I’m a wife to a very supportive husband and a young 27-year-old mum to a beautiful baby girl and I work as a banker.
Since childhood, I have been teased and bullied for being overweight and I’ve always felt there wasn’t anything I could do but accept it. For me being overweight impacted everything, it made me very self-conscious, unhappy, and always emotional. I always wanted to go out and do girly things like shopping but I knew I wouldn’t fit into the trendy clothes and I didn’t want to embarrass myself.
It affected my social life, I never wanted to go out with friends, and if I was forced to, I was unhappy and would stress about finding an outfit to cover my body.
I chose to be on the 1:1 Diet as I was an unhappy wife and mum. I was not able to walk in my last few weeks of my pregnancy as I couldn’t carry my weight around. When I struggled to get up to my daughter, that was my melting point. I knew that was it, I needed to put myself first and do something my weight.
The 1:1 Diet has changed my life. I’ve found the new me and gotten my confidence back. Since reaching my goal and moving to the maintenance stage of the program, I have decided to become a part-time Cambridge Consultant.
Looking in the mirror, I can’t believe this is the new me. I want to thank my Consultant Nicole, if it wasn’t for her support and encouragement through my journey, I don’t think I would have achieved my dream body.
