"I managed to get back in my wedding dress (after 26yrs) with the zip done up!!
Ok here goes….
Me: 5ft 4in (just!)
Age: 57y (just!)
Highest weight: 13st 13.8lbs (under 14stone…just!) Xmas 2021
Initial Goal weight 10st 7lb
I have had a weight problem all my life, I’ve tried all the usual slimming groups and the Fast800 diet and lost and gained the same weight including a bit more each time.
I found Clair’s LWLW academy at the end of July. By then I had managed to get to 12 stone. Joined up and haven’t looked back. With her help and coaching I have managed to lose virtually every week, even though birthdays, holidays, and Christmas etc.
I reached my revised goal weight of 10 stone 3 days before Christmas but have carried on to my 3rd goal weight of 9st 7lbs by Easter.
I have lost now 4 and a half stone and lost 10 inches off both my waist and hips! Going from a size 16 to a size 10/12 and I feel great.
Reasons for my weight loss…. My dad is diabetic, and I didn’t want to follow in his footsteps. I am an older mum, so I want to try and be around for as long as possible. I felt heavy and fat, even getting out of the bath was an effort! Plus, I love clothes and couldn’t wear what I wanted to.
I purchased some Renpho scales and was shocked to see my stats, I was mainly interested in the visceral fat reading, scared of the hidden fat doing all the damage around my internal organs.
What worked for me…..
Oh, and I managed to get back in my wedding dress (after 26y) with the zip done up!
My advice……Remember it’s your choice…..it gets easier and is soooo worth it!
Now just got to work out my journey from here….. 😊
"I've lost nearly four and a half stone. But somehow, even more important than that is that I have this collection of amazing tools for my life that I have learnt to be able to apply in lots of different situations. I use them at work. I use them in my relationship with my husband. I use them in my relationship with my grown-up children."
"I am pleased about sustained weight loss, of course. But more importantly, my beliefs have shifted that I can manage my emotional eating. I’m not doing it every day, but I can truly see a future where I am at peace with myself and have created a healthy eating programme that I look forward to."
