I have been overweight for most of my adult life and I always said I wasn't bothered about it but looking back now I think that deep down I was. I battled with depression and social anxiety and lacked self-esteem and I used my weight as an excuse for all my problems. I used food to comfort me. It was my treat, my reward or my consolation prize. I was definitely someone who lived to eat rather than somebody who ate to live. My GP told me I had Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure which were both caused by being overweight I knew that I had to do something.
I knew of other diets which involved counting points or weighing foods but to be honest, that was too much effort for me. I didn't want to eat a whole load of salads or one treat a day. In fact the idea of diet food shopping was a little frightening especially since my husband could buy whatever he wanted. So I started to look online for information on diets that deliver all your food to your house but many of them required you to actually add your own vegetables and fruit so that wasn't going to work for me. I came across Exante Diet and I read about their Total Solution diet plan. Total Solution is Exante's VLCD (very low calorie diet) plan and it was just what I was looking for no shopping, no counting, no fuss, no starving myself, I didn't even feel hungry. I started with just the shakes and I lost a stone the first month. I felt great, I couldn't believe it, I actually began to believe that this could work so the next month I got shakes and bars so as to give me a little more control and options back and again I had the same great result. I could begin to feel my clothes getting loose which was a first for me but I didn't want to buy anything new yet as I wanted to wait as I knew I still had more weight to lose so I went shoe shopping. There was a sale on knee high boots which I love but have never been able to get because my calves have always been too big but not anymore! I was thrilled to buy my first pair of knee high boots. The next two months I got the winter packs which gave me more options and helped me to start to eat more normally with my husband at meal times.
I joined my local gym and started going to Pilates and Yoga twice a week. I never would have had the confidence to do anything like that before Exante. In total I have lost 3st6 but more importantly than that my diabetes medication has been reduced and I no longer have High Blood Pressure. I also just feel so much happier and better about myself, I no longer feel so self-conscious. As a result of this I am less depressed and socially anxious and I am able to go out with friends and family more and hopefully will be able to go on to learn to drive and go back to university. I no longer have my weight to hide behind or to blame or use as an excuse so there is now nothing stopping me getting on with the life I am meant to live. Thank you Exante!
