This month’s slimming superstar of the month is Gemma Romsey who has lost an amazing 6 stone 10 pounds and looks fantastic!
Gemma had always felt she was larger than others, even when she was growing up, but she never did anything to change this. She would hear friends and family tell her ‘you have such a lovely face’ and used to think to herself, ‘ I know, shame about the rest.’ Because of this, Gemma had no confidence and often cried in shop changing rooms because of how she looked and felt. She had tried to diet for many of her teenage years but with little success.
Once she reached 20st 2lbs and was a size 26, she was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) due to her weight. “I was told by the doctors that I could reduce the symptoms but they will never completely go away. Then, I met my now husband when I was at my biggest and decided that I needed to change because I thought ‘who would want to be seen with me?’” She had joined a slimming group, but as soon as she stopped attending, the weight came back on again.
Before she went beyond 18st 9lbs again, Gemma decided she had to do something else. She wanted to start a family with her husband and having PCOS wasn’t going to help. She had seen a friend’s success with The Slimming Clinic on Facebook and quickly messaged her asking for all the details on how she had done so well. “I knew that I had to book my free consultation with The Slimming Clinic and I haven’t looked back since…when I started taking the medication I was a little apprehensive if it would work or not, but it really does. I didn’t get the overwhelming cravings for food I really enjoy and I found it much easier than I initially thought which made it a lot more enjoyable.”
Since losing weight, Gemma now feels like she makes better choices and doesn’t have to think about what she is eating because she has been taught how to make the right choices, including portion sizes and generally healthier foods. She now keeps a food diary, so she has to make a conscious effort to think about what she is eating.
Gemma now weighs 13st 6lbs and loves to go on shopping trips and trying on new styles of clothes in a size 14. “An even bigger achievement from losing weight is that I had a blood test after being at The Slimming Clinic for 5 months and I have proven the doctors wrong and I no longer had PCOS ( my hormones have returned to normal). Now, I look forward to what the future holds with my new knowledge, relationship with food and confident self. And hopefully we’ll be able to start a family of our own at some point all thanks to The Slimming Clinic. To say I am proud of myself is an understatement. Thank you.”
