Angela Osborne’s life imploded when her partner left her after 14 years and her sister passed away. She’d lost confidence in herself until she found The 1:1 Diet.
Angela, 52, said: “Throughout my life, I’d used food as a cushion to combat any stressful situations. Things came to a head when my partner of 14 years left me and then my sister died because of diabetes complications, aged only 49. I sank into a deep depression and couldn’t stop eating, but knew I had to do something about it.
“It was around the same time that I bumped into a friend at work who was doing The 1:1 Diet and looked amazing. She gave me Josie’s number, and I contacted her straightaway, determined to turn myself around.
“Josie explained about the diet and how it worked. She set out a Plan for me and asked me about my goal weight. I had developed a great rapport with Josie, and she’s now become a firm friend. We both share the same enthusiasm for The 1:1 Diet.
“I had developed health issues including diabetes, a fatty liver and high cholesterol, so I knew I had to put the effort in to shift the weight and achieve my weight loss goal of 10 stone. The weekly weigh-ins with Josie spurred me on and gradually I regained my confidence.
“Josie put me on Step 1b Total Diet Replacement which suited me as I loved the soups, made mousse out of the weight loss shakes and drank a lot of water using the water flavourings.
“I’ve noticed a complete change in myself. I’m far more supple. I can bend down to pick things up from the floor which I couldn’t do before my weight loss transformation. I can even walk up the stairs without being out of breath. I can fit in my car seat perfectly well and don’t need a giant bed to sleep in.
“The health benefits have been amazing. I no longer have diabetes or a fatty liver, and my cholesterol level is now 3.4, a massive change from 7.9.
“The biggest change though is that I have more confidence in myself. I like who I am and I’m far more sociable. I’ve even found love again and met my lovely Spanish partner, Emile.
“Maintaining weight loss is a challenge and you have to be disciplined, but the best tip I can offer is to continue seeing your Consultant. Josie is always there by my side, cheering me on, and is someone who understands the struggles I have been through.
“I am also proud to say that I have become a Consultant too and will always maintain my contact with Josie.
“The future now looks bright, full of love and happiness.
