My experience with Tanisha and BusySlim has been fantastic. In just a few words Tanisha is warm, supportive, caring, and relatable. But most of all she is knowledgeable – I thought I already knew the basic principles of nutrition (except for how to stick to them), however with every class Tanisha surprises me, she not only teaches me something new about health but teaches me something about myself as well.
Despite doing the program with a group, I know she has been able to target each of us individually to give us the best chance of personal success, rather than using the ‘one size fits all’ approach. She’s given me the tools to lose over 8kg in 9 weeks, and I am starting to get really excited about what my future holds. While there have been ups and downs - those times where life has been really hard and I’ve felt like going back to the comfort of old unhealthy habits - the supportive group atmosphere, as well as Tanisha’s honesty, understanding and encouragement is teaching me to keep on going when I stumble rather than fall over completely and give up. She has told me not only what I need to hear, but has backed that up by taking the time to help me find ways to make what she has said work for me.
Tanisha seems to have an instinct for when to be gentle, and when to get fired up and set challenges. What I am enjoying most, at this stage, is the liberating feeling of finding my rhythm, of rediscovering the person I am underneath the layers I have hidden behind, and absolutely the energy of the class – its so different to other programs I have done in the past (and I’ve done quite a few). With BusySlim, I am comfortable enough to share the journey with others, but it is still intimate enough to feel quite personal.
With the regular contact between classes, with emails and SMS, I haven’t once felt like I am doing this all on my own – I have my own personal (and energetic!) support person on my side. It has been so touching to see how genuinely happy and excited Tanisha is when I reach a personal goal, its actually meant a lot to me. I know I still have a fair way to go, however I know that with the ongoing support and continuous learning that BusySlim gives me, I finally have confidence in myself to go out and take charge of my future.
