Every bride wants to look their best on their big day but with lots to plan and prepare it can be a busy time leaving little time to devote to losing weight. Our two brides Shanna and Vicky both lost 2 stone for their weddings.
“I dropped two and a half stone for my wedding with Diet Chef!”
Shanna, 25 from Sidcup, was always rewarding herself with food. Whenever she felt she did something well, she’d tuck in to some comfort food but if she was a bit low comfort food was there too. With her wedding coming up, Shanna knew something had to be done.
“I realised that I didn’t want to look like that anymore, I was 12 stone 5, the heaviest I had ever been. I wanted to be able to wear trendy clothes and with my big day approaching, it was important for me to look my best.”
Shanna saw a television advert for Diet Chef and thought it looked great. “I am a busy teacher and when I get home, the last thing I want to do is start thinking about making low calorie, healthy food that’s tasty! With Diet Chef there was a good variety of meals that took just minutes to prepare and I wouldn’t have to work out points, calories, or what I could or couldn’t eat. It was also completely affordable at only £7.11 a day which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. All I had to do was add fruit and veg!”
Shanna was a little sceptical at first about the diet, “I thought I’d have to go through hunger for the first couple of weeks whilst my body adjusted like other diets I’d tried. But I was pleasantly surprised! I never felt hungry on the diet and loved how convenient it was! The soups and milkshakes were easy to take to work and I really enjoyed wholesome meals like chicken korma or cottage pie in the evenings.”
On the first week of Diet Chef, Shanna lost 4lbs. From then on she lost at least a pound or two a week. “I always allowed myself a treat night on Friday and didn’t always stick to the plan rigidly (like when birthdays and hen dos came along!) but I knew as soon as I started properly back on it, the weight would start to shift again.”
Shanna has recently celebrated her marriage and managed to slim down to 10 stone. Her target! She was overjoyed, “The day of my wedding was wonderful! I loved every second of it. I felt confident and happy in myself. I loved the way I looked in my dress and couldn’t wait to be photographed. Everyone commented on how great I looked and asked how I had lost my weight. I was very happy to tell them that it was with Diet Chef.”
Vicky, a marketing manager from Clapham was determined to shift the pounds in time for her wedding. Vicky pledged to shift 2 stone in order to fit into her dream wedding dress when she walked down the aisle to wed her university sweetheart. As a weight loss incentive Vicky deliberately ordered her dress 2 sizes too small to ensure that she would have no choice other than to lose the weight in time for her big day.
As every bride knows, wedding photos last a lifetime, so it’s crucial that you look and feel your best on the day they are taken. Vicky says that she found the Diet Chef system very easy to stick to and was impressed by how convenient and easy it was to fit into her busy work and social life. She says, “everything was planned and calorie controlled and so easy to follow, whenever I felt peckish I just snacked on fruit. I felt the diet was great for teaching me proper portion control rather than just eating everything that was put in front of me regardless of how full I felt!”
In 8 weeks Vicky was able to lose a fantastic 2 stone, and now weighs 9 stone 11 lb. She looked and felt fabulous in her wedding dress and had a brilliant time dancing the night away with her groom. What is more she was able to proudly display her wedding photos rather than hiding them away.
Vicky says “I was so pleased with the fantastic results. Diet Chef was the perfect helping hand I needed to look and feel great for my wedding. It was a magical day, but the countless compliments I received on my weighloss and dress made the day even better!”
