Lose weight
without losing your mind!

Hi!  I’m Susan Escott

I spent 30 years battling eating disorders and obesity. 

I hated eating in public.  I avoided trying on clothes in shops. 

I was constantly exhausted and miserable.

I tried so many diet and exercise programs, but each time I returned to living normally I found myself back where I started.

I finally found the RAPID Result Program which succeeded for me when nothing else had.  

I loved my success, so much I studied the system, and now provide support via the eight week Healthy HABITs body breakthrough process 

I struggled to maintain a healthy weight

I lived on a weight loss and gain rollercoaster for over thirty years.

As a teenager I suffered abuse which lead me on a path of self destruction.
I developed an eating disorder, binge eating in private.

Then when I became so disgusted with my body I would including starving myself to lose those extra kilos.

Then when I would return to normal eating the weight increased.

My metabolism was impacted. It started saving every calorie in preparation for the next famine.

In 2016 I contracted a virus that escalated into a heart condition.

I no longer possessed the strength to hold my arms up long enough to wash my hair. 

I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes without passing out.

I was diagnosed as morbidly obese and told to lose at least 40 kgs.  I was left with no choice but to sign up for weight loss surgery.

The surgeon explained this was no cure. The operation would only enable a loss of 20 – 30kgs.

I would have to find a way to continue on my weight loss mission and improve my metabolism or the weight would creep back on.

I was angry.
I wasn’t a big eater.
I had been exercising until I got sick.
I only drank water.
I didn’t smoke.
I felt I had already been through so much and this wasn’t fair.

I managed to lose 50kgs in the first year BUT the weight soon started creeping back on as predicted.

I had to find a way to control my weight

I sought out dieticians and personal trainers, then I researched, looking beyond exercise and nutrition.

I invested in coaches and mentors to ensure that this time I succeeded, and I finally found the secret ingredient.

I have managed to keep off forty kilograms for over four years now and I am fitter and healthier in my fifties than I was in my twenties.

I am maintaining a healthy weight and there is no turning back.

And now I want to share my formula for success.

The secret was the RAPID Results Program a mindset coaching method, proven to elicit breakthroughs, created by the highly respected Authentic Education.

I gained so much from my experience of the eight week program that I decided to provide the same support to others.

An Olympian doesn’t win gold without a coach so why should we expect to achieve our goals or overcome adversity without support?

You don’t have to do this on your own.

The Healthy HABITs body breakthrough program is an eight week on-on-one coaching process which incorporates the Authentic Education RAPID Results Model plus hypnotherapy and additional mindset and physical activities to benefit weight management.  

The program provides results for those who are overweight or suffering body confidence issues.  It can be very beneficial for those who have recovered from trauma or abuse or overcome eating disorders.

Over the eight weeks Susan takes you through the RAPID Results Model which clears blockages then refocuses the brain utilising myelination techniques whereby messages along the nervous system are redirected to greater benefits for a healthy body and mind.

Susan also includes an optional weekly Facebook Support group meeting to further educate on learnings and activities reinforcing the work undertaken in the individual program.

What qualifies me to support you to achieve your goals?

Taking a day off today.

I am one of the many who suffer from chronic asthma, and much of this condition is invisible but no less debilitating.

Yesterdays and todays strong winds and then thunderstorms overnight have left me beyond tired, with a sore head, and dealing with a foggy brain.

To the outside I still look the same; rosy cheeks and a smiling face - no sign of hunched shoulders, wheezing or blue tinge.

But these days are sometimes worse for me as I feel like I should feel better, move faster, think clearer. I perceive that others expect more of me than I can give.

I’ve learnt that taking a day off now can save me twice as much time and angst later - no cleaning up careless mistakes and sometimes even saving me from breaking a treasure that might slip through my fingers.

It’s one bad day and doesn’t define me or prevent me from getting the job done. There is still a beautiful tomorrow if I take the day off today. 🌈

I seem to have stunned a few people when I’ve told them that I have become a health coach. 😱

Because to them, I don’t fit into the definition people think of when they hear the term, Health Coach. Especially since these days the term is being thrown around rather freely.

I’m no Tony Robbins seeking to jump around on stage in front of a large crowd. I’m not super thin or fit. I’m not a personal trainer or nutritionist and I’m definitely no bikini model. 🤣

So what do I have to offer? What made me think I could pull this off?

To me, it made perfect sense. It seemed like the natural progression. I love people. I love to listen to them, and talk with them. I love trying to help solve problems.

I also know what it feels like to be stuck in a body that you hate.
I know what it feels like to go past a shop window and admire an outfit but walk on as the last thing you feel like doing is looking at yourself in the mirror.
I know what it feels like to not want to eat in public in case someone is making judgement.

I was on a roller coaster or weight gains and losses over a thirty year period and reached the point where I was classified as morbidly obese.

I could have easily stayed in the same rut and I’d likely be dead by now.

I refused to go down without a fight though. Yet I felt helpless. I had tried almost every weight loss program, all the fad diets, and attempted all sorts of exercise programs. None of it was working so I did my own study and sought further guidance and support.

And now I want to share it with others to spare them some of my pain and wrong turns. As someone who has been there, done that, and can be their accountability partner. I figure I might just be what someone needs to support them on their journey, and isn’t that what being a coach is all about? 💕

I’ve done it! I’ve created a live event for next Thursday in a Facebook group. 😬 I plan to speak LIVE for twenty minutes which I thought would be difficult but I ran through my content this morning and only reached the end of my intro by the 15 minute mark. Good thing I have a week to go to refocus 🤣 #facebooklive #followingtheprocess #steppingup #buildingconfidence #icandothis #itseasywhenyoulovewhatyoudo ...

