I’m loving the new me! … Thembile’s Success

Thembile 41kg later!

For the past 12 years, I’ve been struggling with my weight.

Each year I would start with a New Year’s resolution, only to give up and not succeed!

I could not play with my seven year old son.  I would drive everywhere, even short distances that I could have walked.

I battled to find clothes that I liked and would have to settle for any clothes that would fit me.

The last straw was on December last year (2011)  on our Holiday … we went on an MSC cruise over Christmas …  I got into a lift which was full – the last person to get it – it started making noise and I had to get out.  On my way out everyone in the lift started laughing … that was when I realised I needed to do something about my weight.

Thembile before TLC

In January  when I visited Cape Town, I heard about the TLC-Program from my sister and my partner and I decided to join!

We started with our Phase 1 TLC Started Detox Plan and  it went well.  My goal was to lose 39kg and when I started Phase 2 I thought it was impossible.  After only 2 weeks I had lost 5kg and I started believing in myself and that I could achieve my goals.

Two months later I had lost 18kg! That made me stronger and motivated me to keep going.

I have enjoyed the journey and TLC has changed my life.  I feel younger with lots of energy and I have a positive outlook on life.

I went from a size 46 to 36 …. I’m loving the new me!

41kg Later!

As I would love to help other people with their weight issues I know my story will be an inspiration to many people.

It can be done … I did it … Now you can!

Thembile lost his weight with Wilma and Fernando in Pretoria.

    I joined Tlc in March I went to weigh Once as I was starting my MBA block studies . I couldnt go and weigh during the times of weighing and I have told the person that I joined to that ill be starting @ varsity. I think she should have suggested that we pause the programme and start when I have time. No one has ever done the follow up with me since then no email no phone call. What should or must I do now restart with the programme pay the full amount that. I paid in March again.
