EASY Weight Loss Diet | Growing Veg Helped Me Slim (2019)


Unless you are completely new to this
channel, you will no doubt know that over the last year I’ve been working really
hard to lose weight. Today’s video is a record of that progress. Hello I’m Liz Zorab and this is Byther Farm and today it’s Christmas Eve
and I’m going to go and get my vegetables for Christmas dinner. So back
in December last year, very almost New Year’s Eve, I walked into a Slimming World
group where Sarah is the consultant. And at that point I weighed 216 pounds. My knees hurt, my hips hurt, even my ankles hurt. I felt very fat and very bloated
and I was really not very happy with how I looked and how I felt about that. So I haven’t got to my target weight yet, I’ve still got a little way to go, but I am
so pleased with the progress so far. MUSIC. So, just so that you know – I’m not being
sponsored by or associated with Slimming World in any way other than
I am a member of our local group and I and I go to that. Diets! Hmmmm. When Liz told me she
was going to go on a diet I thought ‘Great, carrot sticks, lettuce leaves, if I’m
good maybe the occasional slice of tomato. Fortunately she was talking about
doing it herself and not me going on a diet. But it can still have an impact in
my personal past experience. Actually it hasn’t done. Liz has been very carefully
and slowly and surely going through what she needs to do in order to lose weight
and she’s been doing a fantastic job at losing it. All the while I’ve been eating
the same quality and pretty much quantity of stuff as I normally would.
Only I have noticed though when Liz is really hungry my portion sizes go up. I
can always tell now when she’s hungry because I get three, four, 25 times as much as
I would expect and certainly normally more than I can eat! But I’ve been good I
haven’t eaten all of it, so I’ve only put on a bit of weight . And Sarah who runs the
group very kind popped over and had coffee with me a few days ago and we had
a bit of a chat about my slimming progress so far. Remember that first
night when it was 27th December. I do remember, it was between Christmas and New Year and you were my first ever Slimming
World member. So I was a brand new consultant, haven’t really launched the group
officially, but I did your new member talk. You did! I did yeah so I was
extremely nervous but I remember thinking at the time, whatever happens
now this lady is my first new member. And you’ve been a massively successful member. It’s been great! So it’s been a learning process because I’ve had to
change so much. Having all the vegetables and fruits that I’ve been growing in the
garden has just made it so much easier to lose weight. I’ve been able to just
come outside and pick from a wide variety of food and decide what it is
that I fancy eating each day. Have you enjoyed watching and not just me but
maybe yeah you know obviously not mentioning anybody because it’s a
confidential group but have you been enjoyed watching that transformation
it’s a hugely rewarding really that’s like the best part of the job that I’m
doing it’s seeing how people not just transform their body eat and their shape
but how they come out of their shower and become more confident and just join
as part of the group whereas perhaps their bit reluctant in the start to say
anything but as time goes on you can see them blossoming and like but having a
lot more input into what goes on in the group I’m really enjoying it which is
great and I love it so yeah that’s nice it is really really rewarding and
obviously part and parcel of the journey is the weight loss but it’s not just the
weight loss I think it is people do genuinely transform yeah
well and I know you know and we’ve talked about it several times but how
much has changed me outside of just losing the weight yeah yeah definitely
yeah my confidence is growing and just my relationships with people of green so
all-round it’s been a good a good process now this is so beneficial for
people it’s because they just feel so much better in themselves everybody has
got a different story a different background different reasons for wanting
to lose weight all sorts of all sorts of things that they come with and they
don’t just lose weight they lose baggage sometimes yes I’ve been using her
slimming program called slim world popular here in the UK but I do
know it’s also available elsewhere and it’s available online and the idea
behind it is that your ducks that steal the limelight you are very noisy yes you
are so the the idea behind it is that do you eat healthily you lose the weight
and then you can maintain that weight by continuing that healthy lifestyle I’ve
done it myself i I’ve been there and done it I’ve got
the t-shirt I guess I can really understand where a lot of people come
from and that first step through the door I took that step I understand what
it feels like how frightening it can be how nervous people are and how much
emotional baggage goes along with being overweight because I was there and for
me my journey was slimming world was relatively straightforward I mean I did
lose over 3 stone but did it in a fairly small time frame that I kind of
understand that everybody’s different everybody’s to me is different people
have different reasons for walking through the door yeah the best thing I
ever did best of all I ever walk through somebody
knowing that Liz was on this diet thing asked me what the downside was there is
a downside no cake I sure didn’t get off my birthday but
it’s one that she can’t eat so that’s alright but other than that there’s no
downside really there’s no we’re not eating rubbish we’re not eating bland
dull tired of forgetting to say not again food it’s all the same stuff we
were eating before it might be cooked differently you know and I’m not lacking
in taste or in flavor or in excitement or in enjoyment factor
I honestly believe that this is the only thing and I’m you know 50-plus as you
know I’ve struggled with my weight all of my life and this
the first time that I’ve ever felt that I found a plan that will work for life
it isn’t a difficult trying to follow it’s not something that you feel
deprived you know you can have so many different things that I don’t it isn’t a
diet it is a lifestyle change from day one when you walk through the daughter
today such a huge change physically which I don’t think you also give
yourself credit for but I mean when you put photographs
side-by-side that is when you can see I mean even you must be able to
acknowledge them there You’ve look tremendous
pleasure you really do so much healthier I think then the day that you came
through the door yeah I’m PD the plan does suit your lifestyle
as well their way they obviously you’ve got your shop in your back garden which
is fabulous I mean you’ve got access to so many wonderful vegetables and things
and it really has transformed the way that you look I think yeah and here we
are 40 something weeks later and I have lost 45 pounds to date with the help of
the slimming world program but with the support of Sarah
