Evangeline Jamili is not new to exercise. But like so many busy professionals finding time for gym visits became difficult. This was especially concerning when her health depends on remaining consistent to combat the effects of Thyroid surgery.
Our Client: Evangeline Jamili, Butuan City Philippines
“I had an amazing body when I was younger. In fact, I was the Regional and National Mrs PICPA Beauty and Brain Competition winner. PICPA is a national professional organization for certified public accountants.” Despite maintaining good health for most of her life, Evangeline had to undergo thyroid surgery which made her reassess her approach to nutrition and fitness.
As a very motivated 59-year old, it was a shock to be told the impact her thyroid surgery would have on her metabolism, and consequently her figure. “In 2013, I underwent Thyroid surgery where my Endocrinologist recommended I make significant changes to my diet and exercise regime. Especially if I wanted to maintain my figure.” Her inspired action was to join the Father Saturnino Urios University gym where she worked. Evangeline consistently attended the gym for five years. “I was awarded the gyms ‘look-good, feel-good’ award for my efforts”. But with her busy work schedule, business trips and caring for her family into retirement she was looking for more than a gym membership alone.
Evangeline’s quest for health is fuelled by her family history.
“My parents and my siblings all suffer from high blood pressure, which can have dire consequences. So, I have to watch my diet and manage my weight to avoid such illness.” Along with her own inner drive for health and physical fitness, Evangeline understands the importance of her contribution to the lives around her. “I’m motivated by the fact that to take care of other people, I have to take care of myself first. My 12-year old son is my inspiration to stay healthy so that I can still take care of him even into retirement.”
