What prompted you to lose weight?
I have a naturally petite build (size 8 and only 150cm!) and my weight remained pretty stable throughout my 20s. It wasn't until I started having children and quit smoking that the kilos piled on.
By the time I had my second baby in February 2008, I was up to a size 14. I had never been that size before and I didn't like it one bit. I felt completely foreign and uncomfortable in my own body...like I had lost a part of myself. It was then I decided that if I wanted to get me back, I would need to lose the weight.
Why did you choose Weight Watchers Online?
It was the simple fact of not wanting to go to meetings. I am a beauty therapist and run my own mobile beauty business, so I was busy enough. When you add two kids to the mix, time wasn't on my side. I needed something convenient that I could adapt to my changing schedule and Weight Watchers Online
fit the mould perfectly.
Were there any habits you had to change?
The main adjustment was reducing my portion sizes. When I started using the online tools and tracking my food, I was shocked by how much I was eating. Once I started eating smaller meals and more vegetables, I lost weight consistently each week.
How is your life different now?
My biggest ambition was to lose weight and be a size 8 again...and I did it! I feel so much better about myself because I set that goal and achieved it you just can't buy that feeling.
Your final thought?
I had tried to lose weight in the past with Jenny Craig and Herbalife, but this is without a doubt the easiest, most effective weight-loss programme I have ever experienced. I just love it!
