Weight Loss: 26 kg
Consultant: Josephine Dermatis
I am a married, 50-year-old female working as a Canberra public servant. I have been overweight for 10 years, even before that I was never at an ideal weight, but over the last 10 years I have found it has really crept on.
Being overweight left me feeling unhappy with myself and unconfident at work which hurt my chances when it came to things like promotions. My family is quite social, and I really disliked going shopping for events to then find myself sitting in the corner of the room because I just always felt uncomfortable!
My doctor had been pressuring me to lose weight for years as I could have headed down the pre-diabetes road. Especially because of my mother’s medical history.
I had tried all the usual weight loss programs and they all never seemed to work long-term. It’s the maintenance and Consultant contact from Cambridge Weight Plan that has made a real difference for me.
My consultant Josephine has been a god send. She has been extremely supportive, not only does she know what the journey is about, but she has consistently been there for me every step of the way. She is always messaging and checking up even in the maintenance stage, which I have found even harder than losing the weight.
Cambridge has turned my whole life around – even with little things like walking quicker and going up and down stairs with ease. I love the wide variety of flavours that Cambridge offers but it’s the rapport you have with your Consultant that can’t be beaten.
My doctor is so pleased with my weight loss and has told me that I am very healthy. I now love catching up with friends and going clothes shopping – especially for social events where I am now up on that dancefloor Greek dancing!
