My Story

Belmullet Belle, Bernie Dunne is on top of the world and loving every minute of her new life having lost 6 stone 5lb with Unislim.

Being fit and healthy was always important to me, in fact I used to be a fitness instructor. But after being diagnosed with an underactive thyroid, the constant tiredness I was feeling led me to quick fix foods for energy. The weight began creeping on and it wasn’t until after the birth of my second child in 2014 I realised I was the heaviest I had ever been.

During my pregnancies, I ate really healthy, but once my babies were born I felt like I could eat whatever I wanted. I picked on biscuits, jam sandwiches, skipping meals and then when I felt hungry, I would reach once again for high sugar foods to keep me going. I was cooking for my family, but I wasn’t eating the meals.

It wasn’t until January 2016 that I realised I had to make a change, my joints were starting to hurt and I had zero energy, I had to do something. I had heard that there was a fantastic leader in the Unislim Belmullet class, so I decided to go along. I actually went along to that first class thinking “I’m not 100% ready for this, but at least if I get in the door I have a chance of losing a few pounds”.  The Leader Maureen Gallagher was fantastic and helped me get my head in the game. I had a good chat with myself and decided this was it. I was going to give it my all.

I started by setting myself mini goals. Even the act of looking at my weight loss in small manageable milestones, like 7lbs at a time, it automatically removed the weight from my shoulders. It turned off the fear and any negative thoughts I had.

Now, after losing over 6 stone in only a year, I still can’t get over the difference it has made to my life.

I am happier in myself and no longer hide under the baggy clothes that I used to wear daily.

I did hit some road bumps along the way.  After losing 5 stone, I was diagnosed with stomach issues. My doctor has recommended that I mix up my foods to suit try eliminate any allergies. The great thing is, I can still stay perfectly on plan while I work with my doctor.

The Feed Yourself Fit plan is so flexible, that even if I have to avoid certain foods, I can make it work for me and still maintain my weight loss.

On the other hand, my health has improved greatly since losing the weight. I used to have muscle weakness and pains in my joints and would suffer with low moods – not any more. I am so proud of myself. I done this for me, and it has paid off.

My advice to any mum out there, is to be a little bit selfish – take the time for you and do it for you, believe me, you family will benefit too!
