Bride-to-be Aby Dingle feared she wouldn’t be able to walk down the aisle. Now, having lost an impressive six and a half stone, she has celebrated her dream wedding, and has gone on to inspire others on their journey to self-confidence, as a Consultant for The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan.
“I’d been a yo-yo dieter for many years and always struggled with losing weight, but also maintaining it. The ease and support available really attracted me to The 1:1 Diet - knowing exactly what I needed to eat with a personalised weight loss plan, and having a dedicated support system in place through my own personal Consultant to encourage me along the way.
“I also suffered with degenerative disc disease, which initially left me bedbound, and had many physical and personal setbacks including losing my job.
“I’d lost all self-confidence, and decided it was time to do something to tackle my weight. That’s when I discovered The 1:1 Diet.
“I couldn’t believe how quickly I saw the results.
“I lost eight pounds and found my dream wedding dress all in the same week – a task that would have filled me with dread before. I had so much fun looking and trying on different dresses, it was like how everyone said it would be.
“My Consultant played a major role in my journey, helping me keep on track and achieve my wedding diet goal. Seeing the weight drop off was incredibly encouraging, but more than that, I was finally starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. I also had regular appointments with a specialist who gave me the medical support I needed to get my health back on track and improve my pain management.
“After just ten weeks on Plan, I had lost more than three stone. My wedding dress was altered from a size 22 to a size 16 - I was absolutely ecstatic!
“It wasn’t just my weight which had benefited, I was able to walk confidently down the aisle and enjoy my first dance with my new husband Chris with everyone watching and pain free – something I never envisaged.
“I would always worry about not enjoying my wedding day, feeling self-conscious at people looking at me and my dress, but I felt like a new woman.
“As my own Consultant had been so influential in my journey, I was keen to be able to support and inspire others who were looking to make a lifestyle change.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to see others regain their confidence and reach their targets and I’m thrilled I made the decision to become a part-time Consultant. It also helps me to maintain my own weight loss, something which had been important for me when selecting my diet.”
