Hi, I'm Rach and I am going to tell you the story of why I'm the #mostinspiringSalopian. In 2016 I had a heck of a year, my life flipped upside down and changed dramatically.

I decided to take control of the situation and I started to slim down and lost a total of 3 stone - something that I am very proud of and was finally in the comfortable place I always wanted to be. However, as 2016 was the year of slim.. I wanted 2017 to be the year to trim. I started on New Years Day 2017 with a challenge to beat the sunrise up the Wrekin (which I managed to do with 13 minutes still left on the clock) and then I set myself challenges every week.

Then along comes the #myshrewsburymoves challenge. This challenge has really made me up my game! I have gone from a girl who used to eat ice cream on the sofa to a bouncy creature that hill walks, skips, spins and has a zest for everything. I still get to eat the occasional bowl of cookies and cream but now I don't have guilt about it! It amazing to me how many people have supported me on my challenge and enjoy hill walking with me, and introducing me to spin class, and generally giving me the determination to not stop.

I used to think I had no time to do things, but the more I put the myzone belt on, the more zip and zing I have! If I can do it... everyone can do it, and I feel that I can put a spring in anyone's step who needs to understand that the only thing holding them back is the glue that sticks you to the sofa!
