I have been overweight my whole life. Even as a child, and probably spent more time on diets than not. However, my weight kept increasing. In January 2021, after blood tests showing I had high cholesterol and being told I was pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure, I committed to making a change. But even with my health as motivation, I still couldn’t seem to eat sensibly.
Then, at the start of February, I started Slim & Save and determined to commit for 100 days. I’m doing Simplicity, so just four packs a day, and it was such a relief not to have to think about what I could and couldn’t eat. It was like a weight being lifted off my shoulders, and the weight just started falling off.
I’ve had days where I’ve felt like cheating, not because I’m hungry but because the old cravings have come back. Still, with the support of the amazing Slim & Save community, I’ve only given in to them a couple of times and got straight back on plan the following day rather than giving up as per previous diets.
Being on Slim & Save has allowed me to take a break from food so I can reset my thinking around food, and I know I’ll be able to re-introduce it in a sensible way when I reach my target. So my 100 days are up, and I’ve lost an incredible 50lbs, have healthy blood pressure, healthy cholesterol levels, and I’m no longer classed as pre-diabetic. I have loads more energy, run up flights of stairs that I used to be out of breath just walking up and feel much happier in myself. But there’s no way I’m stopping now. For the first time in my life, a healthy weight seems achievable rather than just a pipe dream, and I’m going to release the healthy, slim me that I’ve always known is inside me. Here’s to the next 100 days on S’n’S.
