Lynne Palfreyman before her weight lossWeight loss 3 stones 12lbs (in 6 months)

“After a life-time of dieting, I now understand how my body works.  Something just clicked with me and I am no longer addicted to sugar.”

Lynn had stuggled all her life with sugar addiction and knew that it was causing problems with her heatlh.  As a Foster Carer she dearly wanted to beat this so that she could stay healthy and give her children the support they needed.  Lynn attended the Zeal Health workshops over a period of 12 weeks and here's her story.

 

Lynne Palfreyman after her weight lossGoing to the Workshops turned my life around.  I now understand how my body works and that food is fuel for the body – not just need and desire.  I went all summer without any sweet things and I have overcome my addiction to sweet things.  I can now have the occasional treat in moderation but this is rare and not the norm.  I couldn’t get enough of sugary foods and I can understand now that the body cannot live on sugar alone.  Something just clicked with me.  I have dieted all my life – it isn’t coming off fast, I’m losing between 1 and 4 pounds a month and I stuggle to exercise due to back problems.  I have gone from a size 22 to a size 16 so I was just under 16 stone and now am 12 stone 12 pounds.

Knowing I could keep in touch with the course leaders helped me aswell. All my adult life I have been around 15 and 16 stone and have never lost weight beneath this, it was the fact that there was no pressure on you to lose weight in the course – it was about the body and the mind.  I look at myself in the mirror and think – oh, this is me, it’s great.
