I’ve been overweight since my early twenties watching my weight slowly creep up and up. I stopped doing activities I loved and avoided situations where I felt my weight would be judged. I tried slimming world and lost a few pounds here and there but never managed to stick to it.
In June 2014 I found Slim & Save after a negative comment about my appearance spurred me into deciding I would do something about it. The first few days were hard but I quickly got into the swing of the lifestyle plan. It suited my life perfectly as I could eat a modified meal in the evening with my two children.
The weight started to fall off and by my holiday in August I had lost nearly 3 stone and had gone from a size 22 to a 16. Two weeks off plan whilst away but I came back and got straight back on until December 2014 by which point I’d lost over 5 stone. A break over Christmas where I managed to make sensible choices showed me that Slim & Save had changed my relationship with food and put me back in control. Back on plan in January and at the beginning of April hit my original goal of 11 stone and I am now wearing size 10 clothes and feel fantastic.
My life has improved in so many ways, I am more confident and outgoing, have so much more energy and have got back into the activities I enjoyed before. I am so glad I found Slim & Save as I don’t think any other diet would have worked for me in the same way this has.
