LINDSAY’S* STORY – In her own words:

“I have been a ‘diet victim’ all my life. That would be a good place to start my story. Since teenage-hood, I have been trying every trick in the book. Losing, picking up again, losing, picking up again. I was never ‘fat’ – although slightly larger than my peers. Being tall obviously means carrying a BIT more weight, but this has become such an issue for me that I was battling anorexia by the time I was 19.

A recovery from this occurred when it struck me what my illness was doing to my mum – I think it’s one of the worst things for a mother seeing her daughter wasting away before her.

I was at last at normal weight of about 83 kg until my pregnancy in 2005. This was an incredibly lonely time for me – my entire family overseas and the father of my little girl putting me through my paces – I turned to comfort eating and ballooned to a 122kg in my 3rd trimester – my gynae was very concerned about me – diabetes and terrible water-retention being one of his main concerns.

I became the mum of a beautiful and healthy girl in February 2005 and gradually began to ‘get my life back’. It was still very stressful being the single mum of a brand new baby, but I got the emotional strength together and frankly, the more I discovered that I was actually coping well on my own, the more I was empowered and motivated to get my life back.

I was living in Durban at the time and being a very large woman, was constantly hot and lethargic – I had no energy. I found myself not having half the ‘drive’ and mental alertness I had prior to gaining all this weight. I stepped off my porch step late one Wednesday afternoon and fractured my ankle. That was IT – the turning point. The start of wonderfully new and exciting things – and a complete journey of self-discovery and of finding my inner strength once more.

After using a few other slimming products, I discovered Herbex – my main weakness was sugar-cravings and a carbohydrate intolerance (diagnosed via blood tests). I started on Herbex and after the first week didn’t notice much difference, but by week 2, I had suddenly dropped 2,5 kg and those cravings simply were not there anymore – I was, instead, craving ‘fresh food’ and found that I could eat healthy balanced meals and still find enough of everything to satisfy my palate..

As each and every kilogram started dropping off I became more motivated and spirited to persevere – and for the first time in my life I was doing this THE RIGHT WAY. The HEALTHY way..

I started doing mild exercise like walking, rewarded myself with the most stunning dress when I lost my first 10 kg.

I only started dating again once my daughter was 3 years old and it scared the living daylights out of me – would a man find me attractive? How would he feel about me having BEEN so overweight?

I am now with the most WONDERFUL man – besides thinking that I’m the most gorgeous thing that walks the earth, he ultimately appreciates me for who I am – and he is incredibly proud that I have managed to beat this very sad time in my life.

I will never forget last December – my family came to visit from the UK and upon seeing me the first time, my stepfather walked straight past me – I wondered what was going on and 2 minutes later he saw my face and gasped “LINDS – is that you! You are SO amazingly beautiful! I thought you were someone I didn’t know!”

I am part of a large corporate institution, working in the fashion industry – I now carry myself with pride again, colleagues and friends find me stylish and attractive, I command my department with deftness, enthusiasm and energy and YES – MY LIFE HAS CHANGED!!!!

More importantly, I have found a strength and silent determination within myself – I did this, it was a huge mental decision, a life-changing thing – I would never have been able to do this without Herbex – it was a major contributor towards taking those first uncertain steps – and then giving it my all.

Thank you for an AMAZING product – it had certainly giving me my life back – that sounds ever so dramatic, but effectively, that is what it did..

– if I can do it, ANYONE can.

All my love and appreciation… For everything.
