"When I first came across the WeightMatters practice I had no idea that it would signal the start of a new life for me. I had struggled with an eating disorder and obesity for 25 years, and truly felt that I could never recover or change. Having spent years (and a significant amount of money) on failed weight loss attempts, I was stuck and had finally reached my breaking point.
However, from the moment I walked into the WeightMatters Practice, I knew that it was different. Finally, I had met an amazing group of people who truly understood and cared. Over the next few months, through the Shrink programme, I began my recovery. I came to terms with the fact that my relationship with food was much deeper than simply overindulging. I felt valued and heard for the first time in my life and I finally faced some very difficult experiences and emotions.
In terms of my own health and nutrition, I feel completely re-educated. I, and in fact my whole family, have enjoyed experimenting with new and varied tastes. Sitting with my children and enjoying a meal together used to be so rare, but is now a daily occurrence.
My weight loss journey has just begun, but now I feel like a different person. I have been given the confidence to believe in myself and the tools to change what I need to change, and I have no doubt that this time I will succeed.
I cannot thank the WeightMatters team enough for giving me back my life."
