Louisa Russell didn’t have a lot of weight to lose when she joined Weight Watchers® in June 2011, but getting down to a clothes size that she’s happy and comfortable with has empowered her to love and embrace life like never before.
Her sexy new figure and new found confidence has even secured her the lead role in a new Weight Watchers TV commercial which airs this week.
"If you’d have told me 6 months ago that I’d be appearing on TV, looking like this, there is no way I’d have believed you. I used to hate having my picture taken, I always looked so tragic, but now you can’t keep me away from the camera. Starring in a TV commercial really is a dream come true - I feel like a celebrity!" she said.
Today, having lost one and a half stone on the Weight Watchers ProPoints® plan over 3 months, Louisa feels more fabulous and self assured than ever before. She has a new found passion for fashion and bags more energy to enjoy social soirees and nights out with the girls.
After years of ‘dieting’ and depriving herself but never losing weight, Louisa realised that she needed advice and support on how to adopt and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
"I used to feel hungry all the time, and inevitably would end up in front of the TV eating half a camembert and a chocolate orange! Joining Weight Watchers gave me instant structure to what I was doing and I could see real results. I have not had to give up any of my favorite naughty treats, it’s amazing. Before I was controlled by food, and now I’m in control" she said.
As a busy, socially active young woman, Louisa doesn’t have time to attend meetings, so she follows the plan completely online. Weight Watchers Online gives her access to the iPhone app which not only lets her track what she eats online, but it also gives her access to recipe ideas, and tools to work out the ProPoints values in foods when she’s out and about.
"It’s amazing" she said "Finally a plan that works around my lifestyle instead of putting it on hold".
