“Up until my early twenties, I was very fit and regularly exercised. However, I am a comfort eater and when I lost both my mother and father within five years of each other I turned to food. I felt like my emotional wellbeing was declining rapidly and my self-esteem and confidence had hit an all-time low. Physically I was suffering with simple tasks such as walking the dog and with my job as a carpenter – it is a very physical job and I was struggling.
“One evening a friend visited and could see I wasn’t happy. She had started Cambridge Weight Plan and she convinced me to meet her Consultant. I decided to give it a go and have never looked back. I was hooked after losing 15lb in my first week and the weight continued to fall off, week by week.
“My life has been transformed and I feel like a different person. I have never been able to shop for clothes in trendy shops. I usually shopped in Tesco and ASDA for XXXL sized clothes. I am now buying clothes because I like them, not just because they fit.
“I enjoy exercise again having regained my love for fitness. I walk my dog for miles every week and we are both feeling the benefits. My energy levels have soared. I wake up at 4.30am to walk along the beach every day, work is a doddle and after work I still have energy to spare to go to the gym. I feel much more confident and when I catch sight of myself in a mirror I cannot believe it’s me.
“I have never found weight loss easy. Among my friendship group I was always known as ‘Big Steve’ but I was so unhappy I knew something had to change. This Plan is unlike any I have ever tried before – it helped me re-train and re-educate my thinking towards food. The one-to-one support with my Consultant was amazing.
“One day I hope I can help others as a Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant – a new body and a new career.”
