Real life weight loss stories: Michelle Davies
Knowing you're fat and admitting it are two different things!
I'd been putting on weight but chose to ignore it, until last April...I looked in the mirror as I got ready - and stood back in horror!
Then, while in Boots, I saw the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Programme - replacement shakes for breakfast, soup or a bar for lunch and a healthy meal for dinner.
I was delighted to lose 8lb in the first week - and I didn't feel hungry at all!
Best of all there's a 24-hour helpline, and, once I'd registered, they'd ring me once a week to see how I was gettng on, and send me positive, encouraging e-mails that really helped to keep me going.
I lost just over 4 1/2st and managed to reach my goal weight in just five months. People say I look 10 years younger...Well, I certainly feel it!
