And the results show.
“I was told I look 10 years younger [the other day]! Considering I am fast approaching 50, this was the best compliment I could have received,” says Baker, who recently went skydiving in Queenstown, New Zealand, with her whole family.
“I was incredibly proud of myself and my family was thrilled I could do it with them. It is only through the changes I have made, supported and encouraged by Jeff, that I had the courage and confidence to do it.”
Where she once felt constantly tired, Baker now rises at 5.30am for a morning walk before work and makes sure she’s active every day. However, following a diet isn’t something Baker finds helpful.
“My main focus with my diet has been to be mindful about what I eat so I track my food each day ... I don’t follow any particular diet as I want this to be a permanent lifestyle change that I can maintain. Flexibility is the key.”
Looking back, Baker can hardly believe how far she’s come.
“I recently visited a friend whose wedding I attended three years ago, and she showed me the beautiful book of photos from the day. When I turned the page to the photo I was in, I gasped in shock at the person I saw. I can’t imagine going back to that and I’m excited about entering a new decade with endless possibilities. I feel like I can achieve anything I set my mind to.”
