I started Shake That Weight after a family bereavement, when my weight spiraled out of control. I knew I had gained a lot of weight but I just couldn’t admit to myself how much. I had been asked to sing at a wedding and when I watched the video back I couldn’t believe that it was me. I was in shock and something had to be done.
I decided that a shake diet was what I needed because it allowed for me to detox from all the bad foods that I was eating. I found Shake That Weight easy to follow and it really works! I made great friends with the others in the private Facebook group, which I found really helped motivate me to lose the weight.
I started by doing the TFRD for 2 weeks and then switched to VLCD with a healthy 400 calorie dinner. As time progressed, I re-educated myself about fitness and nutrition as I slowly cut out the shakes and started exercising more and more until I caught the workout bug. My physically health became better and my blood pressure returned too normal. I also gained much better mental health, feeling very proactive and most importantly, I was happier.
I lost 4 stone within 7-8 months and, I now feel like I can do anything. I would still like to lose a little more as I have caught the fitness bug!
Shake That Weight helped me start my new lifestyle and for that I am eternally grateful. I wouldn’t recommend meal replacements as a long term solution but certainly as a way to kick start weight loss.
I recently applied to the ballot of next year’s London marathon! Crazy! I couldn’t run for two minutes when I was bigger but now I feel I can take on the world.
