Meet Ashlee, a dedicated Biomedical Scientist and loving mum to her two children. Ashlee embarked on Oviva’s Tier 3 Way to Wellness programme, where she was determined to make positive changes to her overall health and well-being.
“Before the programme, I had a constant general feeling of I can’t be bothered.”
What was my life before the programme? It often felt chaotic and I had no structure to my eating. I had a persistent feeling of sluggishness, frequent tummy pains and a sense of laziness. I had a constant feeling of ‘I can’t be bothered.’ I was in a rut, and I knew I needed to make a change to my lifestyle. Feeling at rock bottom about my weight and overall health, I recognised the need for change and decided to take action. I made an appointment with my GP, and it was during that visit to the GP surgery when I realised I was fully committed to making a change. My GP referred me onto Oviva’s Tier 3 Way to Wellness programme, knowing it would provide the support I needed.
“My first meal after TDR was homemade honey chilli chicken with rice, it was an absolute delight!”
The reintroduction of solid food made me a little nervous at first. I was unsure how my body would react, and how I would feel eating again. However, after I ate my first meal, which was homemade chilli chicken with rice, it was a delight and I savoured each bite. Gradually, with the support of Oviva’s digital tools and advice from my health coach, I successfully weaned myself off shakes and soups. I started to treat myself to small pieces of chocolate and realised I no longer craved it like I did before. Now, I can enjoy a bit of chocolate alongside my healthy eating, thanks to the progress I’ve made.
