Success stories

    Before I started with LighterLife and cut back on alcohol consumption I was a size 24 , now I’m so proud to say I am a dress size 10*. I’d hardly ever wear dresses before LighterLife, it was always leggings and never anything bright. I’d always think I was on show if I wore colour, and would think people would stare at me even more. LighterLife has really made me experiment with colour and transformed my life, in which I found a love for fashion.

    When I was big, I’d cover my arms with cardigans, even since losing the weight I’m still conscious of them. I still double take in the mirror, as I’m not used to having a small frame.

    I remember walking into a shop and asking a sales assistant what size their jeans went up to, she said a 22 and looked at me if to say “you’ll never fit in them”. Shop assistants never had time for me, but know I’m slim, they can’t help me enough! It’s quite sad in a way.

    Thanks to LighterLife I’ve never felt so comfortable with my figure in my life. I’m ready to say goodbye to black and hello to colour! Now shopping has gone from something I dreaded to my favourite hobby.

    I have multiple joint arthritis and have been slow and not very mobile for a long time. I wanted to regain my feel-good factor. Throughout my LighterLife journey, my confidence, self-esteem and mobility have improved so much. I no longer feel 80 years old and now I get compliments on my appearance! I feel so good about myself. I feel younger, look younger, and move in a younger way – I’m just so much healthier.

    As a result of the group work, the biggest change I’ve made in my life is to recognise that I have choices – if I choose to go back to how I used to eat, I’m going back to joint pain and immobility; by choosing to treat myself differently, and by changing my approach to food, I’m healthy, I feel good and I get to wear nice clothes!

    My top tips to anyone setting off on their LighterLife journey are to stay positive, set short, medium and long-term goals and treat yourself as you achieve them – to a massage, a manicure, a new pair of jeans. My friends have been so inspired by the changes they’ve seen in me that they’re now losing weight themselves!

    My journey with LighterLife has, quite simply, been life-changing. Not only has it completely changed my appearance, it has also changed my relationship with food.

    I started LighterLife in November 2012 and I lost 4 stone*. As the weight started to fall off my confidence began to grow and my energy levels returned to how they were in my late teens. This weight-loss programme has taught me so much about food and about appreciating my body. I am now focused on eating healthy meals and only consume the calorie intake I need to function.

    The group sessions have more than helped me achieve my goals and keep me focused on reaching the so-called ‘non-achievable’ goals. My group was so important and really made the difference on my journey. LighterLife has made me a better person inside and out. It has opened up opportunities and other challenges I would never have considered while I was big. My next challenge will be modelling and perhaps modelling for LighterLife magazine along with other magazines

    To anyone who has tried many diets and failed, my recommendation is to join LighterLife, as it will take you through your own incredible life-changing journey.

    With the help of my Counsellor I was able to address how I linked my eating habits to my emotions, learning techniques to help me keep on top of this. Before I knew it, the weight was falling off. Seeing myself change was amazing and I was able to go shopping with my mum for the first time in my life – my weight had always held me back in the past.

    My weight loss has brought me and my husband closer too, because we can do more activities and spend more time together. We go for long walks and bike rides, and we had a professional photo shoot to celebrate our anniversary – something I wouldn’t have dreamt of doing before I lost weight! He was even asked if he had a new girlfriend as someone from the gym saw us out together and didn’t recognise me…

    It’s taken a while for me to get used to my new image but my confidence is growing every day and I now walk into a room with my head held high, something I never did before I joined LighterLife. Professionally I have so much more confidence when working with clients. And I recently gave blood for the first time in my life; before I joined LighterLife I wasn’t able to do this as I was too overweight.

    Thanks to what I’ve learned with my LighterLife Counsellor and group, I feel I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. It’s given me a new lease of life, and I can’t recommend it enough. If you want to make an incredible change to your life, try LighterLife; after all, what have you got to lose apart from weight?

    LighterLife is different because it’s not just about losing weight, the programme offers so much more. After spending years being unhappy with my body size I joined LighterLife and was shown how to make choices that led to the goal I really had deep down. The empathy I received and the understanding I felt in the groups, that food wasn’t always used to satisfy physical hunger was so reassuring. The LighterLife Programme actually addressed the change in mindset that I needed. I went on to become a LighterLife Counsellor because helping my clients do the same makes this the best job in the world.

    Clients tell me how much they value the group work and what a difference the programme has made to their lives. The programmes have strict boundaries which are important to keep you safe and help you understand what is required, which is vital to your success on the plan.

    I’ve been a LighterLife Counsellor for six years and I’m as passionate now as when I started. You’ll find I’m highly motivated, considerate and understanding. I have a BTEC in running a weight management consultancy and a BSc in Business & Management Studies. I love to work closely with my clients to give them a new and improved way of life, weight has held so many people back and the new body you get with LighterLife is simply liberating.

    As a LighterLife Locum Counsellor I can help you lose weight and become the person you want to be – healthier, more confident and full of vitality.

    My group meetings offer the opportunity to explore how you think and behave around food. This will be a very personal experience and I understand that different people will need different levels of support and encouragement at different times.

    I'll work with you to help you develop the skills you need to deal with stress and tricky situations without turning to food, skills you can use to manage your weight in the long term.

    So, if you'd like to lose weight but need some help staying focused and motivated to succeed, give me a call. You'll be amazed what you can achieve.

    I’ve had problems with my weight since I was 16 and have been on every diet there is. I was first introduced to LighterLife in 1995 and I have been managing my weight since so I truely understand the challenges involved. I liked the LighterLife programme as it was different and fast, and I wasn’t constantly thinking about food! This enabled me to focus on other areas of my life and understand my previous emotional eating.

    If you’re thinking of doing LighterLife just do it and embrace the opportunity for lifetime change. You don’t have to use food to make you feel better, be kind to yourself and know there is always support through the LighterLife groups.

    I had struggled with my weight during my teens and early twenties and by the time I’d had my children I was at my all time heaviest. After seeing a friends huge success with LighterLife I decided to do it too. LighterLife is different because it isn’t just about the weight loss, it gives you the life skills to learn why you overeat and to make permanent changes to maintain a healthy balanced life. It’s because of this that I went on to became a locum for Helen, getting to meet so many amazing people and helping them on their LighterLife journey is what makes my job special.

    Hearing our clients stories is the best part of working with LighterLife, everybody has a different reason for why they’re on this journey and we can all learn so much from other people’s experiences, from healthy recipes and tips for making up packs to fun activities and things to keep you busy (rather than turning to food out of boredom). Comments made by clients in group really hit home and help others to make significant changes in the way they think and their actions.
