Hi Gerard and Bodyslims team, Just wanted to send this photo of my week 1 (on the left) and today almost at the end of week 8 (on the right) I was someone who joined not looking to lose a huge amount of weight. I weighed 12.7 stone when I signed up 12.6 by the time the programme started on April 27th. And coming towards the end of week 8 I’m now 11.5
I made a decision to try BodySlims in January 2020. I can honestly say, it is one of the top two most impactful decisions I've ever made in my life
13 st 1 lbs
This is my 3rd cycle of BodySlims and I’m down 80lbs since the end of September!. I’m finally within normal bmi and haven’t been this weight since high school. I could not be happier and Ger is right in that it feels brilliant and every day I get my present! A huge thank you to Ger, Sharon, Carla, the BodySlims team and the 80 friends doing the program with me and supporting each other!! Life changing and I’m forever grateful!!
I started my journey in September 2022, I was at my lowest, my weight was sky rocketing and my health was seriously deteriorating, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, pre diabetes and a very troublesome gall bladder. Having suffered for years unbeknown to myself with peri menopause I had stared my HRT and was feeling a little more level and able to tackle 'myself'.
My enthusiasm for Bodyslims resulted in me "persuading" seven friends into doing it, they in turn "persuaded" their friends and family with life changing results for all of us. One friend in particular and I have lost over 10 stone just between the two of us - more than I weigh now, imagine that, an entire person. During this year I completed my training to become a family celebrant and had the honour of being asked to marry two fabulous friends of mine (the bride did Bodyslims too) in France.
Dress up weekend, Damian below is on it 👍Hi all, I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Ger and all the bodyslims team. I was on the Jan23 program and am delighted by the results. I am down 36lbs in 10 weeks and feel totally different. The weight loss wasn't easy but the process was very simple. In essence just do what ger tells you to do and you will see the results. I still have a bit to go but now travelling in the right direction with some invaluable insights gained.
So I started my Journey on the 22nd September 2021 and I can say 10 months on my life hasn't been better. I finished my last course at the end of March 2022 and since then I have lost a few more pounds and have been able to maintain that over the last few months.
I have done loads of weight-loss programmes before and I was always great for a few weeks but then found reasons to give up! None of them explained that you have to work on your MIND as well as diet and exercise!! I don’t know how you do it Gerard but you put me back in control! You really made me feel the course was just for me and you were my personal coach!! The daily encouragement, the positive whispers, your belief that I could do it!
Just like to thank Gerard, Sharon and all the team. Today, I finished my 10k in 92 mins, bad hip and all. I have struggled with hip dysplasia and bad back for years but hoping this year to bite the bullet and get a new hip. Hardly able to walk after but very happy. 'Victor not Victim' as Gerard said.
Wow what a difference 10 weeks has made to my life, I am 21.8Ibs down and my journey is only beginning, I have loved the Program so much so, I signed up for the 2nd Program on the 3rd week of my 1st. My problem has always been keeping it off, it's hard work, no doubt about it but this time I have said...I am never ever going back, think Gerard is in my head,
I finally did my celebration! It is my second program but I didn't do the first program's celebration. I was really not worth it the first time (in my head). I had lost only 43 pounds, I told myself. You see I started at "super bad": Diabetes, high blood pressure, fatty liver disease, heart palpitations, excessive sweating and above all I was incapable of walking more than a few feet, less than 30 feet.
I have always struggled to lose the significant amount of weight that I needed to lose and to keep it off. To date, with BodySlims guiding me, I have lost 52LBs, dropped 4 dress sizes and feel the best I have felt EVER!! This before photo of me was taken in August 2021, taken by my daughter while on a day out and I was horrified by how I looked, but also by how unfit I was and what message I was sending to my children.
I'm on the slow train...have some ankle and shoulder issues which make exercise a challenge at times and the bigger challenge is my intolerance to many foods including most vegetables and worse still...eggs! But I am working around them as best I can and even managed veg a few times without being too sick so I'll keep trying....but accepted the slow train.
Dear Ger, Sharon and team, This is my progress so far and I am truly grateful for the program. On my third program and since this time last year 53 pounds lighter. 47 pounds on BodySlims Thank you all so much.
