Hello, I’m Michelle and this is my weight loss story:
I had always been slim, but I suffer with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) that can lead to weight gain and type 2 diabetes. As I moved through my 30s into my 40s weight really began to build up, particularly around my middle and my insulin levels started to climb to borderline diabetes.
I lead an active life, exercise regularly and have tried many popular diets, with very little success and I was becoming increasingly frustrated at my constant weight gain. Not only that, I was constantly suffering with migraines and insomnia as well as a very low self-esteem. Looking back I now realise I was depressed. Most importantly, I had a young family and I wanted to be here to see them grow up, so I knew I had to do something about getting my weight under control.
In late 2012, after seeing the results my friend was achieving with the 1:1 Cambridge Diet, I decided to give it a go myself, and what a great decision! It has been life changing for me. I lost 22kg but found myself and my family have ‘me’ back! I personally found the journey easier than I expected, it was so inspiring when every week I went for weigh in, my weight had continued to decrease and in under 3 months I was at goal and feeling fantastic! My insulin levels being back to normal range and my health issues have disappeared.
I was chosen as a finalist in the Cambridge Australia Slimmer of the Year in 2013, which was just so exciting!
But the biggest achievement is, I have kept the weight off! By following the program and the ‘Steps’ back into normal eating, I have re-trained my thinking, my portions sizes and my choices. For the first time in years, I am in control of my weight. As you can tell, this has been life changing for me.
My education background is in the science field, and I was so impressed with the ‘science’ behind the diet – and obviously the results – that I became an accredited weight loss consultant for the 1:1 Diet myself. I want to be able to make a difference and give the ‘me’ back to others by helping them through their own weight loss journey.
I understand your struggles as I’ve been there myself.
Personally, I have been awarded a Australian Consultant Sponsor of the Year 2018, multiple Business Development Awards and in 2019 I was awarded Australian Consultant of the Year. More importantly, I have supported multiple slimmers to be finalists in the Australian Slimmer of the Year and a State Winner for 2019.
But, my biggest ‘Award’ is seeing my clients reach their goals, reduce medications and regain their health and lives.
If you need to lose weight and regain your life, I would like to be an inspiration to you, help you begin and complete your own weight loss journey and feel as fantastic as I do!
