I am 50 years old, married and have been unemployed for quite some time. I have not had a job for many years and after the financial crisis my husband lost his own job as well. That’s when I began to feel depressed and that I could not handle life. Food for me was a way out.
Over the years, I started living with phobias, I didn’t want to leave the house and the fact that I live in a village made me feel like I was hiding from the world. I was even afraid to drive.
The kilos were multiplying day by day. My hypertension, which is inherited and which everyone in my family has a problem with, was not being successfully controlled with medication. My cholesterol was off the grid, even though I was also taking medication. That’s when I knew that I was out of control.
As soon as my husband found a job, I visited Mima. With perseverance and support, we started Cambridge Weight Plan. I slowly began to lose weight and started to dig my old and forgotten clothes out of the closet. I felt that I had started to return to the world! I began to move more, to drive and look good again.
My blood pressure is now under control, my cholesterol is now normal and I no longer take medication!
I feel beautiful again and I regained the will to live once more – something I did not think I would feel again!
