Lost 8 stone
After previously failing in his every attempt to lose weight, Paul shed 8 stone with Motivation and has since kept it off for over 2 years. He believes so strongly in the Programme that he has changed his career to run his own clinic.
“Motivation thought me that it wasn't a diet I needed, it was a lifestyle change. After only 8 weeks my doctor took me off all my prescribed blood pressure tablets, which I had been on for 3 years. After reaching my initial weight loss goal, I carried on for another 10 weeks and lost a further 2 stone. Now I'm off all my medication and feel years younger than I did before I found Motivation. The Maintenance Programme is just a way of life now and there is no chance I will ever go back to bad habits. I have never felt so good, looked so good or been so satisfied with what I have achieved.”
Lost 23 stone between them
Between them, Frank and his wife Sandra lost an amazing 23 stone after they joined Motivation and they have both successfully maintained their preferred weight for over three years.
“My life before joining Motivation was at the point were everything seemed to be getting harder. I was tired and inclined to come home and sit in front of the television, and that was about it. Over the years we were eating all the wrong things and the weight crept on. It started to affect our health. We were both diagnosed as diabetics,” he says.
“I can honestly say that I never found the Programme that hard. It was just a matter of getting it into my head and when I focused on it and the weight started to come off, it got easier. It was very easy to fit into our lifestyle. The best thing about the Programme was the support and I can’t praise my adviser highly enough. If I had a good week or a bad week, she always got to the root of what happened. I didn’t believe I could lose the amount of weight I did. Life started to change completely. I got into walking and cycling, which I haven’t done for 30 years. I feel now there isn’t anything I can’t do!
Lost 10 stone
Sandra recalls that she and her husband Frank had both been diagnosed with diabetes, but since losing their excess weight they’ve come off all medication and they now enjoy a much better quality of life.
“The Programme was very good. Getting into it was the hardest part. Once I got into a routine it was great. My life has changed in that I feel more confident in myself. I’ve more willpower to do things now and just get up and say ‘right this is it!’ It’s a new lease of life completely. Between us we’ve lost 23 stone and maintained our weight for over three years,” she says.
Lost 2½ stone
Before she joined Motivation Aimee was very unhappy with her weight and the way her life was. She couldn’t buy fashionable clothes and found it depressing having to wear bigger sizes. When she saw photos of herself taken at her birthday party, she decided it was time to take action by joining Motivation.
“Motivation worked wonders for me. I am a much happier person and feel much better about myself. I am delighted to have lost weight and that I can keep it off. Now I can go out with my friends wearing the latest fashions, my family and friends are delighted for me and it’s great to hear all the compliments. I love shopping now and I am delighted to be maintaining my weight.”
