Weight Loss History

When my youngest daughter was approx 3 years old meal times were horrendous and quite often I would throw my dinner away!

Having mentioned this to my health visitor she suggested Complan.

I found this helped in many ways but that’s all I survived on for a few years with a few meals in between.

Extremely silly and harmful I realise now with no fibre and a resulting bowel problem. I have never been on a ‘correct diet’ until now.

Have you lost weight before and regained the weight?

My crazy diets that I have concocted myself have lost me weight but I didn’t enjoy them and I was forever hungry.

They eventually stopped and yes my weight crept back up slowly with a few added pounds on top!

How being overweight has affected you…

Over the past 2 years I have noticed weight gain.

I had always weighed 9st for many years. When this year I weighed my heaviest at 13st 3lbs I lost all confidence in myself.

I was terribly unhappy and hated my appearance especially in photographs!

I would not go swimming and do the things I normally enjoyed and because I was so miserable I ate for comfort, nibbling in between meals.

My clothes got tighter and very uncomfortable. I thought maybe I would always be this weight and nothing I did or tried in the past would lose it.

Motivation to Lose Weight

Basically I feel good now I have lost two stone. My clothes are baggy in fact all my skirts now are hipsters!

I can look in the mirror without cringing. I have more energy.

My husband is very, very supportive and tells me often how well I am doing.

He can even lift me up now without damaging his back!

All of this is so motivating and each week as I get closer to my goal weight I get more determined plus I am happy!

Discovering Weight Loss Resources

I was actually looking on the net for a low carb diet but when I read up on it I knew it wasn’t for me; too close to the previous diets I have tried.

I simply typed in Weight Loss in the search engine and found the site.

How Weight Loss Resources Helps

Oh the site has helped me enormously. I love it!!

I enjoy preparing my food plan. I have so much more knowledge on what foods to eat and what to avoid.

I have found with bread I had no idea how many calories were in one slice. I haven’t eaten it since!

I weigh all my food. I actually have breakfast now. My meals are much more appetising. I eat more salad and vegetables now.

I think it helped having the first free trial. Looking up calories, protein, fibre etc I was hooked!

I don’t have late night suppers anymore. I don’t eat as much chocolate although once a fortnight I have a ‘treat’ night when I indulge but I can usually shake the calories off before weigh day. I look forward to weigh day looking at my charts.

I use the pie charts constantly to monitor I am eating correctly. I measure myself and I have lost 12 inches!!

I have treated myself to some hipsters, SIZE 12!!! I have longed for hipsters!

The Best of Weight Loss Resources

I mainly look at the food diary searching for different meals.

Just lately I have joined the Christmas Challenge and get very excited when I get the odd reply; I do tend to go into the Messages now just to check my inbox.

I have had constipation recently which I think was due to stress and mentioned this on the boards. I got two helpful replies back on what food to eat.

Beverley's Tips for Losing Weight

When I first saw how many calories I was allowed per day I was horrified that I would be eating enough.

Enough research on the food database encouraged me to make more appetising meals, low calorie.

My tips would be:

  • Simply enjoy and have fun on
  • Save your calories and exercise calories and have a little treat after your weigh day. It means a lot to me to have that little extra treat after being so good all week.
  • Also never cheat on your calories, write everything down no matter how small the serving, you will be surprised how the calories amount up. Then watch the lbs drop!!!

I just want to say a big thank you to the team at Weight Loss Resources. I think the site is fantastic.

It has certainly encouraged me and for £9 per month well worth it.

I am far more confident than I have been for months and I still have a little over a stone left to go.

I feel I will never put the weight back on again but if I did I would certainly come back to the site.

When I reach my goal I will continue for a short while with WLR to maintain my weight.

Also WLR has helped my children learn more about nutrients in food and encourages them to eat more healthily – Thank you.
