Success Stories – Lucy

Having hidden behind trees every time the camera came out during our summer holidays I thought it was time to sort myself out. I was in my late 40s and realised if I didn’t address my weight and sedentary lifestyle soon I would never do it with that came obvious health risks.  I had tried almost every diet plan in the past with limited success and my only regular exercise was walking our two dogs.

So in September I signed up and with Julie’s encouragement and advice I adopted a healthy eating plan that could easily fit in with the family as well as a new exercise regime. The results were instant with staggering weight loss of 4-5 pounds a week from the start.

Now, 6 months on, having lost 3 ½ stone I am feeling literally a new woman. People comment that I am half the woman I used to be and I feel good- confident, healthy and full of energy. I am now running 2-3 times a week as well as cycling and of course walking the dogs. Since I had my picture taken I have continued to lose those last few pounds too . I could not have done it on my own and Julie’s quiet inspiration, advice and support certainly were the catalyst for my change. Thank you
