Here’s her story…
The decision to get fit
In the past, I was a typical ‘yo-yo dieter’ – going at something full pelt, failing to see any changes and then giving up and bingeing. It was a totally unhealthy approach that would result in additional weight gain over the years.
I’d reached a point where I was so unhappy with what I saw in the mirror, which in turn affected my confidence badly. I can’t claim I had a particular ‘Eureka!’ moment but I just reached a situation where I knew that I couldn’t go on like this.RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
As a results-driven person I was attracted to the Fat Shred 1200 Plan as it seemed a safe way to lose weight quickly (fatty tissue only, not water weight or muscle) and it would make me healthier. And crucially, the aim was to avoid the pitfall of just about all diets – putting the weight back on afterwards!
I won’t lie, getting started was hard. I was motivated for the first two days in my usual manner, but it did dip. What made it easier was having the meals set out for me; if I’d had to think about what to cook, I’m not sure I would have done it!
The shopping list sent to me at the beginning of the week was brilliant and meant I had everything to hand. The meals are quick and easy to prepare and tasty, so I didn’t feel like I was missing out.
Seeing a difference and developing a new attitude
Although I didn’t see a huge amount of difference in the first week, by the end of the second week I had dropped 3lbs and my love handles were definitely less prominent!
I was really pleased my efforts were paying off and it just increased my desire to blast through the workouts each day. It also helped that I started receiving positive comments from friends and family.
As someone who works full-time in a high-stress job, I find fitting exercise into my daily routine tough, but I got up 30 minutes earlier each day to do the workouts and although hard, I persevered. By the fourth week, it had become almost a habit and even though I didn’t spring out of bed, I found that my mindset had changed – I just expected to do it rather than feeling like it was a chore.
I had to alter my social life a little bit but it was definitely worth it; going out for dinner was put on the back-burner as I was trying to stick to the meal plans, but sometimes all it took was an extra bit of research to find restaurants that would serve healthier food / smaller portions.
The end game and the future
By the end of the 28 days, I can honestly say I was so pleased with the results. I had dropped half a stone, my stomach looked more defined and my clothes fit me better.
The real result though was the boost to my confidence which was much-needed. The Fat Shred 1200 Plan, although requires commitment (as does any truly worthwhile plan), is both worthwhile and rewarding. Four weeks ago I didn’t think I’d say this but I am really looking forward to trying the Fat Shred Plan 1200 Part 2!
