Me and my husband had been trying to conceive baby number two for nearly 4 years. We knew we needed IVF but my weight was a problem. I have always struggled with my weight through poor eating habits and chronic IBS. But turning 30 last year made me realise i had to do something if i wanted a chance of ivf. My weight loss went well with calorie counting but i stalled for over 3 months yoyoing up and down but never low enough for the IVF treatment. Enough was enough and i got the ok from my G.P to try a VLCD and found slim and save.
Slim and save not only got the pounds off but ive barely suffered any chronic ibs symptoms since i started and have got down to my lowest weight my husband has ever seen me, and we've been together 10 years!!! I was a size 20-22 and now i am 12-14 and my bmi is just 27 ( needed 30 for IVF) and i obviously feel great. But the best bit of all is we start our IVF cycle in just over a weeks time. I couldn't have done it without slim and save and the amazing support from fellow dieters on the forum and the super friendly helpful staff!
