When I first joined RNT, I was seeking help; help to be better, fitter, stronger and mainly battle my self-confidence and self-worth. Little did I know that this journey would help me overcome depression, an illness which I suffered from many years.
We are often told the only cure to depression is medicine, but after joining RNT this was not the case. Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also hard to bear, the frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden.
It is easier to say my head aches than to say my heart is broken. My depression has been cured, my anxiety is less, I am free from tablets and I am now a woman who feels beautiful, strong, fitter and most of all knows her self-worth.
We often hear this used: the physical as a vehicle, a powerful phrase within RNT, but this phrase is powerful as I have overcome something which I never thought I could. I am cured by nutrition and fitness. I could not have done this without the help and support from the RNT team. Thank you RNT for believing in me and never letting me give up.
