Why did you choose to be a part of Wife Swap Australia?
I love the American and UK version and have always enjoyed the episodes where there has been a positive outcome when the families make changes and improve their lives.
How did you find the experience?
I found it very exhausting but the experience was definitely worth it. I became emotionally involved with the children and one in particular, so I found it difficult to leave. I feel a great sense of satisfaction knowing that I put in 100%.
What was the highlight of being involved on Wife Swap?
The highlight was being able to help such a large family make positive lifestyle and diet changes that will improve their quality of life.
What was the hardest obstacle or challenge you faced?
The biggest obstacles were being away from my family, not being able to go to the gym and not eating a balanced healthy diet.
What one thing did you take away from your experience that you'll apply to your own family life?
I have learnt not to judge people too quickly.
What do you think you taught the other family?
I was able to make the Daly family see that their lifestyle was not a healthy one and that their entire family would continue to put on weight unless they made some changes to their lifestyle. I was able to show the father that some of his children were very unhappy with their bodies and the consequences of this, which was a big thing. The parents had no idea that their children wanted to change. I was able to demonstrate how to live a healthy lifestyle by eating well and exercising daily.
