Weight before: After:= loss of 12.3kg
Waist before: After: = loss of 7.5 inches
In my time I have tried every diet you can think of, from the Atkins diet to the British Heart Foundation diet. I used to be a size 12, but over the last five years my weight ballooned and I went up to a size 18-20. Sadly, the ‘before’ photo is proof.
When I heard about the LiYF programme I was sceptical, but I really needed something to kick me back into shape. The programme claims to help you lose 6-16kg with very little exercise, which is good for me because I’m allergic to the gym!
The diet was simple to follow. The meal planner made things really easy and the support from my weight loss counsellor was superb. All my questions and queries were answered really quickly.
It took me time to get used to the meal plan but I was surprised to find that I wasn’t left hungry. I thought giving up carbs and sugar was going to be extremely difficult but I was proved wrong. Filling up on salad was more than enough and my stomach shrunk quickly.
I took the protein shakes and sprays, which tasted a little funny but were easy to administer and knowing that I would lose at least 6kg literally made them easier to swallow.
“I have found my cheekbones and waist”
After 10 weeks I dropped three dress sizes, lost 7.5 inches from my waist and 12.3kg. I have continued to lose weight and three weeks after finishing the programme I can now fit into my size 12 trousers and I have lost an amazing 19kg in total!
I have found my cheekbones and my waist under the fat I had and I have lost my treble chin. The transformation has boosted my confidence and I feel on top on the world. My family and friends tell me I look amazing and ask how I did it.
I never once imagined I could achieve these results. I needed a miracle and got it in the form of LiYF. The programme has changed my eating habits, and although I do still enjoy the odd naughty food it is limited.
I love my shape now and I aim to keep it.
