Total weight lost: 53.7kg
I’ve not always been obese. As a child I played a lot of sports, but in my teenage years I had several injuries that forced me to take long breaks from it. At the same time I started going to more parties and eating junk food with my friends.
When I was 20 I moved to Copenhagen and my weight increased steadily. But I was happy and often I used my size as a joke. I did not feel that being overweight influenced my personality.
It wasn’t until I was at a Christmas party with some friends from school that
realised my weight was a problem. I’d never been the smallest but suddenly I was the biggest! After that, I always found an excuse for why I was unable to meet up even though I really wanted to. I felt disgusting and ugly.
In February 2016 I was on a trip to Bali and Thailand. I felt so self-conscious about how fat I was. When I returned home I read an article in our local newspaper about Maria who was the Cambridge Weight Plan Slimmer of the Year in 2015. I decided to give the diet a go.
In March 2016 I had my first Cambridge Weight Plan product and from that day my life has changed dramatically. Now, I’m cheerful and have regained so much energy.
Since losing weight, I can exercise again and play with my nephews. I’m always surprised to find my old clothes in the closet and see how far I’ve come in the last year.
I am a happier than I have been for many years. I am 100% more positive and my appetite for life is huge again.
And this December, I’m looking forward to going to a Christmas party with my school friends for the first time in seven years!
