I have 3 children, the youngest being 14, not sure you can blame the mummy tummy for 14 years but I have been trying.  I’ve been yo yo dieting for longer than I care to remember, done low carb, got great results, couldn’t keep it up, tried paleo, wasn’t consistent, didn’t keep it up, tried clubs that you go to get weighed at each week, didn’t keep it up.  I had a gym membership I didn’t use.  So yeah I had all the tools I needed but still couldn’t do it.  I didn’t value my own wellbeing enough to commit. I have been following Diren for a couple of years now and have always loved his energy and directness.  I suppose I’ve watched from afar and always thought I’d like to train with him.  Life gets in the way, a lot, and it never really happened.  Then at the start of April Diren started to post about Project X.  I was interested, 8 weeks, but it was the middle of the month.  I almost didn’t sign up, I almost said I’ll wait and see.  Then I thought, NO, invest in yourself now, stop putting it off.  A week of waiting to see what the programme would bring.  What did we get?? Well I got a personalised 4 day programme, it was designed around my aims and what equipment I had.  I got access to Diren’s new website, which has grown so much since then.  I have to upload my stats and calculate my calories for the day.  Nothing knew there.  Then, what I can only describe as, the best thing in the fitness industry right now was added in as a requirement, accountability. To stay on Project X you have to fill in a form every day, yes every day!! If you didn’t you are out.  You have to log your steps, workouts, calories, but more importantly it asks how you are and how you can improve.   The sheer panic on everyone when our forms weren’t uploading or there were issues at the beginning was so stressful.  I was stressing out because I got called out, I had checked in, I can prove it, and then realised I was entering the wrong e-mail address on mine. I’m not gonna lie (yes I said that in Diren’s voice) the first few days, week or so were a bit scary.  No one wanted booted off the programme.  Then I got into the habit of getting my NEATUP, logging my calories, doing my workouts and generally being consistent. We had live check-ins and Q&As with Diren twice a week.  And Diren posted little videos on the private Facebook group.  We set up a WhatsApp group. The people in our group are amazing, we have people from all over the world, in various time zones.  The family I now have are one of the reasons I have stuck at this.  I had sciatica from the start but about 5 weeks in it got really bad, walking used to ease it, now it doesn’t.  I e-mailed Diren and got a response almost straight away – Don’t worry about it, just be consistent with your steps and calories and CHECK IN!!  So I did.  Before Project X I would’ve given up, sat wallowing in self-pity and ate myself into oblivion.  This time I had Diren making sure I stayed on track and a group of, until 27th April, complete strangers having my back. Project X has been the best thing for me in a long time.  I’ve lost 7.3kg so far and 7 inches overall.  But more importantly I’m being consistent and holding myself to account.  Diren has struck gold with this one and I’d recommend anyone who needs help to jump on the next Project X, if you do what you’re asked to do you will see fantastic results.  I am so happy to be moving on to Project Lifestyle now.  DIren has given me the tools I need to keep going and I am so grateful to him for that.  He’s an absolute legend #NEATUP247 #PROJECTXOGs
