Clare lost 9 stone in 10 months…and went from a size 24 to a slender 12.
“I was scared of catching COVID and dying”
Before starting LighterLife Clare felt very depressed and helpless.
“Although I knew what I should be eating to lose weight I couldn’t get my head around doing it. I had no energy and the simplest of task left me shattered. I had back and knee pain and wasn’t active at all. I’ve been trying to lose weight for the last 30 years, when the COVID pandemic hit it definitely had an impact on me as I was really scared that if I caught it, I could end up seriously ill or dead.
I then saw a magazine with the LighterLife Flexi-Fasting plan in it and gave that a go for 3 weeks. I was scanning Facebook and looking at the LighterLife TotalFast Support Group to see how people were getting on, on their TotalFast journey, I decided that as the Foodpacks tasted so good I could have 4 each day and lose my weight a lot quicker. Plus moving away from food helped me concentrate on the CBT and facing up to the issue I had with food.
Every week I attended my meetings with my Mentor, Debbie either face to face or via Zoom. I also really benefitted from the Facebook live sessions run by Natalie on a Wednesday.
Since losing weight I have had my wedding rings made smaller by 1.5 sizes and I feel so much healthier and happier. Shopping is going to be a whole new experience, I also treated myself to some Dyson hair straighteners – wow, I love them.
I’m looking forward to starting the Management plan now and trying new healthy recipes and maintaining my weight.”
