Aime, the bubbly 24 year old mum, had been been a slim eight stone for most of her teenage years. She enjoyed her very active job, where she got to know the community well, and always looked forward to her annual holiday to Florida. After having her baby, her weight crept up to thirteen stone in the space of just 18 months. Her body wasn’t used to being active, so she struggled to resist her cravings for sweets and chocolate! With the extra weight, Aime became self-conscious and began to dread the thought of going away to a hot country where she couldn’t cover up. Determined to be a yummy mummy for her holiday, Aime joined Bodyline, and hasn’t looked back since!
“I’ve always felt quite confident in my own skin. Before my first baby, I weighed eight stone and enjoyed a very active job in my local farmhouse tea room. Constantly being on my feet must have done the world of good for me – I could snack on the cakes at lunchtime and not gain a single pound.
“When I stopped working for maternity leave, I was at home with the baby most days and found it hard to resist the cravings for sugary food. I would often sit and eat a whole big bar of chocolate just because I had it in the cupboard! Not moving around as much as I used to combined with my sweet tooth was a recipe for disaster, and before I knew it, I had gained five stone.
“With our annual holiday to Florida booked for the summer, I was dreading the thought of having to cover up more in the heat. I had always felt so comfortable letting a bit of skin show, and looked forward to dressing up while I was away. This year, my weight was making me feel self-conscious, and I couldn’t bear the thought of having to go away. I had tried dieting but couldn’t resist reaching for chocolate when I was out doing a food shop. I was my own worst enemy.
“My dad swore by the Bodyline Clinic, and had been going to the clinic in Crosby for years. It didn’t take much convincing from him – I joined straight away.
“The clinic was extremely welcoming and had a community feel. I was shown in by a very friendly nurse, and instantly felt at ease. She talked me through all the medications, and I was able to ask all the questions I wanted to without feeling daft! I was prescribed Phentermine tablets, and after just one week I lost 12 pounds – I was amazed!
“After the first week’s initial weight loss, it did slow down, but I’ve consistently lost weight every week! The nurses have educated me about having a more balanced diet, and by visiting the clinic often to get weighed, I’m more motivated than ever to keep going until I reach my target weight. I’m back at work on a part-time basis, and the regular customers have started to comment on my weight-loss and about how great it is to have the old Aime back. I couldn’t agree more!
“I’ve still got a little way to go, but I’m sure that I’ll be at my target weight before the summer is here! I’ve already lost three stone in just three months, and instead of dreading going on my holiday, I’m eagerly counting down the days!
“I want as many people to know about Bodyline as possible! It’s easy, it’s quick and it works! Thank you, Bodyline for helping me feel like a yummy mummy again.”
