“You wouldn’t think to look at me that I used to weigh more than 20 stone and hid from family events and any type of socialising. My mental state was a wreck and my self-confidence was at rock bottom.
“I began looking into a gastric band but also started thinking of ways to take my life. The lowest point coming when I found myself standing waiting for a train to work, looking at the tracks, and thinking how easy it would be just to step off and leave all of my problems behind.
“I’m now in control of my life, and my confidence is returning. I even got on stage recently to do a lip sync battle; something I never would have done before my transformation!
“I can honestly say if I hadn’t found Cambridge Weight Plan and my amazing Consultant then I wouldn’t be standing here right now.”

“I was on bed rest from week 19 until I gave birth and I gained so much weight, my whole life and the people around me suffered. I would not see anyone, I lost interest in everything I used to enjoy, my marriage deteriorated and my husband became a stranger… we argued constantly.
“Then finally my son was born. I was so happy and relieved but at the same time I felt so ashamed when it took numerous people to lift me onto the recovery bed after my C-section because of my weight.
“My baby was six months old and had only been out of the house a couple of times. I needed to do something before my whole life fell apart so I contacted my Consultant Linda Danks and started my Cambridge Weight Plan journey.
“I now have a new zest for life and am no longer anxious. I did not have my photo taken with my baby, Jesse, until he was almost eight months old but have now. My marriage is also much better… my weight loss has given us that spark back.”

“I’m a hairdresser and when my youngest son started school I knew I had to go back to work.
“I got myself a job at a local salon. All the girls were so slim and glamorous and there was me, wearing a size 22, and not able to shampoo properly because I was too big to fit between the basins.
“Then, while doing one of my customer’s hair she told me she was doing Cambridge Weight Plan, had lost a stone on it and how fantastic her Consultant was. I took the Consultant, Jacqui’s number and called her the next day.
“I have never felt so confident in my life. I’m happy, healthy and can run around and play with my children. I feel so confident with my husband now and our marriage is so great we’re even renewing our wedding vows next year and I cannot wait to go dress shopping.
“I no longer feel dread about going out of the house in case someone thinks I’m fat and ugly.”
