WINNER: Ewa Lost 2st 12lbs & WON £1000 Cash
Ewa took her “I am in” photo but didn’t really plan on entering our Transformation Challenge. However, when she saw her progress and what she had achieved, she thought, “why not?” Ewa started the plan after reading other people’s success stories, and now has become an inspiration herself. She lost 2st 12lbs, reached her goal weight and won £1000 cash. Here is her story…
New You: What was your biggest motivator for joining the challenge?
Ewa: After starting the plan, I took photos but didn’t post them anywhere. It wasn’t until I started looking through old photos that I realised how much I’d changed. I don’t recognise the person in the pictures in January – I am a new person now. I asked my husband to take my “I did it” photo and when I saw it beside my “I am in” photo I really saw the difference. I still wasn’t sure about sending it. I’m usually the quietest one in a group and I just wasn’t sure about putting it out there. But then I knew I was ready to write about it so I sent the email!
New You: So tell us, how much weight have you lost?
Ewa: I’ve lost 2st 12lbs. I started at 12st 6.5lbs and I’m now I am now 9st 7.5lbs. The first time I really noticed that I’d lost weight was when we were going to a family wedding. I was wearing the red dress from my “I did it” photos and when I came out and my husband saw me, he started crying. He just looked at me and said “My God, you are a different person.” I jumped on the scales and couldn’t believe it when I saw how much I’d lost. 10st was my goal and I’d done it! I went to the wedding feeling amazing!
New You: We’d love to know how you heard about the plan!
Ewa: Well, I was just scrolling through Facebook and it popped it. I clicked it and read other people’s transformation stories. It was just after I’d looked through my Christmas photos and saw the size I was. When I saw what other people had achieved on the plan, I knew I wanted to do it too.
I’d never heard of a Total Food Replacement diet before so I didn’t know anything about it. But I knew I had to try it because I’d tried other diets like Slimming World, Weight Watchers etc in the past and they hadn’t worked for me. So that’s what pushed me to it. I was determined to try something else.
And also, when I was looking at the pictures of the food, everything looked amazing and not at all like diet food.
New You: What led to you starting the plan?
Ewa: I was so miserable. I was going through photos in January, after New Year. Everyone was posting all their lovely Christmas photos and when I looked at mine, I just felt so big. I was literally gob smacked. I told all my family and friends not to post any photos of me on social media because I was so ashamed. I sat and asked myself how I’d let that happen. I knew I couldn’t blame COVID anymore. I’d run out of excuses. I knew I had to do something about it so I placed my first order and told myself that this was my year!
New You: And tell us about that first week…
Ewa: The first two days were fine. I think the newness of it and the adrenaline kept me going. On days 3-5 the hunger kicked in. Because the evenings were dark earlier, I just went to bed or had my warm cup of coffee or tea and slept through it. The second week was completely different. When I stepped on the scales and saw I had lost 9.5lbs in the first week, I kept stepping on and off to check that it was right. I even changed the battery at one point. Seeing that big loss really pushed me to stick with it.
New You: Was there anything you found motivated you to stay on track?
Ewa: My own results – I think it was that I knew things were changing – body and mindset. I didn’t feel like I was missing out – I was still going out for family celebrations. You just need to change how you do things.
Life changing results…
New You: What difference has the plan made to your life?
Ewa: I sleep so much better now. I used to suffer from a lot from back pain because I had a bulky disc. I also had pain in my feet, so I had to wear special runners. All of the pain has gone now. I’ve even started to run, and I couldn’t run to save my life before. I couldn’t run to the top of the street without being breathless.
New You: What’s the nicest compliment that you’ve received from anyone so far?
Ewa: When I was looking at other people’s transformation photos, I felt so jealous because they had already achieved what I wanted. But a few weeks later, I saw my sister for the first time since I started the plan. I’d lost about 1.5st at this stage and she couldn’t believe how much I’d changed. She was actually jealous of me. My husband laughed once when he was hugging me because he was nearly slapping himself because I was so much smaller. I’ve received so many lovely compliments. People are always dying to know how I did it so I always tell them about New You.
New You: What is your go-to meal?
Ewa: It has to be the Mexican Tacos. I could eat those everyday. And I love that you can smell them anywhere in the house when you make them. My husband and kids are always asking me to make them for them and I have to tell them no because they’re all mine!!
New You: What are you top tips for anyone thinking of starting the plan?
Ewa: To be strong, to believe, definitely to be positive and obviously nothing comes easy, so it will be hard at times, but just believe in yourself. This plan is amazing. It works – 100%.
New You: Finally, what’s next?
Ewa: Just to stay healthy and positive and stick to the plan. I’m changing to New You Switch now to maintain my loss and work on my mindset. New You brought me back to happiness, I have to say.
