Total weight lost: 89kg
My childhood was filled with lots and lots of food. I was always the ‘cutie pie’ of my family as I had chubby cheeks. My friends would be active and enjoy sports but I would prefer to watch and eat snacks. My family encouraged my eating and it was easy to gain weight.
As I grew older, I realised that being ‘cute’ and overweight was not helping me at all. I was ashamed of my body, always tired and became anti-social to avoid people making fun of me. I knew I had to do something.
I tried to start exercising and resolved to run for 30 minutes every day but for me even walking for 5 minutes was a huge effort. I started to lose hope that I’d ever be able to lose weight.
I told my mother that I was so desperate that I was considering surgery. To my surprise, she was not supportive of the idea. She was normally always behind me in my decisions but she suggested I try Cambridge Weight Plan instead.
I was nervous before my first appointment, thinking that people may make fun of me. But my Consultant explained everything and reassured me that if I stuck to the Plan then I would see the results I wanted.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was allowed to eat and the products tasted great. Within one week I had lost 4kg and was feeling great. With the support of my Consultant, I managed to lose 89kg in one year.
Now, I am able to do things which were impossible before, like playing sports and being more active and social. Most importantly, I’m not ashamed of myself anymore!
Thank you Cambridge Weight Plan for helping me to change my life!
