"The most recent was meal replacements and my little girl started asking why are you having those and not eating with us? "I had a bad relationship with my body and food since 13/14 years old and I don’t want to pass this on to my children, don’t want them thinking there are things we shouldn’t be eating. I don't want them to grow up and have the same bad relationship with food and bad body image as I had." Sara had tried literally everything under the sun. Weight Watchers, Slimming World, fasting, shakes, meal replacements, ANYTHING. They always failed - I would lose the weight and it would always go back on again. "I'm not thinking negatively about myself anymore, I'm looking back at how far I've come - it's been a game changer. I have yo-yoed for so long, but this time

Sharon Drew joined Transform21 in May this year and has transformed so much more than just her weight and body. Before Transform21 and joining Walk the Talk Life, Sharon had tried the 'starvation diet', Herbalife and various Clean Eating programs with little to no long-term success. She 'hated every moment of it and couldn't wait for them to be over'. Obviously, when it was over, she put the pounds on again and felt 'doughy'. Sharon felt her diet had been so restricted that she was left not knowing what to do - scared of eating fruit and feeling like carbs were the enemy! (They're not!) Then, she found Walk the Talk Life and Transform21 and never regretted it for a moment. The final Transform21 live-coached group with Rachael begins on Thursday 26th July 2018 and if you would like to book with £30.00 off, you can do this right now
