I felt like I was trapped inside a fat suit. I was out of breath just going up the stairs and people used to struggle going past me in shop aisles. My weight was hard to manage and I was scared for my health. I just wanted to get myself back again and be the best mum I could be.
After being slim for most of my adult life I started to pile the weight on after my dad died, as food helped me deal with the grief. Then I got pregnant and that piled on more. When my baby was born he was a difficult sleeper. To help deal with the stress, I comfort ate whatever I could get my hands on. The result was that I got to 20 stone.
I started my weight loss journey feeling like I had a mountain to climb but I told myself that every loss was going in the right direction, and I would never weigh that much again. With every stone lost came more confidence. So I enjoyed the journey rather than focusing on my target weight too much.
I love the strict control of the diet and how it takes away temptation. The taste of the products is amazing and the way it controls my hunger has been a key to my success. I was worried I would pile the weight back on but my eating habits have changed forever. I will be forever grateful to Shake That Weight for helping me achieve my self confidence again and at an affordable price.
It took 9 months to lose 8 stone which flew by. Then I maintained this weight for a year. And then I lost the 9th stone in a month. I have since recommended Shake That Weight to my partner and he has lost 30kg so far. Thanks Shake That Weight
