I’ve struggled with my weight in the past, however, my main problem started in 2011 when I married, I became content and my weight ballooned! I had no energy, I didn’t have the confidence to socialise due to my size and I became so overweight that I developed health issues.
In December 2015, I realised just how unhealthy my lifestyle had become and decided to make a change. I had tried a couple of diets but found them difficult to stick to, especially if I wanted to eat out on the odd occasion or once I stopped dieting the weight would just creep back on. Within my 1st week at NSC Clinics I knew this was the programme for me. For once the weight was coming off consistently each week, which felt great! The hardest part for me throughout any diet is having to cut out luxuries like chocolate. The great thing about National Slimming and Cosmetic Clinics is I could still have these luxuries, when needed, and not pay for it on the scales the following week.

Since joining NSC Clinics I’ve become more aware of what I eat and how to control my portion sizes. I also make sure I log everything I eat on a day to day basis which, I feel, is an important part of maintaining my weight loss.
Now that I’ve lost the weight I have more energy, more confidence, a better social life and my previous health issues have disappeared! Throughout my weight loss I developed a love for running, progressing through a 15 week 0 – 10k running programme. Within 10 months of joining National Slimming and Cosmetic Clinics I had lost 4 stone and had entered into my first 10k charity running competition.

This weight loss programme has truly been life changing for me. The encouragement and support received from the Newcastle clinic was outstanding, thank you for helping me reach my goal!
