Gloucestershire-based mother and daughter - Debbie and Gaby Labrum - are celebrating an impressive 13-stone combined weight loss thanks to The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan.
Gaby had previously struggled to stay motivated with her weight loss, often falling back into past bad eating habits. However, Gaby is not alone in this, with many across the UK also admitting to struggling with their weight, with recent research by The 1:1 Diet revealing that the failed attempts have left many with feelings of failure (24%), depression (23%), and hopelessness (21%).
Having found a new motivation for weight loss ahead of her wedding, Gaby reached out to her local consultant, Chloe, who had posted an advert for The 1:1 Diet on Facebook.
Gaby said: “When I saw Chloe's advert in my local Facebook group I thought 'why not, what have I got to lose?’. My friends, family, and colleagues have all been so supportive throughout this entire journey, especially my mum – Debbie – who also decided to go on Plan in preparation for the wedding”.
Debbie said: “I’ve always struggled with my weight, and the goal of Gaby’s wedding day was a big incentive to start on Plan. Having the support of Gaby alongside Chloe also helped to keep me motivated even when I was tempted to stray from the diet.”
Both Gaby and Debbie found the plan straightforward to follow, and soon it felt like second nature in their day-to-day life.
Gaby explains: “The diet was very easy to follow. Chloe explained everything to mum and I ahead of starting and made sure everything was really clear. We were still able to socialise with friends and family as normal and we quickly began to see the weight drop off.”
Since starting on Plan, Gaby has lost an incredible eight stone, going from a size 24 to a size 14. Debbie has had equally great results - losing over five stone and gaining back her confidence, just in time for Gaby’s wedding.
Gaby explains: ‘’Since losing weight I have gained so much confidence in myself, taking on new challenges such as running and long country walks. Being on Plan has taught me so much, I’ve learned that I’m capable of anything if I put my mind to it and I am so excited to show off my weight loss at my wedding later this year.”