Fast forward now to the end of my second course, I lost 37lbs on the first one, behaved over the 3 week break and now I hope to hit my dare to dream weight tomorrow, losing 67lbs in total. I hated photos of myself but the first was taken before Christmas 2022. The last was taken this Monday Jul 3rd in Kildare Village treating myself to new clothes. Thank you!
Never in a million years did I believe I could get 3 stone off in 9 weeks. But here we are 1 week to go and I have done it (Not that I am finished really just getting started). Its amazing how the programme bit by bit changes your mindset and installs new habits that quickly replace the bad habits. Who knew that making lots of small good decisions can amount to a massive result within a few weeks.
Hi Gerard Sharon and the team I just want to to say a big thanks for your support in the last 10 weeks. I have to say an absolute great program highly recommended. I've lost 2 stone 3 and a half pounds in the 10 weeks and am feeling great, thanks again bodyslims
What I love about it is that it covers physical and mental health. When you finish you don’t feel lost at sea, you have been empowered to believe and know that you can continue on your journey with confidence. I now look forward to my daily walk and have so much more energy!
I can honestly say this has been the best investment in myself - both the mental and physical transformation has made me the best version of me EVER! I've gone from a size 18/20 to 8/10 using real food and walking to achieve this result - AMAZING! If you are ready to transform your life, sign up for the next cycle of Bodyslims and see your own results in 10 weeks.
Thank you all so much for the help and encouragement and many laughs over the 10 weeks I will be skipping the next program but I will be continuing to keep up the walking and watching my calories. Included is photo of me in a suit I could only dream of fitting into. (My yellow dress) I’d say Martha is so jealous. I have been spreading the word about bodyslims because everyone is commenting on the new me.
To everyone at Body Slims This has been the best thing I’ve ever done for myself both physically and mentally. I’m in such a happier/better place not only because I’ve lost weight but because I did this for myself. I put bodyslims at the front of my mind everyday and I’m really proud of myself for that. 2 cycles down and only 5lbs off my dare to dream weight!!
Hi guys, best greeting this time from Udine. I saw a statue and thought of Gerard’s talk. Seeing the best in everyone is such a gift: thank you for it. Also it’s true: I’ve gone from this pink sweater in my first day of cycle one in April 2022 to this sportstop in June 2023
Hello, Ger and BodySlims team! I was introduced to the BodySlims program by my friend, Karen Bowman, who shared her experience with the program she started in September 2022. Her results have been incredible! I was so inspired by her that I signed up for the January 2023 program. It has been exactly the motivation I needed to actually DO the work to finally lose the weight I've been trying to get off FOR YEARS!!! It's not like I haven't known what to do: eat less/exercise more. I just actually never DID it consistently. The mental fitness part of this program and all the daily touch points has been the key to success for me.
Hi Sharon, I really appreciate everything you, Gerard & all the team have done for me. My weight loss journey started with my first round of Bodyslims in September 2021 & now 3 courses later I have lost 42lbs (3 stone).
I have always had a difficult relationship with food but it was only after the birth of my son in 2011 that I put on a significant amount of weigh. I spent years yoyo dieting with a lot of negative self-talk to top it off. I always said "when I lose weight", "I will start Monday", "I'm going to doing this plan". Each attempt failed with the same excuses, as they always did.
Here are my before and after photos. I started my bodyslims journey on the 18th of January 2023 and completed 2 programmes I am now down 54 pounds near the 4 Stone mark. I dared to dream and my dreams have come true I am now down to a size 8 to 10 and have hit my target weight and more. its so true when you feel great you don't want to let it go.
Hello again Gerard, Sharon and the Bodyslims team! Having previously shown you my progress just 8 weeks into the programme (on the April - July ‘22 programme, when I had lost 16.8lbs) I signed up again this January and I have now lost a total of 29lbs.
