After gaining weight caused by an underactive thyroid, Janine is winning the battle against the health condition that was causing her to feel miserable and exhausted and has lost three stone since starting with Bodyline in February.
“My health problems were really starting to get me down – my hypothyroidism was making it impossible for me to lose any weight despite trying really hard to watch my diet. My weight had crept up to over 13 stone and before long I was a size 16. I lost my confidence because I felt so overweight and the excess pounds were putting pressure on my knees so I was in pain each day. I didn’t want to go out and meet people and it was hard to find the energy to get out of bed every day, let alone exercise.
“The turning point me came earlier this year when I joined Bodyline and finally found a weight loss programme that works for me. Since then, I have lost three stone, slimmed to a size 12 dress size and gained tons of confidence that I never thought I’d find again. My health has improved so much – I’ve loads of energy and which has spurred me to take on a voluntary role at a local farm which I love.
“I am much more careful planning meals these days and keep a close eye on the saturated fat within my daily diet. Rather than heading to the chippy for tea, I’ll choose low fat oven chips and I’ll make poached eggs instead of fried. Exercise is part of my lifestyle now that my knee problems have improved – I’m always on the wii and if I don’t have much time, I just run up and down stairs a few times!
“The Bodyline weight loss programme has made a huge difference to my life and I look forward to my Saturday trips to the clinic where I always get a huge boost for the week ahead.”
