I have always struggled with my weight, and with my relationship with food in general. I desperately wanted to try and do things differently but never had enough will power. I was enjoying life which involved lots of food and travel. I was working hard and relying on takeaways and generally not thinking about what I was eating. However, I just got to the point where I needed to change and do things differently.
I found Slim & Save through another group I was on facebook and a member on there who was saying she was on the diet and ultimately got pregnant due to weight loss. I researched the diet and was sceptical. I have done every diet out there and not stuck to anything. However, Slim & Save attracted me as it was all or nothing, I could see how I could make it work. I didn’t think I would make it much beyond a few stones and I felt that what I needed to lose was just too much and not achievable. I remember saying I’m never going to be skinny or a size 10 lol.
I started strictly doing Simplicity and as the weight started to come off and I developed some confidence I mixed it up with some Lifestyle days. Stone by stone I was more and more amazed and shocked that I was actually doing this and it was working. The journey was not just about weight loss. I needed to recreate my relationship with food, work on impulsive behaviours, binge eating and rediscover food again. The Beck Diet Solution was key to this.
About 8 stone into my 12 stone goal, I found I was pregnant! I was thrilled, and this would have never happened without the diet. As soon as I was allowed I restarted the plan and eventually lost the remaining 4 stone of my goal. But I found I still wasn’t happy and so extended my goal to a further stone and in October I reached 13 stone loss. Still not happy I extended my goal again to 14 stone.
I reached 14 stone lost on Friday 1st Feb. And I was finally content! I’m now a happy size 12/10 with a healthy BMI!
Slim & Save have been so supportive and have changed my life. Slim & Save will always be a part of my life. I am determined to maintain this weight as part of my maintenance plan and so will continue to use the products which I love to help keep me on the straight and narrow!! Thank you so much Slim & Save!
