Starting Weight on day of program was 86.1 end weight 76.1.

For my story...get comfortable because it might be one of those "long post" warnings.

I could talk about how delicious the meals were and how easy it was to make them, I could talk about the exercise and what it did for my body, fitness and self esteem, I could talk about the coaching and how it helped keep me on track but what I really want to talk about was how I came to love myself and see something in myself which I missed on the old protocol I did a few years back.

As some of you may know, I joined about two years ago. I lost 23kgs and was over the moon, finally, I had lost the weight!

COVID & Lockdown hit me hard, I lost my business and I used food to make myself feel better. I comfort ate my way back to the starting line!

Then this opportunity came around to join the new and improved Prgram. I was excited and intrigued!!!

I had some ups and downs during the program as I struggle with depression and anxiety and ended up facing a few loses in my life (which amplified my usual struggle tenfold!). During this period it was definitely the most difficult time during the program, (which I think slowed down my progress weight wise, a bit), but I am thrilled to say that not only did I still lose just under 10kgs, but most importantly, I lost centimeters and LEARNED SO MUCH about HOW to actually make the changes and WHY I comfort eat!!!

Technically speaking I should lose another 16kgs to be my "BMI IDEAL WEIGHT". 16kgs off my current body just does not feel right and seems underweight. 

Well, I looked at myself in the mirror and felt happy with what I saw. You see, let me put this into perspective: I lost the weight before and due to my inverted triangle body shape, when I lost all the weight, I had no bum, no legs, nothing! No shape. NADA! It was this realisation that changed things for me. I WANT to keep this shape, but my focus has now shifted.

I do not want or need to really lose much more weight. The program has helped me get to a point where I am happy. I now want to focus on weight and strength training, not to bulk up, but to be fit, firm and healthy!!!!! For me, I have finally reached that step. Firming up, fitness, strength!!!

After my pregnancy, I think my stomach will take a far greater amount of work and attention to go back to what I would like it to be, but aside from that, I guess I just found and fell back in love with.....myself. 

I know that I've still got a ways to go to get to the point where I feel completely fit, strong and free, but I am so happy and proud of how far I have come up to this point, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. 

This journey is not only a journey of the body, but the mind and soul. In the end, what does it help if you lose some weight, (anyone can do that trying out various fads) but you always gain it back because that weight is not only coming back through what you are eating, but WHY you are eating what you are eating? Mind, Body, Soul!!!!! Throughout this program I have not just lost weight, but found myself (and am continuing everyday)

I feel like for the first time in my life, through this program, I am not only losing the unwanted weight, but I am learning to connect with myself again and take control of my mind, body and soul.

If you want to end the cycle of perpetual diets, then I would definitely recommend Diet Doctor Ditch the Diet Complete Kit. It will not only help you learn how/what to cook, but it helps you figure out exactly WHY you are constantly gaining the weight, and give you the tools to change that.
