Weightcare Slimmer of the Year 2013 FINALIST
“You will always be big, you take after your Dad” I’ve heard this so often throughout my life and so that’s what I accepted for 60 years! Now I know that’s just not true! I’ve only been chosen for something once before; as a girl I was asked to present a bouquet to the carnival queen. Being big and desperately shy I was terrified and vividly remember refusing to curtsey on the big day! That was over 50 years ago, but the issues have always affected me. I’ve always tried not to draw attention to myself, always expected criticism and found praise difficult to accept.

I have lost weight previously but always put it back on and more. I always felt that dieting was a temporary thing, that I could then get back to ‘normal’. I felt deprived, hard done by, resentful of slim people who ate what they liked and unhappy with my size because it prevented me from doing things in life – perhaps even getting married!

So what changed? I admitted to myself I had a problem.. and I discovered Weightcare! I now have a completely different mindset about my relationship with food. I feel in control for the first time in my life. I look forward to my class each week, everyone is so friendly and Glynis is terrific at inspiring us all. Losing weight is never easy but this time I haven’t found it difficult – nobody is more amazed than me at how much I’ve lost!

I no longer take tablets for high blood pressure, I go swimming and walk for miles with my head held high. I’m more confident, I don’t feel deprived or hard done by anymore. I always hated clothes shopping, now I love it. I wear dresses and tailored trousers and I’m looking forward to buying a fitted winter coat, preferably in red!

The most important change for me is that after living with criticism all my life I now receive so many compliments and so much pleasure that I wouldn’t trade these feelings for anything. There’s nothing temporary about this – it’s forever. Thank you Weightcare!
