Kelly's Journey

I’m Kelly B, and I have four children. I’m currently studying my Certificate 3 in Group Fitness, and I would really like to work with women and mothers. When you’re a mum, it’s not just about you anymore. It’s about the kids, the house and everything that you have to do. I started going to the gym, and I was working hard. It was just so depressing that it didn’t matter what I did, it was never going to change my stomach. I was so, so unhappy. It had been stretched beyond belief. I didn’t feel like that inside, so I figured, “I have to do this for myself. It’s my time to do something for me.”

The mum I am now is so much happier, so involved, and the mum before that was just so miserable.

I had my first breast augmentation done when I was 19. It was after the birth of my first child, and I wasn’t happy afterward. I was worried that I would have to have lots of consultations with different surgeons, and I really wanted to be listened to and I didn’t feel like I was when I first had surgery. So I waited and waited, and after having the surgery done, our marriage has changed. It’s different because I want to do things. I didn’t want to do anything before. I feel really strong, happy and confident. The mum I am now is so much happier, so involved, and the mum before that was just so miserable. We’re a lot happier because I’m happy.
