At 92 kilos, I wasn’t happy with my weight. I didn’t have any health issues, however I just didn’t like the way I looked or felt and wanted to change that.
After seeing the Lite n’ Easy ads on TV, I thought I would give it a go. I didn’t know if I would stick to it or if I would like the food, so I just ordered some Dinners first, to try them. I quickly moved onto ordering breakfast and lunch as well, mainly because I enjoyed the meals and the whole thing was so convenient for me being on my own.
The taste and variety offered by Lite n’ Easy is amazing - everything's so fresh. I've tried other food delivery systems and I've never found any of them to be as fresh as Lite n' Easy. There is so much to choose from, that it never feels like a sacrifice and you never get bored.
I am now 72 kilos and very happy at this weight. I’m a very active person. Going out and dancing are some of my favourite things to do on the weekends. Not having a driver’s license, I walk or take public transport, so exercise is easy for me. Buying nice clothes and going from a size 22 to a 14-16 is also a nice feeling and so rewarding.
The choice of meals is great, and I actually enjoy eating now. Instead of buying a chocolate thick shake while at the shops when I need an energy boost, I now eat a small pack of dried fruit and nuts which is included with my Lite n’ Easy lunch, or a piece of fruit. The reality of life is, we are likely to overindulge on special occasions but generally I can now control that feeling of wanting more food because I feel satisfied in general with the food I get from Lite n' Easy.
When friends ask how much I spend, they are pleasantly surprised at the affordability and recently my friend and her husband commented on how great I look and started the program too.
Losing weight is a personal thing for everyone. But when I reflect on losing 20 kilos, I think it is pretty crazy that I have achieved that and now comfortably maintaining a healthy weight.
I don’t see Lite n’ Easy as a diet, it is simply enjoying healthy meals and losing weight at the same time.
