“I am amazed at the results I have achieved on Kim’s programme and have already recommended to several friends!
I am 48 and I have struggled with my weight since around the age of 15. I am now at the weight I was in my teenage years, feel massively confident about my body and have heaps of energy.
I have spent my entire adult life trying to lose weight through calorie counting, occasionally successfully, most of the time unsuccessfully. I am nearly 5ft 10” (178 cm) and my weight has continually fluctuated between around 76 kilos and 83 kilos. I have always been very active and eaten healthily (or so I thought) but would also eat for emotional reasons and hence my weight would increase.
When I was 28 I managed to hit my target weight of 69 kilos, only to quickly put the weight back on again. I had twins at the age of 36 and gradually over the next few years my weight continued to increase to 89 kilos. I had to do something about this so it was back to calorie counting and I managed, over a period of 7 months and with strict calorie to reach 69 kilos.
I was determined to maintain my weight which I managed to do so for a couple of years. However, my old habits came back and my weight continued to increase, and I tried on several occasions to get back into my “Calorie counting” mode but I continued to struggle with this, always finding that I was hungry and continued to put on a 1kg (2-3 lbs) each year.
In January this year my weight had increased to 80 kg and was determined to do something about it. I just couldn’t face “calorie counting” again. A friend of mine had “liked” Kim Beach and it kept appearing on my facebook, so I was determined to give it a go.
For the first few weeks I followed everything 100% and as I got more familiar with the programme started to adapt and substitute meals on different days. I loved that I could eat 5/6 times a day, it meant I didn’t ever get really hungry. After a couple of weeks, the fat started to melt off my body, and I noticed that my moods evened out, I had heaps of energy and started to feel great. I started to get encouraging comments from family, friends and colleagues so was determined to stick to it.
The support groups were such a key part of my journey, and although I was not an active poster, I eagerly read the comments of others. By the end of the weight loss programme I had lost just over 10 kg and 44 cm from my body. I had just about achieved by target weight but felt that I could still shape up further and had some stubborn areas of fat to lose, so I signed up immediately for Kim’s shred programme. I loved this and started to feel much stronger. I lost another 6 kg during this and a total of 50 cm from my body. By the end of the Shred programme I had even lost the cellulite from my legs!
The other reassuring thing I have noticed since my weight has stabilised is that my skin has started to “catch up” with my weight loss – initially it was a big saggy around my arms in particular but it does seems to have improved. For the first time in my life I now feel that I am in control of the food choices I make – I no longer crave processed or sugary foods. I am now so convinced that the food we eat has such a massive impact on our wellbeing!
