My Experience at the Fat Attack Boot Camp in East Grinstead

My Experience at the Fat Attack Boot Camp in East Grinstead


The boot camp had been really positive up to this point and I really enjoyed it even with the asthma attacks, the bleeding foot and severe sun burn.

When I arrived back at the kitchen from my consultation. everyone was being weighed. Vanessa said to me, ‘you won’t want to be weighed’, so I said, ‘of course I do!’ All that work I’d done wasn’t going to go to waste! So she weighs me grudgingly and gives me this smile and quietly says ‘You eat a lot at home don’t you.’ I mean charming, I was a bit non-plussed by THAT statement. I just said not really and shrugged. I actually eat 1200 calories a day, which was less than what she was giving us, I only thought about that retort later. She nodded and said I had lost 3 pounds. I mean 3 pounds that’s not to be sneezed at!

I also lost just under 1% of my body fat. But she didn’t tell me that then. She just refused to do the tape measure so I did it when I got home; I lost 2 inches on my waist! So it took me three gos to get her to give me the measurements that she was just handing out to everyone else. At least when I forced it out of her I could do the rest of the measurements at home. And I was thrilled to find out about the body fat as I don’t have a way of doing that at home. How to make someone feel bad for being ill!

I should mention for fairness that Vanessa came up to see if I was alright twice during the weekend over two days because they were concerned about me. I suppose this was why I found it so strange the way I was treated in the last hour. Still I lost weight, fat percentage and inches so it WAS worth it.

Lunch was Covent Garden tomato soup with basil and a millet roll, which again was delicious. And that folks was the end of the trip.


Pounds lost: 3

Body fat lost: 0.7

Waist inches lost: 2
