When I first met Gaenor she was like so many women I have worked with that have been battling with their weight for years even decades. She’d tried slimming clubs with her friends, she told me when someone lost, they’d celebrate with a drink and if someone had gained, they’d commiserate with a drink. She’d done Atkins, Cambridge Diet, Cabbage Soup, High Protein, Low Fat, and the list goes on.
Her lifestyle was busy, she had and still has 2 girls in their 20s needing her motherly support, a busy career, and social life, and was taking care of elderly ill parents in the hospital. So, hardly an ideal time to be thinking about weight loss most would say.
After visiting her parents in the hospital on the back of a busy day at work and a 45-minute drive to get there Gaenor had a solitary and sobering moment sitting in the hospital car she thought ‘something had to change, and it needed to be more than just another diet’ Over the years she’d seen her weight creep up to a dangerously high level.
Gaenor knew she needed to find something that would help her holistically, something that would finally help her the results she wanted and to be able to maintain them for the long term...
...and that's when she found the Coach Me Slim & Trim®️ program! Gaenor set herself a goal of losing 70 lbs, which was her weight when she got married 30 years before. At the time she set it, she thought it was an impossible goal, that at 55 she could go back 30 years...but...she did it!
Ps: Gaenor eventually lost 85lbs - 6 stone 1lb

from a size 12 to 8
"One of my main concerns about starting on the programme was motivation. It can be easy to get started but keeping it going can be hard when you know you've got a lot of weight to lose. I found the coaching very useful and receiving weekly support emails to encourage and keep me going.
I've made a shift and don't feel like I'm giving up food.
I've found a way of eating that I'm happy with"

'I think a weight loss journey is a very personal thing and I didn't want to go somewhere like a slimming club as I think that would have been the barrier to stopping me from doing this.
The great thing about having Erak as an online weight loss coach is I could just open my laptop and he was there. His support has been there throughout my weight loss journey and beyond achieving my goal in helping me to maintain it.

"I reached out to Erak as I was struggling to walk up the hill to my house my clothes were getting tighter, and I had felt far too many aches and pains for somebody my age so something had to be done. As a former Slimming World leader, I knew something about dieting but I was looking for something more than just dietary advice - I needed something which would help with my mindset and fitness. This program seemed to offer all three, so I made the call for an initial free chat which I liked as there was no pressure to buy anything. This program has helped me lose over 6 stone and reinvent myself in less than 12 months, and it feels fantastic!"

What made you reach out to Coach Me Slim & Trim®️?
I had tried just about it seemed all of the diets out there and was getting progressively heavier to point where I weighed more than I did when I was 9 months pregnant!
Every day I would wake up and say today’s the day but would start the day wrong often skipping breakfast and by 10 am I would grab some rubbish; crisps, cake or something like that and then say to myself I’ve failed again, and then comfort eat. It felt like I was on a hamster wheel every day repeating the same thing.
To make my situation even more challenging I was on anti-depressants with my confidence and self-esteem at rock bottom.
So with all of this going on in my head, I decide the only way forward was to take the control out of my hands and opt for weight loss surgery. As I found myself sat in a private hospital car park with my husband, I thought how had it come to this? It was at this point I reached for help on the Coach Me Slim & Trim®️ program which mentioned something about mindset as well as diet and exercise. Interestingly enough I had researched this programme before but had discounted it as I felt I knew enough about diet and exercise so what could they tell me. Well, I made the call to enquire about the program from the hospital car park!

Go for it, this for me has been life changing, this is not a flash in the pan. I’ve been doing this over a year now - it hasn’t been hard! I’ve made some considerable changes but in tiny steps so any one thing hasn’t felt insurmountable, so consequently I haven’t failed at it. You’ll be in a totally non-judgemental environment. You owe it to yourself to at least have a conversation with Erak!
What has improved for you since joining Coach Me Slim & Trim®️?

"After a kidney transplant, I’d gained some weight and as I was approaching 60, I thought I’d better do something about it. The information was very powerful and practical. It helped me lose over 3 stone and improve my fitness levels. I’m now back into a clothes size I feel comfortable and confident in. My improved fitness levels allowed me to enjoy a very active holiday in New Zealand"

'I just wasn't happy with the way I was looking or feeling and being a bit of a perfectionist if I didn't get everything right I'd just give up. With Erak's coaching, support, and accountability through the Coach Me Slim & Trim program, I have now changed my mindset and I'm much more forgiving of myself

My physiotherapist recommended the Coach Me Slim & Trim® programme to me as he felt that losing some weight would help with my back pain, so I contacted Erak, and after speaking on the phone, I knew that I would be working with a professional that could help me achieve what I wanted. Since losing 56lbs my back pain has reduced and my self-confidence has improved along with my energy levels - the whole thing has been a positive experience!

What made you reach out to Coach Me Slim & Trim
I stumbled across a story in a local magazine which was featuring some pretty impressive results women my age had achieved, but the thing that caught my attention was the idea of coaching alongside diet and exercise. I knew of several different gyms, personal trainers, and various slimming clubs but nothing seemed to be offering this sort of approach.
So I made the call and knew just from the sort of questions I was being asked that this was going to be worth a more in-depth consultation. The consultation helped me uncover some of my self-sabotaging habits, but it laid out very clearly how I was going to get the results I wanted. It didn’t appear difficult or complicated, and that did appeal to me.
What would you tell others about Coach Me Slim & Trim?
If you are the sort of person, who is open to being challenged positively to become a better version of yourself and are willing to do the work you will succeed and possibly achieve more than you thought possible.
