Danah’s story

Danah Walsh got in touch recently to share her inspiring Operation Transformation journey with us. The positive response was incredible. As a result Danah has shared her tips on how she got the motivation to transform her life.

Here are some tips that helped Danah get to where she is today:

"For people that are afraid to start going out walking, jogging or to the gym because of what other’s might think of you, you should not feel like that, and do not deserve to feel like that! I know what it’s like as I pretended I was happy in my body for so long! However at some stage in life it will all become too much no matter what your age or weight.

  • Everybody feels uncomfortable about something! If you are afraid to start losing weight or taking on any journey because people doubt you, drive on from that and prove them wrong!! Prove to those who doubt you that there is only going to be one winner and that winner will be you!
  • Willpower is a massive thing in losing weight and going on a journey. You can't aim to lose weight while eating take-aways and wondering why you are up a pound! Why throw away a hard week’s work for some cheap greasy food? Why not have an apple or salad? Losing weight is a great thing and anyone who can do it. Just have self-belief and will power. Be able to say no to a pizza, taco chips etc.
  • If you have a bad week don't be disappointed if you are up a pound or two, it is okay. It's not the end; just push yourself more next week! Have belief in yourself, do not doubt yourself, you can do anything you put your mind to!
  • Treat yourself once a week. Remember a treat doesn’t always have to be about food! Whether it’s going to watch a good film or relaxing with friends, you deserve it after all the hard work.

For anyone afraid to start the journey… start it! You deserve to be happy in the body you’re in and you deserve all the credit you get no matter what your age, size or appearance is.

It's one of the best things I’ve ever started in my life. I would never go back to the old me and my old ways. The feeling of everyone noticing your improved appearance and giving you compliments is an unbelievable feeling. It will drive you on more! So I hope this story inspires people to start and be the person they want to be! :-) "

Hi, I’m Danah Walsh. I’m 17 years old and live in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. I have had an interest in every type of sport and played a variety of sports since I was a child but always suffered with my weight. In February I decided to change from my bad habits and to lose weight. Since then I have been keeping very active, eating healthily and lost 5st 9lbs. My motto is - you can make anything you want happen, just have self-belief!
