I remember seeing my first postural pictures, to say I was shocked would be an understatement. Ever watched ‘The Simpsons’? I remember going straight home and telling Andy that I looked like Mr Burns. No joke, I was appalled. My head and neck were so far forward and I had never even noticed. To me it was a huge wake-up call telling me how little attention I had really been focusing on my body.
After my first adjustment the change was obvious to see head back and my body more naturally aligned. I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my chest and I could breathe easily and freely for the first time since I don’t know when.
So now I’m 4 years on (how can that have happened?!!) and I’m noticing more subtle, but nonetheless impressive physical changes. With my shoulders back my chest has naturally popped out, I consider this a bit of a result for someone who’s always been somewhat flat-chested. Alongside this, my stomach appears trimmer, flatter and my backside perkier! Summer body on the way.
Some people may say that other factors are at play here, but I’ve always been very focussed on my diet, having generally followed a low-carb plan for years. OK, I am exercising more, but I also credit ABC with that as my lung capacity is certainly greater and I feel like I have more energy.
Everyone expects that as you get older it gets harder to maintain your body and physical appearance, but with the help of ABC I like to think I’m bucking the trend on this. My body’s looking pretty good, if I do say so myself. Alongside all of the other issues ABC has helped me with, the body confidence one is huge.
So bring on the summer, bring on those shorts, strappy tops & bikinis. This ABC summer body is ready for you!
