So another delightful week has passed on The 1-1 Diet – Week Two. And I am soo, proud of my results, losing another five pounds and one inch of my bust waist and hips. That’s eight pounds undoubtedly lost in 2 weeks and over 11 inches gone from my body. Of course, the diet is hard! But I am eagerly looking at The 1-1 Diet – Week Two, as a lifestyle change.
This my The 1-1 Diet – Week Two consultant Loren Knight from Billericay, Essex story below.
I undoubtedly have ALWAYS BATTLED with my weight from a young age. I chopped and changed diets for all my teens and early 20’s. I naturally had a social circle of friends who were always in my eyes smaller than me. Looking back, I wasn’t as big as I naturally thought but my mindset towards myself was not in the best place!
In my early 20’s I had my first baby, a beautiful girl, I gained a lot of weight in my pregnancy and then used her hospital stay in intensive care to turn to food for comfort. I gained a lot of weight! I truly lost touch with myself and didn’t recognise the girl in the mirror. My love of fashion disappeared because I couldn’t find any nice clothes to fit my new unwanted size.
Rolling in nearly 2 years with hardly any photos of me and my baby, I had enough of feeling unhealthy, looking older than I was, wearing clothes that didn’t show my personality, crying in the mirror and avoiding social events. A time stands out in my mind. Where I sat in a mirror before a family day.I was attending and physically cutting the clothes off my body because I hated what I saw!
This was a turning point for me where I decided to join CWP. I searched online for a consultant and gained two. They were AMAZING! I did lose weight successfully, not as much as I had planned as I had to stop because I then had baby no.2.
This pregnancy was used as an excuse to eat heartily everything and anything I naturally wanted! I had a baby to feed right? The pregnancy was complicated enough, and the ultimate stress naturally led me to eat more, again for comfort. I ballooned. When my son was born, he too had complications and I have turned to food yet again for comfort. This time I became the biggest I had ever been in my life. In just 4 months I contacted my consultants to join the plan I was determined to lose weight and keep it off this time.
The 1-1 Diet – Week Two
My main reason why was to promptly break the cycle I didn’t want my dear children naturally following the same footsteps as me.I have lost six stones and the rest is history! Losing weight has instantly changed my life in more than one way! I have re-found my love for fashion and take pride in how I looked. My confidence and self-belief have grown so much, and I use my remarkable journey to help others believe in themselves too! I can be the role model to my dear children. Wanting them to understand that healthy eating is easy. Never wanting them to go through what I have been through in my life. As for photos I am now always in them!
Losing weight also allowed me to instantly become a consultant running my own business and giving me the opportunity to get out of a job I disliked. I can use my story to change people’s lives, and that is an amazing feeling for me. Dearly loving what I do, and it is all thanks to, The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan.
