After a crippling year, I felt and looked awful! I consulted with Dr Ruth who sold me on the Real Food Real Weight Loss programme. I convinced a work colleague to come for the ride with me and I would advise anyone contemplating this programme, to do it with someone, to share the ups and downs, recipes, food and of course weight loss comparisons!!
I had a relatively slow start and got a bit despondent, but thanks to Connie and the team, she kept me going and told me ‘it will work – just persevere!’ Of course I did this and at about week 3, things finally started to happen! This was very motivating and when entering the reset stage, this is when I lost most of the weight. The first three weeks were HARD! 500 calories, no wine (which as the pictures show, I love!), and not much weight loss for my huge efforts – needless to say, I was a bit grumpy! My poor, suffering husband copped it a fair bit!
Once I was seeing results, my life changed! I was up every morning exercising, my eating habits changed completely, people were complimenting me and I felt the best I had in many, many years. Six months on, I am still feeling great, will NEVER go back to my old habits and love shopping for size 10 clothes which usually look nice!
A big thank you to Connie and the team – the whole experience has changed my life!
