Diet Doctor Hall Of Fame
I can’t explain just how grateful I am for The Diet Doctor, the HCG injections and more importantly, this group! The love, support and encouragement has, for me personally, been the most important and precious factor of this whole experience. Of course the internal and external factors may be different for everyone, and I’ve met a lot of amazing, confident, beautiful, powerful people who are overweight, so of course it’s not to say that this applies to everyone, but my point is that it was how IIIIII felt and if you do relate and you feel the way I did, take comfort in the fact that no matter the reason you got to where you are physically, no matter how impossible it seems , IT IS COMPLETELY possible to actually make that change and SEE IT THROUGH! #YOUCANDOIT!
When I started my weight loss journey I weighed 107kg. This is the biggest I have ever been in my life. At school I was always very athletic and could eat whatever I wanted because I trained really hard every day. After school, the freedom of eating junk food and living a very unhealthy lifestyle took its toll. Endless partying coupled with the very little exercise I was trying to do had absolutely no positive results. I was only bluffing myself.
"I've been overweight for most of my adult life. Roundabout 2 years after high school I was going through a very difficult phase that left me feeling completely deflated and jaded. This is when the serious weight gain started. I use to brush it off as normal student weight gain. I made excuses for my need to purchase new clothes and I honestly didn't think that bad."
“Hey Everyone, I am proud to say that I lost 8KG during my 30 Day Challenge & I went down one dress size too. Since then I have lost a total of 23KG & went from a size 18 to a size 12. I am no longer following the eating protocol but The Diet Doctor’s Weight Loss Program helped me change my lifestyle completely. Thank you to The Diet Doctor Team for all you help & support & that you to the Whatsapp Support Group for all the support too! All of you are awesome.”
You have all seen her journey! Her inspirational REAL videos. We are all human and have our ups and downs. The incredible loss from this incredible woman of over 60kgs is what WE are all about. In her own words "We all know what it feels like to give up I want to know what it feels like to succeed. Sometimes we face difficult hurdles- set backs - it's okay.
“At 104kgs I hated the way I looked and felt with every fiber in me. I had so many issues with my body and tried every conceivable thing on the market. Nothing worked and I could never stick to it for longer than a couple of days. Instead, it felt like I was just swelling like a balloon and was going to pop soon. With each diet my sense of failure grew and I felt like I was doomed to look and feel this way forever.”
When I was 18 years old, (1982) I weighed 53kg’s. I then fell pregnant with my first son. I gained 26kg’s. I picked up most of the weight on my thighs and buttocks. I lost all the weight after 6 months of dieting (my own diet). I only ate rusks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (I come from a very big family (dad).
Then, in 1985, I had my second son. I then picked up 36kg’s. I also went on a strict diet. Lost some weight and thereafter I lost interest in losing weight as I was up and down (yo-yo).
I’m not sure when it started but I’m pretty sure that what started as emotional eating, spilled over into giving up. And then trying each and every quick fix I could find to temporarily feel better about myself.
The Diet doctor program has given me the structure and plan that helped and motivated me. I’ve got a routine again which keeps me sane. And through my journey, I’ve realized that I was always losing weight for other people… I’ve finally realized that It will only last and work if I’m doing this for me.
If I’m doing it because I want a happy healthy body able to move and do incredible things.
Not for a guy to like me more.
Not for acceptance.
But because I deserve it.
“When I heard about this program I thought that this is just the same old diet story and I won’t lose any weight! Boy oh boy was I proven wrong in the best way possible!
I started this journey in January, you know the new year resolution of losing weight and all that jazz, never in my wildest dream did I actually thought that losing weight would have been this simple, long term and so effective!
