“During my modelling years I could pretty much eat what I liked and it had no impact on my weight but since the menopause and as I’ve got older, I’ve found it increasingly harder to lose that ‘stubborn stone’. Hitting the menopause at 53 was a shock, I wasn’t really prepared for it. That’s when I began to change shape. I seemed to lose my waist line and my stomach started to stick. It wasn’t a very happy time as I suffered badly with hot flushes, mood swings and many sleepless nights. I’ve learnt to understand my symptoms and now feel that I understand my body better than I ever have before. Women shouldn’t be afraid to talk about the changes the menopause has on our bodies – it’s a natural process which will affect us ladies at some point.
I wanted to reach 60 and look and feel at my very best. I knew SlimFast had worked for me in the past so I decided to give it a go again – thank goodness I did! The SlimFast Advanced Vitality range ensures I get lots of essential vitamins and minerals that could help with easing symptoms of menopause (e.g. Iron – reduces tiredness, Biotin – helps energy yielding metabolism). If I’m honest I feel better about myself than I have in years! It’s not so much about the pounds lost as the energy and confidence gained!
For my birthday in September I wanted to wear a red dress that I haven’t worn for 30 years. Before I lost the weight all I could see were bulges and I didn’t feel confident. Since losing 14lbs I’m thrilled with how I look in the same red dress – bring on the party!”
