Personal Weight Loss Success Story With Help From Howard’s Way
After seeing photos of myself on holiday with my friend who had previously done Howard’s Way, I said I really must do something about my weight. I was feeling so fat and desperate!
My friend showed me her before and after pictures and I was amazed at the difference. My main incentive was that I knew I was going to be getting married in the near future.
Starting Howard’s Way
I called Howard’s Way, asked some questions over the phone, booked an appointment and went along to sign up. They explained to me that because I wasn’t BMI 30, I could join the group but they couldn’t let me start on the programme until week four. This was so I finished the 12 weeks with everyone else (other than those who wanted to diet longer than that).
Even though I wasn’t actually starting on the programme I had to attend all the meetings and I must say I found this really helpful and very encouraging, as I could see how well everyone was doing and although I wasn’t dieting, I really did feel part of it all.
I Found It So Easy Compared with Other Dieting Plans
I found the programme so easy! I have tried all other dieting plans, but this was the best.
My meetings were really informative, very supportive and we had a good laugh as well. Everyone is in the same boat and understands what you are doing. I felt we were all going through the same emotions and feelings. Even though we were all shapes and sizes.
Since Finishing, I Have Felt So Well!
Since finishing, I have felt so well! Beforehand I always felt dowdy, now, I feel GREAT! If I wasn’t still coming to get weighed each week, I know I would have fallen by the wayside by now.
Things just got better! My partner proposed to me and we got married 1st May 2010……….what a lovely day! My picture says it all.
At my hen night I felt a million dollars! I wore a beautiful green/peacock colour dress and EVERYONE commented on how good I looked. When I think that this is six months after I had finished losing my weight and people are still giving me compliments on how GOOD I LOOK!
Howard’s Way Locums
I must finish off by saying, the encouragement and support given by Howard’s Way locums, even after you finish the course and are just popping in to get weighed is wonderful, because you are never criticised. Even if you come along and you have put on a bit of weight, they give you help and encouragement to take it off again, you are never made to feel like a failure.

Pete’s Story – 55 Pounds in 12 Weeks
I found the programme with the help and support of my Locums and group members very easy to follow and no problem at all.
Eating only the Food Replacement was a lot easier to do than I thought it would be too.
I had loads of energy
I found I had so much free time when there were no big meals for 3 months. I had loads more energy too. I actually tackled our garden, much to the delight of my wife, and it’s looked good ever since!
I went on a golf weekend away with a lot of friends and felt empowered, as I would have drunk loads and come home feeling worse for wear! I also went out lots of times with my friends and felt so much better for drinking only water!
I lost 4 stones and lots of inches
I lost 4 stones, in only 11 weeks and I did lose a little bit more when I was refeeding. Because I had lost in excess of 3 stones, my Locum was happy for me to start my refeeding a week earlier than is normal.
My body measurements were reduced quite dramatically, I lost 18.5cm (7¼”) off my chest; 22.5cm (9”) off my waist; and 11.5cm from my hips (4½”).
Personal Success Story With Howard’s Way Weight Loss Programme
When I first joined Howard’s Way in 1998, I was feeling unhappy and depressed, having tried every other diet under the sun.
I had seen one of my workmates who had been on the Programme and witnessing his results inspired me to come along.
Almost 14 Stones Lost
I find being on TFR (Total Food Replacement) simple – as I am an ‘all or nothing’ person, I find this kind of diet programme so much easier.
Having completed my initial Preliminary group with a weight loss of almost 14 stones, I have still attended Howard’s Way regularly over the years. From time to time, I have completed a Recovery group (minimum of 6 weeks on TFR, followed by 4 weeks of Refeeding) to help control weight fluctuations. I always find it easy, once I am back into the routine of TFR again.
What gets me through to the end of my weight loss is the fact that I can rely upon achieving a good, predictable amount of weight loss each week, so that at the end of it all, I can get back into wearing whatever I want again.
I Enjoy My Group
I love the social side of my group, together with the non-judgmental nature of everyone I come across at Howard’s Way – I know that I can come back whenever I want.
I am so grateful for the support of my Locums, who are there for me in the groups, and at the end of the phone if ever I need them.
