Anne Matley is celebrating a life-changing four stone weight loss with The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan, after images from her brother’s wedding left her horrified.
Anne, 56, said: “My brother got married at the beginning of the first lockdown and I’d bought a lovely outfit for the occasion. It wasn’t until I saw the wedding photos that I realised how much weight I’d put on – I didn’t even look like me.
“I’d been invited to two more weddings set for April and July, but they were both postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so I knew I had time to lose weight before the next big occasion.
“Throughout lockdown, I made it my mission to lose the pounds. I’d taken an early retirement from work due to stress, and I tried so hard to lose weight over the summer, but nothing worked. Family stresses and life admin kept getting in the way.
“During Christmas 2020, I hated the way I looked – I’d gained so much weight and my knees were starting to really hurt under the pressure of my weight gain. I’d got to 14st 4lbs! I also started to worry about how I’d look in the upcoming 2021 wedding pictures.
“In January 2021, I made it my New Year’s resolution to become the woman I deserved to be! My friend had tried The 1:1 Diet and it worked so well for her. I decided to reach out to my local Consultant - it was the best decision I ever made!
“Fast forward to May and I not only look like a different person but feel like one too. I’ve never felt so confident or happy in my own body – I owe it all to my amazing Consultant. I am determined to never go back to the mentally stressed, unhappy, unhealthy person that I used to be. I like this new confident and healthy version of me!”
