Christmas 2010 was the final straw for me! Nothing fitted me I felt my life just wasn’t what it could be. Once January came in I decided I was going to do something for myself. All my life I seem to have been looking after everyone else with the result I have never had time to do anything for myself.
I’m a mother of two and I also looked after my mum until her death a few years ago. Now I am a full time carer for my dad which means I have very little time for myself.
I came to Unislim in Belmullet, in fact I came to Maureen’s own home which I found suited me perfectly. It was the best thing I ever did. I never knew what a portion of carbohydrates was until she showed me. I basically didn’t know which foods were good for my body and which foods were bad.
Maureen encouraged and motivated me all the way through. I found the plan so easy and I never felt hungry. I now have totally changed my outlook on food. I know how important it is to nourish my body. Food is no longer looked on as a treat. My life is now totally different, my moods have changed and I feel so full of life.
I am never going back to the old me!!
