We are constantly receiving positive stories from our Waitplate family of transitions into a healthier life, a new and positive outlook on life and losing weight that has been holding people back.
One of these such stories is from our good friend Loretta who has documented her Waitplate journey from Day 1 of receiving her Waitplate system last year. She has a growing online following and is constantly keeping us updated here at Waitplate HQ on her wonderful journey of health and here is how it all started . . .
For years we’ve tried to lose weight, but being classic procrastinators, we usually found an excuse not to begin. It was always someone’s birthday, or some special holiday celebration and over the years, each celebration somehow managed to link into the next one and instead of losing weight, our weight ballooned to the point where we were unable to function properly in every day life.
Hubby suffered a spinal injury and the extra weight caused so much more pain, and I ate whenever I was feeling sad… or worried… or even bored and ended up HUGE!
Years later we finally found ourselves sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Enough was enough, but then we were faced with the dilemma of which diet to choose! Diet shakes? fruit only? one of the many commercial diets?… we were so over dieting!!!
I decided to ask our local GP for advice. He told me straight and rather grimly, “the only thing I would prescribe for you would be gastric sleeving”… I was shocked. Had we really let ourselves go that far?!?
Soon after that I heard about Waitplate and as I was watching the video I just knew it was for us. Finally something made perfect sense to me!
We could eat whatever I wanted, with Waitplate, and still lose weight. Nowadays, we can just take our special cutlery along wherever we go, with the timer and sometimes the little cake template as a reminder. When we’re at home, the templates are so easy to use, and they help stop us from serving ourselves too much food when we’re tired and a little complacent with portion sizes. Waitplate takes the struggle out of weight loss and healthy eating.. and makes a healthy diet simple and entertaining.
Well only a couple of months on and I’d lost 15kg, and my husband (who can’t exercise at all because of his spinal condition) has lost 10kg… Not bad going considering we had attended 3 all-you-can-eat buffets just this month alone with family and friends.
We have found that Waitplate is simple, it’s affordable (it pays for itself just in the extra food you save the first month) and it works!!!
We have a long way to go, but we know that we’ll reach our goal because the first part of our weight loss journey has been so easy with Waitplate.
Well here is a new chapter in my life.
I have finally decided to ditch dieting once and for all, and claim back the healthy diet and lifestyle I surrendered years ago.
Here is the first picture of my journey, and the first day I began using The Waitplate System … and it’s proving to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.
Yes, I have a long way to go, but every day I get closer to my goal.
25 days in and I’ve already lost 8kg (17.6lbs).
