term rather than being a crash diet. Thanks to Christy Hyslop and Colin Cox. Pleased to say this week I’m still meal planning and prepping and continuing with Colin’s home workouts.
‘The combination of nutrition advice and structured workouts helped me find new ways to eat well while becoming fitter, stronger and healthier with lots of ideas and strategies to carry on after the 30 days.
Overall 5.5lbs lost and 7”. Thank you to Colin, Christy and everyone in the group for sharing your knowledge, recipes, ideas, pics and answering questions.
It’s been a fantastic programme and shows what can be achieved in a short space of time.”
Final weigh in 5lbs off and 3.5”. Especially delighted to lose 1.5” off my waist. My target was 6lbs which I would have achieved if I hadn’t had a couple of nights out at the weekend. Will get it off this week. Now to maintain it and get more exercise in. Thanks to Colin & Christy & to all the group, enjoyed reading your posts.
Body Blitz helps put you in the driving seat on the road to a healthier body and lifestyle – instead of just kicking at the (spare?) tyres. Two expert instructors in Colin Cox and Christy Hyslop.
Final weight and measurements today 7lbs off and 17.5 inches! Delighted thanks Colin and Christy I will definitely keep the principals going
The body blitz challenge has been an amazing kick start into a lifelong lifestyle change. Christy and Colin are both professionals who you can tell love their jobs. Their knowledge combining the correct foods and correct exercise has been fascinating and I have an overall loss of 9lbs and 7.5 inches. Thank you both so much!
I’ve lost 5 lbs over the month and 3 inches. Delighted and despite having cake and a couple of wines this weekend, I’m determined to keep it up to get to my target. Slowly and surely, without crazy dieting.
Making healthier choices for meals and snacks and drinking lots of water has helped my digestion issues too. Colin’s workouts were good and nicely timed wake up to the day. Thank you to everyone for their posts and recipe ideas and for inspiring me to keep going even when I didn’t feel like it.
I feel much stronger and I think I’ve been sleeping better. I’ve lost enough weight to feel a difference which is motivating me to keep going:-) I’ve enjoyed thinking about healthier snack options. Still enjoying too much wine but balancing intake with exercise really helps. I’m hoping to put together some exercise routines made up from the ones we have been doing and ensure I do them 3/4 times a week. Thanks for getting me to this stage – it’s been really helpful.
Since the start, I have lost 7lbs and 6 inch from the waist. Thanks so much, Colin and Christy for all your support. I will keep it going
The biggest change for me has been the move away from convenience foods and snacks to healthy ‘real’ foods and snacks and cutting down on fizzy drinks to drink more water. I have so much more energy and have enjoyed learning to exercise. I’m definitely going to continue, 5 weeks to my big birthday and I’d like to continue averaging a 1lb loss a week, slow but sure for the long term lifestyle change.
