*Weight loss results may vary. This is not a guarantee.
Candida’s weight loss journey has been incredible. Since January, she has lost an amazing 6 stone 2 pounds and dropped a phenomenal 5 dress sizes! She has lost 17 and a half inches from her waist alone, and her feet have even shrunk a whole size! Here, she shares details of her New You Plan experience.
Candida, tell us when you started the plan? What was it that finally led you to getting started?
I started the plan half way through January 2015 after seeing a thread on Facebook. My little sister was getting married at the end of March and my chief bridesmaid dress had arrived from America and as hard as I tried, I could not squeeze in to it. Totally disgusted and ashamed of myself, I bit the bullet and ordered a bundle from New You. I had seen all the amazing transformations on the website and was inspired to give it a go.
What were you hoping to achieve from The New You Plan?
To lose weight quickly and safely so that I would fit into my beautiful dress. I wanted my sister to have lovely photos of all of us and I wanted to walk down the aisle feeling confident and fabulous!
How has The New You Plan has changed your life?
I am astounded as to how The New You Plan has changed me as a person; not just physically but how my attitude to food has changed, why I ate like I did and how my confidence has grown over the weeks of being on plan. I have totally re-evaluated my life, made positive changes I never ever thought I would have the courage to do. It may sound a bit daft but I feel as if I have been given a second chance at life and I am going to take it and make it an awesome one. It takes time to remove negativity from your life and to put past fears and losses behind you. New You and Secret Slimmers has given me that strength and inner power to move forward. It may take a little while to get there but it is going well so far.
Is there a particular of piece of clothing that you’ve been dying to wear?
Little tiny sexy pants!
Our customers love the support from Secret Slimmers. Have you got in on the action?
Oh yes! I would not be writing this now if it had not been for Secret Slimmers. The plan is incredible but the group of men and women on Secret Slimmers are extraordinarily amazing people. There is so much help and support on SS, whether you are starting day one or you have been on the plan for a few months! Plus we have a good giggle as well. I have made some incredible friends on there. At the end of the day, we have one goal in common and that is to lose weight, so if we can have a bit of fun whilst doing that, why not!
I hope you’ve found great support in our customer service team?
Tell us, what New You Plan meals and snacks can you not live without?
Oh that is a tricky one as I love all the food but if I really had to choose, it would be the Country Cottage Pie and the Chocolate Velvet Indulgence Mousse oh and not forgetting the Sour Cream and Onion Crisps which are heaven in a silver bag!
Have you tried any of our Water Flavourings? Which is your favourite?
I have tried them all and my favourite is the Heart Warming Vegetable Broth followed closely by the delicious Berry Blast.
Do you have any tips for staying on track? How did you stop yourself blipping?
Always keep a Bar or two in your bag for emergencies. If you are on plan and have a social event such as a wedding, drink your water out of a wine glass or champagne flute. Get involved on the Facebook page. Have little weekly goals and reward yourself, whether that’s a facial or a new pampering product for your bath. If I ever felt like I needed to blip, I kept a photo of myself on the door of the fridge when I was at my heaviest. This soon made me rethink. I also put my bridesmaid dress on the back of my bedroom door to remind me why I was on the plan – to look good, feel good and to have more energy. This in turn I knew would help lead me to a better, healthier, happier life.
We hear all the time about the amount of energy our customers have on the plan. Has this had an impact on your exercise?
Definitely! Now that I am 6 stone lighter I have loads of energy. I run up to three times per week (I never ever thought I would be saying that) and I use my rowing machine a couple of times a week too. I did not exercise much during the plan as I felt it was better to concentrate on losing the weight and that exercise would come naturally when I felt ready.
Tell us about your re-feed journey. How are you keeping that weight off?
I took my time with refeed and I am now following the 5:2 plan, so I have 2 days a week when I have nothing but New You products. I try to eat whole, natural foods which are as unrefined as possible but that is not to say that I don’t have the odd cheeky treat now and again!
I’m sure there are loads of people reading this who just haven’t taken that leap of faith yet. What advice would you give anyone considering starting their New You journey?
Do not hesitate, go for it! Read all the inspirational stories on the website – these people are for real and they have lost phenomenal amounts of weight on The New You Plan. I have never ever been able to follow a diet before that really worked; I might have lost a few pounds but then got bored and demotivated. This diet is quick and safe with incredible support and the most amazing thing I have ever done for myself, plus the added bonus is that I have made incredible new friends for life.
