£30K TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE: WINNER Ann Lost 2st 12lbs* & WON £1000 Cash!
It wasn’t until she saw photos of herself that Ann realised just how much weight she had put on. She hated going clothes shopping and dreaded having her photo taken. With a wedding to attend, Ann felt focused and determine and lost 2st 12lbs*, dropped to a size 10 and won £1000 cash in our Nov/Dec Transformation Challenge.
Here is her story…
New You: Ann, why did you decide to join the challenge?
Ann: It felt like one day everyone noticed me. All of a sudden everyone was telling me I looked amazing and then I went out with my partner one day and was looking back at the pictures and I could see the difference myself. I had to buy a whole new wardrobe as I’d gone from a large to a small, and the dresses I was trying on were stunning, clingy and really showed off my figure whereas before I’d go for floaty dresses that I thought hid my tummy and other parts of me I didn’t like. I was so proud of how I looked and wanted to shout about it. There’s nothing like trying on your online order and none of it fits because it’s too big. I loved reordering two sizes smaller and I started buying clothes I’d never dream of wearing before.
New You: Was there anything that helped you stay on-track while doing the challenge?
Ann: I know that I don’t want to go back to how I was so I stuck to plan as much as possible but I still believe that life and experiences are important so if there was an occasion such as a meal out, I didn’t beat myself up over it. I choose to make healthier choices but still enjoy it and then I’m back on plan.
New You: Throughout the challenge, were there any milestones that you hit?
Ann: I went to the wedding and instead of wearing a size 14 dress I wore a 10 and I felt spectacular! After that I maintained my weight by having a New You Shake for breakfast, a Meal for lunch and then a regular meal in the evening with my family.
New You: We’d love to know how you heard about the plan!
Ann: It popped up on my Facebook. I saw an amazing transformation post and a brilliant bundle offer so I thought I’d give it a go. It seemed genuine. I liked that there are real meals and not just shakes. It sounded less complicated than counting calories etc. I just grab 4 packs a day and the hard work is all done for me. I also like that I can eat similar to the rest of my family. If they are having pasta I can too and if they are having cake, I can have that as well.
New You: And how much weight have you lost?
Ann: I first dipped my toe into New You in January 2023. I did a small order and had great intentions but I wasn’t fully motivated. Then I was in a car accident in February so it wasn’t until March that I threw myself in completely. I was encouraged by an upcoming wedding that I wanted to look amazing for and by seeing pictures of amazing New You transformations I realised that it was possible to lose a noticeable amount by then so I threw myself into it. I started at 12st 4lbs and dropped to 9st 6lbs in around 4 months.
New You: What led to you starting the plan?
Ann: I hated seeing pictures of myself and going clothes shopping. I don’t think I realised how big I had become until I saw ring doorbell footage and photos other people had taken and I couldn’t believe that was me. I wanted to feel better about myself and fit into pretty dresses etc.
New You: And tell us about that first week…
Ann: The first 3 days or so were a challenge. You don’t realise how much you eat without actually thinking about it. Grabbing a biscuit in the staff room, tasting what you’re cooking, grabbing that chocolate bar at the petrol station… it all adds up. The first 3 days it felt like I had to retrain my hands to not just reach for things but it very quickly becomes easy, because for anything you fancy there’s a New You option and the snacks are amazing.
New You: What are your go-to meals & snacks?
Ann: Chocolate brownie! How is it a diet food? I make it with slightly more water so it has a lovely melt in the middle centre and it has little melted chocolate pieces in it too – it’s so good!
New You: How would you say the plan has changed your life?
Ann: I feel great, I’m happier and more confident. I’m not self-conscious, I love having my picture taken and I definitely enjoyed my recent holiday more, not worrying about how I looked.
New You: What is the nicest compliment you have received since losing weight?
Ann: I got told a lot all at once how great I looked, it’s an amazing feeling but I think a lot of it comes from how you carry yourself because you feel so good too.
New You: What would you say to someone thinking of starting the plan?
Ann: Go for it! There are some amazing bundles! It works out that one whole week of food is cheaper than a takeaway. It’s so easy, it’s all worked out for you and by day 4 it doesn’t even feel like a diet at all. All you need is a microwave and some water and you’re set. Days out are easy too with tasty bars and snacks. Go for it, you will not believe how quickly you can feel amazing.
New You: And then finally, what’s next?
Ann: I overindulged a little over Christmas as most of us do so I’m back on plan completely now to get a little weight back off, then I’ll be back to maintenance. The great thing with New You is that if I do have a day when I over indulge it’s easy to get back on plan. The meals are tasty and there’s so much choice and I know I’ll quickly get back to where I want to be. I am very happy staying around the 9 stone mark which is a healthy weight for my height too so I won’t be pushing myself for a big loss. It’s just about feeling great and new You does that for me.
Whether you want to lose half a stone or 10 stone*, have a slimmer figure, or are just looking to get maximum nutrition in minimum time, then New You can make the perfect partner to get you to where you want to be.
