How much weight have you lost?

I had lost just under a stone before I started Nutracheck - so 6st and 8lbs92lbs202.8kg in total.

What prompted your decision to lose weight?

My son bought me an XXL t-shirt from Florida and it was so tight - I decided at that point that now is the time.

How did you hear about Nutracheck?

I made the decision to keep a diary of my food intake and googled calories. Nutracheck came up and it's much easier than working it out myself.

Has your weight stayed fairly consistent over the years, or have you always had to manage it?

I have struggled with my weight for years. I was in the habit of yo-yo dieting - losing weight then putting it back on, plus a bit more. It wasn't until I started using Nutracheck that I began to eat better and lose weight. However, it was fairly easy to fit the changes into my lifestyle.

I went from a size 22 to a 12 and down a shoe size

What was the most difficult thing?

Going out to eat - so for the first couple of months I didn't go to any restaurants. I then decided to set my calorie target lower during the week and save calories for the night I was going out.

How do you feel now compared to before?

I'm a lot healthier than before, I used to hate walking anywhere. My husband took me away recently, on a walking holiday, and one of the days we went for a 5 hour walk - which I loved. I would have made excuses before. I have also joined the gym and bought a treadmill - I couldn't have imagined doing either whilst at my heaviest.

Any notable milestones to report?

I went from a size 22 to a 12 and have gone down a shoe size. Last year on holiday I wore my first bikini in my adult life.

What tips would you give to anyone who has weight to lose?

Buy a good set of kitchen scales and bathroom scales. Also write down every single thing you eat or drink.
