Why did you want to try a health food delivery service?
I have been overweight since I was 11, obese since I was 19, and morbidly obese since I was 25. I have tried practically everything to lose weight: Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Slimming World, Lighter Life, LadyZone gym, Lipotrim, Atkins, Dukan, hypnosis, and good old fashioned calorie counting. I even had a gastric band fitted. The most I could ever seem to lose was 8 lbs, and I always put double that straight back on again.
Why did you chose to Soulmatefood?
I came across Soulmatefood last summer while looking longingly online at weight loss retreats. I signed up for the 2 day trial, and was amazed. The food was so delicious, it was really easy to stick to. When I got back from holiday in September, I signed up for the Weight Loss Plan and have never looked back!
How has your Soulmatefood experience been so far?
I’ve completed changed my relationship with food as a result of the plan. I used to eat constantly, and always feel full. Soulmatefood has taught me how good it feels to let yourself get hungry, just in time for a meal. The food is really quite tasty and I look forward to my meals and snacks, but don’t obsess over them the way a bar of chocolate in the cupboard ‘calls’ to me! Initially, that one day off a week was my saving grace. If ever I was tempted in the week, I would tell myself “It’s ok, you can have it on Sunday!” I still look forward to the occasional treat on my day off, or a meal out, but it no longer feels like my raison d’etre (reason for living).
My health has improved hugely as a result of the plan as well, I used to get headaches frequently and was permanently tired. I also suffered from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. All of these health issues have disappeared, and I have so much more energy. I am enjoying an active lifestyle now, and ride my exercise bike 5 times a week. I can run around the park with my son, and climb the cargo net at Legoland. I actually look forward to doing housework and gardening, as I know it is burning more calories.
I’d like to lose another 3 stone, and I feel confident that I can achieve this. I am starting to integrate more days off so that I can train myself to eat healthily when I eventually leave the programme. If my weight loss continues steadily at about a pound per week, I should reach my goal of 8 and a half stone in time for my 30th birthday.
I consider myself to be a high achiever. I’ve been a student at both Oxford and Cambridge, am successful in my career and stick to the hard decisions as a mother. The one area of my life where I have never felt like I had control is food. Because of Soulmatefood, I now feel like I am finally becoming the person I was meant to be.
Thank you Jocelyn for sharing your very honest and insightful story with us.
