“I started my weight loss journey after a family holiday. We’d gone away with my parents, partner and children. When we got home Dad was sending some pictures and I came across one of me with my three children and my fiancé. I was horrified, I saw how big I looked and I was so upset because that was the only picture we had of us all together and I looked terrible in it.
“I had been suffering with pain in my knees and generally feeling tired, lethargic and lacking in energy. My portion sizes had slowly been creeping up at meal times and a nightly glass of wine was my way to relax after busy days working and being a mummy. I wasn’t very active and certainly didn’t feel like going to the gym! I decided that I had to make changes.
For the first time in years, I feel amazing
“I contacted my Consultant Sian as soon as my holiday ended. I started the Plan on Sole Source and slowly I stepped up and started introducing light exercise. I did zumba classes once a week and stuck to Plan, which gave me great results. Getting on the scales every week gave me the determination I needed to keep on going. Eventually as I moved up the Steps, I increased my exercise and joined a gym.
“The results have been life changing. I go to the gym and run twice a week. I have much more energy to play with the children and no longer suffer with knee pain! I’ve gone from a size 16 and being terribly unhappy with myself to a size 8, thriving on exercise and for the first time in years, I feel amazing!
“I’ve had a fantastic mentor who really helped me focus and stick to the Plan. I was totally dedicated to following the programme and becoming more active and thanks to this I have changed my life!”
