Wythenshawe mum drops two dress sizes thanks to Bodyline

Walking down the aisle a trim size 12, Viki from Wythenshawe felt amazing, confident and beautiful on her wedding day in a stunning silk gown. Soon after, Viki became pregnant with her daughter, now three, and then a little boy the following year. Like most busy Mums, Viki was struggling to find the time to exercise and stick to a healthy diet and before she knew it, she was gaining pounds – not losing them and her weight shot up to 16 stone.

Before

After

Says Viki, “My confidence was at an all time low after having the children and my body disgusted me. I just wanted to feel attractive again and felt trapped in my own body. I had gained over five stone through my pregnancies and subsequent bad eating habits. Despite trying all the usual diets, the weight just wouldn’t move and I just felt like a failure.

“I had noticed that a friend of mine looked amazing after losing several pounds and she told me how she had lost the weight with the help of Bodyline’s Wythenshawe clinic. I decided to give it a try and since then I haven’t looked back! I love the friendly atmosphere and warm welcome that I receive every week, it’s like a home-from-home really. Bodyline has not only given me my body back, it has also given me my confidence. Losing weight feels incredible and I’m over the moon with the results. I feel like me again!

“I couldn’t have done it without the help of the friendly nurses and doctors at Bodyline who have supported me all the way. I have dropped down from a size 18 to a 14 in four months and although I still have some way to go, I know that I can and will reach my target dress size – I would love to be comfortable in a sexy size 12 again!

“Reducing my portion sizes has really helped speed up my weight loss – whereas before I could eat huge portions, I now enjoy three healthy healthy meals with snacks in between. I no longer sit on the sofa and eat large meals late at night, I now just eat a little of what I fancy – it feels good to be in control of my eating habits, rather than food controlling me.”
