“Last year I turned 70 and celebrated my 50th wedding anniversary. What should have been a great year it ended up being not so good, with lockdown and everything then my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 mouth cancer and was very ill and had to have a major operation .
I, myself became ill I suffered from breathing problems and was told I had Asthma and was also pre diabetic. I was so low and depressed I knew I had to do something with myself, I was so overweight which was not helping .I was 15stone 1lb .I have been on every diet under the sun and always lost but put it all back on again.
On august this year I went on holiday with my husband and two grandchildren. I was so overweight and out of breath I felt so low and new then I need to do something. When I came home I looked up for some TFR diets they were all so expensive and thought I cant afford them then I came across New You and there was a two weeks starter pack I thought give it a go..
When the pack came The first week I lost 12lb!
My nephew was getting married in 12weeks so I thought I might lose some for it. I was really surprised as the food packs were great and I loved the shakes and soups. After that first week I kept losing weight constantly and never cheated at all.
I now have lost just off of three and a half stone. My 12 weeks are now up and I am trying refeed.
I feel so alive and confident and healthy I have even came off my inhaler and I am now not pre diabetic that is the reason I entered the challenge to let other people know how great this diet is and also the support you get on secret slimmer’s is fantastic.
My biggest aim was to lose weight for this wedding and I did it and managed to get into the outfit I wore to my sons wedding 18 years ago. Also my sister is getting better and stronger day by day it is a long struggle but she is getting there .So if anyone wants to feel better look better and have more confident sign up to New You plan and join secret slimmer’s face book. So thanks once again to New You.”
Fay remained strong and stuck to Plan for the full 12 weeks and managed to lose an amazing (nearly) 3 and a half stone.
The fact that Fay is no longer pre-diabetic and has come off her inhaler just shows how much her health has improved and we’re so happy for her.
