CAROLYN GIBSON - FOUNDER
Gibson, founder of Weigh In Slimming Club, which are now the Kiwi
KISS Slimming Clubs, and author of ten best
selling books, has achieved a weight loss of 28 kilos and kept
that weight off now for over 25 years.
Carolyn is married with one daughter Victoria. Born in Auckland,
Carolyn has travelled extensively in England, Ireland and Europe
and also lived in Tahiti for 4 years and American Samoa for 3 years.
Living overseas, especially in the 1970s, introduced her to many
foods and meals that were unavailable in New Zealand at that time.
In 1989 Carolyn enrolled at Auckland University and graduated
with a double major in Psychology and Education degree. She achieved
the Senior Education Prize in two consecutive years.
Gibson-Clarke may have had what seemed an advantage in being Carolyn
Gibson's daughter but it didn't make losing the weight any easier
Victoria lost a total of 26 kilos in one year after finally reaching
the point where she understood that in order to achieve something
you have to first take responsibility for yourself.
People often comment to Victoria how lucky she is to be so slim.
Her reply is simple:
"I am this size because I worked hard to achieve my goal
and had to make many personal and behavioural changes - now
that I am at my goal I value what I have achieved and am prepared
to work just as hard to maintain it".
Victoria is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer.
She co-authored the Kiwi KISS Workout book
and also the newly released Kiwi KISS All
She works full time with Carolyn at Kiwi KISS where she is responsible
for the development and testing of new KISS recipes and the preparation
of food for the classes. She also teaches at Browns Bay and attends
other classes with Carolyn as a personal assistant.
Victoria is married and has just moved into her new home with
her dream kitchen where she can't wait to start testing lots of
delicious Kiwi KISS recipes.
