Customer interview

Trying on dresses before her wedding day, Sara felt miserable, during what should be a happy time. As she reached for plus size dresses she knew she had to do something about it. After finding The New You Plan, she has lost an amazing 3 stone in only 11 weeks and can’t wait for her wedding. In her New You Plan customer interview, Sara reveals how she did it and why she thinks this plan has worked, when all others failed. Watch her video below where she discusses her journey and read her interview in full below.

Customer interview

Sara, tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a single mum to Natasha (aged 26 and living in London) and Jake (aged 14 and in year 9). When Jake was a baby I experienced domestic abuse and spent time with my children in a Women’s Refuge. As a result of that abuse, I am divorced from Jake’s father. For the past 11 years, I’ve been working as a Borough Councillor. I recently lost the election to Hertfordshire County Council where I had also been a Councillor for 8 years so I am now looking for a job.

I’m engaged to David and we are getting married in Manchester (where David is from) on 27th July.

As part of my job, I have to attend events and evening meetings but I lead a pretty quiet life. I have a few really good friends and David and I are starting to build a circle of friends through his sporting activities. I think I found it very hard to trust people after my experiences and learned the hard way what real friendship means.

What do you think led to your weight gain?

Putting on weight with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is very easy. I don’t have to do much to gain weight and I definitely ate too many carbs and chocolate. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to keep off any weight I’ve lost in the past.

Customer interview

How did you feel before you started the plan?

I felt dreadful. I was getting married and having to look at plus size dresses knowing I would feel fat and ugly on my wedding day. At a time when I should have been feeling over the moon, I felt extremely low.

Customer interview

When did you make the decision to take control of your weight?

I realised that if I didn’t do something I would ruin one of the happiest days of my life and not just for me.

How did you hear about The New You Plan?

I have a friend who lives in Dublin and I saw she had liked the plan on Facebook. Seeing this, I went onto the website and kept going back to look at all the success stories. I felt this plan was something I could do and the support after you have reached your goal looked excellent. I’ve lost weight in the past but I’ve never been able to maintain it and I wanted something that was going to work, once and for all.

Tell us about your journey to a New You

I decided on Total Food Replacement (TFR) with just the occasional Family Focus meal. I wanted to lose as much weight as possible before my wedding and I’m delighted to say I’ve done just that! In only 11 weeks I have lost 2 stone 13lbs*. I was wearing size 18-20 before and I’m now a size 14, although my clothes are already becoming looser.

How has the support from The New You team helped you?

The support is phenomenal! The team are always on hand to answer any questions, no matter what they may be. They truly want everyone to succeed and they’re so passionate about what they do. I’ve never come across anything quite like it.

Customer interview

Which meals are your favourite?

I LOVE the Pancakes as they taste and look exactly like regular pancakes. I also love Spicy Noodle Nosh and in fact, I even eat it when not on plan. The Bars are all delicious as are the Shakes.

On a typical day, I don’t usually eat until at least lunchtime. I tend to have a Bar for lunch (Lemon is my favourite), a double Meal in the evening such as double Noodle Nosh, Chilli and Omelette and either a Chocolate Brownie, another Bar or a hot Shake for pudding. The Snacks are all awesome. I love the Wafers, especially the Raspberry and the Apple and Cinnamon Biscuits feel like a blip.

Customer interview

Would you recommend joining Secret Slimmers?

100% yes! The people on Secret Slimmers are so kind and supportive. The page offers so much love and kindness and is a celebration of everyone’s journey. Seeing what others have achieved is so helpful and really spurs you on. The lovely people on Secret Slimmers have boosted my self esteem.

I also recommend taking part in the challenges. I did and they kept me on track and made me want to achieve more.

Customer interview

How do you feel since losing weight?

At just over halfway to achieving my goal, I already feel amazing. I am much happier, I enjoy getting dressed now, I do more and I don’t mind having my photo taken.

Customer interview

Tell us about the nicest compliment you’ve received since losing weight

A woman was talking about feeling fat and told me I wouldn’t know how that felt! Of course, I told her about The New You Plan and what it has done for me.

Good luck on your journey to a new you! It worked for me and I have no doubt that it will do the same for you!
