Before Lite n' Easy, I’d been overweight for as long as I could remember. I had tried several times to lose weight with the latest fad diets but nothing ever stuck. In 2021, my wife fell pregnant, and this kick-started my weight loss journey.
I was ordering Lite n' Easy for breakfast and lunch and started walking the dogs. I had learnt from all my previous weight loss failures and this time I wasn’t going on a diet. I actually banned the word “diet” in our house, I was instead “changing my lifestyle”.
With Lite n’ Easy, I could feel the difference straight away. I was enjoying the food, the convenience and the weight started falling off. Best of all, I wasn’t hungry, tired or irritable because the food was so good. I would constantly have to remind myself to have all my snacks and everything was super filling, so I never found myself hungry or craving anything - it was all right there for me.
I started walking the dogs just around the block, then after about 2 weeks, I started going further, and further. Within a month, I was walking 10km twice a day. Now I start each day with a 10km walk wearing a 10kg weighted vest around my suburb and I’ve become one of those people I spent my life being jealous of, smiling and exercising every day!
In the beginning I lost 3-4 kilos a week, then as my body adjusted to my new lifestyle, I averaged 1-2 kilos per week. I reached my goal weight of 80 kilos in just 50 weeks and 2 weeks before the birth of my daughter in July 2022. I have kept it off ever since.
I cannot even begin to describe the immense joy and satisfaction that comes with the combination of reaching your goal weight for the first time in your life, successfully losing weight after so many failed attempts and the birth of your firstborn child. I owe it all to Lite n’ Easy.
I’m a high school teacher and there’s one little story that I think sums it up for me. In 2019 the students were running a “Superhero” themed day and my class suggested I come as Thor but “Thor from Endgame when he really let himself go”. Move to 2022, and my students suggested that I come as Thor again but “you can come as Thor once he is fit and strong again now!” The kids now refer to Superhero Day and my “BeThor and After Day.”
I’ve never felt better and I have Lite n’ Easy to thank for changing my life, for breaking the cycle. I’m happier, I’m healthier and I’m all the better for it.
