New You Plan weight loss

*Weight loss results may vary and are different for each individual.

Feeling “Sluggish, fat and frumpy” at the age of just 28, Debbie Fairgrieve knew she couldn’t go on any longer. Having tried every diet under the sun, including two failed gastric band surgeries, Debbie lost 91lbs* before she hit a stand-still. Determined to reach her target, and finally be able to ride her horse without feeling guilty, she needed something for that final push. Thankfully she found The New You Plan, which definitely did the trick. Having lost a total of 148lbs*, 57lbs* of which was with New You, she shares the very real reasons why she needed to lose weight.

These are her words…

“I can remember the moment when I knew I had to do something about my weight. My ex had just left me in April and I felt at my lowest point and thought it was because of how I looked. I wallowed in self-pity and food for about 5 months and decided enough was enough. It was three months before Christmas and I was now a fully-fledged taxi driver. I didn’t want people seeing me look like that so I made the decision to do something about it.

The reason I was that size is because I am addicted to food, plain and simple! I love good, tasty food and a little is never enough. I am also an emotional eater. When I was happy/ sad/ frustrated/angry, food is and probably always will be my crutch but with New You I can get it under control when it gets out of hand.

When I started New You I was 15 stone 7lbs. I was a size 20 and feeling sluggish, fat and frumpy. Although I had already lost weight, I needed to get past this final hurdle. At the age of just 28 I knew I had to do something about it.

Thankfully, an advertisement for New You popped up on Facebook. I had completed other Total Food Replacement Diets before but I liked the sound of the meals with this one, as the other diets I’d tried were just bars and shakes. I opted for Fast Focus (Total Food Replacement) as any hint of being able to eat normal food would send me off the rails. If I had stuck to the diet religiously then I would have lost that 4 stone within about 4 months but it has taken me almost a year as life happens and sometimes there’s no way to avoid it. I started the plan as a size 20 and I’m now a size 14 – that’s three dress sizes gone for good, and I’m inching even closer to my ultimate goal.

What I love about New You was the support in Secret Slimmers. It’s been invaluable for me. The support and encouragement of everyone within the group is amazing. It’s the perfect pick-me-up when you need it most. Seeing everyone’s results is the perfect motivation for believing that you can actually do this. Oh, and the food too! The selection is amazing! The Maple Syrup Pancakes are awesome for something chewable, I love the Vegetable Chilli and Spicy Noodle Nosh with extra chilli powder to curb my craving for spicy food, while the Cottage Pie is great when you need something comforting. There are various others I like too just for the simple fact that they actually taste good!

A day on the plan for me is as follows; lunch around 12.00pm would be Spicy Noodle Nosh, Cottage Pie or Vegetable Chilli followed by half a Bar. Tea around 4.00pm usually consists of double Cottage Pie and Chilli or Omelette and Chilli followed by another half a bar. And my final meal would be around 7.00pm, which could be pancakes or more of one of the hot Meals. I haven’t tried the Burgers or Brownies yet but I’ll definitely be adding them to my next order as well as the new Crisps.

Currently, I weigh 11 stone 6lbs and feel amazing. I actually wore a bikini on holiday for the first time ever 3 weeks ago…although my body is not perfect I felt so confident. I have another 10 – 14 lbs to lose but thankfully, I have found the perfect diet to finally get to my goal!

Life at the minute is pretty amazing. My biggest accomplishment to date is that I can now ride my horse without feeling guilty that I am too heavy for him. I also met an amazing man in February and we are now engaged and planning the rest of our lives together. It makes me laugh now when people don’t recognise me anymore. To date, the best compliment I received was: “You are not Debbie Fairgrieve…you look amazing!”

For anyone currently on plan, my advice would be to not be disheartened if you fall of plan. All you have to do is take a detour and get back on. Keep plugging away…every pound lost is a step closer to your end goal. Do not beat yourself up if you fall off the waggon. And for anyone thinking about giving the plan a go, I’d definitely recommend giving it a try. I know you’ll be amazed at the results.

Losing 57lbs* with The New You Plan has changed my life. I did it, and I know you can too!”