It’s a dark and gloomy day today with a declaration of a 100% chance of rain.

I was going to take the dogs for a walk but the rain looked to be about to fall - so instead I sat and ate my breakfast in silence. Preparing for a big week ahead.

I made a huge commitment to my coach and in turn myself. To go live on her program July 1. It’s a dauntingly monumental move. She’s an amazingly inspirational woman, and this is a huge opportunity for me.

I have turned down other presenting opportunities as I am petrified of doing a live feed. I cannot stand to have eyes on me. So this is truly very scary and hopefully the start of something new.

Of course I’ve known about this for almost a month and yet barely put anything together as the urgency wasn’t there. So I am committing myself, heart and soul, to the process and kicking that urgency level up a notch - amongst my other scheduled commitments of course…

Took the dogs for a quick run before a day of training yesterday and we were chased by a Jack Russell. I got jostled around a bit by the dogs and it looks like I’ve pulled a tendon in my hip. Woke up in [email protected] in the middle of the night. Went to physio and he said “Don’t run” I answered “until?” His response “how does forever sound?” 🤣😂🤣 left him and went for a walk as I felt fine as I’d had pain relief. Within two hours though it was really really hurting. 😵‍💫. One day I’ll learn. ...

Have a friend of over 35 years staying this weekend. We were reminiscing last night and I tried to find a photo I had seen on social media and came across this one in my feed. Almost twelve months to the day I have posted a similar photo on my social media. 😱. Think I might have to change up my game. 😬. The cat was sitting beside me like this again this morning. One foot on my leg. The pants are more pilled in the recent shot but they are now three years old. #gottagetoutmore #needtochangeitup #comfortablyhappy #lifeisgood #notchangingweight ...

Yesterday was cold and miserable. 🥶

Instead of taking the dogs for a run I tried to run on the treadmill. 200m in I was exhausted.

I realised the weather was setting off my asthma so I started pumping in the Ventolin to see if I could continue. 😮‍💨

I managed to get 2.5kms done at a good walking and jogging pace but the rest of the day felt the effects.

I find aerobic workouts are a double edged sword. They feel insurmountable when I’m struggling to breathe yet they really help clear the gunk off my chest. 🫁

The medication then causes sleeplessness so at 1am I was still wide awake. 👀 So no workout this morning.

I know I’m not going to die and the world isn’t going to fall down around me if I miss a session but the guilt lingers. Ah mindset you fickle thing.

The sun came out in time for my lunchtime walk so it was cold and brisk but most enjoyable in my bright fleecy leggings. 🏃🏼

Completed my first ‘real’ chest/back workout since injuring my shoulder. 🏋️

Reduced the weights back to one kg and worked instead on repetitions and form. 💪🏼

After so much time with limited movement and weight bearing it was a good feeling to be doing the weights and no pain! 🙌🏼

My usual routine is 🏃🏼running Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then 🏋️gym Tuesday, and Thursday (and sometimes Saturday). Tuesday’s is chest/back and Thursday is leg day. 😩

If I’m not doing much else on a Saturday I will revisit the chest/back workout. If I’m doing a ‘big’ house clean I find I can get up my aerobic rate and do weights at the same time.

Knowing I need more movement to stay fit I now make a workout out of all minor housekeeping tasks - squats whilst making the bed 🛌 , brushing the teeth 🦷 , hanging washing👗 and stacking the dishwasher🧫 are examples. 🏋️. #squats #workingoutathome #weightstraining #repetitionworks

I promised I’d be faster and I was!

I had envisioned that would mean running further and walking less but instead I ran faster and then walked further.🏃🏼

I felt more comfortable in my stride today, smoother, not so stiff, and for the first time my right thigh didn’t complain. 🙌🏼

My usual walk/ run with the dogs is 3.86kms and so this new short circuit running is aimed at assisting me to pick up my speed. And it’s working. 🐕

My goal is to run the whole distance then revert back to the old circuit and keep building.

One day hopefully I will once again be running 5kms like I did as a teenager. 💪🏼

Decided to do a shorter and more intense run to see how fast I could go and for how long. 
 
Used Nike run club instead of usual metering. It doesn’t give splits but tells you as you’re running.  Set it to 2.2km which means I was able to run almost to Racecourse Rd and then turn back. 
 
I was averaging 7.43’ before I stopped to say hi to someone- then was doing 7.58’ on the return leg until I got home and walked slowly on the last bit on the phone to son as he was trying to find me.

Sitting in the dark - having sat through a webinar that commenced at 5am.

It’s amazing how you will do something if it really means something to you.

I stumbled across a non-diet approach to weight loss online and then received some great information and learnings. Then the invite came for a free webinar at 5am and I thought there’s no way I’m getting out of bed on a cold winters morning for that!

But somehow I went ahead and signed up anyway...

Then I thought about it last night but refrained from setting an alarm.

Sure enough at 4.45am I was wide awake!

I closed my eyes to go back to sleep and did... until 4.58.

So I got up, threw on my dressing gown and ugg boots and cuddled on the couch to watch some of the most insightful learnings I’ve had about dieting - or non-dieting.

If it’s meant to be it will happen... #nondietapproach #coachinghealth #healthyeating #intuitiveeating

So often we lose track of the ‘Why’. It’s good to sit back and remember what we seek to achieve and why. It can often make the journey more palatable or even enjoyable. When I find it hard to hit the gym in the morning I visualise how I felt when I was sick and remind myself I can’t go back. #livingmybestlife #noturningback #visualisetheendresult ...
