Marisa Peer Success Stories: Meet Hannah, who lost 7 stone

One of the best parts of my job is hearing feedback from all the people I help and the Marisa Peer Success Stories. Hardly a week goes by where I don’t get a tweet, email, or Facebook message from a reader, fan, or follower telling me about the amazing progress they’ve made in their life—whether it be weight loss, depression, confidence and self esteem or fertility. Because I’m eager to share their great achievements (with their permission, of course), I’m introducing a weekly series on my blog called “Marisa Peer Success Stories.”

Hannah contacted me on Facebook to say that after nearly 2 decades of struggling with weight, she had finally found the answer with my You Can Be Thin audio and book. I could hardly believe her transformation when she sent me her before and after pictures—not only did she lose 7 stone since reading my book, she looks about 20 years younger as well! I love how she describes how easily the weight began falling off when she implemented my food advice. Just like with all the success stories I post, I hope Hannah’s story can inspire you to find the same success.

“My weight has been an issue for almost 20 years and having tried many diets/eating plans etc and failed (well yo-yo’d but never lost much each time) I bought your You Can Be Thin book and accompanying audio CD. I bought them on audio because I have experienced severe depression and my concentration to read is limited so the CD’s were ideal for me to listen to daily as I went to bed.

I changed my thinking about food and changed my diet. I still don’t eat wheat and rarely eat dairy. I lost a couple of stones just by that alone and then when my son announced his engagement and named the wedding date I had a goal and added in calorie counting and exercise, keeping to the basis of your book’s healthy eating ideas. Since November I have lost a further 5 stones 3 lbs, so a total now of 7 stones since buying your audio book. I am within a stone now of my target weight, I feel so incredibly different, from squeezing into a size 22 I am now comfortably in a size 12 and could well be a size 10 soon as my current jeans are fairly loose. From not owning a mirror and averting my eyes from shop windows in case I caught a glimpse of my fat self, I now deliberately look into mirrors and windows and think I look pretty good!

I can’t tell you how my self-esteem has changed and the best thing of all is, I know for a fact that the changes I have made to my diet and lifestyle are permanent, this is no fad, no diet, but a lifestyle change and the new me is here to stay!”

I’m so thrilled for Hannah and can’t wait to hear your success story. Email [email protected] to share. Marisa Peer Success Stories are thriving, please contact me with yours.
