Helen from Mullingar shares her experience with us and she tells us in her own words:
I had tried other slimming groups and although I did lose weight it always went back on. This was very different to anything I did before because it focussed on healthy eating. There were no gimmicks and I looked at better food choices to fuel my body and also looked at portion size and calorie control. I also addressed my bad habits and tried to improve them and put thought into my food choices. Once I focussed on mindful eating I felt I had choices and after the first week I never felt deprived or hungry
I did the initial consultation with Caroline and it was a very pleasant experience. Caroline was very friendly and very positive. I knew after the first meeting I would return and that I would like working with Caroline. My weight, BMI and waist measurement were taken and also a body analysis was done which gave a reading for visceral fat, body fat and muscle. We discussed my daily routine and then Caroline went through a plan for each meal with examples from the different food groups. I then had six follow up visits where I was weighed and each half hour visit focussed on a different topic such as food labels, healthy snacks and eating out. The previous week was also discussed and any challenges were addressed and positives acknowledged.
I was delighted with the progress I made while attending the clinic and with education and motivation I felt that I could achieve my weight loss goal. Even over the Christmas period I managed to maintain my weight. I planned to lose 12 pounds so that my BMI would be in the healthy range and I succeeded in achieving a weight loss of 16 pounds which I was delighted with.
I have maintained my weight loss and I am confident that I will continue to do so. I have the option of checking in with Caroline in Whelehans each month for continued monitoring which is an excellent back up to have. I would definitely recommend the service Caroline provides and some of my friends now attend the clinic because of my recommendation.
