‘Dream to be slim’
She had arrhythmia and a hiatus hernia; three years ago she was diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome, Insulin Resistance and, more recently, Fatty Liver Disease, and was prescribed various different tablets for each condition.
and saw the interview with Therapists Martin & Marion Shirran. She felt inspired to contact them, and has never looked back since.
, although up until the last few years, her weight only went up and down by a few pounds. Before going through the treatment with Marion and Martin Jackie admitted that she felt tired all the time, she was worried about her health and felt ‘worthless’ and ‘self-conscious.’ She didn’t eat big meals, but was simply grazing all the time – something she had never realised before.
I have a whole new wardrobe of clothes. I do lots of walking now, which I really enjoy and it’s effortless because I don’t have the weight”. She added that Phil and Holly had ‘changed my life,’ by pointing her in the direction of Martin and Marion. Jackie lives on the Costa del Sol and so when she realised the clinic was just down the road, she said it ‘was a sign’ that she had to give it a go.
Four weeks ago at the beginning of August 2018, I experienced Marion and Martin’s weight loss treatment. It has completely changed my life; The on-going support has exceeded my expectations. I have lost 18 pounds in seven weeks…..
Time has flown and so has the excess fat! I sailed through Christmas even feeding guests within my new regime without them knowing. They all commented on how tasty and lovely the meal was. I have been having regular chats with Marion and Martin, they are so supportive. I haven’t had any problems and have not even needed a “top up” but just knowing it’s available is a support on itself.
and sent them over, alongside the “Before” shots! Not easy looking at the before pics. Not just the weight, but what it represented of my life at that point. I look a lot more relaxed and happy in the latest version of me, and I’m in a fantastic place mentally now.
I pack so much into every week that sometimes when I look back I can’t believe what I’ve done!
I had full blood tests taken for both Cardiology and Endocrinology and both are delighted with the results. My blood is within all “normal” parameters. Over the last three years I have been on 3 or 6 monthly revisions. But on my last visit the cardiologist said just keep doing what you are doing and come back in 12 months. He shook my hand and congratulated me for turning things around. My endocrinologist wants me to return in 4 months’ time to double check my progress.
and I feel fantastic. I have energy, optimism and a positive outlook. Taking advantage of the treatment that Marion and Martin offer has transformed my life. I’m more like the optimistic young woman who I thought was in my past.
and then I will decide if I need to go any lower. I will update my progress when I reach that goal….. Jackie was so impressed with her results that just one month after she embarked on her GMB journey she recommended the Gastric Mind Band to her sister Sharon Ward.
and on the 22nd August 2019 they were invited to appear on ITV’s This Morning programme to share their success stories and explain how they lost 10 stone using Martin and Marion’s weight Loss treatment. They sat down on the This Morning couch with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Rochelle Humes to talk about their amazing weight loss transformations and how it had changed their lives!
and full of confidence, they have a closer sister relationship after supporting each other on their journey.
