After about a year I started “stacking on the pounds” and averaged about 80 kilos. I had a tough childhood because of my weight and low self-esteem and no matter how many people tried to tell me different I still didn’t believe in myself.
A couple of years ago I made the move from New Zealand to Brisbane with my boyfriend. When I got there everyone told me that I would lose heaps of weight because “you just sweat it off” in the heat.
After about 6 months in Brisbane I decided to weigh myself, but I was extremely upset to find that I had reached 90 kilos (my heaviest ever). I had tried many diets before but I had only ever lasted a couple of days due to hunger cravings. I had finally hit a point of breakdown. That night I lay in my bed crying and crying. I felt jealous of people who had eating disorders, even though I hated myself for thinking that. It just seemed like an easier option.
I didn’t have enough money to get surgery so I thought I just have to try another diet and see how long I could last this time. Starting with Celebrity Slim was really fun. On the first day I read through the book to see what it was all about. I absolutely loved the taste of the shakes (way better than the other meal replacements I’ve tried). I became a member on the website and was amazed at how many people Celebrity Slim has helped.
The first week doing Celebrity Slim was hard but I got through and seeing the results were amazing. For the first time in years I felt proud of myself. From then on I found it a lot easier to continue with the shakes; although there were plenty of times where I fell of the wagon and I just got right back up there.
My life now http://slim.idoname.org/ is great – I feel so much healthier and a thousand times more confident. Thanks to Celebrity Slim I have lost 18 kilos and I look great. I finally feel happy about myself and I’m very proud to have achieved this.
Now I have learnt the art of self love and put myself and my feelings right up there at number 1. Looking towards the future seems so open to me now. There are so many things that I can do out there, the hard part is deciding which one is best!
