After enduring a complicated 6-month recovery from emergency surgery, I found myself in a deep depression. I had isolated myself from friends and family, my health had declined and I was desperate to recover both physically and mentally.
I had previously tried Lite n’ Easy so I knew that the complete meal plan would suit my lifestyle well. Working in the hospitality industry can be very unpredictable, so having the fliexibility of my meals prepared and ready when I needed them made all the difference.
I ordered the 7 Day Standard Menu with breakfast lunch and dinner and quickly saw some weight loss. I was feeling optimistic and noticed an improvement in my mood almost immediately.
My body was feeling better, I felt more confident and happier, life didn’t feel so heavy. I started to walk regularly and in the beginning, I struggled to walk to the letterbox. Now I am walking 30,000 steps in 1 hour on the treadmill every morning! Walking progressed to running and in August we completed the Sydney City to Surf 8km run. It was an incredible feeling.
Before Lite n' Easy, I was not actively involved in my own health.
I would reach for what I thought was the “easy” option which included fast food, soft drinks and alcohol.
Now, I’ve realised the easiest way to live well and lose weight is with the Lite n’ Easy program. Convenient, fresh, healthy food delivered to my door every week. The huge variety of meals I can choose from keeps things interesting, and I never get bored. All the guesswork is taken out of the equation because the Lite n’ Easy dietitians create the meal plan, and I am getting all the right nutrients.
Over 12 months, I have lost 117 kilos, but the weight loss is not the only positive thing to have occurred.
My mental health has dramatically improved. I can think clearly, and see a bright future for myself. I am happy!
