"Having spent the best part of 6 years using food replacement packs every 3-4 months, in order to lose large amounts of weight (that I then put back on), I was exhausted. I was tired of the effect this bingeing and starving was having on my family life - never eating the same as my husband and children, hiding my packs from young eyes, obsessing about what I could eat and being unable to enjoy a takeaway or meal out. I had lost all spontaneity and joy - not just around food but also in relation to my whole life. I was tense, picky and controlling - generally very unsettled and no fun to be around.
I feel totally different about myself, about food in general and my value as a person. Now I value myself, I am nicer to be around, I'm relaxed about food and don't have the need to lose a certain amount of weight by a particular date. I appreciate what I see in the mirror and can look at myself as a fit, healthy person who is a good person.
I really feel that I have learned to live again and it is totally down to Margaret. She is kind, reassuring, positive, patient and committed to success - and I miss my sessions with her very much! I would wholeheartedly recommend Margaret to anyone." JP
