Finalist, Slimmer of the Year 2018
Weight Loss: 40kg
Consultant: Nicole Gandy
At the end of 2017 I was the heaviest that I had ever been. I was 41 years old and was happy in every aspect of my life but my weight.
In my early to mid-30’s I went through a number of personal tragedies which led to an unhealthy lifestyle. Every other weekend, my wife and I were out drinking and eating unhealthily. I was not exercising and it all caught up with me. The weight was affecting my energy levels and I often found myself fatigued even though I wasn’t exercising. At that time, I started to notice that I was having to buy larger clothes and none of the clothes I really wanted to wear, would fit. My blood pressure got to the point where my doctor had to put me on medication and the additional weight I was carrying was putting a strain on my back and my joints.
Throughout the years I’ve tried many other diets. I lost some weight with other companies but found that the consultants were more interested in moving people through the system than providing tailored advice. I lost 20 kilos on another program but was unable to maintain it. I found that introducing foods back into my diet only led to more weight being put back on.
Cambridge has given me a new lease on life, after 17 weeks I am stronger and healthier than I’ve ever been. I am no longer on blood pressure medication and my doctor hardly recognises me. My consultant Nicole has helped me make the sustainable transformation that no other weight loss product could. With Cambridge it’s not just about scale weight and numbers, it’s about learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understanding what balance is. There are no complicated points systems, no frozen foods to reheat and Nicole is available for advice at any time…not just during standard office hours!”
