Slimmer of the Month – January
Posted on 12. Feb, 2013 by Marvin in Best Self, Health
It was a difficult decision but Alyson Taylor has won our inaugural Slimmer of the month award.
2013 has seen the launch of my new Neuro Gastric Band weight loss program, there are some key differences and improvements to previous years programs and I am happy to say that the changes seem to be paying great dividends as I am pleased to say we have a record amount of weight loss.
Virtually every one of my weight loss clients have demonstrated a great attitude, belief in the program and more importantly a belief in themselves. Alyson certainly demonstrated this on her way to losing over a stone (16 pounds approx) in just over a month. But what has been more impressive has been Alyson’s attitude. She really wants it and her enthusiasm has led her to really understand and live on that healthy lifestyle path.
Here’s what she kindly had to say about the programme:
What do I like about the programme, it’s easy!
I can be quite lazy at times, otherwise I wouldn’t have put the weight on in the first place, always taking the convenience food option, grabbing some rubbish in a garish wrapper, with more additives than you can shake a stick at, zapping it in the microwave and calling it dinner, drinking diet drinks on a daily basis and generally doing no exercise at all.
I decided just before Xmas that enough was enough, I don’t like being fat, it doesn’t make me happy so I needed to do something.
I decided to try Marvins programme as I’d tried many weight loss things before, but any weight I had lost I always put back on, I needed to change.
A few things have really stuck with me thus far, the first one following on from a visualisation, Marvin told me to imagine doing the things that get me to my goal, not just to imagine being at goal, that pic of me chopping fresh fruit and veg isn’t just a picture now, that’s what I do on a regular basis, in fact probably every day.
Next came the walking to work, pah, me walk . . . . .well guess what, it’s what I do now all the time, I have even had the internal dialogue with myself along the lines of bus or walk. . . . .bus or walk. . . . No walk, that’s what you do, you don’t catch the bus anymore.
Finally after a session involving supermarkets I now get an overwhelming feeling of smugness when I put all the healthy food stuffs in my basket, I find myself checking out other people’s shopping and feeling a little sad for them having yet another mass produced, chemical laden pizza for dinner.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have a long way to go, and I do slip off the path sometimes, but it’s a little slip, I don’t beat myself up over it, I just get right back onto the healthy and way more colourful path, I want my food to be a reflection of my life, colourful, vibrant, spicy, exciting, I mean, who wants a boring bland beige life certainly not me.
Marvin helped me to visualise and realise what I wanted, and all I had to do was lie back and listen.
Well done Alyson, and good luck to all the other Best Self Clinic Slimmers in their quest to reach their target weights.
