Michaela Has Won The Battle
Michaela saysÖ.

I have always battled with my weight. 25 years ago I thought that I was finally winning the battle after losing a lot of weight. This boosted my confidence and I went on to meet and marry my husband and then have a lovely daughter. Over the years my weight gradually increased and with this my confidence fell, I was once again losing the battle.

I was at an all time low with my weight, even people in the street who I had never met before commented about it, which hurt deeply, but at the time I found the best thing to help me feel better was to go and eat something Ė food became my comfort. I continued on like this until I was in my forties and on medication for high blood pressure. I was fed up with feeling fat and unhealthy. Whatever I wore looked awful, I was really unhappy and this affected all aspects of my life. I decided, with the help and encouragement of my friend Michelle, it was time to do something about it and so I joined Weightcare.

What a decision.

After the initial shock of standing on the scales and weighing 18 stones 9lbs things gradually got better. I got to know my Consultant Sharon and the rest of the ladies and gents at the class and with their help and encouragement the weight began to drop off.

Health wise things couldnít be better. After being on medication for 14 years for high blood pressure my doctor has taken me off the tablets completely. My blood pressure is normal without any medication at all and the doctor puts this all down to my weight loss.

I feel as though I have not only won the battle but that I have won the war and this time itís for life, thereíll be no more looking back in another 14 years! I donít feel deprived of anything, in fact I feel better than I have in years. My confidence and self-esteem have grown and at last I can wear clothes that I feel good in.

Iím here to stay - and feeling great!
