Holly Has Lost 40kgs!

Holly spent 25 years of her life hooked on sugar in any form - takeaways, cookies, and chocolate - before she finally took control of her body and her mind. Nowadays, Holly has gone from 105 kilograms to 66 kilos - and learned to love herself in the process. "My sugar addiction is no longer in control of me,'

Holly's weight gain problems really started when she moved away from home at age 17 and discovered alcohol: 'I suddenly had this ability to do what I wanted and eat what I wanted,' she remembered.

'The problem wasn't so much with the alcohol, it was that the alcohol led to bad food choices.' Confessing that she didn't really know what a healthy meal looked like, Holly would survive off a diet of takeaways, cookies, and chocolate and eschewed food prep and fruit and vegetables:

'It's funny because when you're bigger, you never look at yourself as bigger - you don't realize your size,' she explained. It wasn't until she developed tonsilitis and was placed on the scales at the doctors that Holly even realized she clocked in at 105 kilograms. 'I remember bawling my eyes out on the phone to my mum and saying things had to change,'

What followed was not a smooth weight loss journey. Instead, Holly spent three years on various challenges, trying to go entirely without sugar and 'crashing off a lack of sugar all the time as I was used to it'.

Holly eventually joined our program, because it allowed her to eat what she wanted but also made sure that she re-trained her mind when it came to her nemesis, sugar:

'Drew cuts nothing out. The method gives you that perfect balance of carbs, fat, and sugar,' she said.

'Before I would eat my chicken, rice, and broccoli and feel good, and then eat something bad later and be filled with self-loathing.

'On this programme, I can eat goat's cheese carbonara - which I had the other evening - healthy homemade chocolate and pasta, it's all about moderation.' She also now weighs 66 kilos but said the main improvement has been in her mind: 'I love myself now. I don't pick at things I hate, I eat what I enjoy,' she said.

My advice to anyone on this program is just to stick with it. Keep going. Don't beat yourself up for a slip-up, pick up and keep going. It gets easier with time. Love yourself always, even when you don't like yourself that much, you can and will do it! Talk to others and don't be afraid to say how you are feeling. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my story.

For about 2 months the DBF program just kept popping up on my news feed. I kept putting off joining until I saw a picture of myself at my cousin's wedding.  This photo finally got me to sign up and I haven't looked back. Its been so much easier then I thought it would be.

I sleep better, my skin is clearer and I've also found an outlet for when I'm anxious or stressed. I can't thank Drew, his team and everyone else that is going through this program as well. There is so much support in this group it makes this journey so much easier.

The great thing is my perception of myself has now changed dramatically. I no longer look at myself with self-loathing when I try on clothes. What was once a chore is now something I really enjoy. I have more confidence to go out and mix with other people and the DBF way has just become a part of my lifestyle now.

For anyone who is doubting themselves I say keep going, what have you got to lose apart from all the things you don't like? What have you got to gain? Everything that you always wanted to be! Just go for it, like me, you will be so glad you did!

My whole way of thinking about food has changed and I now make healthier choices without even realizing it and this is the first time on a diet that I have actually changed my way of thinking. I still have my cheat meal every Saturday night and that will continue as this is my new way of eating.

 

Thank you, Drew and all the team for everything you have done for me on my journey, if it wasn’t for your guidance, support and those coaching calls I don’t think I would have done it.

I am enjoying this journey immensely.Yes, there are hard days, but my achievements are so rewarding. I was an emotional eater, now I’m boosting with energy, feel great in everything I wear and my confidence has got me feeling amazing. No negativity is going to sabotage my journey. I have turned 51 and health wise I was having all sorts of issues. So can’t thank you all enough for teaching me what I know now.

The thing I find best about this program is that is isn't all about losing weight its a whole lifestyle change! Mind, body, and soul.
