Karen tried many weight loss options over the years, but nothing resulted in long term success.
“My life became a string of crash diets – I’d lose weight, put it back on, lose it again. It was a love-hate relationship. Bombarded with a tsunami of weight loss advice, I needed something with a solid base and structure. I didn’t like sitting in a room with other women and talking about what I ate that day – that wasn’t for me,” says Karen.
After hearing about the LifeShape Clinic through some close friends, Karen finally decided there was no better time to commit to her own health and wellbeing.
“Because of the multidisciplinary approach, I felt like I had finally found the right help with a scientific background and that was a big thing for me,” says Karen. “When you start seeing results, it is very encouraging.”
She benefited from the strong support network at LifeShape Clinic, particularly her weekly one-on-one appointments with her dietitian. Karen’s program also helped her change to a positive mindset.
“For me, the weight loss has been secondary. The way I think about myself and my health now has been the biggest victory. As a grandmother now myself, I didn’t want to get to the point where I couldn’t be active. I wanted to make sure I could run around the park with my grandson,” says Karen.
After an astonishing 28kg weight loss on her LifeShape 9 program, Karen’s mindset towards herself has completely changed, and she is positive about what lies ahead.
“When I felt like giving up, I would remember how far I have come. Why would I ever want to go backwards?”
