WANT to lose weight fast? Find how how this woman transformed her life by dropping 6 stone.
At her heaviest, Diana Mais tipped the scales at a whopping 17st 2lbs and wore a UK size 22.
Before she began her weight loss journey, the 56-year-old suffered with knee pains, backache and struggled to fit into any clothes.
Then she decided to transform her life and started following the LighterLife Total Plan.
In the space of a few months, Diana lost a staggering 6st 5lbs, dropping to a UK size 12.
“I’d been contemplating starting LighterLife for some time”
She said: “I’d been contemplating starting LighterLife for some time, but for some reason I had never been in the right frame of mind to do it.
“For many, the Christmas period is all about gorging on anything and everything, but for me it ended up being the opposite.
“By December 25 I was so sick of how I looked and felt, that I’d had enough. I wrote myself an action plan, mentally prepared myself to begin in January.
“When the time arrived, I was ready to start, I practically ran to my LigherLife group.”
Diana – who has recently become a LighterLife mentor – chose from a range of tasty meals, bars and snacks.
LighterLife offers a choice of nutritious plans for fast weight loss and weekly groups to help people to understand more about their relationships with food.
She added: “When I started LigherLife, I was recommended to begin with the Total Plan to lose up to a stone each month.
“On the plan I chose four products to have each day and I was instantly so impressed with the variety on offer.
“I thought I would have given up food that tasted good but that wasn’t the case – I used to look forward to having the LighterLife porridge for breakfast every morning.
“I stuck to the food packs and I lost an impressive 9lb in my first week. The rate of weight loss is so motivating and keeps you focused on your end goal.”
Diana opened up about the help her counsellor Debbie offered her and the weekly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) activities.
“Not only is my LighterLife group supportive, but it’s thought provoking too,” Diana continued.
“I’ve realised that I’ve been putting my needs last for years which had sabotaged my weight loss success.”
She revealed: “I’ve now been given the tools to no longer do that to myself.”
Since her weight loss, Diana no longer feels self-conscious and embarrassed about her size.
As well as her transformation, her energy levels have also increased.
Diana said: “This will be my first Christmas slim in eight years. I feel confident and excited about the here and now, as well as the future.
“With my management plan in place, I have the tools to keep my weight in check.”