Here is my story - I have been overweight nearly all my adult life. August 2021 was the lowest point for me. I was at my heaviest ever and I didn’t realise how unhappy I was. It was my son’s confirmation. I had bought a lovely dress, but it didn’t fit me (it wouldn’t even go over my legs). I had to go to my wardrobe to see what I could wear but nothing fitted me. I remember looking in the mirror that day and saying to myself I will NEVER, EVER feel like this again. I needed to do something; something had to change. I had a friend who was doing body slims and she was doing exceptionally well, she was inspirational, she had mentioned it to me earlier in the year, but I dismissed it. So, then I started looking into Bodyslims and thought what have I got to lose and the answer was nothing (except all this weight).
I've just completed my 3rd Session with BS as you can see I'm a different person today. September 21 was my first sesion, it came at a perfect time for me - I was at my heaviest but also at my lowest mentaly and physically - I needed something to turn my life around - Here I am 9 months later and 80lbs down - still on the journey but reaping the benefits every day.
I signed up for BodySlims and for the 3 weeks before I was going to cancel. I kept telling myself I didn’t have that much to loose, I could do it myself, boy am I glad I didn’t. My journey has been life changing not only for the weight loss but the difference it has made to my mental health and the way I look at food. 23lb down Thank you Ger and BodySlims
After having 7 babies in 12 years I had put on and taken off the same 50lbs over and over. After my 7th baby, I was at my highest weight and I had to do something. I found Bodyslims through “Half of Carla” on YouTube and signed up right away. I am now down 30lbs!! Because of Gerard, I now have the motivation and confidence to lose the rest of this baby weight!
I have battled with my weight for about 15 years and this is the first program that I have committed to 100% and have consistently lost each week. I have learnt so much about myself, this has been such an amazing journey for me not only with the weight loss but also the positive impact on my everyday life. I have signed up for the September course to lose the last 10lbs, add in the exercises and get into the maintenance zone under Ger's watchful eye!
Hi Gerard, Thank you for taking the time to get in touch. Although I have never met you, you and your team have been such a significant and inspirational part of my life for the last few weeks. I am thrilled with my weight loss so far and have signed up for your Sept programme to get to my finished destination regarding weight loss.
2 St 3.6 lbs
Thanks for the most amazing adventure
I wanted to share my experience doing Bodyslims. Before Bodyslims I felt completely lost as to how to begin to tackle my weight. My friend (aka "my Brian") told me about Bodyslims and I could see she was doing brilliantly! Around the same time my sister also told me about her friend on BS, so i took that as my sign to do it- a glimmer of hope that it might just work for me......and boy did it work!
I’m only half way to my target. But I’d reason to dress up last weekend as I was away. Therefore please see my before & after pics attached. First is from August when I was over 11 stone. The other is from last weekend when I’m just under 10 stone.
I started this journey September 2021 and I dared to dream....over 1 year later.....December 2022....I've maintained my 6 stone loss (84lbs) . How amazing is that!!!! Bodyslims has given me so much it's changed my life in so many ways.
I started at 189 pounds in January and I am now down to 149 pounds against all the odds. During my first program I was recovering from a broken wrist which I sustained from a fall off my bike at speed. My wrist was broken in three place, one of which is not healing. I had to have surgery for one of the other breaks and intensive physio. But my point is; I did the best I could during the first program and I had my arm in a sling while walking to help with the pain. I also had two molar teeth out as I had a cyst in one which was getting bigger and affecting nerves on my face and I got dry socket in the other. Nightmare.
What a fantastic journey I’ve been on since April this year, I’ve just completed my second cycle of Bodyslims and I’m now 33 pounds down and just 10 pounds away from my “Dare to Dream” weight. I’ve gone from 169 pounds to 136 pounds, a big weight loss for a short person, but much more importantly I’ve lost a massive weight off my mind. My mental fitness is the best change from this program, the rest is a bonus! Thanks to Ger, Sharon, Carla and all the team for your amazing work. Keep doing what you’re doing, you’re changing peoples lives and helping them bring their best versions back!
Can't believe I'm nearly finished my second course of Bodyslims. Thanks so much to you all. It's changed my life - my mindset is fantastic & the weightloss is just incredible - I'm down a total of 53.5lbs
So I have done it, I reached my dare to dream Goal. I was emotional and almost disbelieving when I stepped on the scales this morning. The last time I could have said I do not want to be any smaller is about 22 years ago and a short period 17 years ago before I got my first car and the excersise dropped and weight rose. I am lighter than my wedding day and my BMI is a lovely healthy 23.
