"Thank you, Margaret, for helping me with a lot more than I had in mind. My wish to stop craving sugar has been granted but, more importantly, following our sessions I have got out of my rut and got going again. My motivation has returned and I have found that all the jobs and activities I had put off for so long have now been tackled and actually enjoyed.
Your relaxed and friendly approach made me feel that I was very much in safe hands. I can't believe the difference it has made to my life in only a few weeks.
Healthier Eating & Becoming More Active
I'm surprised that I've not eaten and not wanted cheese at all. Amazing! I've had no chocolate bars and no lemonade, with no effort. I've been walking several times with a friend and her dog, I'm checking labels and am more thoughtful about food and what I'm putting into my body. But, it's not all consuming like a diet. I haven't even wanted chocolate!
I'm thinking and planning more around eating but it's not a big thing. I now have a better perspective and feel so much better about myself. I'm really pleased and liking myself more. I'm incredulous! SS, Copthorne
Non-Foods Banished & Eating Healthily
"I feel very, very good. Since our session I haven't had a chocolate bar at all and it repulses me to go to the vending machine at work. I'm really proud of myself that I'm not using the machine. I stopped at a petrol garage and didn't buy any chocolate or a sausage roll. I now have healthy snacks instead. In the afternoons, I don't want anything to eat and the evening puddings have been replaced with yogurts. I'm feeling full on healthy foods. I'm shopping for healthier foods and my partner has been very supportive with more home cooked meals.
My colleagues have noticed, I can't believe the difference and I'm a lot happier." KP
Bingeing and Starving
"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
