I’ve been trying to manage my weight for the past 25 years, it’s never really worked. I thought this is just another weight loss programme that probably won’t work, but I’d give it a go.
What changed was when I first made my clinician, Tiago. He was so genuine, non-judgemental, and really interested in what I had to say. I felt I could trust him and as a result I was honest and wasn’t down-playing any issues I was facing.
I also did a HbA1c test at the start to check my blood sugar status. I was shocked to find out that I was living with prediabetes. The news really focused my mind on taking my health seriously.
