I have been on a journey to get to my ideal weight for a year now just after giving birth to my son and being the heaviest in life, 73kg in Aug 2019. Before I found Deborah Murtagh’s 30 day drop a dress size plan, I lost weight but the hard way, via calorie restriction and vigorous exercise, and it took over 10 months to lose 10 kgs! Most importantly, I didn’t have a healthy relationship with food; some days I would binge and some days I would restrict, so it was inconsistent to say the least!
I was desperate to find a better way to eat and just when I needed it, Deborah’s programme randomly showed up on Facebook page! The programme was definitely a game changer for me. Yes, I did lose some weight, but more importantly I gained a healthier way to eat! Apart from the first few days to start with, I didn’t feel hungry at all, so felt no need to binge eat. As a vegetarian, I did think I would struggle to be on a low carb-high fat diet, but the Facebook support group helped in terms of recipe ideas which was life saver!
Additionally, I realised the main factor in my weight loss and keeping the weight off is my mindset. Deborah’s mindset tools really helped with re-set my relationship with food and reinforce why I wanted to get to my ideal weight having felt overweight most of adult life!
By the end of the 30 days, not only I lost 3.4kg with ease, but I genuinely felt such a difference in my energy levels! My afternoon slumps were gone and that was even without the daily coffee hit! I really want to carry this lifestyle on so I have joined the main TKS programme, not just to reach my ideal weight and BMI ( 3kg more to go!) but to maintain the high energy levels and the positive relationship I have with food.
I am now around 59kg and I haven’t been under 60kg in over a decade! Thank you Deborah!
