Jag’s story

  • Length maintaining: 21 months*
  • Weight loss plan: Total
  • Followed the LighterLife Management plan

Jag Mankoo – ‘What I like about LighterLife is the fast, safe, weight loss.’*

Jag weighed 17st before joining LighterLife, and now her family hardly recognise her!

After looking through some holiday photos Jag found her anxiety levels rising. ‘I’d never been that big before...I realised I had to do something about my weight.

I went shopping for clothes and found I’d gone up from a size 20 to a size 22. I knew I was overweight, but suddenly I looked bigger than ever.

Before starting LighterLife I’d been on various diets, but my attitude was a bit half-hearted. LighterLife was different, with groups that specialised in helping clients understand their relationship with food.

Since losing over 7st* I’m told I look like a different person. My face is much slimmer. I’m also far more confident. In fact, at one recent family gathering an uncle didn’t recognise me. We were chatting away and then he asked: ‘Where is Jag?’ I said: ‘I’m Jag!’ and he was really stunned.

My advice to anyone contemplating LighterLife is that if you are ready to make lasting changes then just go for it. If you are committed and you follow the programme, you will have amazing results.’

Denise Welch's story

"What I quickly realised through the LighterLife group work was that I often listened to the Child's voice inside my head: the rebel that says 'Go on, you deserve it.' I was ignoring my rational, Adult voice"
