What led you to choose Cambridge Weight Plan?

It has been easy and I have found the whole process easy to do. I am very committed to losing my weight. Lalita has been very supportive and very encouraging. The products have been surprising filling and really yummy
How did being overweight impact your life?
I was unhappy and at times I struggled to get out of bed. I had a lot of aches and pains I used to get my boys to help me get off the couch as I struggled to get up by myself. I was also injuring myself a lot, with back strains.
My husband loves me however I look but in myself I didn’t feel attractive I felt fat and I was unhappy.
