My name is Irene and I am passionate about facilitating positive change towards optimal living.
Slimmers Sanctuary was born out of my lifelong journey to total wellness.
I’m just like anyone who has ever struggled with their weight. For a very long time I was unhappy with my size as I was clearly overweight. I fell victim of almost every weight loss scam that was ever invented.
Happily, as I write now, I write having conquered that battle that seemed eternal.
My victory was not gained at a dress size or a number on the scale but in my journey towards a better me.
Do I have the perfect body? No! – not even close. But I have found that perfection comes from appreciating who you are and where you are as you strive towards a better you – that’s the beauty of where I am today.
This journey isn’t about perfection. It’s about progress – learning how to forgive yourself and get back
up when you fall; being willing to make the small changes in your life that accumulate over time to a big transformation.
I am encouraged each day to keep moving as I relish every moment of life.
I want to be a change agent – especially to women – because I strongly believe that the life we want for ourselves is truly possible. I am inspired by and celebrate the success of others.
It is my innate desire, through Slimmers Sanctuary, to inspire, motivate, support and encourage, as we nurture a lifestyle committed to being fit, healthy and happy.
I just thought to reintroduce myself and let you know why I do what I do😊
Thanks for being here and sharing this journey with me
