Weight Lost: 9 Stone 5 Pounds
I am much happier and energetic now. I love shopping and meeting my friends. What I love the most is people who have not seen me are surprised and shocked to see the new me. Some friends hardly recognized me.
"I have always been very big since my childhood. I had many failed attempts at trying to lose weight; the failed diets, exercising and even trying to stay hungry to reduce my weight really depressed me. I hated going out as I feared that people were staring and talking about me. This really made me upset and made me want to comfort eat. I started to gain more weight and I came to a point in my life that I was unable to have children because of my weight. Surprisingly, I did get pregnant and had twins. This meant I had gained more weight and I was astonishingly at 128kgs. This was the largest I had ever been. I was a size 28 and dreaded to go shopping for clothes. One of my friends joined The Slimming Clinic in Staines and after a few months of not seeing her I noticed a huge difference in her weight. I decided at that point that I was going to lose weight no matter what happened to me. The initial phase was hard, but I kept myself motivated and focused.
I started to lose weight month on month and this kept me going. It took me 18 months to get to where I am now. I started with a weight of 20 stone 2 pounds. 18 months later I weighed 10 stone and 12 pounds. I had literally halved my weight. My dress size dropped from a size 28 to a size 10-12. What had kept me focused was the lovely people at The Slimming Clinic and the continual motivational support that they provided. I am much happier and energetic now. I love shopping and meeting my friends. What I love the most is people who have not seen me are surprised and shocked to see the new me. Some friends hardly recognized me. I am glad I joined The Slimming Clinic and I am glad that I had the inspiration from my friend which led me to believe that if I can lose weight then anyone out there can."
