After years of yo yo dieting, I recalled my mum being the most successful she had ever been at dieting at exactly my age and decided it was ‘now or never’. Didn’t quite know how I was going to achieve it and spent time researching all sorts of dieting to find the right one for me – a friend told me about Slim & Save and now I am so very, very grateful.
I had been made redundant, money was a bit tight and spending large amounts on diet products, to fail again, was just not an option but Slim & Save actually saved me money on my weekly shop so off I went on my journey.
I did eventually get a job but it was away from home, I was living in hotels four nights a week with no access to cooking facilities but despite this, my pure determination to get where I wanted to be got me through – shakes, bars and soups were my meals during the week and then on a weekend I had the food packs with vegetables etc.
I wasn’t the fastest at losing the weight but nothing was going to stop me achieving my goal which I did in November – in just about 7.5 months I dropped from a size 20 down to a size 12/14.
Now I feel fantastic, I suffer with arthritis in my feet/ankles and although it will never go away, the pain I suffer has dramatically improved. I cannot even remember what the discomfort of heartburn feels like and most of all I just love myself in my clothes again.
More importantly, my whole way of thinking about food and eating has been transformed – I do naturally make healthy choices automatically and I don’t feel guilty if I do have the odd treat now and again.
The Slim & Save team are absolutely amazing, they are there for you all day, every day and most nights which is commitment you just don’t find in many organisations.
I cannot recommend this diet highly enough – yes commitment is needed and there are some days when you might be severely tempted to give up but, would I do it again? (not that I intend ever needing to) – a definite YES !!!
