I simply could not stick to a ‘diet’. I would starve myself, only to then overeat. I would restrict foods I enjoyed, only to binge on them later. Above all – It was embarrassing and I felt ashamed.
I constantly asked myself – “Why do I find it so difficult?” I started to believe I was truly hopeless, and maybe I was one of those women who just couldn’t lose weight.
I knew people were looking at me, thinking –“She keeps talking about how she wants to lose weight, but she still looks exactly the same. She clearly doesn’t want it bad enough.”
I hated the way my body looked. I kept gaining weight and before I knew it I was the biggest I’d ever been. I tried everything you could imagine to lose the weight, and I mean everything.
We’re talking low-carb, Keto, Weight Watchers, Slimming world.
I always struggled with PCOS & hormonal issues. Which made a daunting job feel overwhelming. After a long journey of trial and error, eventually I lost the 5 stone and found the golden key to sustainable fat loss. In fact, I even got to the stage where I felt comfortable enough in my body to enter a bikini competition!
Having made all the mistakes in the book, I knew exactly what NOT to do for simple, sustainable weight loss.
One of the most powerful lessons I learned was that it’s perfectly possible (and even advantageous) to lose weight and get the exact type of body you want whilst eating tasty foods, continuing to socialise with friends, and without having to slaughter yourself in the gym every single night.
Not only that, but I discovered that, with the right approach, weight rebound can be a thing of the past.
