An Interview with Sarah
TBC: Sarah, what was your goal when you started?
Sarah: I really wanted to feel better about myself. I often joke that I have been dieting for 25 years but on and off my weight has taken over my whole life. I had a holiday coming up and the thought of covering up (as always) made me feel miserable. I had four weeks to go to my holiday and thought that even half a stone loss would be something and probably only what I would end up putting on while I was away.
TBC: How did you end up being overweight?
Sarah: I have always struggled with my weight but this got worse when I had my first little boy. I almost got back to my pre-pregnancy weight after having him and then found I was expecting my second son.
TBC: Why did you choose The Body Clinic?
Sarah: Kate had been recommended to me and I liked the idea that the weight loss programmes were different and something I hadn’t tried before. I also liked the personalised, one to one nature of being able to work with Kate who was focused on me and not a room full of other people. It also seemed very flexible too and easy to fit round my busy life.
TBC: How did you find your first meeting with us?
Sarah: I was really nervous but was instantly put at ease. Kate explained everything really clearly and I felt that I could get in touch at any time throughout the week if I needed to. Kate was friendly and as the meetings have gone on our get togethers have been fun.
TBC: How did you find your first week?
Sarah:The first week was easier than I expected. I had read other people’s stories on the internet and was expecting to be starving and have headaches but it was surprisingly easy. I was rewarded and delighted with a good weight loss to spur me on to the next week. I also drank loads of water which I have done religiously every day since starting; 3 litres of water a day. I am convinced this has played a massive role in helping me lose the weight so easily.*
TBC: How did you feel as your weight loss journey continued?
Sarah: Amazing!! The weight came off steadily with a loss at every weigh in; even following a 2 week holiday in France! Kate was so helpful in coming up with advice, ideas and suggestions to help me through tricky points such as holidays and birthdays etc.*
TBC: How did you feel when you got to goal?
TBC: What was your experience like at The Body Clinic?
Sarah: I couldn’t have lost weight without Kate. I have felt so supported throughout my journey. She gave me plenty of advice, support and the occasional bit of tough love which was what I needed. For example, if I said that I had something coming up and felt like I was going to ‘cheat’, she told me I had to want “that” more than losing weight. It was clear and straight talking and it really helped. Never judgemental but really clear that I had choices and I just had to decide what was most important. I have hidden behind lots of excuses in the past. Kate even looked up the menus for me at restaurants I was planning to go to, to help me choose more carefully.
TBC: What has losing weight and achieving your goal meant to you?
Sarah: I have so much confidence and feel so much happier. I never dreamed I would be able to lose the weight that I have; and I feel happier than I have about my body image in the last 10 years.*
TBC: What was your starting dress size and current dress size?
Sarah: I was a size 16 and now I’m a size 10 – although I can’t quite get used to this and keep taking the wrong sizes into the changing room!
