I started my weight loss mission with Melanie in November 2017 knowing that with Christmas approaching very fast it would be a challenge. I had previously tried every other national weight loss programme with very little success. My weight and general health was at an all time low. Melanie helped me identify short term goals and explained that a diet should be a way of eating for your overall health and well-being. We did not just focus on weight loss but on quality of life issues such as a good night’s sleep and exercise. Melanie helped me focus on nutrition, not calories, and I realised very quickly why other weight loss programmes had not worked for me. I would totally recommend this programme and I am pleased to say that I will be approaching my retirement with a new lease of life.
