I am a primary music teacher in Brisbane.
At my biggest, I was literally and figuratively weighed down and I had given up hope.
I had tried many other weight loss plans and even the lemon and soup diet. Some diets had more success than others, but I never managed to keep the weight off. After getting married, I quickly piled on 10-15kgs. I was in denial and stuck in a horrible, endless cycle of binge eating. I had no hope, no confidence, and no self-love. I was quickly approaching my 30th birthday when a student came up to me and called me “Mrs. Fat”. This forced me to face the fact that I desperately needed to do something. Thankfully, when I was visiting a friend, she told me all about the 1:1 Diet.
The significant difference with Cambridge to other diets I have tried is my Consultant. Catherine had previously completed the plan, so she understands what it takes. Having weekly weigh-ins kept me accountable and motivated. Catherine offered support and encouragement when I needed it. The extensive range of delicious products are great for on the go. After hitting my goal weight and moving into Stabilisation, I have been able to learn new eating habits and I know that I have the skills I need to stay healthy for the rest of my life. Thankfully, I did not have any serious health issues when I was overweight. But I knew that I was heading in that direction. Now, I rarely need any medication for my asthma. I no longer suffer from painful chafing between my legs during summer.
Sleeping, in general, was becoming quite uncomfortable the bigger I got. When lying down, I felt like my chest was suffocating me. It also caused me to snore severely. I no longer snore, and I sleep a million times better.
I honestly do not know what would have happened if I did not discover the 1:1 Diet when I did. I have come to realise that who I am now, is who I was always meant to be. I also realised that I had to go through this journey, to grow as a person. It has been an empowering, challenging, and uplifting journey.
