Hi, I'm Melanie!

If you’re reading my bio, you have or probably are where I used to be…..

I gained over 5 stone through my second pregnancy and was under the illusion that the weight would fall off as it did after my first!

I could not have been more wrong….

I gain an extra stone after my pregnancy which left me feeling awful about myself. Waking up every morning wondering how I was going to conquer the day ahead of me.

I became very withdrawn and isolated myself. I became depressed and hated myself because I didn’t feel that I could change….. to me there was no way out.

I remember one day I went shopping with my sister and I took a pair of Jeans to the changing room, peeling off my leggings trying not to look in the mirror, I stepped into the jeans….. The waist would not do up…. I pull them off frantically checking the size, ‘it must be wrong, I can’t be bigger than a size 22’….. The size was right, I had gained more weight.

It was time for change!

I got home and I called my consultant and booked in the next day…. I have not looked back and I am so proud of myself for in that moment taking the steps in my journey.

For me it wasn’t about ‘Just losing weight’. I became who I used to be again, I started liking myself again, I socialised more, and…. I started to use the gym. Something I would never have done if I didn’t lose the weight because I was too ashamed and embarrassed to enter into the world of ‘Gym fitties’. I loved my new lease of life so much I even enrolled in a fitness instructor’s course and accomplished my DREAM and built my own personal gym at home.

I have lost 6 stone in total and I have managed to maintain my weight since, for me Cambridge did not just help me lose weight, It broke bad habits, it taught me how to eat again, it made me aware that although we say diet, it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that is ACHIEVABLE. We just need to BELIEVE in ourselves, as with the right support and encouragement you too can make that change and start your journey to a new you.

Dream, Believe, Achieve….. x

How’s this different to other diet plans?

The 1:1 Diet is a lot more flexible than other weight-loss plans and it’s the ONLY one that gives you dedicated, one-to-one support from your own personal diet Consultant. That means your diet is designed for you, and only you. Together with your Consultant, you’ll work out an easy-to-follow eating plan that fits with your routine and gets you the results you want.

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.
