WELCOME TO THE 12 WEEKS TO WOW! LIFESTYLE

A lot of our members will probably know that James and I read every single post and comment that is posted on any of our support groups.  Not only does it help us to understand the issues that our members have better but it also gives us the opportunity to celebrate the success stories of our ‘Wowers’.

Today I’d like to introduce ‘Wower’ Janice Devenport to you.

Janice had never had a problem with her weight until 2000 when she was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid.  Until then Janice’s weight was always around 10 stone which she was more than happy with.

Once her diagnosis was confirmed Janice was prescribed thyroxine which her GP assured her would sort out her weight gain too.  Janice had gained about 3 stone as a result of her thyroid problem and she was very unhappy to be weighing in at 13stone.

After following several different diets such as Slimming World, Weight Watchers, Rosemary Connelly and the Under Active Thyroid Diet Janice felt more and more disheartened and wondered if she’d ever be slim again.  The most weight loss she achieved on any of these diets was 8lbs and then it would all go back on again.  Janice felt like giving up!

Then in February 2016 Janice read an article in the Daily Mail about ‘Wower’ Lois Craig who had successfully lost weight with an app on her phone.  Janice thought it was worth a try as the app cost less than a week at her diet club.  So she downloaded the Virtual Gastric Band – Lose Weight Fast app and got started straight away.

Janice felt sure that hypnosis would help her as she had been to see a hypnotherapist a couple of years before to help her with her ‘chocolate addiction’.  At that time she eating big bags of Revels.  2 sessions with her hypnotherapist had got her over that so she started using the hypnosis sessions in her app with confidence that she would do well with the Virtual Gastric Band programme.

Janice told me that she found my voice very relaxing and she often falls asleep when she listens to the sessions even now. In her first week of using her app Janice was amazed to find that she’d lost 4lbs!  This was something that she’d never managed to achieve on any of her previous diets.  Leaving the ‘diet mentality’ behind certainly got her off to a great start!  After that she continued with a steady weight loss of around 1-2 lbs each week.

Often our members ask about exercise and want to know if they need to do a lot of exercise to lose weight with 12 Weeks to Wow.  The answer is ‘absolutely not’.  Janice, as well as lots of our other app users is living proof of that.  Unfortunately she has Fibromyalgia which prevents her from taking much exercise at all.  She has a dog that she does her best to take for a walk most days but some days she is in too much pain to even do that.

One form of exercise that Janice finds helpful is the vibrapower plate she bought as a result of watching Rick Hay on Ideal World TV.  Rick is the nutritional advisor to 12 Weeks to Wow and his smoothie recipes and anti-ageing meal ideas can all be found on our ‘Younger Looking You’ app .

Janice says she has found that her Virtual Gastric Band – Lose Weight Fast! App has truly changed her life.  She told me, ‘I now find it almost impossible to overeat and my portion sizes have reduced to about half of what they used to be.  I always take a child’s plate if I’m at a carvery.  It used to be my habit to have regular tea breaks throughout the day and I’d always have biscuits with my cuppa but not anymore! I drink lots of water and have discovered a love of herbal teas.

She has also discovered that soya milk is not good for her under active thyroid even though it was recommended in one of the diets she tried prior to getting her Virtual Gastric Band – Lose Weight Fast app.

Another myth that Janice has also dispelled is the old, ‘It’s so much harder to lose weight as you get older.’  Well Janice won’t mind me telling you that she is 60 and has found it really easy to lose weight, and keep the weight off with 12 Weeks to Wow!

Finally I asked Janice for her top tip for weight loss success and she says that it would be to always follow the guidelines 100%.

Janice was a size 16/18 and weighed 12 stone 2 lbs when she started using her Virtual Gastric Band – Lose Weight Fast app in February 2016 and she has now slimmed down to a fabulous size 10/12 and weighs a much healthier 10 stone.  She says that she found the free support group on Facebook  a great help to her and she is a regular contributor to the group offering inspiration, support and guidance to other members.

We’re so proud to have been part of Janice’s weight loss success story and over the moon that she is now one of our 12 Weeks to Wow Support Group Gold Members!
