Churchill (I-Newswire) August 21, 2013 - Hairdresser loses 8 stone and drops 9 dress sizes using... a piece of string
Tina Oliver, 44, from Harrogate went from a 19st size 26 to an 11st size 10
Used to eat only junk food and had a dangerously BMI of 43
Lost the weight using a slimming aid favoured by Ancient Egyptians
Malory Band sits round the waist to remind you not to eat too much
It will feel tight and pinch if you eat past feeling full
You shorten the band as you slim, ensuring the weight keeps dropping
Tina Oliver, 44, a hairdresser from Harrogate, was inspired to drop the pounds after seeing a photo of herself weighing 19 stone and wearing size 26 clothes about to tuck into a plate of cakes and treats.
The image, coupled with a warning from her doctor that she could become diabetic if she carried on with her dangerous eating habits, was the final push she needed.....she knew she would have to diet or die.
So she invested in something that helped her lose eight stone and drop nine dress sizes: a piece of string....called a Malory Band.
The Malory Band is a narrow cord that sits around the waist that motivates you to eat healthily and to eat less
The band feels tight if you eat past feeling full, offering you a constant reminder
The band is fully adjustable so you shorten the band as you lose inches
Once you have lost the weight the Malory Band helps you to maintain the weight loss
Tina was inspired to drop the pounds after seeing a photo of herself weighing 19 stone, about to tuck into a plate of cakes. The image, coupled with a warning from her doctor that she could become diabetic if she carried on with her dangerous eating habits, was the final push she needed. Tina's teeth were rotting from years spent munching sweets, cakes and chocolate; and she had a morbidly obese Body Mass Index of 43.
Tina was given the Malory Band by a friend as a motivational tool, and also joined her local slimming club and the gym.
Tina said: "Last September I was so fat I could barely stand, and I struggled to work as a hairdresser. Seeing the photo of me in front of a pile of cakes was the last straw. I looked and felt terrible. Then I was warned about my long-term health by my doctor if I carried on eating as I was. It was just what I needed to kick-start me into losing weight and getting healthy."
By using a Malory Band slimming aid - a non-stretch adjustable cord that reminds you to stop eating too much, and shortened as the weight drops - and following a slimming plan, Tina has lost 8 stone in weight, 18 inches from her waist and 15 inches from her chest and hips.
Tina said: "It saved my life. Before, I would live on chocolate, biscuits and crisps all day. I was working as a hairdresser so it was easier just to grab something rather than have a sit down meal.
"At dinnertime, I'd have a Chinese takeaway or a pizza, and I'd drink cups of tea with two sugars all day. The only exercise I did was to walk the dog."
Tina is now preparing to do the 13m 'Great North Run' in September, something she had never imagined she could do.
"I could barely walk when I started,' she said. ''I joined the gym, and the support I have had there has been amazing. I nearly passed out in my induction but I was determined to slim down. Now I can run 10k without stopping - and I'm looking forward to this huge run. I never could have imagined this time last year that I would be able to walk a mile, never mind run a half marathon. 'I'm so excited about it, and I can't believe that I'm ready to do it.
"Being told I was borderline diabetic wasn't nice. I'd tried so many diets over the years but nothing really worked. This was the shock I needed to act.
"I started wearing the Malory Band. Every time I ate I would feel it tighten, and I'd stop eating. It made me realise I didn't need to carry on eating, and the weight came off so quickly. I was still having a healthy diet, but the band was literally reining me in and making me constantly aware of what I was putting into my body.
Saying that losing weight has 'totally changed my life', Tina added: 'I can't express how happy I am about losing the weight. I have more confidence and energy and am a much happier person. Before, I'd go out with my friends and just want to hide away as they were all so slim and healthy. Now, I go shopping with them and chat about fashion, I wear trendy dresses and look forward to getting dressed up for a night out. I feel young again.
"My husband Michael has always said he loved me no matter what my size was, and now he's thrilled to see me so happy and spends his life outside changing rooms while I try on slinky new clothes!"
Tina is thrilled to have hit her 11 stone target weight but is determined to go further.
"Even though I'm not eating anywhere near as much, I have so much more energy. My skin is bright and I look and feel so much younger. I just wish I'd done it ten years ago.
The Malory Band was a massive help as was having structured eating and exercise plans. Now I'm training so much, I'm expecting to lose another half a stone.
"And when I cross the race finish line, I'll remember how far I've come, and feel very proud."
The Malory Band is a narrow cord is worn around your middle, providing you with a gentle reminder of when you've had enough to eat. It gives you a state of constant awareness that motivates you to eat more healthily and to eat less.
