I have tried various diets and they worked for a little while, then I would get discouraged and give up. I would always put the weight back on quickly, plus a little more. I just kept buying bigger clothes, but when a size 18 was getting too tight, I decided that enough was enough and I had to do something seriously.
I had noticed several Lite n’ Easy ads on TV but kept putting barriers up for myself, too expensive, won’t like the food, etc. One night my husband said why don’t you find out exactly how much it would cost, so I got online to check it out. I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the reasonable cost. In fact, I found it was comparable with what I was spending on the weekly shopping
I decided I would give it a try. Having had two knee reconstructions and not being able to walk far, I was sceptical that I may not lose weight, but I lost 2 kilos in the first week which motivated me to keep going!
I have not had any meals that I don't love. Also, it is so convenient to get our week’s food delivered to the door, as my husband eats the dinners too. I originally was aiming for 10 kilos weight loss. After the first month I was feeling so good and the weight was coming off, so I decided to continue. There really is something for everyone, I love the fresh salads!
Even though I had a slight break over Xmas and New year, I got back on the 5 Day Meal Plan and have now lost a total of 26.5 kilos. I feel so much better and have heaps more energy. Since being on the programme, I have also dropped 3 dress sizes, now fitting comfortably into a size 12-14. I have so much more confidence too. Previously, there was no way anyone could get near me with a camera. Now I don’t mind at all.
I can’t stress enough how much I love Lite n’ Easy as it really is “Light” and “Easy”. I look forward to my deliveries on Friday morning, bring my esky in and pop it on the kitchen bench, unpack it all and turn to my husband and say, “There we go! Shopping and meal prep all done for the week!” It is just so easy and convenient.
I should mention here that I have achieved my weight loss without doing any formal exercise program. I have had a double knee replacement and am unable to walk for very long. I do some gardening and craft activities and the usual household chores.
Going forward I intend to keep the weight off, as I have learnt the type of foods, I need to eat to maintain a healthy weight. Portion size is very important as I was eating almost twice as much as I do now. I would definitely recommend Lite n’ Easy to anyone who wants to achieve a healthy weight loss and feel fabulous.
