I’ve been overweight since I was a child, as a teenager and more recently as a young adult. I’ve never been very confident, so I tried avoiding social situations.

Being overweight has affected me mentally, socially and emotionally, impacting both my work and school life. I was always depressed and as a result I didn’t think I was good enough to accomplish anything. In the past, I’ve tried appetite suppressants, and doctors have recommended different pills. My mum even signed me up to the gym with a personal trainer for 6 months. But all these methods failed. Health wise, I had a high risk of diabetes, high cholesterol and I had breathing difficulties at night.

I tried Cambridge Weight Plan as a recommendation from my Brother in Law, because my health and weight were getting out of control. He had success on the plan and gave me Nicole’s number. It was convenient with the shakes and bars easily fitting into my daily life. Having my Consultant Nicole check up on me daily with encouraging quotes kept me on track and knowing I had a weekly weigh in with her, made me more accountable. I have recently visited my family doctor who I saw 2 weeks before commencing Cambridge. At the time I was 155 kilos and he was going to refer me to specialists. However, when I went back to him just 2 weeks ago (weighing in at 104 kilos) he was shocked with the results of my blood test. There was no trace of diabetes, my cholesterol level went back to normal and I’m now getting a good night’s sleep.

Cambridge Weight Plan suits every lifestyle and it has helped me make the right food choices to maintain my weight. The one on one support of my consultant Nicole has changed my life for the better. I feel confident and happy. Cambridge Weight Plan really did transform my life.
