Rachael Smith

Weight loss: 24.9 kg
Consultant: Holly Leiper
State/Territory: NSW

I live in Sydney with my husband and two sons. I am 45 years old and have my own Interior Styling and Event Planning Business.

I have ‘yo-yo’ dieted for most of my adult life. A pattern of losing 20kgs, gaining 25kgs, losing 25kgs and again gaining 30 kgs was common for me. I avoided going out, going to the beach or any event where I would need to search for nice clothes to fit and show my body. I’ve tried many different weight loss methods and diets. You name it and I have tried it only to lose weight and then put it back on again.

My friend started Cambridge and I saw the weight falling off her. I knew as I headed towards 50 I needed to do this for my health. I faced the fact I was classed as morbidly obese and decided I would turn my health around forever.

I suffered anxiety and depression for the last 7 years and was taking antidepressants to control it.

I started Cambridge Weight Plan and had an amazing consultant Holly who really made me believe I could do this and let me tell you, there were times I didn’t believe I could, but she got me over the line.

Being overweight definitely contributed to my anxiety and depression.  I have now come off antidepressants and feel so much more positive about life, my health and myself.
Since losing weight I have enjoyed my social life and generally feel more confident. With the support of my consultant Holly I have now decided to become a Cambridge Weight Plan consultant myself.

I have had 5 friends join Cambridge Weight Plan after seeing my transformation and they are either now at their goal or fast approaching it. I believe strongly that Cambridge Weight Plan really does change lives for the better!
