“Nothing I tried before worked, I had no confidence in myself being able to lose weight. My dietitian Rosemary was amazing. As soon as I started changing my diet, the weight was just dropping off! Although I have physically changed, the biggest part has been the mental change – I am more positive and confident now and my biggest problem is that none of my clothes fit!”
