Before Lite n’ Easy, I had tried everything to lose weight. But I never stuck to anything for very long and the weight would always come back on. As a Type 1 Diabetic since childhood, my endocrinologist had said “If you stay like this you are going to shorten your life span”. So in late 2020, I decided to refocus and give weight loss a proper go, again. I had the feeling it was now or never.
I discussed Lite n’ Easy as an option with my medical team and was given the go ahead. The 7-Day Lite Meal Plan which offered 1200 calories, including meals and snacks, helped keep my insulin levels stable so I felt in control of my diabetes. The potential to lose weight also helped my diabetes greatly.
This time I was determined and enlisted the help of a Jump Start meal plan, which involved skipping 2 breakfasts and intermittent fasting for those 2 days. The Lite n' Easy App was great for tracking my food and my weight loss. Week 1, I achieved major weight loss results and as the weeks continued the weight continued to drop!
All the food was absolutely delicious, which made it easier to stick to. But for me, one of the most valuable aspects of being on the full meal plan is the education around food, portion sizes and nutrition in general.
Being a very busy early learning teacher, it is non-stop all day. Before I lost weight, I lacked the energy to play with my pre-schoolers. Now I am scaling the obstacle course with more energy than they have and loving every moment. I am walking every day around our local parks with my fiance and feeling amazing inside and out.
I have officially lost 50 kilos and I get so excited to step on the scales now because I see the numbers going down every single week. Everyone is noticing and commenting on my weight loss, and I’m so eager to tell them it’s all because of Lite n’ Easy.
Long term, I have decided to stay on Lite n’ Easy permanently. It is my new lifestyle change, and assists with keeping my Type 1 Diabetes in check, alongside assisting me to maintain a healthy weight.
With Lite n’ Easy as a permanent part of my new healthier lifestyle and a long-term sustainable solution, I can relax and enjoy myself.
I am a completely different person, feeling confident and happier in all aspects of my life, plus I am the healthiest I have ever been.
