‘The pain would be horrible some days and I wasn’t able to sit or stand for a long time.‘The only way to ease it was to lie down which was pretty embarrassing, I felt like an old lady. Recovering from the operation took a long time and it was really hard. I wasn’t allowed crutches as I had to be able to support myself, some days I would pass out with the pain but I kept going.’ Scoliosis causes the spine to curve and affects about four per cent of the population. If left untreated, it can lead to fatal heart and lung problems and considerably damage mobility. She said: ‘Modelling has always been a dream of mine but I never thought it was possible. Zoe had her first taste of modelling success when she stepped on to the catwalk for Newcastle Fashion Week
‘I knew that standing and posing for shoots would be impossible and I would have been far too scared to walk down the catwalk with my limp. I was in constant pain and couldn’t imagine having the lifestyle I have now.’
The second one is not meant to be crude in any way, just to show you what my back looks like. My spine does not stick out because of my weight, as even when I was at my heaviest (130lbs @ 5"2), it stuck out just the same. I've spoken with a few BodyRockers recently who face similar issues and I want to share mine with you so that you know you are not alone. We all face our challenges, some physical, some mental - but we can get past them. If this means you have to modify, then do so. For me, using traditional weights and cardio caused me so much pain that I just became discouraged - and is how I ended up putting on weight. I switched solely to Pilates & plyometrics and not only did I start to feel better, for the first time I started to enjoy exercising. Am I in the best shape possible? No. But I'm not in nearly as much pain. I am a full supporter and pusher of the BodyRock belief that fitness is a lifestyle, not a journey.For me, I have found a solace in the BodyRock community. The motivation I see every day helps me to remember that I could be facing something so much harder. It is easy to get lost in your own problems and makes it difficult to realize they may not be that bad after all. Keep doing the same for each other. Keep the positivity going. I've read the Nutrition Guide, I've read the Fat Loss For Life Guide; they aren't gimmicks. If you're struggling, they will help. Particularly for me and my struggles, I took to the Fat Loss For Life Guide. It comes with a lot of emotional support and guidance on transforming ALL the aspects in your life - not just your workout regime. The dedication I've seen in the before and afters is astonishing - and I only wish I myself had that sort of internal drive. But until then, there's no shame in needing a helping hand.
