Hi, I'm Gillian!

Find joy in the journey

Before I started this plan I was miserable with the way I looked. Every other area of my life was wonderful. I think this is the main reason I waited so long to change. I’d paper over the cracks, and remind myself how blessed I was in my life. At that point I was raising a young family, and I didn’t make myself a priority. 

“You were someone before you were their mum, and that person matters.”

I remember the very first time I stood on the scales, i was so ashamed of the numbers that flashed up. Those numbers became a starting point in my journey, like a set of personal coordinates to the woman I wanted to become.

My goal was to fit back in my wedding dress after 13yrs, I’d tried so many times over the years on different diets, and I had been unsuccessful every time. I think the reason I wanted to get back in my wedding dress was because it was the happiest day of my life, and it was when I was most confident in my own skin. This time it felt different, as the weeks passed by it started to become a reality. 

June 2018 was the day I stepped back into wedding dress, and it fit like a second skin. I actually cried real tears, as I was so proud that I had achieved my goal. 

This was the reason I became a consultant, to help other overweight people feel that same joy, pride, achievement, and elation as I did when I stood in my wedding dress once again. I wanted them to see that if I could do it, so could they. That they didn’t have to continue to feel miserable, ashamed, or judged. To know that is possible to change your life, your health, and to maintain your weight loss.
Through maintenance I’ve learned tools to help me make good decisions and better food choices. I’ve also learned how to control binge eating.

Helping others achieve their weight loss goals is what keeps me motivated, and it helps me maintain my own target weight. It’s all about feeling confident and happy within yourself, nobody else can give you that feeling, and neither can food.

Consulting is not about the ability to walk in your clients shoes. It’s about the ability to empathise with their journey and move alongside them.

Discipline equals freedom

Height: 5' 3" Time to lose: 4 months Time maintained: 2 years

“I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say because of you I didn’t give up.”

Your client doesn’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

"Gillian is so much more than a 1:1 consultant! She has a pure passion for helping people to feel good about themselves! She’s 100% there for me when I’m motivated and even more so when I’m lacking in belief! She see’s the potential in everyone and gets to know you individually! She’s your biggest cheer leader and I couldn’t do it without her!"

Charlotte Driscoll

"Having struggled with my weight and countless diets over the years, I was inspired when a friend shared Gillian's transformation after following the 1:1 diet a few years ago. I had 6 months left of being in my 30s and decided it was now or never and I contacted Gillian."

"I am so glad I did! She has been an amazing support to me and my biggest cheerleader over the past 6 months and has celebrated with me as I turned 40 nearly 5 stones lighter. Gillian has been there every step of the way - she sends me some motivation or inspiration daily and always replies to my queries, shaky moments and victories! Nothing is ever a hassle for her and I really cannot recommend her enough to anyone who is thinking of giving this diet a try. It has truly changed my life and my outlook on everything. I have more energy, feel more confident and am doing so much more with my daughter than ever before - I can keep up with her now!"

"Thank you Gillian! x"

Claire Traynor

"When I first walked through the door to meet Gillian i felt completely worthless. My first meeting with Gillian I was in nearly two hours. I broke my heart crying and she listened and realised my weight loss journey was not only about weight but about me! She supported me through so much. She was there to help me anytime I needed any information regarding products, or to discuss recipes etc, this was not just about the time she saw me to get weighed. Without Gillian’s genuine love and support I would not have achieved my nearly 5 stone weight loss which has completely changed my life and how I see myself. Gillian is not only a consultant she is a friend."

Sharon Tudhope

" Over the course of the last 5 years I’ve tried almost every diet you can think of. I was lost, thinking I’d never ever find something that worked for me, or that I could stick to. I came across Gillian... I was so inspired by her story, and the story of others she was helping, I had to contact her. I started my journey to becoming the best version of me with Gillian’s help. I lost 3 stones, but most importantly I found me again. Gillian was there every step of the way, every victory along the way, and every struggle. It was an incredible journey, and I am so thankful to Gillian for everything. A year later and the weight is nowhere to be seen. Through Gillian’s  guidance and after support I’ve kept it off. I have complete control of my relationship with food again. There is so much more to weight loss then the food you eat, so much of it is in the mind. Through daily inspiration and support from Gillian, I feel constantly motivated. Thank you x"

What’s the Awards and Achievements panel on Consultant’s webpages?

You might have noticed each Consultant has an awards and achievements panel on their profile. Being a Consultant brings loads of benefits and as they build their business, Consultants achieve awards for their hard work. This might be from superb support to all of their clients to help them hit those weight-loss goals, to helping others in their team build their own successful business. The 1:1 Diet is all about recognising and rewarding these efforts and part of the reward is giving Consultants badges on their webpage, to show you what they’ve achieved.
