Aquariums To Go's very own Lou Kent has been on a weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey for nearly two years. Lou has lost
over 52% of her body weight and has participated 25 events including fun runs, ocean swims and triathlons. Being fit and healthy
means that Lou can now do all the things she used to dream about, including skydiving, abseiling and climbing both the Story Bridge
in Brisbane and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The Half Ironman Triathlon was a huge challenge, starting out with a 1.9km
ocean swim, 90km bike ride and 21.1 km run. Yes, that is a half marathon after all that swimming and cycling! Lou trained hard
with support from a proffesional triathlon coach.
Her diet has gone from watching what she eats for weight loss to making
sure she eats enough of the right foods for her training and exercise.
