Faith G had already tried ‘all those types of things’ before. She eventually gave our program a go…and has discovered 2 things – it’s different and it works! We have been so impressed with her tenacity over the long term to stay focused on what she wanted and why. She is currently down 3 stone and is still on track for her healthy weight. This is what she had to share with us…
Where do you live?
Do you have or work with children – if so doing what?
Yes, I have two boys 13 and 15 and I work with children and young people on weekends doing youth work.
How did your weight affect you/and how you were around the children you work with?
I was very inactive and always feeling tired and aching in my joints especially my hips and knees. I was always feeling ill and continuously visited my doctor. Very often I would become emotional as I felt that I was not able to do a lot of activities with my kids.
Have you ever tried to lose weight before?
I tried umpteen times on various diets, I spent large amounts of money in order to loose weight.
So why did you choose this program?
This program was highly recommended to me by Claire, but at first I thought not another one of those, so I left it for a while. Then she came again and asked me had I thought about the weight loss program. Curiosity got the better of me, so I decided to give it a try, to be honest half-heartedly really, not truly believing that this would work or even satisfy my hunger pangs, I ventured into the program.
What is your favourite new product so far?
That’s easy. The strawberry Nutrimeal shake will always remain my favourite.
What has it been like losing weight this way?
It’s been so different to anything I tried before. I am feeling much more confident about myself. I am a lot fitter, healthier and much more agile. Most importantly I have dropped two dress sizes which is my biggest achievement! [woo hoo!-Ed]
What has surprised you so far?
That the one and only program which I thought would not help me, has in fact helped me to lose the weight. It really is the healthy way to do it…
What was your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge was having to prepare dinner for my family and learning to think differently about the ingredients that I used. I wanted to use stuff which was wholesome and healthy for everyone, not just myself.
How helpful / supportive were the people around you?
My family especially were extremely supportive as they realised the importance of being healthy and staying healthy. They have watched me stick to my commitment to get healthy, and I know they have benefited too. I started noticing my Peanut Butter bars were going down faster than I was eating them 😉
Have you noticed any changes other than weight loss / shrinking!?
Yes. There are a number of changes as I started to use the products and get into the program. It was wonderful being able to move more easily, and as my joint pain went I could get in the gym and start exercising. Relatively quickly I found that I was much more alert, energetic and flexible.
How are you feeling about the next phase?
I am not quite where I want/need to be but I’m on route. I still need to lose one more dress size but I am very confident that I will get there soon.
What do your children think of your weight loss journey so far?
They are very pleased about my weight loss. They have a more active Mum. It’s good for them that I’m happier, healthier and more confident.
Anything else you think other people should know about this experience?
I did it and if there ever was a skeptic, truly I was one! But I am glad that I eventually stopped to listen, and gave it a proper try.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Faith. You are looking great – and we know you are enjoying your new wardrobe too 😉 We know you will be a real inspiration to other Mums…and what an amazing example you have set for your family. That’s leadership in our book!
