Dionne quit smoking four years ago with the hopes to improve her health and lifestyle. Her cravings for cigarettes soon stopped, but they were quickly taken over by cravings for junk food and takeaways! Before she knew it, Dionne had gone from a slim size 8 to a size 16, and her self-confidence was gone with it. 12 weeks on, Dionne is back down to a size 12, and is finally starting to regain her confidence!
“I’ve always been an active person and maintained a slim size 8 figure for most of my adult life. With two young children, now aged seven and thirteen, I decided to quit smoking four years ago so that I could live a happier and healthier life. My cravings for cigarettes soon passed, but they were replaced by cravings for unhealthy junk food and takeaways. Four years on, I was a size 16 and all my self-confidence had gone. I desperately wanted to lose the weight, but I couldn’t stop myself from reaching for the phone and calling up for takeaways! I joined the gym, but I just felt so intimidated being there. I felt fat and ashamed and I just wanted to go home and cover up my body.
“My husband’s friend had been to Bodyline and had lost a lot of weight, and seeing my desperation, he suggested that I gave it a go. I nervously booked in for my consultation at the Birkenhead clinic with nothing else to lose.
“The nurse was so kind and helpful, and talked me through each of the treatment options that were available. I was prescribed Diethylpropion, and went home excited to see if they would work. In just one week I had lost six pounds!
“Now, just 12 weeks on, I’m back down to a healthy size 12 and my confidence is starting to return! I’m more aware of what I put into my body. I drink much more water and the tablets have helped to control my appetite so that I don’t constantly feel hungry anymore. When my family sits down in the evening with a takeaway, I no longer gorge myself full like I used to, and feel quite happy eating a smaller amount! I only have a little way to go until I’m back down to my target weight, and I can’t believe how quickly I’ve got here.
“I can’t wait to go into my thirties feeling fabulous again!”
