If you want to lose weight but are not sure where to start, these inspirational success stories from XLS-Medical will give you more information and could be just the motivation you need.
HAVE YOU TRIED DIETING BEFORE?
“I have always been fighting with my weight – I used to go to slimming clubs for ten years where I lost weight for my wedding. However, weight gradually began to creep back on and I’ve been yo-yo dieting for five years.”
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO TACKLE YOUR WEIGHT?
“I kept blaming other things like shops making their sizes smaller and I was getting very unhappy with my appearance. I decided that this was my time to be happy and get back to the weight I was on my wedding day. I felt if I didn’t do it now, I never would.”
WHAT WAS THE TIPPING POINT THAT MADE YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT?
“I saw a photo of me in a pair of old jeans and yellow top where I looked like a rubber duck. I threw the clothes out and made a conscious decision to get fit and healthy.”
HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE THE WEIGHT LOSS?
“My husband surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate. He knows I am happier when I am confident and comfortable with my weight, he wanted to reward my efforts – he is amazing! I have a dress from Macy’s that I’m aiming to get into, to look hot in the casinos!”
HOW HAVE YOU FOUND USING XLS-MEDICAL?
“It fits seamlessly into my daily routine. As part of the support programme you are encouraged to exercise more. I’ve taken up Zumba and started walking more. I feel more energised than ever before and I’m noticing the weight come off in a different way.”
HAVE FRIENDS AND FAMILY NOTICED THE WEIGHT LOSS?
“Lots of people have been commenting on how amazing I look! I have been sharing the secret to all my friends and family – it’s too good to keep to myself.”
HOW HAS XLS-MEDICAL CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
“I have been able to buy much more flattering and fun clothes than before – I can actually wear a bodycon dress without having to wear pull up pants! I felt like I looked like a marshmallow before but now I feel confident I look good from every angle. I’ve also been able to buy sexier underwear and have the confidence to show off my new body to my husband, which he enjoys! I also feel comfortable in a swimming costume, something I’ve always had issues with before.”
WHY DID YOU START USING XLS-MEDICAL?
“I wanted to meet someone so I joined a dating site. I had some professional photos done for the profile and looked a little podgy and decided now was the time to lose weight. I have an active nine-year-old son. He was an IVF baby and very special to me. As an older single mum, I wanted to ensure I would be fit and able to keep up with him as he grew older and also wanted to set a good example for him about body confidence/issues. I had weight issues all my life and didn’t want my son to grow up mimicking my behaviour.”
HOW DID YOU FIND XLS-MEDICAL?
“I lost 12 pounds in 12 weeks – it does what it says on the tin. My diet has improved; I’m not getting mood swings and not craving sweet stuff, which I used to get on other diets.”
WHAT WILL YOU DO TO CELEBRATE THE WEIGHT LOSS?
“I have a holiday coming up with the new man in my life (the dating site worked) and I will be purchasing a bikini for the first time!”
ANY ITEMS OF CLOTHING YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET BACK INTO?
“I had a wardrobe of size 12s and couldn’t get back into them. I couldn’t afford to buy new clothes but have a pair of size 10 jeans waiting for me – I can’t wait to get them back on because they make my legs look fab!”
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING THAT YOU COULDN’T DO BEFORE?
“I’m thinking of getting a bike with my partner so we can go cycling together. I haven’t been on a bike since I was a teenager and I’m now 47.”
WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY THINK?
“My son and I went on the trampoline together and he loved it. He loves that we go to the park together and motivates me at fitness sessions. When people started noticing at work, it felt amazing and I punched the air. It feels good.”