I know you hear this every day but im beyond grateful, no words can express my utter elation and gratitude.I have "Me' back, the fun energetic, happy Noelle. Losing weight isn't the best part of this programme as ye all know.
Most men like me aren’t great at looking after ourselves with diet and exercise. The testimonials from the other men are a great help for me. I don’t mind sharing my experience at all as it might encourage other young men. However, this is just a stepping stone for me, I’ve dared to dream and don’t plan on slowing down until I hit my goal !
I came across Bodyslims by accident at the moment in my life that I probably needed it most. Battling with my weight for most of my adult life, with one step forward and two steps back I finally arrived at my 50th birthday in the lockdown summer of 2020 barely able to put one foot in front of another. This was a key moment.
12 st 0 lbs
Having been on and off diets since I was 13 years old (with varying degrees of failure) it suffices to say this was not my first weight-loss rodeo. However, what I did not realise before embarking on Bodyslims is that other weight loss programmes are actually weight maintenance programmes and the ensuing down weight one week/up the next is physically and mentally exhausting.
This is my 2nd course and I’m down 63lbs so far so delighted with life. I’ll attach a little progress pic, I had a wedding last week and felt amazing 💗
Today I got my 10% badge for this course and bought a size 10 pair of trousers! I've previously been shy of sharing pics – but I feel so fricking amazing and this course is so incredible that if sharing these helps spread the word then I'm very happy to do it.
This is me after 2x 10 week programmes. Total 4 stone lost . Thank you so much for everything. This is a life transforming programme I would highly recommend to anyone. Signed up already for January to get the last stone or so off
I dared to dream and dream I have!
Yes the starting dream is now first target and we will see where we end up.
8 st 3lbs
Good day. I would not normally do it but after a lot of thought I decided to go ahead as people need to know how life changing BodySlims is. When I started BodySlims I thought it was just another diet and I have had no joy with any diet.
I am a mom of 2 beautiful children and a Very Supportive Husband David from Kilmainhamwood, Kells, Co Meath, I'm 5ft 3" on a good day and I work 2 Part-Time Jobs as our local Parish Administrator and Bar-Tender in my local Pub (Keogan's) I will be 50 years young in September 2022 and will look better that I've looked in the past 20 years all thanks to BodySlims. I lost 63lbs ( 4 and half stone) in 5 months with 2 BodySlim Programmes. The Best decision I ever made.
Hi Sharon, It’s just simply incredible to think I have shed 28lbs in 5 weeks. Feeling great and can’t wait for the second half! Thanks so much to all in BodySlims! Pat Ward Dublin
Hi Ger, Sharon and all the Bodyslims team. I started Bodyslims on 19th January 2022 and at my first weigh in I was 195lbs. Today I reached my goal weight having lost 45lbs. I am so thrilled and want to thank you for an outstanding programme. It blows all the others out of the water.
I'm just 4lbs off my target weight of 14 stone. This time last year I was 18.5 stone and miserable. I've never been as positive and happy with my appearance. If my experience could help out anybody else, I would be honoured.
I would like to say a big THANK-YOU to Ger, Sharon, Tara and all the BodySlims Team. In the 10 weeks, I lost a total of 38.6 pounds and I feel absolutely brilliant!!!!!!
The photo on the right was 24th January 2022 the one on left today. I am on my second programme and cannot thank you enough. Whatever the magic is, I love it. 45.2 pounds down wow I cannot believe it. 2 pounds off my set goal which actually changed as I got on my journey. Thank you guys.
Hi Ger and Sharon! I put off doing my dress up night at the end of the last program as I was adamant that I get to my dare to dream goal before I celebrate.
Thanks so much to Sharon, Ger and the team for all the support, I have really enjoyed the programme, both the September programme and this January’s one have been great for me.
Hello again from Maryland, USA. I wanted to pass along some photos to you all. Down 10% and so far I have lost exactly "that" amount of shop manuals! My girlfriend Suzanne (who is also in the program) edited the photos for me, as I am not very tech savvy myself. Thanks again for all your support. Your friend, Phil Kavanaugh USA
