“The secret to staying slim is to stick with Unislim for the duration”
Since joining Unislim in 1974, Phil Coyne has maintained her target weight. Over four decades she has proven that the key to keeping your figure is to attend a Unislim class, every week.
I joined Unislim in 1974 and was one of their first leaders. As far as I am concerned, the secret to staying slim after you have reached your target weight is to stick with Unislim for the duration. When I joined Unislim I was newly married and didn’t have any children, and over the years as my life has changed, so too has my weight. Attending weekly classes has helped me to manage my weight relatively easily. I’m now a Free Slim member, which means that I attend for free unless I go over my target weight by 5 lbs or more. This is a great motivational tool for me and makes it easy to stick to my goals. Weight gain varies throughout one’s life, and you need vigilance to avoid putting it on in mid life. We all know that eating well and exercising regularly are the cornerstones of weight loss, but nothing beats facing the music of going to your Unislim class as a motivational tool.
I rarely go to a class when I learn nothing, either from a fellow class member or my leader. It is widely recognised that the support of a group helps us to stay on track on our weight loss journey, and this is certainly true for me and the many members I have shared a class with over the years. If you ask yourself ‘how can I reasonably eat well and be healthier’ the answer is by following a Unislim plan. Their plans are nutritionally sound and easy to follow; put simply, they are the easy way to arrive at a weight you are happy with.
Phil’s TOP tip!
When you are on holidays, think seriously about portion sizes. Often we are given portions that are much bigger than we need when eating out, and what I often do is share a dessert or main course. Ask yourself ‘how do I want to feel about this after I eat it’?
